Fresh Start

It is August 1, 2011.  Today I join the “Blog a Day” movement because the WordPress website says that it is never to late to start.  I liked that, so I thought, “I should start.”

I have been stalking other friends’ blog posts as well as those of people whom I do not know.  I love to read their words, hear them think out loud, and sense that they are taking me into a part of them that may not be shared verbally.

I talk a lot.  I talk a lot about myself, what I do for a living, my opinions, my fabulous husband, and my kids.  And I even talk sometimes about what I feel, what I hope for, and what I struggle with.  However, most of what I think stays inside of my head.  The reason for that is that my mind, my thoughts, my “thinks,” often race so quickly that I don’t have time to catch them, think them through for myself, or share them with anyone else.  I lose them before they are fully formed, but they leave a part of them with me that I know is there, that I know needs to be explored, and that I often dare not touch because the thoughts reveal so much about the sinful side of me that it scares me.

I don’t know if this is just some kind of outward therapy moment or if there really is something to be shared with the masses on the internet.  Perhaps I just felt the need to return to the “old standby” of writing a bit, of getting the thoughts out a bit, and of being able to read my thoughts and remember what I thought…a bit.

August 1, 2011.  My name is Stacy.  I am 37 years old, and I am about to start blogging.  Again.

  1. Woo Hoo, nothing like a start. I think “start” is the most powerful thing of all. Let’s not talk about finish, that’s a whole other deal. I am also about to start again, I will absolutely let you know when that is. Maybe it will be today, but probably not, probably it’s a little flung out there. But your start served me up a bid DARE.

    You can’t ever pass on a dare. Write-on, Jenny
