My First Time!

Ok, I have a blog! I love to write so some friends recommended I start a blog. As you can guess by my blog address, I am a woman with issues. I am 40 years old, just recently divorced, with 3 young boys to raise. And those aren't even my issues! I refuse to be one of those people who purports to be Wonderwoman....I'm not. I believe in being real and if you can deal with that, this may possibly be enjoyable for all involved. You may find some of my postings to be somewhat sardonic, but I will try not to be offensive. I cannot guarantee your satisfaction however.

Throughout these past 40 years, I have become what I would consider somewhat rounded, far from calling myself an erudite, but still enough to have strong opinions about things. I love truth...absolute truth. I believe it does exist but I do not profess to be the owner of all of it. I am intolerant of narcissism, so I will not assume that my thoughts and beliefs are one size fits all. But they are my thoughts and if you wish to comment or disagree with them, that's what the comment box is for. I am simply saying that I have become inured to all that my life has given me.

One of the reasons I decided to start a blog is because of the situation that I currently am in. Situation? Circumstance? Place? What is the word for what I am "in" right now? Being newly divorced is a multi emotional thing. I know I will bring it up alot. I do keep a journal for my more esoteric thoughts and rantings, but I figure that this is healthy way to express myself as well as share with others what it is that I am feeling and thinking and to know me better. The real me. I have no facades. I wear my heart on my sleeve and most of the time it's a very dangerous place for it, but I haven't learned how to get it tucked away yet. Some people may avoid me because I am like this...emotional, clingy, etc. I see myself as loving, giving, and if you are fortunate enough to have my committed friendship, then you will find that I am the most loyal, loving, and giving friend that you have. Some people love the closeness, others may find it too much. I try not be too claustrophobia inducing. I've gotten better over the years =) Just being real!

I like diversity. I am not exotic and I am fairly cliché in most things that I like but I am accepting for the most part. I will probably try anything at least once, within reason. There are things that I have tried that I won't ever try again...and I'm not talking about food.

There you have first blog. I hope you have gotten to know me a bit better. I hope this is a positive experience because if it's not, frankly....I probably won't stick with it. I'm no masochist!

Thanks for dropping by!
