I have been told I have a way with words. I always thought it was a “right-brain/left brain” function in which the side that controls language and grammar was somehow slightly enhanced in my brain. But the more I think about it, the more I think it may be something more.
My life has been full of ups and down, too many to go into at any one point in time. But through it all, I always had the written word. Whether it was perfecting my ABC’s as a child or venting my frustrations in an (unfortunately) public LiveJournal forum, I always had control over what I would or could write. Even if it was an assignment at school, I was the one allowed to express my thoughts on the subject, and the more I did it, the more I enjoyed it.
So here we are, as I come back to a “semi” full circle, expressing myself in a public forum yet again, but I now have so much more experience under my belt so as to know what to say and what to keep to myself.
My hope is that I can combine my very unique life (yes, we all have them, unique lives that is) and my supposed “way with words” to let some into my life and possibly inspire others to write down their own thoughts, feelings, whatever it is you feel is important to say. I feel Facebook is giving everyone an outlet to express themselves, which I think can be great, but it can also be detrimental if you’re not careful. I have learned that from both things I have posted as well as things others have posted.
So as I try to “turn over a new leaf” and limit my “rants” or “raves” on social media, I hope this will be a fine, yet possibly more eloquent replacement.
Oh, and thanks to my friend Kayleigh for inspiring me to start my blog. I’ve been thinking about it for a while, but she showed me how fun it can be.
