I don’t think I realized I had so much I wanted to share with the world until the idea of starting a blog entered the picture. My brain has been racing about what I would hope to know enough about to blog and, and in the end, the answer is My Life. I heard a message in my head saying “Nicole’s Voice” It seems so simple it's silly. I only have one. It’s mine. I’m going to use it. I want to share what I've so freely been given with those who would like to hear it. I want a medium of creativity that I can embrace who I am growing to be. A HUGE part of this process is really looking at myself and questioning who I am. Who am I? Who am I really?
Well, here goes! Here is what I know so far-
I am a woman and a mother of two incredible boys
a friend (still learning how to do it well)
I should be Gluten Free, but it’s a self destructive struggle my cravings seem to win
I have Hashimoto’s, battle iron deficiency anemia and really need my TMJ syndrome diagnosed so I can deal with it already - seriously, it’s been 12 years
I don’t like eating meat and dairy but have fallen into the same pattern again
I am in recovery, and the 12 steps have saved my life
I work full time
I need God in my life
I think photography is awesome
I wanna be crafty SO MUCH it hurts sometimes (maybe writing is my answer)
I wish I could be a SAHM, but really wonder if I am too selfish for that
I want to actually make and keep a budget, some time, ever, in this life!!
I want to do 1000 DIY projects around my home
I like making baby food, recycling EVERYTHING I can, and composting
I am scatter brained
I am getting ever nearer to “30” and not too concerned by it
I heard God tell me he wants me to share what he did for me, though I still run from that sometimes
I want to be the best I can and sometimes think I fail at it
I am pretty good at apologizing when I am wrong, but far from perfect
I want to environmentally conscious/morally responsible offspring
I love the word “Organic”
At work I am called “Little Ms. Sunshine”
It's (my) progress, not perfection. I'm thankful for that.
This is who I know I am to this point, and I wonder, if I start a blog, would anyone read it. More to the point, would it matter if they didn’t? I hope from it I can share my experience, strength, hope and meet others who desire to do the same. I don't know what may come of sharing my thoughts, vulnerabilities and aspirations with the internet world will be, but I appreciate being able to do so.
Until Next time...
