Where have I been all summer? Nowhere. Here. Just not blogging. You actually might not have even noticed I hadn’t posted. I’m thinking you didn’t miss me as much as I missed writing. But, at any rate, I thought I’d blog a post to welcome me back.
When I first started blogging, I had all of these funny ideas. It must have a been a good month or 2. It seemed like everything I wrote was funny. And I really didn’t start out wanting to be funny or even trying to be funny. (Maybe you didn’t think it was funny. My mom thought so. She laughed hysterically at everything. Maybe that’s just what moms do. For your whole entire life–they think everything you do is wonderful :)) But that’s what happened. And then, even when I had other, non-funny ideas, they didn’t seem to fit the personality of the blog I had created. And the truth is, so much of life is not funny. I’m a glass half-full kind of girl and I love to laugh with the best of them, but let’s face it- life is hard. Life is complicated. My post, “Real Life. It’s Messy” came a little closer to the dailyness of my reality.
Now, I don’t want to go all Dr. Phil on you- but here’s the deal- I think I’ll try to mix it up. I’d like to write whatever is on my mind at the time. It might be funny. It might not be. And in keeping with this new freedom to hopefully write on a broader scope of topics, I’ve even edited the title of my blog to what was previously the subtitle, “Real Life. Truthfully.” (I will always love the phrase “Truth is Stranger than Fiction”–still words to live by :)) But either way now, whatever I write will fit. And feel true to me. And I hope in some way, when you read, it feels true to your life, too.
