So I have decided to start a blog. Why?
1. I’ve always wanted to write.
2. Creating a blog allows me to have an easy medium for doing just that.
3. Friends of mine frequently come to me for words of wisdom so I thought I would use this as an opportunity to engage in conversations that can potentially be meaningful or just mundane, either way interesting nonetheless.
4. It’s hard to converse with everyone as much as I may want and this gives me another mode of staying in touch.
Anyone who knows me knows, I got a lot to say! I am a daughter, wife, mother, employee, friend, and probably a few other things too! Based on those qualifications, hopefully each and everyone of you can relate to me on some level.
For my first blog, I want to share that my dad’s mom (my grandmother) died on Friday. I was not close with her, she had Alzeihmers for a long time and we were out of touch for many years. Yet it was still hard for me on many levels. I went to the funeral and did what I felt was important for me to do. Have you ever done something you didn’t want to but you did because you knew it was right? At what cost? I had so many challenges in getting myself there and putting a smile on my face and doing what was necessary. I thought, throughout the day, that I was putting myself through this at the cost of my wellbeing for no reason. Why was it important for me to suffer through something like this? In my heart, though, I knew I needed to do it. Have you ever done the same? I manage to get myself out of bed and to work on days I don’t want to…is that the same thing? At what point do you give up and say I have had enough, this is where I draw the line? Please let me know your thoughts!
