Everything’s Fine

Everything’s fine. Although not really. So I’ve decided to start a blog! You might ask why,¬†although you may not because it’s not like you know me or anything right? So why start a blog? I have no idea. I like to write and I like to read what others have written, but who has time for all that? I work full-time at a job that has nothing to do with my background or what my heart wants to do, but it pays the bills (mostly). And by the time I get home, I’m too mentally exhausted to do anything creative. I have two kids. 20 & 17 and they have their stuff. I have to make time for MY stuff. I have willingly sacrificed things since they came into the picture, but dude… it’s time to get back to ME.

So. There it is I guess. Writing. Among other things I’ve decided to do for myself, writing is, I think, the hardest because I have to sit down and make it happen, and I haven’t done that in awhile. I used to write all the time! It’s in my blood! But that’s okay, today is Day 1 and I’m not waiting around for it to do it’s thing. I’m making it happen. Once again.

I’ve also decided that I don’t have to be creative in my writing just yet. I just have to DO it. Maybe I’ll do a writing challenge thingie. Or use some writing prompts to get the juices flowing. Who knows. Today my goal was to just do it, as¬†Shia Labeouf so eloquently screamed at me to do.

And I have done just that.

Yay me.
