The Beginning

The whole reason I'm starting this blog is because I feel lost. I thought my life was clearly defined. I thought I knew where I was going and what I was doing. I thought I really knew who I was and what I wanted out of life.

That changed. Something happened that I'm not going into here. It's written elsewhere. But it happened. It changed me. And I'm lost now.

So I have to find myself somewhere. I have to redefine myself. I have to figure out who I am and what makes me well ME! So while I'm doing that why don't we all do that. Why don't we take a little journey together and figure some things out....

I'm gonna try each day to post a question and answer it. Just a simple question each day. I'm gonna answer it. Simple! Maybe if I ask and answer enough questions I'll get to know me. That's my part.

Your part is fun! What you all get to do is answer the questions too. But even better you get to pick the questions sometimes. Not all the time but sometimes. I'll do my best to answer your questions. So leave comments, ask questions, and let's have some fun!!!

Jessie,

First I'd like to say that I am very sorry for the loss of your mother. I can only imagine how you are feeling and hope that in time your heart will feel less heavy, and that the void you are likely feeling right now will soon be filled with all the wonderful memories the two of you created.

As to new beginings...every day is a new begining, a chance to change things, to adapt to things and to review all of your options.

Each day should allow you to ask, what can I do to make my life better? What can I do that will have an impact on those around me and in the end will it have made any kind of difference in their life or mine? What can I do today that will make me feel like I can shine?

We are all guilty of procrastinating when it comes to life so the best we can hope for is that we at least try to do all we can, to fit it all in and to hopefully find the one thing that fills our heart with joy and passion.

I think that in some way we all feel at least a little bit lost. Asking yourself difficult questions is the best way to move forward. Kudos to you for recognizing this and for deciding to move forward with it.

I'm visiting from the Postie Carnival.

Blogging has been very theraputic to me, causing me to look inward and to reach out. Mine was not planned to do that as yours was, but it's worked out that way. Good for you, putting yourself out there as you search for yourself. I wish you well on your journey.

Isn't it amazing how writing things down can make you feel less lost?

Great post for the carnival - I love the vulnerability.

I love what jbwritergirl wrote and like Skeet mentioned, blogging is so therapeutic because I can look back on it later and see how far I've come. Writing also helps me to clarify my thoughts and feelings - couple that with feedback from others and I really do gain some valuable insights through this medium.

Surfed in from the carnival-- Good luck on your journey to discover yourself. I'm always searching for the "meaning of life," so if you find it-- let me know. :)

I hope your pain has lessened since this post. I lost my mom in 1995 and I still miss her. I will go for days and not think about her and then I will think about something she did or we did and it all comes back.

Mothers and daughters are a trip. Wait until you look in the mirror and see her in your face.

I found that blogging after my miscarriage was very helpful to me. Hopefully, will help you too.
