To blog or not to blog....

A compilation of the thoughts in my brain, the questions I have and the journey of life. Not meant to educate, but merely to entertain and (hopefully) initiate some good discussion. Comments are welcome...come join the conversation.

About epiphany

The "About Me" section of the blog.  For days now, I've been "racking" my brain trying to come up with interesting things about me for you, the reader that doesn't exist yet.  But, I had an epiphany this compiling a list of things about me for you, I'm really helping myself define who I am and what I find interesting about myself.  At almost 35, this seems more logical than trying to sell myself to other people with fun and interesting tidbits about myself.   Approaching this section (and really, the whole blog) as a self-discovery project speaks to me in a way that I didn't realize that I needed until now.  Facebook is great, but this is really a place for me to speak my mind in more than a 50 character status update. 

The minister at my church (and mind you, it's a UU church, so pretty darn liberal) challenged us to write our own obituary a few months ago.  I didn't do it, but maybe defining who I am now and maybe even how I'd like an obit to be written in 50 years versus the way it would be written now (worrier, yeller, overplanner) is another way to go about it.

The 30's are an interesting time in life.  The stupidity of the 20's is behind me, but yet I still am not 100% sure who I am like I envision people in their 40's are. 


  1. I love that you're reviving your blog. Writing mine has been a cathartic experience for the past 5 years, and I hope you have the same feeling about writing yours. I can't wait to see what you do here.

  2. So I just noticed a link coming to my blog from something called Came to investigate and... yay! So glad you started this. It looks great so far, and I'm enjoying getting to know you better.

    On that note, I'm not sure whether this will make you feel better or not, but let me tell you that you can be in your 40s and still not know who you are. ;-)

    Here's to finding ourselves at any age!

  3. Thanks to both of you for reading. I decided to go ahead with this for a few of them being that I admire your blogs so much! Finding it cathartic to get the thoughts out and if friends come along for the ride, even better. :-)

    Chris..maybe the 50's?? Here's hoping!

  4. That's kind of you to say. One of the best things about blogging is all the great people I've met, virtually and in person (current company included).

    And yes, let's go with 50s. That's still so far away that anything seems possible...

    Blog on!
