Being Me…

and discovering that that is quite the roller coaster ride. Wanna come along?


Daily Prompt: Quote Me

Daily Prompt: Quote Me.

For me, it is a Winston Churchill quote: “Never, never, never give up.”  That has meant quite a lot to me throughout most of my life (well, at least since high school, when I first read it!).

It has helped through struggles in college – I held on to it as I moved on from engineering (definitely not me) to computer science.

It has helped through relationship difficulties – I never gave up hope that a decent person was out there for me.  Sure enough there was – and we’ve been married for 21 (almost 22) years now.

It has helped me through struggles with my daughter’s seizures, the years it took to get a diagnosis, and the struggle to accept what cannot be changed. (And it continues to help with that, of course).

Writer’s Block

I really want to keep going with this journal, especially since writing is painful for me right now.  But I can’t honestly think of a thing to write.  I’m afraid that it is because I’m generally publishing my posts, not making them private.  I’m afraid I feel like I’m writing for an audience even though I doubt that anyone reads this regularly.  Maybe I’ll try to write tomorrow, posting privately, to see if that will help.  I realize my life isn’t terribly exciting right now, but I should surely be able to write about something.

I want to vent about family.  I want to explore myself, get to know me.  That was, after all, the purpose of starting this blog.  I want to get my emotions out into the open.  I want to write about all of the things that worry me so that I don’t take them to bed with me.  I want to write about my worries for my children, so that I don’t carry them around with me constantly.  I want to write.
