My Lawn. My Accountability Buddy. My Safe Space.
Thank you for stopping by my little corner of the internet. I really started this blog for me. I have listed the different ways that this blog is meant to serve and help me become a better human below, but if you find my thoughts useful or just like them that’s great. Thanks again for stopping by and I hope that you are able to gain something from my posts.
My Lawn. After one too many attacks on facebook I stopped being honest. It felt wrong and weird and dishonest. My ‘friends’ didn’t like what I had to say sometimes and felt free to come and let me know. I found myself wanting to share my thoughts and would go to start a facebook post and stop. Then I started a blog with my friend and found a place of freedom. This blog is a space for me to honestly express myself. I know the internet isn’t always the nicest place but I hope through this blog I can carve a tiny tiny corner where I can just be honest. My own lawn to decorate however I want without fear of attack.
My Accountability Buddy. I’m a writer. Nothing published yet but I am working on it. A professor told me once that the best thing to do as a writer is to write every day. I have been trying to do this ever since with little success. I need something or someone to keep me honest. This blog, I hope, will do that. The fact that I may gain followers or people may read this means that someone even in the slightest way is waiting for me to write. That bit of pressure will hopefully help me to write every day or near every day. The fact that this will be published online and be associated with my name means that I won’t just write crap.
My Safe Place. As a person I don’t necessarily share. I don’t allow myself to be vulnerable in front of others. I think this is because often times the world doesn’t feel safe. Being a child of divorce and a daughter of a recovering alcoholic may have something to do with why the world doesn’t seem safe. Also terrorist, war , conflict ect. Even with all this I believe in the potential of good in humans. I trust that a person can find their own safe space. Create a space where they can feel safe enough to be their truest self. This will be mine.
