Let’s Talk

One of the biggest reasons I started this blog was to have conversations with other people. I figured I would post something interesting (at least in my mind!) and someone would comment that they thought I was brilliant or that I was a fool, or maybe just add to the topic and give me something to think about. Well, it hasn’t exactly worked out that way. Yes, there have been a few consistent readers and a few regular commentators to whom I am absolutely grateful! (In fact, I love you guys!!!) But for the most part, I often feel very alone in this endeavor. 😦

Now, just to make it very clear, I don’t want to promote myself (I’m nobody special here) or sell you something (but I do know of a bridge in Brooklyn if you are interested 😉) or convert you to my way of thinking (no comment on this please! 😀). Nothing like any of these. What I do want to do is  – talk. I want to get to know you. Connect with you and others out in the world. I want to hear what you think and what is important to you and what your life is like.

So, tell me, what do you think about, worry about, dream about – everyday in your normal day to day life? I’m sharing the things I think about here and I really, I mean really, want to hear what you are thinking about.

What do you say?

    I worry a lot about how I might not be doing justice to my eldest daughter who’s 8.

    I dream about moving my entire family across the country so that I can homestead and grow a food forest to support us. Right now I’m a stay-at-home mom.

    I love to be barefoot and my excitement at spring finally springing up is driving me insane! I can’t wait to walk barefoot to the park with my kids!

    • Thank you for sharing with me! I’ve tried in the past to start some conversations but … oh well, things just haven’t gone the way I planned. (Why I even think that I should know the way things should go is beyond me!) I am persistent though and will certainly keep plugging along. 🙂

      Your comment “I worry a lot about how I might not be doing justice to my eldest daughter” caught me a bit. I am also a mom of a daughter. She is 26 yrs old, married, lives near by, and is my oldest. For the first 21 years of her life I was a stay-at-home mom. I did loads of volunteer work with the school, church, band, Girl Scouts, etc., but made sure I was always home with my kids. Often I would wonder if I was doing the right thing for her, was I setting the right example? Now that she is married, has a home of her own, has graduated college (with honors!) and is starting to plan her own family, I guess I did okay. She turned out to be a beautiful woman who cares deeply for others and loves her hubby, takes pride in what she does and is someone I like to call my friend.

      Spring fever is getting to me also! But I’ve started the barefoot walking early, I figure I’m not waiting for the grass to grow under my feet! 😀

  2. I am really worried because I cannot find my passion. Like my career passion. I did a post on this two days ago. I really need help. If you can help me, email me and I will tell you more. I also try never to think Negative thoughts. My dream is to own a Harley Davidson. If I won the lottery I’d attend law school. I am a Christian. I am sick of being a barber and quit. I cannot find work in the paralegal world. That really sucks. So, I do Security work.

    • Thank you for sharing so much of yourself and being so open and transparent. I read your post on your passion for the law (and bunches of others also ;)) I’m not sure what kind of help I can be but I will email you and we can chat a little more.

      I’ve done the Harley thing btw – after a few years though I was sick & tired of the costs, the noise when riding, the perceived need to appear as someone I am not, so I sold it. My hubby and I are in love with motorcycling, we have been riding together since we met – literally 2nd date! But now we ride a Honda Goldwing. it lets us enjoy conversations, music, and just being together. And I can be simply who I am.
