This was my original welcome page…updated several times. I had to leave it, to show my growth and how long I have dreamed of writing to how far I have came. First hiding who I was to now displaying my name and pictures.
Wow…it is still amazing to me how we can be the smae and yet so different at the same time…most of these words below are true…but I do want the kids and the marriage…but to be where i was…broken…marriage was too scary. I felt I was destined to be single and was ok with it…but I admit I want marriage and children. I want to travel and love and live. And I have found in the last 9 months that I absolutely LOVE where I live! I want to stay here. I want to be in my small town, with my family close by and my dear friends. But I do want to travel and live my dreams but from here. I will be starting my masters in creative writing online in June and am so excited! Yes…I will be writing and from here…and I have no fear or confusion about it!
Me….I am finally me…..
Some do not understand it and judge and finally I do not care…I must be all that God made me to be…and for the first time in my life I feel absolutely free and alive and real…as tears fill my eyes and my heart swells all I can say is…..
thank you Lord……
So, as life changes, so do we. Time moves on and we move on. We live and dream and breathe and change. All that I have chosen, all that has happened to me in the last few years has changed me. And I am grateful. I have to be. Because all that badness opened me to me. And I see who I am. I am not fully there but everyday I am closer and I believe we discover something new about ourselves everyday, if we are open to it. I am grateful to God for those He has given me to help me see that who I am is okay.
So about me…. I am a writer. I am a lover. I wear my heart on my sleeve. I am a dreamer and now a doer. I am feisty and truthful. I am open. I am grateful. I love music and how it makes me feel every emotion so completely deep. I am a sister, a friend, an aunt, a daughter. I have high expectations for myself and others because I believe that we all have the ability to rise above our circumstances and live. I love to travel. I love my family and friends so deeply; they our my life in so many ways. I love to learn something new. I love to be outside and just breathe. I like this small town but want to venture out and yet always come back home. I don’t want the house and marriage and 2.5 kids, aka the American dream. I love Christ and am so grateful for his love. I love my church. I love to have crazy colors of hair and wear funky hats. I love hippiness to a degree. I love to camp. I love a camp fire. I love to turn the music up loud and feel it in every once of me and sing at the top of my lungs while my mind forms poetry. I love to sit on the beach watching the waves roll in with my journal on my lap. I love to relax on the couch and watch my shows. I love to draw, write and create. I love to make other smile. I just love to love. I love to trust. I love to take chances and live life. I love. I live. I dance. I am finally living life to the fullest…. being me.

So I am definitely in a new place in my life now….a place where I am broken and I know I will get through it. I will grow and become the person God has created me to be. I can’t be “lost” in this forever…. Another year has gone by…I am now 26 years old and my life is def. not what I thought it would be. Based on being 16, 10 years ago, I thought I would be in california becoming a famous singer and would have gotten a degree in poetry. Married to the man of my dreams, whoever that may have been and had a least one child and wanting at least 3 -5 more…….
Man…..I am so far from what I thought I would be, where I would be, who I would be…..that is life and the choices we make. Sometimes it is what life brings us but so much is our choice. I chose the teaching degree, I chose to do what others thought I should. i chose to marry a non-christian, I chose to speak horribly to him and I chose to let him have his way, like a spoiled child and walk all over me. Yes, I feel I chose the life I have……it was my choice……. now we shall see where my life goes….
