I was inspired to start my own blog by several special people in my life. To be honest, I’m doing this mostly for me. Love me, or hate me, I am who I am. Yes, I’m opinionated, and I often come across as a know it all. I will be the first to tell you that I don’t know it all. My best asset (and my biggest flaw according to some) is that if I don’t know it, I tend to want to go learn about it. I have become really good at research in the process. I tend to come back with answers to questions very quickly. To many around me, this is very off-putting. Well, do you know what? I don’t care. I am very proud for my thirst of knowledge. I like finding answers to tough questions. I don’t mind the learning process at all. In fact, I thrive on it. After all, if you stop learning, you die, right? Every day, I make an effort to learn something new. I like to start with my friends, usually. I have always preferred to learn from other’s experience than to learn the hard way on my own. So, I like to hear the stories my friends have to tell.
As a parent, there are plenty of other people out there to learn from. However, as a parent, I am doomed to learn from my own mistakes as well. Should I choose to share this blog with anyone I know personally, I would hope they will learn from my experiences with gardening, cooking, parenting, socializing, and many more things that seem easy enough. But, life is hard, isn’t it? I can guarantee that some folks that make things look easy don’t quite find things so simple in their personal experience. Here, I plan on being completely honest. I am human, and I fail. A lot. If you will, love me or hate me. Agree or disagree. Learn something or rebel against my train of thought. Use an idea or lose it somewhere in your memory bank. Just remember one thing. I’m doing this for me and my friends and family. You don’t have to do what I do. You don’t have to think what I think. All I ask is that you take a moment to pause and think about it.
