I decided to start a blog, obviously. I have slowed down on journaling to the point where months go by before I pick up a pen. So, my thinking is that maybe if I change the format and if my audience is more than myself perhaps I will be inspired... and I think a lot of the time it can be easy to lie to myself. I hope public exposure can challenge me to be honest. I looked at some 30 day blog challenges and may follow one if I am at a loss of what to write about but this entry, this first peek into what goes on in my little brain, I thought it best to introduce myself, so to speak. I have kept a journal for 19 years and in almost every one I would introduce myself. So to follow suit i will continue that tradition here. I am fast approaching my 29th birthday and am starting to freak out a little about how quickly time seems to be passing. I have been a mother to an amazing daughter for 10 years now. I was a teenage mom. I have been sober for over 6 years. I work as a nanny and not a day goes by that I don't appreciate my job or adore the boys I get to take care of. I just started college again after a 7 year hiatus. My life is beautiful right now, and it wasn't very beautiful for a really long time. I was drunk for years, then crazy for years,then sick for years. I was on food stamps for years. Now I live in a nice house, have a calm brain and a healthy body, drive a new car... things are really good. Really good.
