This might ramble a little, bear with me kids…
I write about most of the aspects of my life. I write about the difficult things, the mental things, the fun things, the personal things, the crafty things, and – as often as possible – the normal things. This blog is a snap shot of my life as I’m living it. Some days I have really boring things to write about and some days I have drama, but in all honesty, doesn’t everyone?
I probably write way more bad things about my husband than I do good things. Let’s be real for a minute – it’s more necessary to get the bad stuff off my chest. I do try to tell you about the funny, sweet, wonderful things he does – but sometimes it seems like there are more bad things than good. But he’s a good man at heart, and I know, deep down, that he really does love me.
I’ve got problems. I bet you’ve got problems, too. And it’s good for us to talk about those problems. You reading about my difficulties may make you feel just a little bit better about your own, and that’s good – that’s what I’m sort of here for. I want you all to know that you’re not alone.
I try to write about so many different things because my life is varied. No two days are ever the same. Some of the same problems keep coming up – like how to get Josh to better control his drinking or how I can get better sleep – but really, my life is all about the change that happens around me. And I love that.
My goal, if I’m to be perfectly honest with y’all, is that someone reads what I write and is able to think to themself, “wow, she’s got all of these challenges and yet she gets up and fights for herself every single day. Maybe I can do that, too.”
We’re all fighting. Some of us fight mental illnesses, some fight addictions, some fight bad habits – but we all fight. Some days we gain ground, some days we lose ground, but the important thing is this…
WE MUST NEVER GIVE UP HOPE.
