Well I can't believe I finally did it! I finally published my blog and its not perfect. My whole life I have been struggling with, well what have I not been struggling with.
Several books, articles, and conversations/experiences later, I realized that from childhood, I have been always trying to be perfect. I grew up in church, attended private school, transferred to public school, went to college, and tried to make a relationship work and the whole time I was just trying to fit the mold of being perfect and live up to the expectations that I actually created for myself. I don't place blame on anybody or anything and I thank everybody and everything that ever happened to me along the way.
I learned the best thing ever which is......"Being perfect isn't even normal. And I never want to be normal"
So of course this is a warning to all my readers that my blog is going to be imperfect, fun, informal, and whatever else it can be that is going to show you everything that I am. As you can see my blog is now called "Peace, Passion, and Procrastination" which is a random phrase that I thought of just today as I was leaving work. Partly inspired by my best friend/soulmate Lori Vining and her recent sign off from her video application which is "Peace, Love, and Sunglasses", I realized that "Peace, Passion, and Procrastination" is everything me all combined into one great phrase which is now my blog! You will also notice that the actual URL is still one of my old blog titles as I have been trying to find the "perfect" title before I published my blog for the world to read. And so today, I felt so compelled to write/publish and kick off this passion that I have for writing and I really don't care how not "perfect" it is anymore. This is a representation of me and so of course it can't be "perfect".
I want all my readers to criticize me on anything and everything. I'm going to just write and not worry about my spelling, grammar, or anything that will slow me down. I'm just going to spill out all the crazy stories, facts, ideas, and stuff that is in my head. Please follow me, read me, share me, and just basically support me and I will be forever thankful.
Peace, Passion, and Procrastination,
