So why am I blogging? Really, I am not totally sure yet, but I think I need to say stuff. I have a lot of ideas about what I am “supposed” to say and how my blog should look, but really it’s about stepping off the edge and diving in, being vulnerable and letting others in. It’s about saying what’s on my mind and saying it not for approval, but because it’s part of my creative nature. It’s about helping and sharing. It’s not about if someone likes it or not, because quite frankly there is a lot I have to say that a lot of people probably won’t like, but I can’t write for them. I have to get out what I want my legacy to be, my fingerprint on this life, what my children will someday look at and say to themselves, “Wow! my mom was pretty kick-ass.” My grandbabies will hopefully say, “I wish I could have met her” or “Can I hang a piece of her art in my room, Dad? What? She made jewelry, too, and she was vegan? That is way cool.”
Yeah, I am vegan. I could write an entire book on my food journey, but I won’t because how way boring is that? Let’s just say I WILL write about veganism and animals…that’s just who I am.
I am also a Zen Buddhist in seminary studying to be a priest. That’s a huge part of my life and my journey.
I am an artist. I make stuff. I paint. I decorate. I do murals. I create. I love to create all sorts of things, and I guess this blog is just another outlet for creativity.
But most importantly, I am a mother. This is one of the main reasons I was put on this plane of existence was to be a mother. Talk about a book!!! Well, my two boys are the most important, awesome two boys a mother could ever have. I will write about them all the time.
I like to say things bluntly and to the point. I don’t like to sugar-coat anything. Say it like it is. Why waste time with anything less? Life is too short for guessing games.
Really I want to blog about stuff that may possibly help someone, too…help them to think outside the box, outside the matrix. I want to use the matrix to educate about the matrix….stay tuned. I want to empower people. I want to show them that they can do things that they don’t think they can do. I want to share my life in the hopes that it could give hope, encourage, and give determination to those who need it.
So if any of the things I write about bring up emotion in you or give you something to talk about, great. If you want to talk about any of it with me, that is cool, too. I would be happy to chat. I want what I say to create dialog. This is me diving in.
