A friend mentioned recently that she enjoyed my posts, but she didn’t like the fact that they were sad. Other followers have seemed to relate to my entries and have responded, mostly privately, sharing their own stories.
The journeys that I share, will have some entries of grief, heartsick, and low spirited moments. Actually, I find when I’m at my lowest, the words flow easier and much faster. I feel I express myself better when I’m in the valley. However, I hope to reveal a light hearted side to my writing as well. To write in the humorous style of Erma Bombeck would be an absolute dream come true. Now, if I could come up with my own, “If Life is a Bowl of Cherries Then Why Am I Always in the Pits book I would have it made!
Please don’t take my writings as a search for an audience to share in my gloom. I am not looking to invite my readers to a pity party. Overall, I am very content, at peace with myself, and yes, happy. My entries are merely an expression of a walk through my life. On occasion my walk will take me down a path of anxiety, dejection, fear, and pain. Other days will find me wrapped in a blanket of joy, exhilaration, and laughter.
Today I am thankful for the parties…the happy parties and even the pity parties. They form the person I am today.
