Am I a blogger? No. Do I have any formal (or informal) writing experience? No. Am I fulfilling a life long dream of creatively expressing myself on a public forum? Also, no. So what am I doing here? How did I end up here? What is my purpose in life, and why the fuck would anyone care what I have to say? Well, your guess is as good as mine. But nonetheless, one thing is certain. Here. I. Am.
As of today, I would describe myself simply. I am average. I have neither an abundance nor do I struggle. Well let me rephrase that, I DO indeed struggle in many aspects. Aspects that involve struggling as a wife, as a parent, as an employee, and as the many hats I wear throughout the day.
I find my “average-ness” relatable. I find my stories hilarious (though I may be the only one). I find the predicaments I get myself into entertaining and I find my dry sarcasm borderline inappropriate. I have found the humor in my everyday life and since I’m too average to have a reality tv gig, why not blog? I guess that partially answers the question as to why I’m here. The other half to that answer: A medical intuitive (yes thats a thing) suggested I start a blog. Now I know the first burning question you have, aside from the obvious, (what the fuck is a medical intuitive, as to which I answer “google it”) why would a medical intuitive prescribe a blog? Don’t they give you herbs and clear chakra and shit? Why yes, in-fact they do. However they obviously do much more. And this specific medical intuitive (all sarcasm aside) has had a profound impact on my life and the way I view it. Agree or disagree, I have found a part of me that I didn’t know I lost. She had suggested I start a blog to have a creative outlet. I’m sure you’ll hear of her more often so I guess I should name her. Ooh, I think I’m at the point where I say “all names and places, are based on real life events but have been changed to protect the privacy of those who did not sign up for this shit”. Dr. Paradise. Her name is Dr. Paradise. Why? Because this is my fucking blog. But Dr. Paradise has served her purpose for now, and I know she’ll be back soon.
