Making My Mark

6 years ago

I was sifting through the topics list for about 5 minutes before I gave up and started writing.

(I ended up picking "From the 'hood" because I truly had no idea what to put!)

I'm having a bit of a crisis. A crisis that I can only describe as a "mid-life" crisis, but I had my first one at 28, and now I'm having my second at 38. I'm pretty sure I had a mini-crisis at 18, so I'm just going to call this the "Curse of the 8's" and move on.

I work in a job where I get to do a lot of good for a lot of people, but it leaves me wanting more. "More" in the sense of I lack personal fulfillment.

I love writing. But I've never had the opportunity to fully realize that love because "life" got in the way. Too much to do, too much responsiblity...well, thanks to a wonderful husband, I'm going to dip my toe into the pool of my dreams. Hopefully, if things go the way I want them to, I can quit this corporate job and do what I truly love. 

Wow....that got deep for my first post. I'll blame the happy hour beers for the sudden introspection.

Anyway, I have a lot to do before I launch my blog. Yet, I'm on BlogHer blogging about it before it's even started!

I think I need another beer. ^_^
