I'm back.... again

I haven't written since September 24. "Dear Diary, I haven't written since September 24...." ha ha ha sometimes writing a blog is like confession.

A few days ago, a friend paid me a ridiculously high compliment. She said I was a great writer and that my writing touched lives. I'm going to be honest about one thing.

I don't take compliments well.

I can hear my friend Michelle laughing.

Because I don't take compliments period.

But, that conversation is for my therapist. Let's just say -- I was honored but not sure if I totally believe her. Either way, she told me to write a book.

Well I don't know about all of that because truth be told I can barely keep up with my blog!

September! What's wrong with me people? I told my friend that sometimes it's harder to write when there's an "expectation" there. When you know people are out there kinda waiting for you to write something "life changing." Ok, maybe not "life" changing but.....still. I can't just put any old junk out there. It's just not how I roll.

Plus I've had sort of a rough year and writing about it is hard. Getting out of bed has been hard some days. OK most days. But I digress, as I usually do in my posts.

So this year I make a promise - - make that a solemn VOW to write more. And to write ABOUT more. I added "and a few other things too" to the title of my blog. So I'm going to hit on the topic of "a few other things too." And we'll see where it takes us.

I hope you'll come along for the ride!
