The purpose of this blog is to figure out just who I am right now. No, I don’t have amnesia. I know who I’ve been. I’ve been a daughter, a wife, a sister, an aunt, a geek, an artist (not quite starving, but I was quite skinny), a web developer, a web publisher, and a vet tech. I’m still some of those things, but I can’t quite pin down exactly what I am NOW.
Ironically, as someone incredibly independent and very tomboyish, the word that best describes me now is… “Homemaker.” It makes me shake my head… how did this happen?!
Truth be told, though, I consider myself to be more of a one-woman maintenance crew than a housewife. Sure, I take care of the bulk of the cooking and cleaning, but I’m also the plumber, the electrician, the carpenter, the groundskeeper, the drywall putter-upper, the painter, the tile layer, the “don’t leave me alone for more than a few hours or you may not recognize the house when you get back” all around handyman.
I’m constantly redefining and rediscovering who I am. In the last few months, I’ve discovered that I’m NOT a total wuss. I’m actually quite athletic. I went from not being able to run one city block without gasping and wheezing to being able to run a 10k. I’ve competed in a mud run, and loved every second of it. I lift weights. I eat healthy… at least 80% of the time. And lost about 30 pounds in the process.
So now I’ve fixed up my house, fixed up my body… now it’s time to fix up my head. And that’s what this blog is for. To discover who I am now. To discover what happens when I follow my bliss.
