Identity Crisis

What to do with this blog...ideas running around about things I want to explore, stories to tell, opinions about life and the world at large but how do I make it make sense? (Rhetorical question)

Here are some things I am passionate about:
  • Health - particularly how nutrition affects our overall well being
  • Children's Health (and availability of health care for all)
  • Cooking
  • Education
  • Parenting (not necessarily good at it - but passionate for sure and always trying to improve)

Things I am trying to figure out still:

  • Religious beliefs
  • Political opinions
  • How to balance it all
  • Domesticity
  • What do I want to be when I grow up?

It's a start. Posts will be in no particular order and may not even be regular but I'm going to give this blog thing another try. Hope you'll check in every now and again and join the evolution of ideas.

Wanna Be

I want to be a "real" blogger, I really do. I think I'm just a stalker though. I keep finding blogs I love to read. They inspire me to think about things in different ways, to appreciate things overlooked. They also validate some of my feelings about mothering and life. I have a zillion stories of my own floating around inside my brain but I cannot seem to get past being freaked out by how publicly accessible things are on the internet. I always feel a bit dishonest when I do post something because there are so many layers being left our for the sake of privacy. If anyone ever looks at this post, and if you are a blogger, how do you find the courage to be so honest? So vulnerable to an unknown audience? And even more so, knowing that people you know are reading, do you not feel so exposed?

I think I'm going to post a little more often this year. We'll see...
