When the time is right, write.
Confession: I am a first time blogger and I have no idea what I am doing.
My intentions here are very simple; I have thoughts and I want an outlet for these: a voice. I want to be able to voice my thoughts, opinions, emotions on the events that are happening in day-to-day life. This is a self-indulgent project on the surface, however I am not under any impression that someone, somewhere, won't be having similar, if not identical experiences, and that...is pretty cool.
Why now? My life has always been busy and I am very grateful for that. Recently, I have more time on my hands than usual. A variety of events have occurred recently at work, in relationships and finance that have left me with a flood of overwhelming emotions and I no longer have a busy schedule to keep me focused and grounded. So. I have decided to write about it! (Basically, cheap therapy)
Content? I can't sit here any tell you exactly what content will be posted here. I have no idea what the future holds, and if you do, please drop me a line! But, this is a place for openness and honesty (whilst showing respect and protecting the privacy of those whose experiences happen to cross over with my own). I'm not going to pretend I have an exciting life with lots of dramatic events. I don't. Frankly, it's probably quite boring. But there is absolutely nothing wrong with that.
Frequency? Who bloody knows? I mean, I know I said I have a lot of time on my hands at the moment, but that isn't going to last forever and sometimes I might not feel like writing. However, this is a commitment, and I will try to commit to at least one new post a fortnight.
Expectations? Am I expecting ANYONE to read this? Honestly, no. So if you do read this and a just a tincy, tiny smidge of anything I've said resonates or relates with yourself, please do let me know.
Why a peach rose? Firstly, I'm a huge fan of roses, and I'm a Rose myself. Secondly, peach is a gorgeous, yummy colour. Lastly, a quick google search will tell you that a peach rose symbolises modesty, sincerity and genuineness, and I think that is just perfect for what I'm trying to achieve here!
When starting a new project, I think it's always good to give yourself guidelines or objectives. So here are some of mine:
- I will be selective and only write about that which I have a connection with.
- I will be honest and open in my writing
- I will understand that opinions differ, and that it's a good thing. I hope you do too.
- I will show respect and kindness always
- I will keep it short and sweet (500 words or less)
Well, that's all from me for now!
