Taking back my voice

So.. well I’ve been quiet for awhile. This blog has kinda lost its focus for a bit. I had opened it as a personal place to retrospect. A place where I could document my own observations on many things. I often feel like I don’t have anyone that really understands where I’m coming from. The closest is my Sister followed by my Husband, but even then the thoughts that go in and out of my head seem to be so different than their perspectives sometimes, and I want a place I don’t have to argue or justify my position. Its hard enough when you consistently start with the “What am I doing wrong” point-of-view.

So I’m thinking I’m going to take my small little corner back. I’ve removed the link to facebook, so it shouldn’t auto throw my notes up there anymore. If people care to check in, they will check in on their own. Otherwise that fine. I’ve never thought that what I wrote was particularly entertaining, it was just thoughts and views.

A place where I don’t have to walk on eggshells and curb everything I say for fear that I’ll offend someone on my friends list inadvertently.

The choice is yours..

Perception is a fickle friend, easily swayed by what we’d like to believe, or what we’d rather others believe. We spend much more time than we should, tailoring our views to what is convenient, and justifiable. We could accomplish so much more if we’d decide to be honest with ourselves. Take our lumps, accept responsibility, really learn from them and not candy coat our reality.

We are only as much of a victim as we allow. The uncomfortable truth is that majority of what happens to us is a direct or indirect reaction to our own choices, so we do have the power to make a difference in our lives. All other truly random events are just that. We can sit where we are asking “Why me” or we can rise stronger from the ashes. It is a choice!
