Day 1:

Hello everyone or no one…

Meditation is not a way of making your mind quiet. It’s a way of entering into the quiet that’s already there buried under the 50,000 thoughts the average person has everyday — Deepak Chopra

I told myself I would start writing again. Not for any audience in particular, just for me. I have been having a hard time, what my sleep specialist calls, “processing” the world. He coins this as the reason why it takes me hours to fall asleep even after some of my longest days. Maybe this is the reason why I get emotional for no apparent reason and find reasons to be mad at my boyfriend. Anyways, that is not the reason I told myself I would start writing again, I decided to start writing again because it is something I love doing and I refuse to continue to deny myself of it just because I have an image in my head of what the perfect blog writer is supposed to be and it does not look like me. I refuse to care about how many people are reading this, or if my friends see this what they would think. I now write because it is what I want to do, it is what I love to do, and maybe I do write because I “process” too much. In that case, maybe this will help me sleep better at night. That would be a definite plus. So, if you read all this and you are interested to hear more about my life, read on my friend.
