Pouring my heart out!

Ok, so I may have fooled you with the title. I'm not going to do it, I can't find myself to do it. I like to post happy blogs, fun things that we're doing, silly, random stuff that goes on around here. There isn't really anything that I need to vent about at the moment, but I have thought about it a lot in the past. There have definitely been moments in my life that I have just wanted to lock myself in my room and let the words flow. Of course, I have a journal that I have had for years. I actually did pretty well at keeping a journal in high school and college, but have done a miserable job the last 14 years keeping it up. The last 14 years have probably have been the most important time for me to make notes about the ongoings of my life. I have written a couple of times, but it truly is a pathetic number of times. Writing, using a pen and paper seems like a lot of work too. Pathetic, I know, truly pathetic and I also wish I could write they way some of you do. How you are able to put your thoughts on paper is so amazing. How you can pull me into your thoughts, how you can make me feel what you are feeling, what a gift you have been blessed with!! I guess we are all just given different gifts, mine definitely was not in the department of English and creative writing. I'm ok with that.

Anyway, I was talking to my sister Tiffany when she was out visiting this last week for my Grandma Beatty's funeral and I was telling her that I needed to maybe set up a private blog for my eyes only and she told me about this great website called I went to the site and it was free to sign up. It only took a few minutes, but it sucked me in quite quickly. It's a fantastic site that you can go to and it will get you started on your personal history and also you can go and journal there. It also gives you little helps if you feel stumped and don't know what to write about. I've only done it a few times, but I love the ease of being able to type instead of having to write it all out. It's nice to be able to think out loud in a way, but to keep certain things to myself. It's not that I don't want to share it with you, all my wonderful friends. It's just that sometimes, I just need to keep certain things to myself.

I thought I'd share this with you, maybe one or two of you have had the same thoughts that I have had.
