Well hello there. This is my first blog for this blogject of mine. A lot of people are doing "Project 365" right now, which is basically where you take a picture every day representing that day for 365 days, aka, one year. I have tried that before... and then broke my phone which was acting as my camera. After that happened, I gave up.
I have really been wanting to get into this blogging thing though. I have tried numerous times, but either reached a point where I felt I couldn't be myself for fear of what others would say, or I reached the point where it was too intimate to share with the general public anymore. I am going to use this blog as the happy medium. (Don't you love that phrase? "The happy medium." I love it so much particularly because of a character in Ms. L'Engle's books who was called the Happy Medium. I digress.)
For 365 days, I am going to commit to blogging. There is no particular reason why I chose today, Jan. 21st, to be the start of this blog. It just is. My birthday is in a few weeks, but I didn't want to wait that long.
Also, and I don't even know if I should mention this part, or just let my words do the talking. I am a believer of a particular faith. (Christianity, if you must know.) Due to this, I have felt over time that I couldn't express the things I liked because of my position in my faith. If you are someone who has ever made me feel that way, don't worry, I'm in no way angry. I thank you for keeping me honest. I just can't continue to have two sides of me.
I am in absolutely no way perfect. I have honestly called myself the "worst Christian example ever." I swear. I watch movies and tv shows that I shouldn't. I laugh and tell jokes that I shouldn't. I know I am so very flawed. Sometimes I feel so much so that I don't know if God wants to talk to me. For some reason, He normally does.
That's part of the process I am in right now. Most people who call themselves Christians, annoy the ever living heck out of me. I can't stand them and I wonder if that is really how Christ wanted to be represented. I'm on a journey of learning to be a follower of Christ, and not merely, a Christian.
I think that's enough said for right now.
Thank you for coming! If you are interested, stick around, comment, add, whatever. If you aren't, or you don't want your children reading me, that's totally fine. My feelings aren't hurt. I don't blame you. Please have a fantastic day!
That said, I'm signing off to finish making sushi.
Start every day aiming for fantastic,
