So this is where I spill my guts.
It’s easy to tend towards the general introduction of “I’m a wife, I’m a new Mum…” but I’m so much more than that. I’m a daughter, a sister, a best friend, a cousin and a friend. I’m an old friend and I’m a new friend. I’m silly, I’m happy, and I’m a self-proclaimed ‘glass half-full’ gal. Hubbie calls me goofy, which I constantly deny and just shoot back that I got it from him.
I’m serious, and I’m nostalgic. I get teary at commercials, and lately I get teary at a whole lot more with beautiful baby girl in tow. She makes the world such a happy place and I constantly thank God for bestowing us with an Angel. Yes I’m a happy person but I’ve gone through some very tough times, so I can say I survived and have reached the other side. If you are reading this, yes, there is another side. Hope is a beautiful thing. As long as you have it, you have something.
I love to write: it’s in me, I have to do it, yet at times I hate to do it. But it always makes me feel good, always. I do it for me, but if someone else were to gain joy from it, well that would be just bloody fantastic.
My goal is to write for life. I’m trying to get there, but it’s taking its freaking time (as all good things do I remind myself).
I love my family, and I love my friends. I’m so freaking blessed, it’s not funny.
I love cats. I think crazy cat ladies are onto something.
I love coffee (a bit too much).
I find inspiration in books, in movies, in art, and mostly in life and the fantastic wealth of characters around me.
My most favourite quote is so dear to me, that I can’t bear the thought of sharing it with the world, in fear that like your favourite song, it would be overplayed on the radio to the point of being ‘meh.’ I can’t have this be ‘meh.’ It represents my passion for creating and making things happen, and every time I read it it gives me goosebumps and reminds me of my purpose.
That’s also me: mysterious. I keep a good dose of things close to my chest, trying desperately to stay original, new, different, rare. Yet simultaneously I’m here online saying “Hello! Here is all you have to know about me!” I’m a contradiction.
I find music the most beautiful thing, and if I could sing, I would probably be on that stage.
I’m that person who talks to their baby at the shops, and I don’t care if people stare. I sing in the car but feel self-conscious when I’m at a red light thinking that the person in the car next to me is watching, so I kind of turn my head to the side and mumble/whisper the words until the light goes green. I have tunnel vision, which makes some people think I’m a snob, but really I don’t care about everyone’s business and just like to stick to my own, thank you very much.
Passion is something that Hubbie and I share, and though it’s not for the same thing, we both encourage and drive each other to go for it. That’s the best thing in a partner, having someone understand your dreams.
I’m kind of everyone at once. Sometimes I feel confident and strong, other times I feel insignificant and insecure.
Most of all I’m a work-in-progress. I was Smik and now I’m a G. Stay tuned.
