I've been thinking about life, and messaging, and purpose.
I've been thinking about my Sarky Tuesday posts (which I love!) and how I hope those who stumble across them find them humorous and fun, instead of rude and self-serving.
I've been thinking about how we see ourselves and how people see us.
I've been thinking.
I'm in a weird place with blogging at the moment. I enjoy documenting photos and memories, but I think I should start an online scrapbook if that's my point. I'm pretty in love with this dude who's kind of awesome, so I don't have a lot of angst in my heart and I also have no desire to gag myself with uber-romantic posts all the time. Blech. I LOVE to travel, and I've missed it, but moving into our new place has afforded us the budget to do a lot more of that travelling, so I can't even gripe about that. I don't know. So it's got me questioning: What is my message? Why do I come back here time after time? Is it self-serving (and is that okay?)? Or do I have something that feels important enough to share?
It's a little crazy how much of a person you see in their blog posts. You see our triumphs, but man, our despair is real. And in your face. Thank goodness crying-selfies aren't a thing. At least, I hope they aren't a thing....
So maybe when you're reading my blog, you are seeing parts of me that I am not even aware exist. That's kind of terrifying, fyi, but also a little amazing. I LOVE being a human. I love being a woman. I love being a 20-something. I love it all. I struggle with some pretty mundane life issues.

This is my pathetic list of "problems." Issues to work through on a daily basis. I met with a life coach recently, and she was awesome!, and she asked me some interesting questions. Goals. What would I love to see happen in a year. And based on my responses she said, "You know, some people are content where they're at and they're happy just enjoying it for a while."
Oh my gosh. Where is this post going?? I feel like we're flying blind, dear reader, but at least we're in it together at this point. So, ummm. Messaging. That's it.
I hope when someone looks back at my life so far they find these messages:
