Bitten off more than I can chew?

I really have no clue what I am getting myself into. That sentence is probably grammatically incorrect and someone with nothing better to do might just point that out to me. So be it. My goal with this blog is just to document my journey through life. As silly as that sounds, I just want a place to share my thoughts, experiences, and adventures both good and bad. I am sure there will be some growing pains and some missteps (does this thing have spell check?). But I'm hoping that by putting my thoughts out into the world I might be able to .... I'm not even sure what?!? Maybe I''ll make someone laugh. Maybe I'll be forced to push myself outside of my comfort zone even further in my quest to try new things. Maybe I'll have something to look back on when I'm old and grey and can't remember any of this. Or maybe, just maybe I'll inspire someone to be brave and put their thoughts out into the big, bad world too. It's kind of like group therapy from the safety of your keyboard. Oh hey, I just found the spell check button. Baby steps.

I had been thinking about starting a blog for a while. Usually when I was laying awake in bed at night and unable to get my brain to be quiet long enough to fall asleep. I usually ended up chickening out. It seemed like so much work. Did I really have anything that interesting to say? I mean, let's be real, I'm not some glamorous-jet-setter-fashionista. But the more I thought about it the more I felt I really did have something to say. And if no one read it? Who cares. It's like the saying "If a tree falls in the forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?" You betcha! (Did I really just say "you betcha"?) Ergo, "If I publish a blog online, and no one ever, ever reads it, does it make a difference?" The answer is YES.
