Why have I decided to write my first blog about insecurities? Why such a heavy topic right off the bat?
Everyone has insecurities. I am no different. I am insecure as a mother, wife, friend, and writer.
As a mother I worry I will not be able to protect my child from life's danger and heartaches. I worry that her schooling will not adequately prepare her for the future.
As a wife I am insecure about living up the the standards set by others. I worry about balancing my role as a wife while still taking time for myself and my dreams and goals in life.
As a friend I am insecure about what I have to offer others. Do I shut the world out? Am I a good listener?
My biggest insecurities have to do with my writing. My worries: Do I have anything to say? Will people care? Can I even write? Can I be witty, sound intelligent, gain the interest of readers?
I did not start this blog with the intention of writing about serious issues in my life. I plan to write about what is going on in my life, the good and the bad. Mostly the humorous.
Over the years I have come to notice that the little things are what matter.
Now that I have this bit out of the way and you, as my blog reader, understand my insecurities I can begin.
