So, WordPress is putting on a “Zero to Hero” Challenge to help new bloggers get started, and to bring those of us slacker bloggers back into the regular posting world. I thought, “Why not?” I could use some motivation as I attempt to infuse some life into this gasping blog.
The first task is: INTRODUCE YOURSELF: Write a “Who am I and why am I here” Post.
“Well, that should be easy enough,” I thought.
Sadly, I couldn’t get this song out of my head to think clearly. I assure you I am none of those things. :)
So then I started The List.
I’m Board Member.
But then, the list began to evolve into who I really am….
I am easily frustrated.
I don’t like to be interrupted.
I am a worrier.
I am a fighter.
I am learning to trust God.
I am fiercely determined to raise decent, kind, loving people.
I cannot imagine a life without my husband.
I am overwhelmed with gratitude at unexpected moments.
I am gifted and blessed with my extended family.
I value my friendships.
I find beauty in the simplest things, in the smallest gestures.
I like coffee.
I like chocolate.
I’m a lover of fantasy and historical fiction.
I love color.
I adore old architecture.
Disney World is my “happy place.”
I hate being cold.
I hate liver.
I despise dishonesty, disrespect, selfishness, and inconsideration.
Conniving people enrage me.
Drama Queens irritate me.
Loving people inspire me.
I am a Work in Progress.
As to the question, “Why am I here?”
On WordPress??? Or on the Planet???
I cannot answer either of these, but maybe as time goes on, I will find out.
