Good morning, all.
If you’re not apart of my close friends and family circle, which I’m assuming is the only people reading this right now, please proceed over to the “about me” section and learn a little about the girl behind the screen.
You may be wondering why I decided to start a blog. You may in fact be thinking to yourself, or even saying it out loud, Nicole you are always starting projects, getting bored with those said projects, and never finishing them. This is true. I have always done this and will probably always do this. It is the number one thing I hate about myself and can’t seem to change it. However, recently I’ve been writing a lot for different reasons. I’m writing stories on my wedding website about my fiance and I. I’m writing letters to my son for his first birthday that’s coming up. I’m starting to write my vows for my wedding coming up in 10 short months. A lot of writing activities.
My fiance will read what I write (besides my wedding vows) and to my dismay, he pulls me aside and tells me that I am a really great writer. I’m not the smartest person in the room by any means, but I’m not stupid either. When he told me this it kind of took me by surprise. Then I began to really think about what he said. I do believe I am a good writer and good at telling stories on paper. Again, I’m not the best in the world, but it’s something I’m proud to be good at. And for him to notice that really impressed me.
I have friends who do blogs for fun and I always thought to myself, why? Well, because they don’t have kids and actually have chances to go on different adventures and write about them. I always said to myself, ‘why would I need to start a blog?’. My life isn’t interesting, it’s not like I travel every month or go to exciting places each week. But there are people like me out there who love to just read and here about other people’s lives and know that someone else out there is going through the same things you are.
Here I am and welcome to Eleutheromania. How did I get this name? The word kind of just jumped out of the screen and spoke volumes to me. I may be just learning how to pronounce it but the meaning behind it is truly inspiring. Freedom.
More to come, I hope.
