We Share

Share

I have this great friend. She and I have so much in common its pretty scary! There is like 20 years difference in age (she is younger than me) but we have gone through similar experiences and can share this with each other.

I guess what I’m saying is it’s really nice to have someone that you can share with and they know exactly what you are going through and can sympathize/empathize with you.  It’s also great if you find those not even close to you.  For example, there are so many here in blogs and on line on other social media that are the same and that can share similar life issues and occurances.

A lot of us have started blogs because we felt we had something to share and just wanted a place to write things down and be kind of like a live diary per se.  I started this blog for that reason, as well as share things I experience, like and enjoy sharing with others.  I figure if I like these things enough to share that there are many others out there feeling the same way and might appreciate it and share their side of the same.

Does that make sense?

It’s amazing the avenues we have available to us in this time, day and age that we never had before.  We can reach so many parts of the world now with the technology we have access to that we never could have before, even twenty years ago!

Its mind boggling at times to realize how many you can reach now. So, hopefully if I am reaching you, I am interesting enough and you will come back and visit more and share in your adventures and interests.  I love learning about things and people and talking to others about them.

Enjoy!

One Thing I Would Like To Do

IMG_4394

Sitting here at work, reading some blog posts and trying to decide what to write about next and post, I am realizing how numb at times I seem to be.  Like I am just watching the world go by and not even phased by it.  I know this is not true because there are so many times I feel I want and need to make a difference.  It is just finding that thing that would make a difference to somebody or a whole lot of somebodies!

I have things I want to do, places I want to see and people I want to meet.  I want to share these experiences.

I also want to dive into my creative side more. To do paintings, drawings, singing, writing….so many things!

But I also want to understand me some more.  Why I am dealing with the issues I have been dealing with, what makes them worse, how to make things better and be able to share these as well.

I go to counseling and read information and research to help myself.  By doing these things, I realize, if there is definitely one thing I would like to do, it is to let others that may not have to ability to do this, for one reason or another, to see that they are not alone and there are ways to take care of you and make things better.

If I could combine all these things in together to do this thing I want to do, how awesome would that be?!?

Hmmmm……

A New Me Rising

IMG_4392

As I come to this new arena in my life

I find I am further away from strife

I see the me I want to be

Working toward all to see

From guilt and shame, anxiety and fear

To understanding, enlightenment and being here

It’s amazing to no longer be self-despising

Because there is a new me rising

Had to share: All the Ways Wood Affects Your Wine, Explained — VinePair

Oak is winemakers’ salt. Used correctly, it can increase the intensity and complexity of wine, add attractive flavors, and elongate the finish. When it comes to “seasoning” wine with oak, winemakers have several options — and very different intentions. In white wines, oak can impart notes of vanilla, butterscotch, and caramel; in reds, oak adds…
