The intro to this says “Tell Us a bit about yourself”. "Honestly, I don’t actually know how to do that. I suppose though, I will start with “When life gives you lemons, make lemonade”. This is a quote that I read for the first time when I stashed an ‘inappropriate book’ home from the library. The Sisterhood Of The Travelling Pants. The book itself was great, and I loved it, but what I really clung to were the quotes at the beginning of the chapters. This one in particular stood out to me. Around this time is when I remember consciously realizing my love for writing. A journal, aspiring novels that never got finished, poems, notes to myself from imaginary friends. Anything and everything that I thought about, I wrote. It was my outlet and my safe space. The place where it didn’t matter how dramatic I was, or upset, or happy. I could talk about it. Anything. For me, seeing my thoughts actually manifest on paper (or now, a laptop) made me free. Somewhere between finding my love for writing and growing up, however, I stopped writing. I had fun, did my own thing, and set out to do what I have always wanted. To find ‘the one’ and have a baby. That was it. That is what I wanted. That is as far as I had gotten. Three years, and a few long stories later, I found my ‘one’, and we got married, had my son and beautiful daughter, and lived happily ever after. The End. Except. Not. So. What happens after ‘Happily Ever After’? I mean, there is a movie on it. What now? Because as far as I was concerned, I actually “got what I wanted”. Somewhere in between finding my love for writing, and growing up, I had stopped ‘picking up the pen’. Somewhere I had stopped doing what I loved. Somewhere, I had stopped loving myself. I almost felt like I resented getting what I wanted. I didn’t even really understand why, and the confusion caused a lot of other long story problems with my husband. After an indeterminate amount of time, I decided that the problem was one of two things. It was either him, or it was me. I mean, in a relationship of two, what are the other options. And I’d be damned if it was going to be me. (Spoiler Alert: It was me.) Now. It wasn’t me in the sense that “all of our problems were my fault”. When I stopped writing, I stopped being able to express myself. I would try to explain myself to my husband the way that I understood them. I wasn’t thinking about how he would interpret what I was saying. I was talking to him in French, and he was talking in German, and we were equally as frustrated with each other. So, after quite awhile, and long stories that can be found in my subsequent posts, I came to one conclusion. Buy a baseball glove; Grab your sugar; Find your cutting board; Sharpen your knife; Use those lemons to make the best damn lemonade anyone has ever tasted." This is a bit of my personal writing about myself, and a brief overview of what I am capable of and who I am.
