Hey There! I guess I should at least introduce myself. 🙂
I really don’t know what to say here. I feel like I’m on an interview being asked, “Tell me about yourself.” I never know how to answer that question, do you? I’m so glad the days of interviewing are behind me. At least I hope.
So let’s see…I’m a mother to twin boys. I’m a middle school counselor with over 20 years experience and I love it! Middle school has its pros and cons, but I love working with this age group.
I enjoy life and positive living. Life is too short to be weighed down by negativity. I love spending time with family and friends and love meeting new people.
I love to laugh. It is my own personal form of communication with others. Laughter to me is a universal language of friendship. For those who know me, they know me best through my laughter. Its more than just a chuckle or a grimace on my face. It’s an embodiment of my soul that I share with others.
I have never been much of a writer and never quite understood how to write until the constant redo of papers in college with red marks. I still feel that some of my professors were extremely harsh and just didn’t like my style. Throughout the years, we grew to compromise.
I began blogging as a way of expressing my inner most thoughts with others. Its like having a personal diary with the world. I would review places I’d visited on various sites and received good feedback. I would read other blogs and get inspired by them. Sometimes I noticed my comments could be long winded and felt I needed to have a place to write when that fire was lit under me.
When I first began, I really didn’t have a clear focus and to be honest…I still don’t. I just write from my heart about my everyday journeys adventures. Random thoughts come to mind and I begin to write. Sometimes, I can see a vision for an item, but don’t quite know where to begin. So, I just quickly jot something down in case more thoughts on the issue come up later, which has happened.
So what can you expect here at Sunshine and Elephants? A bunch of random thoughts, with honest details, that sum up this quirky thing I call life! I want my readers to get a sense of self-acceptance. Its okay to be you because no one else can do it better. Thanks for stopping by and come again soon.
