For those of you that know me, you know that I am a paranoid person. My imagination is my friend and it can also be my enemy. I can create the most horrible outcome out of any situation. I am good at coming up with the possible horror of every day life and the things you only see in your nightmares. My fear comes in at writing those things down. Sometimes I like what I write. Sometimes I love it, but then worry about what others will think. Sometimes I abhore what I write. Perhaps this is normal. I really don't know. The only thing I know is that publishing what I write scares me daily.
My son will be turning five this year so I have been talking a lot about him to other teachers. This Spring I have to make the big decision of if he should go to Kindergarten or not. He is so young and his motor skills aren't up to par yet, but he is so very smart with an unbelievable vocabulary. All the talk about him lately made me think of how dramatically my life has changed when I became a mother. Here are some of the ways (good and bad):
I am not a huge Valentine's gal; I would actually prefer to celebrate Friday the 13th more than Valentine's. I do give gifts and am thankful for any gifts I get. I mean.. who wouldn't be thankful for chocolate and flowers?!
I don't know if I am truly ADD or not but I sure do feel like it lately. I have so many ideas rolling around in my heard for potential future writing projects that I usually put one on hold and start another, and then put that one on hold and start another, etc., etc. Am I alone in this weird ADD writing world?! I hope not.
I am just always scared that if I don't do that then my ideas will disappear resulting in looking at a blank page with nothing to write.
For over five years, I have been a walking commercial for DHC Skincare. In 2009 I tried a sample of one of their products...and was hooked. Since then, I have raved about all their products to everyone.
Why am I telling you this? Because over a year ago, I took the chance and emailed them about their "Customer Spotlight" feature (where they choose a customer to feature on their website, catalog, etc.). This was out of my comfort zone, but I figured that they would never contact me anyways so why the hell not?! What a shock it was when I received a call from them this past Fall.
