You know, when I started this blog, I had a totally different image of what it would be. I had been lurking on a few different blogs, and they were all so well written, so witty, so informative. They were serious works of art. They were full of new ideas and innovative ways of presenting them. They were inspirational.
So I started out with this great plan. I was going to have a blog that was philosophical and deep. It was going to move people. It was going to make people think, change their lives, etc. I was going to impress others the way I had been impressed.
Then my personality got in the way.
See, I write the way I talk, and I talk the way I think. Not that I don't have deep, philosophical thoughts, but I just can't maintain that intellectual level for very long. I am too busy and too distracted.
I am not even doing anything really spectacular with my life. I am pretty average (shhh...don't tell my ego). I am not building my own eco-friendly home mortgage free. I am not running a farm that is on it's way to completely self-sustainable. I am not the type to take daily walks with camera in hand and take lovely pics of all the wild animals that I am quiet and stealthy enough to get close to. I do not have any fabulous skills that I can chronicle here. I am just your average jill going about my life every day. I work, I take care of house and kids, I garden.
Besides, I am not really the type of person that inspires others. Which is okay. I am content to go about my life doing what I do and what I think is right, letting the rest of the world do the same. Of course, if everyone in the world did what I wanted them to then this world would be a better place...but that is a topic for another time.
I am not really disappointed in this blog, or upset that it isn't what I had hoped. I am just noticing that sometimes life sneaks in and changes things on you when you aren't looking. After all, I have met some really great people through this blog. None of them seem to be bothered with the fact that I am not inspiring, so why should I.
