Blogs are for speaking your mind

Aren't they? Don't people usually start a blog so they can share their feelings and opinions with the world with fear of ridicule - or at the very least - controlled ridicule?

I know I started this blog because I needed a place to vent. I needed a "safe" place to share my thoughts and feelings but more often than not I am finding myself worrying about what people would think if I truly put something I feel strongly about in my blog. I'm going to really work on not worrying about that. I've always said that I'm willing to hear opposing sides as long as they are shared/voiced respectfully and without trashing my views.

I honestly don't even know how many people read this blog but I don't do it for the readers. I do appreciate comments because it lets me know that people either agree or disagree with me. I'd like to have more readers because eventually I would like to be able to share things I've written on here. Just have to figure out how to "protect" my prose so that people can't copy/paste it and claim it as their own.

I've changed the background because I was inspired to do an update by my very good friend Sheri. You should check out her blog,The Mama in Me, she's really insightful and very inspiring -- again hence the change in background. I hope everyone likes it. My last couple changes have been very dark in color, thought beautiful, and this time I wanted something that was visually very different and opposite of what I've had in the past.

I guess there really isn't a point to this blog tonight. I originally started it with a completely different topic in mind, but me being me, changed the direction of the blog because I was worried about what someone might think. Well, maybe I'll indulge slightly. Is it possible that I'm too serious and there's something wrong with me? I mean, is it possible that there are things that I should find funny and I just don't? I mean, is it wrong when someone takes a joke (or several jokes) too far or someone claiming they are so mature when their actions just scream immaturity and I just don't want to be a part of it? I don't think I am tackling this topic correctly - the lack of examples is probably not helping, but unfortunately I have no overcome my inability to care if the wrong people read this so I think I shall just end it here.

Hoping for another gorgeous day tomorrow...

First off thank you friend. I love that you have decided to go a cheerier route. It's beautiful very optimistic :)

To answer your question I'm fairly certain there is nothing wrong with you. I mean you're a little weird but so am I it's why we get along. Hahaha

Sometimes people do take things too far and most people who feel the need to CLAIM they are mature actually aren't. That's my short answer, looking forward to more! :)
