A New Adventure Begins…
“Good company in a journey makes the way seem shorter.” — Izaak Walton
Just wow, I can’t believe that I’m doing this, my first official blog, at my age too! A 50 something young lady, starting a new chapter in my life. I don’t like change, but change is good, it keeps the spirit from getting stagnant. My children are now grown and have children of their own, so what am I to do with the rest of my life? For almost 30 years I’ve lived for someone else, their needs being my first priority, the driving force behind all my life decisions. I can’t really say that I ever learned how to live for me, even when I was younger it seemed that I spent most of my energy trying to please someone else, first my parents and then later some silly boy that I believed I couldn’t live without. Funny how things change, albeit very slowly in my case. So now I’m finally at that point, asking that question, what do I want to be when I grow up?
I guess I forgot to mention a few things earlier, like umm, my name, my name is Lacey, nice to meet you! I’m a Carolina girl and pretty easy-going I think, as long as you don’t “poke the bear” because I can be pretty grumpy in a quiet, I digest everything and remember, you’ll pay for it later, kind of way! (JK) 🙂 I like to keep to myself and I keep my world really small, so if you’re in it then you must be pretty darn special! I like to create art and to craft, write stuff and read (I simply adore Stephen King!) and I play on my Xbox and laptop, and I dream of running away, seriously, everyday. I guess one small thing that I should probably mention is that all my life I’ve suffered from crippling depression and all the fun that adventure entails. And since reaching adulthood, let’s throw in some social anxiety, a healthy dollop of OCD and a sprinkling of ADD as well. But let me add that, while not completely conquering, I have learned to deal with these little life hiccups, with a lot of prayer and faith, and a whole lot of “flying by the seat of my pants”! I think this blog will be beneficial for me to document as I continue to grow and hopefully maybe it will help someone who follows it. ❤ Lacey
