Ahh.. it's been awhile. I don't know if this is for all writers, or just me, but sometimes I get in writing ruts. Actually a lot of times I do. Either I am burnt out from writing (which happened after my book release because of the constant promoting), or I can only write one thing at a time. Right now I am super focused on writing another book and when I am in that mind set, I feel like I have nothing left to give for blogs. Writing a book requires so much from me mentally and emotionally. I put everything I am feeling onto the pages I am writing, to where I cannot possibly write any more heartfelt words for a blog AND/OR it feels impossible to redirect my mood and write something light and fun. So for now, I decided to do neither. Since book launch I have had a lot of new followers, many of those who don't know me at all. I am going to do a few "10 things about me" posts- some just random facts about me, some fun, and some serious. This one is for my brand new followers and those who haven't read my book yet. Enjoy!
10 THINGS ABOUT ME: AN INTRODUCTION
I am an only child to a single mom. I do not know anything about my father (nor do I care to know).
I have been married for 11 years and been together for 15- we got married when we were 22.
We have 4 children together. I always wanted 5 kids, but decided to stop at 4. I also thought I would be a boy mom, but God blessed us with 1 awesome boy and 3 beautiful girls.
I decided I wanted to be a pharmacist in 10th grade- mostly because of the finiancial stability aspect of it. Changed my major to psychology, then to nursing, and eventually back to pharmacy. I have my doctorate of Pharmacy.
Before 10th grade, my dream job was to be a traveling writer. Think "Eat, Pray, Love"... that was the dream.
I ran track (hurdles) and played soccer in high school.
I started running again in 2019 and since then have ran countless 5ks, 5-ish half marathons, and 1 marathon.
I am an enneagram 2 wing 1. Definitely a people-pleaser, helper, type of person with a lot of perfectionist qualities. My love language is words of affirmation.
I love traveling. It's in my top 3 priorities for my family...I didn't travel much growing up and I want my children to have these memories as us together and having fun together.
My number one priority for myself and my family is our faith. I pray every day that each of us will be strong in our faith and will be lights to the world, in our own unique way.
That's it for today friends. I hope that gives you a better idea to who I am! I would love to know something about you, too! Comment below some facts about yourself!
