I have been throwing around an idea for the last couple of hours…yes only a couple of hours, but think it would be something to help me with some of my self issues, a self therapy if you will, to write an autobiography of my life. I’m turning 50 next week and have started reflecting on my life and the things I have accomplished along this life as well as my struggles.
I know this is a scary and exciting endeavor; and hope it doesn’t hurt anyone’s feelings, but I believe it is something that I need to do…as I’ve said before a self therapy exercise. I’m not sure if I would ever try to publish it, but with someone that has struggled with depression and ADD my entire adult life without an official diagnosis I believe it may be helpful to people that are living with it in silence as it has effected many of the decisions I have made in my life and guided the course of my life.
I am planning on sharing some of the work here and opening myself up to the world…scary right?
I know my poetry already opens me up but this is on a completely different level and because I share these blog posts to the rest of the world I am opening myself up to criticism and ridicule to some of the things I’m about to share.
I look forward to this as I hope you do as well…so, with my 50th birthday coming up next week a new and exciting chapter begins.
