Raw Truth

I apologize for not keeping up to date here. Between the holidays and some personal issues, the blog hasn’t been top priority. What I’m going to share today is something I wrote two years ago, originally posted on my blog (which I no longer have). A chance for you to get some additional insight to my true self. It’s mostly still true.


In 24 hours you may or may not discover that I...

am incredibly shy.

have a very hard time asserting myself and dealing with people in a professional setting.

love to dance, sing, and play the piano, though not very good at any of them.

am a child of the 80's.

enjoy sleeping naked, and have fond memories of talking on the phone with a guy in the middle of the night while in the buff (he being unaware of that fact).

have a difficult time expressing my feelings, especially those of hurt and anger.

come from a wonderful family of a loving mom and dad, three older brothers, an older sister, and four younger sisters.

have never broken a bone or pierced any part of my body.

have gained about five pounds in the last year, and am still underweight for my age/height/build.

battle anxiety and self-doubt on a daily basis.

am predictable as a six-sided dice.

express myself through poetry.

am writing a fantasy novel.

was born on Thanksgiving.

have a tendency to ramble.

have a quirky personality.

I am...

dandelion seeds floating in the breeze. a thorny rose. moonlight reflecting off water. simple elegance. dog and wolf. beauty and beast. dreamcatcher. creativity. memories. secrets. survivor. intimacy. harmony. chiaroscuro. cuddly teddy bear. scent of books. comfort. open arms. warm embrace. hot chocolate. Chi from Chobits. serenity. enchantress.

I am a Beautiful, Inspiring, Compassionate, Loving Woman.

I am a Daughter of my Heavenly Father, who loves me, and I love him.

I am a choice and special young woman, sent to this earth at this particular time for a purpose that only I can fulfill.

This blog, my writing, it’s all part of the journey to discover what that purpose is.

Raw truth, this is me.
