I think I am starting to feel like a blogger…

Wow, I don’t even know where to begin… I have been considering starting a blog for a really long time for a number of reasons. First, I have always loved to write and I figured that this would be a good way for me to immerse myself in this hobby again. Second, I think blogging is pretty cool and I really enjoy reading the blogs of others regularly. Lastly, I have a funny feeling that this will be extremely therapeutic for me as I constantly have a million thoughts racing around in my head and really need a productive way to get them all out.
I don’t really want to spend this entire first blog introducing myself because I am sure there will be many opportunities within the context of future entries for me to tell you more and more about who I am. Basically, you only need to know a few things about me as we begin this journey of me writing down my thoughts and you reading them. You should probably know that my children are the most important people in my life. I have two sons, Benjamin, age 6 and Ethan, age 3. Never in a million years did I think that I would ever be emotionally capable of loving another human being as much as I love them. As a matter of fact, my husband and I have a running joke that if terrorists ever made me choose between throwing him or my sons off of a bridge that he would definitely be going over.
My career is very important to me. I have been a Middle School teacher in an inner city school for almost ten years and I have learned as much from my students as I hope they learned from me. There was never any doubt that I would pursue this career path because it had been a goal of mine since my childhood. It is important that I note, however, that, although I value my career, my role as a mother takes precedent over it any day of the week. I am definitely not one of those career women who had kids to use as accessories.
There is life despite and in spite of adversity. Anybody who tells you that their life is perfect is lying. Nobody has a cookie cutter life and too many people are in the business of laying down on the road and just giving up when the “bleep” hits the fan. Unfortunately, life was designed in such a way that we are not afforded that luxury. As they say, “Time stands still for no man.” It is definitely true that life goes on even when bad things happen. As individuals, we can use this time to give in or to suck it up and keep it moving. I, personally, am a fan of the latter. Trust me, life definitely has a warped way of letting us know how strong we really are…
