and so I begin

I haven’t a clue what to write for my first post.

So I won’t. Write, that is.

Testing….1, 2, 3….are you there, Cyd? It’s me, Cyd.

Edited 11/12/15 to include my announcement of this site. Yikes! I’m doin’ it!

I am about to embark upon one of the scariest things I’ve ever done. So many of you have been kind enough to comment that you like my writing style. I’ve never had much confidence in the content of my writings. Like, who cares about what I have to say? Half the time, I don’t. LOL! And Lord knows (and my friend, Rob Buck, knows) my grammar and punctuation leave a great deal to be ridiculed and edited. But here I go, all the same.

Anyone who knows me knows that I have an opinion on just about everything. Strong opinions. Lately, I have been self reflecting and attempting to become more mindful in my life about everything from eating to sleeping to walking and breathing. I don’t know how to maneuver my life without putting it all down in writing. It has always been a cathartic process for me. I’ve always kept a journal for myself since my 8th grade teacher, Bonnie Lauterbach, gave me my first journal. Now, with a great deal of trepidation and hope, I am opening up the pages of my journals to you. Basically, I’m throwing a party and all y’all are invited smile emoticon

I am new to this blogging thing. I am still navigating through the techno-babble part of putting a blog post up online and building a website and connecting with social media and…and…and…. Ugh. Can’t I just write and have it magically appear? Guess not.

Paul just mentioned that even my announcement of my blog is a blog post in and of itself. He believes I’ve chosen an appropriate hobby. He rocks. He’s always so supportive. But, hmmmm. Maybe he’s right. Maybe I should have made THIS post my first post.

How did I choose the name for my blog? I haven’t a clue except that the idea of a zen-full life appeals to me. It creates visions of ocean waves and peace and sun and love. This is the life I want. It’s the life we all want, isn’t it? So enjoy my first official blog post and let me know what you think. Speak your peace. I’m a big girl and I can take it. Plus, it’ll give me more fodder for the next post…
