JusT SpInnIng PlaTes... (originally posted 9/2/14)...

I am starting on a new path of the blogging trek. The Domain. Oooohhhh...sounds important, right? As I said before...I am not an expert on anything. Some of the topics that I am passionate about are 9/11/01; Domestic Violence Awareness; Childhood Trauma (including Childhood Sexual Abuse). On a lighter note, I just want to kind of put out some inspiration, sometimes ala "Erma Bombeck". I do have a different view on life, sometimes; and have been told I have a "rare heart". I do not necessarily want this to just be a dumping ground; but I do want to share what's in my heart & maybe start some dialogue, or make someone think about something in a way they haven't before. I, too, want to be open in my thinking...but just know...what I share is just MY OPINION. I don't really want people to go blasting my site because I feel differently about something they feel passionately. Let's keep this on a respectful level, ok? The basics I try to live by are: Honesty, Integrity, Responsibility, Commitment, & Truth. Pretty basic, right. Right now, I am just trying to get used to writing every day. I did before, until the bottom kind of fell out of my world for a bit. I am back on track now...but I do ask that you bear with me. I do have a full-time job that takes my energy, sometimes. I do commit to try and write every day. Just beware, I have a giant "Rolodex" in my brain...sometimes I fall prey to whatever comes around on it, subject-wise. The title, "JusT SpInnIng PlaTes..." is a metaphor I've used to explain the living of life to my counselor for years. You just keep trying to keep one plate spinning, & 3 start stopping. You get those 3 going again, & the first one, plus 5 others start stopping. It's just what we do...we persevere...if a plate stops spinning, we get another plate, put it on the stick & start it spinning again. Sometimes, it just gets messy!!! You've got broken pieces of plates lying all around you, & all you wanna do is sit down and cry!!! It's ok, as long as you then get up, grab some more plates, & start them spinning again. Even if you're down to one plate, it's still ONE PLATE!!! Have hope...all is NOT lost!!! Have a good day & be safe...
