I have always been a private person. At times, however, I have found myself to be overly trusting, subsequently divulging too much information that I later wished I had kept to myself. When Facebook was first created in the mid 2000s, I couldn’t wait to join and I jumped at the chance the minute I had an .edu address – this was back when you had to be enrolled in college to be on Facebook. Clearly a lot has changed since then and it was about three years ago that I decided to deactivate my account, never looking back.
When Twitter was created, I found it to be useless and even more overindulgent than Facebook. Needless to say, I don’t have a Twitter account although with my marketing degree, I can appreciate its range when it comes to business. I should never say never, but I am pretty confident that I will not become a tweeter.
When I started blogging, it was for the sake of wanting to write and at the same time selectively share snippets of my life. Yet, at times I find myself wanting to quit since it still makes me uncomfortable having my life out in the open. So here I am…I can say that I have reached a point at which I am willing to compromise. I think at times it is good to put ourselves somewhere slightly outside our comfort zone and in a position for growth.
I have really enjoyed writing and I will continue to write about my life because it is what I enjoy writing about. Nevertheless, I am going to continue to be selective in my choices and I hope that is ok with everyone reading.
After a few days of unpacking and getting settled in, the boys are away on a trip and I am safe and sound in my new apartment with my wonderful new roommate who is also a baseball wife. The furry babies are acclimating more beautifully than I could have ever imagined and I am happier than ever. It may sound crazy given that my whole life has done a 180, but I am at such peace with where I am right now and with my 25th birthday a few months away, I am right where I want to be.
In baseball the home is where the husband is and I never thought I would say that, but I feel it to be 100% true.
