Rambling Through The Woods of My Mind

Care to stroll with me?

24 January 1986

"She was who she once was, but not as I had known her."

People change and I'm no exception. If you knew me from 5 years ago, 10 years ago, I'm only a small portion of that girl. I grew up. I've still got some growing up to do, but I'm finally happy with who I am. I'm finding my center and who I am without worrying about everyone else and what they think of me. I'm just me.

I'm a 29 year old mom of 3 boys. I'm married to a wonderful man whom I love very much, Dann, and though our road has been a rocky one, we're taking the journey together.

My boys are Gavin, Griffin, and Soren- They're my life and I love them beyond words. I may be many things, but I'm a mom first and foremost. I always will be. My oldest, Gavin, has High Functioning Autism (HFA), unofficially Aspergers. I write a lot about the struggle with being a parent to an autistic child. I often feel ill-equipped. But, with the help of many people, I'm finally getting to be the mom that he needs. Griffin is super smart and has skipped ahead a grade. He seems older than he is and it's hard to remember that. Soren is an active toddler who gets into anything and everything. He definitely keeps me on my toes. My parenting style is attachment parenting. Baby-wearing, breastfeeding, co-sleeping, hippy mom. :)

What to expect from this journal:
I talk about stresses of being a parent, a wife, and a woman. I talk about marriage. I talk about my religious journey. Currently I'm discovering what exactly I do believe. I'm working out all the kinks, struggling to find what truly speaks to my heart. I talk about my struggles overcoming Borderline Personality Disorder and living with Type 2 Bipolar. I talk about body image. I talk about hopes and dreams. I talk about my freelance film business. I talk about my ups and my downs. I talk and I don't care if I offend, I just talk because that's what a journal is for. I'm abrasive and blunt, but compassionate and loving. I am a contradiction, but aren't we all?

Sometimes life is messy, but that's what life's meant to be. Someday I'll find a way to clean and organize it. For right now, I'm just trying to get through it. I'm rambling through the woods of my mind... care to stroll with me?
