Here I Am

Sometimes, I feel as though I've disappeared.

Mostly, though, I've just been busy.

And I've definitely outgrown that old blog, with the title that drips with self-doubt.

That's one reason I haven't written in a very long time. It's hard to write under a title that is so self-deprecating. A title that reminds me of every insecurity I have. A title that limits me to motherhood and my self-consciousness therein.

I am a mother, yes.  And a damn good one.

I am also a woman. A wife. An actress. An old soul trying to find my place and my purpose in this big, wide world. I am filled with anxiety, but I trust in the goodness of people. I am an introvert, but I love the company of people. I am cautious by nature, but I crave adventure. I want to take root, and I want to fly away, all at the same time.

I am a million paradoxes, and none of them can be captured in so confining a title as that old blog.

So, here I am, in this new place, with plenty of room to stretch out and write about whatever comes to mind. I'm sure the children will feature heavily - they are, of course, a major part of my life. But they are not the entirety of my life, and so they will not be the only thing I write about.

Welcome to my Great Wide Somewhere. Let's explore it together.
