Freaking out? Check.
Again, thank you for the comments and feedback (and grammatical help!) you have given me. I’m still trying to figure out how to actually blog, so I appreciate the assistance. And I love the comments…keep ‘em coming!
I’ve been debating on how personal to get in this blog. Sure, telling you I take fish oils is personal, but come on, it’s not THAT personal. But I’m not sure if I’m ready to go Stephanie Klein personal and dish about my sex life. (I am a huge fan of her blog though, and do enjoy reading about her sex life)
How about if I began by telling you about my fears and anxieties about actually putting myself “out there” in the blogosphere. About how I basically had a panic attack after creating the blog last night, and that I had 3 hours of sleep and woke up feeling like someone was standing on my chest. I had never felt this way before. “A panic attack,” Matt told me. “No way, not me,” was my reply.
But the more I thought about it I realized that yes, I was panicking. Because for the first time, I am putting myself and my knowledge totally out there in full view. I’m finally taking a stand for myself. I’ve been hiding behind books, magazines, textbooks, workshops and classes for years. With this blog, at last, I have taken the first step to find my own voice and share what I’ve learned over the past few years.
So, let me just say for the record, I freaked the f*&k out. But I’m OK now. And I’m ready to share. To be honest about my life, my “food issues” that I have been working through, and things I may not know about. I realize life is meant to be messy, but I’ve never been much of a fan of that. I crave order, balance, schedules, lists, and things tied up in pretty ribbons. But not now. I’m giving you all I’ve got…and it might get a little messy. I do hope you stick around and stay with me and share my adventures and incredible passion for a happy, healthy, nutritious and delicious life.
