I began this blog back in 2014 and have reached 500 posts! My initial purpose for blogging was to tackle the issues/ thoughts/feelings I was having about being a 50-year old woman facing divorce, dating, sex, more sex, dating, sex, relationships and sex.
However, as I continued to write, this blog became the place I sat down to unpack my feelings, concerns, fears, and happiness about my life. I find it hard to believe that I am six years away from my divorce. It seems so long ago and yet so recent all at once.
On this blog, I have dug around and unpacked my anxiety about work and trying to earn a decent living. That has been my biggest topic of late.
I have also looked at relationships with my kids, my dad and the Hunter. I might not have been forthcoming about the Hunter recently because the man keeps sneaking on and reading my blog and then getting upset. Geez, what a vicious cycle. Plus there simply isn’t much to say about us right now. We simply…are…
My Dear Readers, you who give me a few minutes of your precious time, have provided wise words of advice, encouragement and general comments. Thank you.
I have no idea what the next 500 posts will be about or if I will even make it to 1,000 posts. What I do know is that this blog has been far cheaper than a therapist. It has been an invaluable tool and haven for me. To be able to reflect and stew is paramount to my mental health. To be able to go back and read my previous posts gives me clarity on what I was thinking at that time.
I was going to go back and curate a “Best of” list, but guess what — I am too lazy to do that right now. I just wanted to get this post up to celebrate my amazing accomplishment. Plus to be honest, my first year or so of blogging is really XXX rated – LOL. Not that I am a prude, but I am gainfully employed, so I will prudently keep them locked.
Thank you for reading.
