Finding My Voice

In general on September 22, 2012 at 9:00 pm

It is reassuring to learn, after reading through an issue of Artful Blogger, that it took time and patience for others to find their voices.  Blogging began as an outlet for them to share accomplishments, creativity, information, and ended up opening doors to them that they had not know existed.  Does this sound dramatic?  Yes, but it is true.  I can see it already for myself.  The more I write the more I want to write.  The more creative projects I undertake the more I want to do and the more I want to share.  Because let’s face it.  If I can do these things, anyone can! But I am also finding a new sense of pride that I carry around and new people, projects, perspectives on life to delve into.  I imagine it will take some time yet to find my voice.  In the meantime I am crossing my fingers that my readers everything will find something they can connect to, something that they may learn from or something that makes them laugh.  I may write about our adventures with following the Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD), my son’s intolerance to gluten/oats and dairy, parenting successes or mishaps, or even my sewing adventures.  But the truth is that in some ways it all blurs together at some point.  After all, I am a mom.  When I cook it is for my family.  When I sew it is for my family (mostly).  And when I parent, will, obviously that is for my family.  It is difficult to take the mom out of any of those categories.  So a piece of “mom” will always float amongst my writings.  Maybe in the end, that is my voice.  We’ll soon see.
