Not unlike my life the process of commencing this blog has been a journey-scary- intimidating yet necessary. Heck you can’t get there until you take that first step. So here I am – exposed with warts and all – giving you what I can and taking what you have to offer.
I have started in 3 cities 2 different states under 2 domain names not certain as to its focus or frankly what is it I wanted to share. I migrated from animals to humans trying to determine where my passion lay and where, if at all, I could have the most impact for both myself as well as others. To say the least I was just a tad confused.
For those who know me this is & was not surprising. You see the confusion comes from…. well where I am at in my life- having gone through many a transformational experience- some good- some not so good and most still experiencing.
I began with Postcards From a Semi-Mad Woman, a title lovingly provided by my husband, and appropriately received. You see my life , as I am certain yours as well, created dynamics that has provided me a personality & perspective with a healthy dose of quirks, lucidity, dysfunction and knowledge. So I am not completely mad nor irreparably sane- I am a confluence or better yet an amalgamation of the good, the bad & the ugly.
Then during one of my James Joycian, steam of consciousness head jerks I simultaneously came up with “It’s Now Girl” – a call to action- honestly more for myself than for you- because although the semi mad woman had a lot to offer – she was stuck in fear and could not free herself from those constraints. Its now Girl requires me to act- pushes me forward- as I hope it does for you as well.
One thing I was clear about is that I desired to generate and participate in a dialogue….. a conversation about ideas and solutions that is woman – centric, covering all matters and issues of concern to us, as woman, from our perspective. Yes, I will from time to time share with you my goings on, although this is not about me but us.
Without sounding condescending or intellectually superior I am meagerly confident that my life experience as intriguing, beautiful & painful as its’ been can provide insight to others.
Postcards From a Semi-Mad Woman & Its Now Girl are merged. This fits me to a tee and represents my inexperience in the world of blogging. I will look back on this and laugh I am sure. For now I am sweating bullets.
Questions? I’m ready to answer. Conversations I am ready to engage in- advice I can & desire to provide. It’s now girl – let’s go!
