It's an interesting idea, right? The word itself sounds so barren-- desolate even. It's hard to imagine how it contributes anything positive to our lives. For 14 years I have loved and cherished my quirky yellow lab, Sandy. We knew she was different from the moment we got her. She was a dog that never barked, more specifically a water dog that loathed water, and a singer (wonder where she got that from). Every time I would play the piano, she would start making this howling-like noise in her throat, but of course it wasn't any ordinary howling noise. She would be on pitch; she literally would sing in whatever key I was playing in at the time. She lived such a long, wonderful life, and I know it's going to be hard for me because there aren't many memories of mine that she isn't apart of. Growing up as an only child was definitely different, even a bit lonely at times. Having Sandy there made it okay though, she had this personality that would have made you think she was human. The somber silence that has come over my house is going to take some getting used to. I love you so much, sweet girl. I'm glad that you're not suffering anymore. You have single-handedly changed my life and whatever comes at the end of this lifetime, wherever you are, I hope you find peace.
Why hello there! Welcome to my blog that was created out of pure impulse! I was sitting watching an over-dramatic lifetime movie the other night when suddenly like an epiphany, I blurted out "I should blog." Yup. That's what my life has come to. My life really has taken some interesting turns lately, and the bold, beautiful phoenix that has been slowly rising from the ashes of who it was, is now soaring. I'm discovering things, thoughts, and ideas in life that my mind and my soul have been craving for so long so I thought, what's a better way to celebrate than talking to myself on the internet, right? I really want to use this as a way of reminding myself what great experiences my future has in store for me, and I would like to remain focused on the goodness and light in my life. Do I expect anyone to read this? Nope. Does that bother me? Nah. I'm excited to see where this little project takes me and hopefully all -7 of you guys reading this are excited as well!
I'm not sure how to end a blog post...
