To thine own self be true

This is just a quick reflection on my blog. Skip it if you don't like introspection!

I thought long and hard before I wrote that blog about the funeral yesterday. Originally, I intended this blog as a place to share fun things I'd bought/made/collected/seen. So I wondered if I should try to get back to just doing that. Perhaps I should keep my blog just for the happy stuff.

And then I realised that it just wouldn't be me. That's not to say that I want to dwell on the unhappy, but I feel I have to reflect my real life. I've spent lots of time over the years, especially in the workplace, having to edit myself, because I felt uncomfortable with the reactions of others to my 'weirdness' or 'artiness'. So it's important to me now to express myself. And I know that lots of you lovely bloggers out there understand this. Thank you for all your supportive comments, not just yesterday, but over the past few months. Very much appreciated.

That is the beauty of this little internet world we create, we get to kind of make it up as we go along and hopefully find people who get it! Hope everything perks up!

I thought it was a lovely post about Joe. It certainly made me think..... and put everyday trials into perspective.
Carry on blogging!!!
