FOR THE LOVE OF JUNK

SOME WOMEN DREAM OF BEAUTIFUL HOMES AND PERFECTION. SOME DREAM OF THE DIAMOND IN THE ROUGH, OUTCAST ITEMS, THE TATTERED, THE CRAZED, THE RUSTED AND SOMETIMES DISCARDED TREASURES. IM A MEMBER OF THE SECOND GROUP. I'M A JUNKER FOR LIFE!

Decisions

I like this guy, good looking guy, a Texan guy. I don't get to see him anymore, he used to pasture with his herd across the street from  our house in Killeen. I missed that view. This was right in the city, can you believe it? Now that we live out in the country I don't get to see faces like his. We do get a lot of bird watching. My husband have placed feeders all over the place and we have a water fountain right outside the front window. I might have ten birds feeding and bathing at the same time...until Mr. Bluejay the bully arrives. Then everybody runs, I mean , fly for their lives. I have many cardinals, finches and there is a roadrunner that comes and bathes there too. He risides somewhere in the back with another 4 roadrunners.  In the back we have hummingbird feeders which we filled with nectar, not that we needed since the back lot have a lot of trumpet vine all over the place. They can put quite a show for us.
When I decided to named this post decisions is because I already made a big one in regards to blogging. For a while I have been contemplating stop blogging all together. Time is so limited sometimes and the main reason, the real reason was that I was not feeling as fulfilled doing it.  Then I started to meditate in the reasons why I blog. Not the reasons why other people blog, they are all valid prerogatives, but why do I...
   It struck me that even though I enjoy looking at beautiful things, it can get old, when that is all it is, so it became an empty show and tell for me. I realized none of you know me or that I have ever share who I really am, deep inside, See, pretty things are pretty, but they are only things. Blogging started to loose its appeal with me because I have never really shared what is important to me. I have realized that blogging is an escape for many and as such people want to keep their blogs an always happy, beautiful to look, social media UTOPIA...and that my friends is your decision and your prerogative. My decision in regards of my blogging stands as follow: I will talk about what is important to me, even if is taboo, not so politically correct, stepping in your toes kind of deal. I'm not planning in becoming a cyberbully, never! but I intent to put it all out there.
     Just so you now know, I'm very opinionated, almost fanatical about what I believe. In my world is called conviction and I believed it to be a good thing. I'm also VERY PASSIONATE, about whatever I'm doing. It is a very type A personality and I know it have cost me friendships. I believe you either love me or hate me. So.... from now on I'm going to talked about everything. Reality shows, my FAITH and MY SAVIOR, the government, of course junk, my friends and family,my business, my passions, my trials and tribulations and maybe somedays a lot about nothing because that is life too. I also plan in sharing people, places and things that make this world a better place. There is so many forms of beauty  and I'm planning in exploring it all. So... I hope you all come with me in the journey, it is my blog and I need it to become something else for me. Blessings to you all,  whoever you are, Marta.

I truly believe your blog should fulfill you and that is what is important. I have found a little more of 'me' creeping into my blog and I'm content with it for now. I'm proud of you for following you convictions.
hugs, Linda

You go girl!! I think that is awesome!

Amen to that! Amen! I think many of us bloggers have thought these same thoughts, but were nervous about actually doing it. In this day and age, we cannot be ourselves, talk about or share our world, views, faith, etc. for fear it will offend others. I will be here to read what you have to say! Thanks for being honest and stepping out there!

Most blogs seem to appear fake to me...life deals us good & bad cards. Fake meaning that all is perfect in their world; they create each day as if their life has no responsibilities; what about a FT job; kids; husband or life partner...

Proud of you for being so honest.
Hus, Sharon
