A blog to house my musings, curiosities, and fascinations.
When it came time for me to start blogging again, I found myself paralyzed. I was trapped by the belief that my blog had to be unique, that it had to have a defined theme, and that it had to be appealing to everyone. After some time scouring Google for advice, I realized that if all I did was worry and plan, I would spend forever worrying and planning and never get to writing.|
From that realization, I've decided to display my blog writing guidelines here for everyone to see, but especially for me to see when I come here to write.
Blog about what is appealing to YOU.
Don't worry about anyone else.
Allow yourself to WRITE!
Don't restrain yourself to one voice, one writing style, one genre, or one topic area.
Throw out the fear of maintaining a consistent theme.
Blog about your passions, interests, fancies, inspirations, opinions, musings, curiosities, ramblings, and loves.
Explore, experiment, and have fun!
So, this is my solution. A blog about anything and everything that sparks my interest.
The title is inspired by the quote at the bottom of this introduction. Everything you love, even for a short time, becomes part of you. Our experiences and perception of the world is colored by those things we love and have loved, whether those things are or not. This blog will be a place to house those passions and curiosities. Please enjoy!
"It came to me that every time I lose a dog they take a piece of my heart with them, and every new dog who comes into my life gifts me with a piece of their heart. If I live long enough, all the components of my heart will be dog, and I will become as generous and loving as they are."

|Thankfully, February has been a lot better on all fronts than the previous few months. I started going to therapy and have an interview for a new job coming up that I'm very excited about. Things are settling down and I have things to look forward to, including a new relationship, which is very exciting.
Here's what I wrote in February:
