An Optimists Tale

I’m a thinker, always have been. I’m still trying to find a way to shut off or at the very least quiet my brain. So far, no luck, but I’m not giving up! I’ve also been told too many times that I talk too much. So, I’ve made a decision. I have decided to blog many of my thoughts, rather than burden them on those around me. I find it works out better for me. Besides, if I just put these thoughts & feelings out into the universe, it frees me somehow, even in the smallest of ways.

This blog gives me the freedom to vent my thoughts, feelings & frustrations in & about life without the worry that comes along with talking to someone about these thing. Besides, from what I’ve noticed anyway, people really don’t want to know when things are going badly, it only makes them feel uncomfortable & a bit helpless.

I have decided, both for fun & because I’m a huge Rolling Stones fan, to title some of my blogs with a Stones song I feel expresses or fits the content of each entry. Just a way to have a little fun & incorporate the music I love & am shaped by into the stories I tell. Some of my posts, however, will not be led with Rolling Stones lyric titles.

My life is a journey, sometimes it’s a real trip, but I like to think that maybe someone, somewhere, someday will read this & relate to it in some way & that would mean that I touched someone else’s life. If I am able to do that, then all the garbage & the pain will have been worth it!

Lastly, to steal a quote from a woman I have a great amount of respect for, Carrie Fisher, who said in her book & one woman show  Wishful Drinking “If my life wasn’t funny it would just be true & that’s unacceptable!”
