Well, after a couple of years of thinking about it, here I am. I decided I have to start someplace. And, that place is here.
My name is GG Beez and I’ve wanted to blog for a long time and just never got started for one reason or another. Would people even be interested in what I have to say? Do I really want to put myself out there like that? What’s the point? How do I even set up a blog?
So the other day, one of my best friends came over to show me how to get started. We’ll call her, Truck-a-Mama. Okay, she just bought a giant Dodge Ram truck she’s wanted for years after driving a PT Cruiser. I don’t understand. But that’s another story. She showed me how to get off and running – or rather typing. You know what I mean.
About me? Well, I’m in the ‘sandwich-generation’ so I’ll let you guess my age. I don’t have children, but I do have tons — no, really, all of them together can make a ton or two — of nieces and nephews. Many of whom I’ve helped raise in the village that is my most beautiful family. I have elderly parents — my mom has multiple sclerosis and is in a wheelchair. I work full time and in my spare time — whatever that is — my husband and I get to hang out with one another for a few minutes. Oh, by the way, he’s super busy with his job and volunteer responsibilities. We’ll call him My Guy. He’s been the love of my life. My rock. My strength and so much more. I like to tell him he’s the coolest man I know. We’ve been together through the highs and lows of marriage. And, I can honestly say, my love is deeper for him than I could have ever imagined. Not that kind of fantasy love where you are walking on the beach and holding hands as the sun sets. I mean the kind of love that shows up when the moon goes down and the bills are coming in. He kept me going through breast cancer treatment… But in the interest of keeping this initial post not too long, I’ll save that story for another day.
I love eating organic and healthy food. Right now I’m freeing myself from refined sugar and trying not to hurt anyone in my near vicinity in the process. More on that some other time. I’m into alternative means of health care as much as possible. My trust of Western medicine has waned through different experiences. Through much research, I have come to the conclusion through the reasonableness of my own mind that it is the best option for me and mine.
So that’s a little bit about me. I’m looking forward to sharing my journey. It’s me opening myself up to new experiences. Praise and criticism. Acceptance and rejection. How much love you receive is conversely affected by how much love you give. Life is about the journey and the impact you make on those along your path. I’m widening mine in hopes to be a positive impact on others. What are you doing to be the you that you want to see? Thanks for reading.
