I have struggled with this blog for a long time now. I always thought it was my fault, that I was being lazy, that I wasn't trying hard enough, or that my depression was making impossible for me to write. But I finally realized what the real reason is: because I am a mom I started out thinking all I could I write about was parenting. I imposed that limitation on myself from the get-go. I painted myself into the proverbial corner of mommy blogging. I don't mean to sound derisive at all. I consider being a mom one of the greatest gifts and challenges of my life, but I have a full time job and have thoughts on many other aspects of life like politics, daily life in an urban setting, living in a so-called progressive city, obesity and overeating, even religion.
Here's to new beginnings!
