Who am I?

Don't we ask ourselves that question quite often?

Who am I?

Sometimes I feel like I get lost in the "Mommy Summers" blog theme, (which if you're wondering or confused like I'd probably be, is strictly Mommy Blog material). I sometimes wonder how I forget I'm a woman, and not just a mom. I have talents and hobbies. Things excite me, and not just seeing a great deal on some cute clothes for my baby. (Err, toddler.) 

Seeing as I can no longer fall back to sleep after 6:30 am, and A doesn't wake up until closer to 9/9:30 I want to say I'll be back at blogging more. I really think I need a plan though. How do you go about figuring out a blogging plan?  Sometimes (okay- most times), at night or just going through my day I'll start writing a post in my head, it'll sound amazing, of course I have nothing to write/type on, just my phone but really, how well does that ever go? What do you do at those times?

Did you know I made some "Goals for 2013"? I bet you didn't. I'm still deciding if they are realistic or not. But, hey if they don't happen in 2013, I have plenty of time after to accomplish them right? I want to be a better writer. I dreamed of writing books and sharing my story (not that it's anything really special or unique), when I was younger. I had journals, never wrote regularly though, just enough to help me remember. How do I get there? 

I want to be more "real". I share the good things, and sometimes the bad, but how can I give you a glimpse into my life without it being bland or to personal?

I want to be myself. Did you know that I can gross out even my brothers with the things I say? Seriously, my husband can't believe I have a mouth like the one I do. I'm never inappropriate at the wrong times, I know who I can be really myself around, but I also what to be more myself more often (not that being gross is the only thing that makes me, well me, I just know it's something you don't know about me and don't worry I plan on keeping my blog clean). I tend to be shy, hang back. So I want to tweet at that awesome blogger, make friends with them, but me?- eh I'm just an average blogger, heck the streak I had going disappeared rather quickly. Why would they want to talk to me? 

How do you break away from your "blog theme"? How do you become the better you?

I know exactly what you mean! Especially since I started out blogging anonymously (because I was scared to tell anyone for fear that they'd laugh), but now my friends and family read my blog so I feel like I have to edit myself or stick to "mommy" topics and updates with the children. I don't know how to find that balance...which is probably what actually keeps me from writing more.

If you figure it out, let me know! :)

Good questions! I'm actually experiencing a sort of where am I going blog crisis right now. But, I am looking forward to learning more about you as a woman.
