Well hello there! I am so very pleased that not only did you find this blog but you are actually reading it! Woohoo!!!
As you may be able to tell, by the regularly used exclamation points in the first three sentences, that I am kind of excited. (Oh wow, I didn’t use an exclamation point. I wanted to but I restrained myself.) So, that is me in the picture above. I am pretty excited in this picture because I had just won $2000 worth of Young Living Essential Oils! I never win anything! Anyway, on with the introductory. My name is Kryket(pronounced like cricket) and yes that is my given name. Believe me I have heard all the jokes so just go ahead and get them out of your system. It’s ok. I give you permission. And, because I know you are wondering, no my parents weren’t hippies. However, when I was in college, I may have led some to believe that I was conceived at Woodstock! Actually, Woodstock was 3 years after I was born! Funny how a bunch of know-it-all college students didn’t know Woodstock took place in 1969. I had absolutely no idea what I was talking about. It was just a fun way to break the ice and have a good laugh. Today, I work in healthcare and it is still a great way to break the ice.
Anyway, this is my very first post of my very first blog. I am just a person who has lived a life for which I am grateful. It is not been an easy road. I have been through the good, the bad, and the ugly and I do not think that I am any different than anybody else. My life is blessed with a supportive family and great friends but something has been missing. They have all been there with me and for me through a long and troubled relationship, financial hardship, and terrible bouts of depression and anxiety. But, I needed something more. I needed an outlet. So, I figured if I needed an outlet there must be others who do too. I will share my life stories on this blog. You may find them boring or annoying or maybe, just maybe, you may see yourself in some of them. We all need to know that we are not alone. There are others. I’m an other, you’re an other, everybody’s an other. (Hey, doesn’t this sound like the old Dr. Pepper song?) So, stick around and share in my stories and know that this is just Simply Me!
Disclaimer: I am not an english major or writer in any way, shape, or form. My approach is to just talk. I am going talk to you just like a best friend. I may laugh or I may cry. I may be happy or I may be sad. I will just be me. That is all I know how to do. I am Simply Me!
