Trying something different

I have never really been one to write down what is going on in my head. I dabbled a little in my teenage years with diaries, tried again for a little while when I became a Christian in my early twenties, as 'journal writing' seemed to be the thing to do. My husband on the other hand has always kept a detailed diary of his thoughts, doings, and dreams, though think it has lapsed a little since we had our two children, a young lad of 9 and a young lady of 7.

A conversation with a friend recently was the final prod to get me blogging. We were talking with her husband when it transpired that as we have both just turned 40 and have children of similar ages we were also both struggling with the question of Who am I?

Somewhere in the last 10 years I seem to have lost all sense of who I am, what I like, what I want and where I want to go. So I have decided to ramble through my head and explore the different roles that I have (or have had) and try and see if I can find myself.


  1. Dear Jane, I think you need to discard all the roles that you have built up for youself over the years or that others have built up for you. Once you can separate yourself from these egoic roles and thought processes then you will be able to sense the true'I am', the inner being or presence that is truly you, the god who resides in us all.

  2. Not feeling that I want to discard them just untangle myself from them.........

  3. So excited to find you have joined the blogging world! I have found the process of blogging has helped me to notice the details of my life and to reflect on them. I hope you find that it helps you and that 2009 brings growth and joy.
