Writing, Worrying, Wondering: Three words, one person, one blog. Writing is a hobby and a pleasure; worrying less is something I’m working on; and wondering, being curious about what’s around the next bend, is particularly important to me.
I don’t know how much you really need or want to know about me to enjoy (or otherwise) the things I write, but here are some things I don’t mind sharing that might help you understand this blog’s meanderings:
Born in the UK, I now live in Germany with my husband. We moved here primarily because of work, but have gained more than just improved career paths. Travelling and living abroad as a means to living a full and well-balance life are something I enjoy writing about.
It was a desire to write that came before any decision about content, however. I started blogging as a way to motivate me to pursue my hobby. Writing is something you can do privately of course, but having a potential audience helps to raise my standards in terms of content, concentration, and (usually…) accuracy. So sometimes I write for the sake of it. Sometimes these musings or reflections are framed in fact, and other times they deal with ideas through the window of creative writing. Either way, it is hoped they go beyond fulfilling my selfish desire to improve my writing and are enjoyable and occasionally inspiring.
Living well, physically and mentally, is big on my priority list and writing about mental health, partially anxiety, feature a lot in these pages. Living the hedonistic lifestyle is not what I am going for, rather more openness and honesty about anxiety and how it affects lots of people along side a bit of personal experience and a desire to appreciate the little things.
This blog wanders through writing, worries and wonderings. It’ll go here, there, everywhere and mostly nowhere. It’ll sit in this corner of the web, hopefully to be enjoyed by those few souls who pop by.
There’s more about me, or maybe that’s already too much, but it’s all I’ve got for now. As I’ve said: I write because I like writing, I wonder because I want to know, and I worry because I can’t help it!
