Packin’ Up and Peacin’ Out

January 23, 2010

I know, I know…it’s been NOVEMBER since I blogged and that really just isn’t acceptable.  When I moved to this site, moving on from my old blog, I was looking for a fresh start and got that, for awhile.  Now, I am yearning for all those old topics…DBT, mental health, always improving, always changing.  I have therefore decided to refresh that old site.  You can catch me now at:

I do hope you will come visit!  🙂


The Gratefulness in Moving Forward

August 20, 2009

When I started this blog, I was looking for a fresh start.  Something to really get me into blogging again, that could be positive.  In RosieSmrtiePants, it seemed like all I had been doing lately was complaining, moaning, wallowing.  Oh, and not blogging.  I mean, A LOT of not blogging.  I couldn’t stand to face that blog most days, unless I felt really bad.

Queen of Biscuits asked me tonight if I was going to “abandon” my old blog.  GASP!  Abandon?  I guess I hadn’t looked at it that way before.  To me, I had grown out of the old blog and am starting something new.  I honestly believe I can bring that creative spirit back to me without having it revolve around every single negative thought in my head.  A blog with much less wallowing.  Lord, how I hate wallowing in my own misery…having done so much of it, very well documented actually, in my previous blog. 

Could I have done all of this on the same blog?  Perhaps.  That wasn’t the path I chose to take, and really, would choose again in a heartbeat.  I don’t like the term “abandonment” or the thought that I am “abandoning” anything.  I’m sure that’s not where QoB’s head was at, but it really sparked some angst.  What if this new blog is just some manic attempt at “normalcy” or a misled yearning for something different that I can’t have, that I don’t deserve, even?

But here’s the thing.  It’s not any of that.  It’s me, same old RosieSmrtie, writing a new chapter, searching for my creativity again, for my outlet.  And the only person who really needs to take that to heart, is me.
