After my last post about new starts, I wasn’t sure how to follow it up, other than jumping right back into things .. and somehow that just felt wrong. Then I caught up on some RSS reading and came across Katlyn’s post over at The Dreamy Meadow and thought it was such a great idea that I decided to take on her challenge and do the same.
Let’s pretend that we’ve never been in contact before.
You’ve never visited this blog before.
You’ve never heard my name before.
So who am I?
What is this blog all about & why do I want to have my voice be heard?
The questions above are good .. and they are similar to many I have been asking myself a lot lately. Why am I like I am; why do I do the things I do; what has made me who I am today and so on. The answers are coming slowly and I am starting to learn a lot about myself, which is proving interesting. I have worked out that I am better at keeping on top of things if they are in a good place to begin with, that I am more organised when other people are either involved or will see the thing I have organised and that, despite laughing it off and/or denying it, I actually don’t care about myself enough (at all?).
To give you the brass tacks as it were, I am a 33-year-old single woman living and working in Hampshire, UK. I enjoy doing things for other people, whether that be in a charitable way (I am a member of Lions Club International) or the more personal thing of making someone smile through something I have done for them. I hate the idea of someone not liking me, even if it is someone I have muted feelings for. I don’t know why it bothers me so much, but it does .. so if you are reading this and don’t like me, please don’t ever tell me!
I love the opportunity life presents to us, hence my list of 1001 things to try to do whilst I am around .. the excitement I get when adding new items or planning to cross things off is childlike! If I could win the lottery, my idea of bliss would be to go off travelling round the world seeing and experiencing as much as humanly possible .. preferably with a close friend or loved one.
I want to be more organised, tidier, thriftier, more social and definitely more active .. much more active. I want to be braver, more assertive and I really want to be a great friend, daughter, sister, niece, granddaughter and one day, I really hope to be a great wife.
My name is Emma Louise Donovan and my life changes now.
I challenge you to introduce yourself. Tell me who you are now and who you want to be.
