I’m back :) with a new name.
so here’s the deal..
I absolutely positively love
the idea of writing.
entertaining people with quippy words and unique analogies.. but mixed with the feelings of inadequacy, and discontent-ness after reading others peoples blogs, I find that I quit writing a blog or a poem just about as soon as I begin.
I’m learning that it has a lot to do with my ego… If I didn’t care about what people thought (in many respects of life, not just blogging), i think I would follow through with more, or not be so negative in life. *sigh* ego isn’t an easy thing to let go of.
That’s where I got my blog name from.. (well, it’s actually a double meaning.)
The first meaning comes about this way: This next year, my goal is to get away from ego. To not worry about “I-ness” in my life… to be more self giving, self sacrificing.. in my relationships, in my teaching, in my marriage. I don’t want to do things for self gratification. Of course, this blog will be about a lot of thing, including accomplishments.. but Ive realized that there’s a time and a place for speaking of accomplishment.
the second meaning is a little more silly… my name is Alexandra. To the lady at the bank, or the hair dresser, or the post office, or the doctors office, or anybody that I introduce myself to… its alexandra..not alexandria…alexand-r-a..Do you hear an I in there?!? ALEXANDRA .. WITH NO FREAKING ‘I’!!!
