Who Am I? If You've Ever Wondered, Here's Your Chance To Learn A Little More
Lately I've become rather curious about all of my fabulous friends out there who take the time to be part of JCD. I wonder exactly who you are, where you are, and what you think about our great big world. And the thought came to me that if I'm wondering about all my JCD friends, maybe you too wonder who I am. Sometimes I run into people in town who stop and ask, "Are you the Jasey with Crazy Daisy?" I am. I don't know why I am so shy about that, I guess even though I don't want it to matter and I know that it shouldn't, I'm a little bit afraid of what people might think about my blogging adventure. That it's silly or over ambitious or that no one will like it, visit, or listen. But I'm getting over those fears because even though they are real, I am not going to let them define me. I will not set that example for my kids. I want more for them and should for myself too. So I hope you don't mind if I take a few minutes to come out of the dark and tell you a little more about me. I am thirty something. I live in Wyoming with the most amazing husband in the entire world and our three kiddos, who I happen to think are some of the coolest people out there. I have my master's in elementary education but I choose to stay home with my children for the time being. I am a daughter, sister, and a friend. My family is everything to me -and not everyone I consider my family is actually by blood. I dabble in a little bit of everything, baking, cooking, sewing, quilting, crafting, and other DIY home projects. Letting others know they are appreciated is important to me and I love thinking of fun ways to let them know how special they are. I've always wanted to write a book that actually gets published. I believe in miracles and have three of my own. I work hard to find a balance between time spent with my family, blogging, and maintaining our crazy activity schedule and our home (dishes, laundry, floors, you know how that goes). My family is at the top of my priorities and will always win this battle, so when I'm gone from the blogosphere, you know where I am, although I shouldn't be gone for too long. I can be rather outgoing, but often keep my thoughts to myself. I don't like confrontation, but sometimes the boat needs to be rocked in order to make make things right. I'm working on speaking up. I've been told on more than one occasion that I have a way of putting others in their place without them ever realizing that it happened. I like to think this means that I'm tactful, or empathetic, or more importantly that even when I disagree with someone I try to leave their dignity intact. I want to make a difference, to leave my stamp on this world, to make it a better place for my children to live in. And so here I am. I love sharing my recipes, printables, and projects with you, but on occasion, if you don't mind, maybe I'll dig a little deeper and share my thoughts too. There's so much that I want to say. We can learn together and maybe just maybe, help transform this world of ours into the world it has the potential to be.
If you read this, it means I jumped.
I clicked publish. I reached out of my comfort zone
took a chance and dug deep. I put a face to JCD. My face.
I didn't quietly sneak it onto my about page.
I put it front and center for all to see.
I tell my kids to be true to themselves
and not to be afraid of who they are.
I've got to set that example.
What is it that gives you the courage
to face your fears and do things that are hard for you?
