I Know I’ve Been MIA

I really don’t know why but I haven’t wanted to blog the last few weeks.  I am realizing that my blog is no longer about an affair or a broken heart. It’s taking me a little while to figure out what my new focus will be. I guess it will continue to be about me, my marriage, my life and things that interest me.  It just seems a little boring to be perfectly honest lol.

Then what do I do? Take down all the posts about the affair? Start posting pictures of myself? These are the questions that have been going through my mind. So while I mull all this over and get through the end of the school year, I guess I’m going to need a little time to figure out what’s next.

I do know that I want to continue blogging, I just don’t want to feel so guilty every time I need a break.  Does that make any sense?  I feel like I have abandoned my friends and fellow bloggers and in a way I guess I have.  For that I deeply apologize.  I hope you all know how much you mean to me.

I’m just going through a transition period in life and figuring out what’s next for me is something I am still working on.  Am I happy?  Most days absolutely, but not all and that’s okay.

I wanted to let you all know what I was thinking and to be assured that this is just a temporary break.  And if anyone has any suggestions, I am more than open to them.  Feel free to suggest away.  I hope you are all doing well and that you are going where the love is.

Love, Emma

Thanks to Trish – LIEBSTER AWARD (My 1st blogging award ever!!!)





Thank you to the amazing Trish at http://10yearsasinglemom.wordpress.com/ who has an amazing heart, a nurturing spirit, and is also a really talented writer!  Thank you for your support.  It means the world to me!!!

  1. Who is your favorite person? My Mom (she passed away a few years ago).  She taught me to always be honest, courageous and true to myself.  She radiated joy and love.  Picture Carol Brady, June Cleaver, the Dalai Lama and Dr Ruth all wrapped in a tiny little 5 ft package.
  2. If you could live anywhere in the world where would it be? Anyplace tropical where there is clear blue water and fruity drinks with umbrellas.
  3. What was your last random act of kindness? I just helped a coworker carry a bunch of boxes to her office.
  4. What’s a recent book you read that you liked and why? The Ultimate Happiness Prescription: 7 Keys to Joy and Enlightenment by Deepak Chopra.  It gives you simple exercises like meditation (I’m a beginner) to bring out your true self and let go of your ego.  It made me feel lighter and happier just reading it.
  5. What’s your favorite meal? Chicken cutlets, my Mom’s mashed potatoes and salad with homemade dressing.
  6. Does the current place you live in feel like home or is there someplace else that feels that way for you?  My house now feels like home and is comfortable.  But for me, home will always be my parent’s house where I lived for 27 years.
  7. Where do you find your inspiration?  I find a lot of inspiration in my relationships with family, friends, etc.  I also get inspired by reading, looking at photographs, art, movies and television.
  8. What makes you laugh?  Gosh, almost everything. Laughter is much more important than people know.  I love British comedies like Keeping Up Appearances and really silly comedies like the Hangover.
  9. Would you ever skydive? Definitely
  10. What is your favorite holiday?  It used to be Christmas before my Mom died.  Now I love the Fourth of July.

Crazy Bitter People

Okay so I’ve only been blogging for about 5 months and am still figuring this whole thing out.

I have met so many supportive, kind and truly loving people. You have helped me through an extremely painful time in my life. You have allowed me to see life in a new way and made me laugh through my tears. Words cannot express the gratitude I feel to so many fellow bloggers.

And I guess I should’ve been better prepared for the bitter haters given some of the subject matter of my blog.

But what kind of person follows blogs with the sole purpose of making nasty, hateful comments while keeping theirs private? A bitter, angry, pathetic coward.

You do not know me, my story or my heart. I am NOT to blame for your pain or lot in life. So don’t you dare try to shame me or characterize me. You are weak and sad and I hope you find peace. But this is not the way. Shame on you!

Grow up, be a real woman and stop blaming others for your anger and unhappiness. Make yourself better instead of trying to make others feel worse.

I have been through more in my life than you could possibly imagine and I have NEVER resorted to hurting others to make myself feel somehow less crappy.

Go shovel your crazy somewhere else lady, we’re all full up here thanks 🙂
