I have been thinking about starting a new blog for a while, but I have waffled because I tend to be all over the place and blogs should be focused on a topic. My hope is that if I just start writing, a theme will become apparent or people may just want to see what direction I’m going in today.
I am a wife, mom, and entrepreneur. I love travel, tattoos, animals, and home decor. I wouldn’t say I’m a conspiracy theorist, but I believe that people need to look at the source and understand what people have to gain by decisions being made. Look for the spin doctoring and bias in what is being reported. The internet has given us unprecedented access to information. Thankfully we are no longer at the mercy of mainstream media! But the downside is the information overload. At times I stop following current events because the amount of corruption and greed makes me want to stop the planet and get off, or at least move to an island away from all of this. I call it conscious ignorance; where I choose to ignore things, not read stories on certain topics etc. I know people abuse animals. It breaks my heart. I support animal rescue agencies and all of my dogs are rescues. I don’t need to see pictures and read stories of animal abuse. If there is something productive I can do, I am willing to do it, but reading stories and seeing pictures and videos just causes me stress.
My current obsession is travel. Business is good right now, so we have decided to go on an awesome trip to Japan and Thailand, with a side trip to Cambodia (Siem Reap – Angkor Wat). I spend a lot of time researching and planning the trip. We have done some incredible road trips over the last few years. I’ll make my first official blogpost (after this introduction) on seeing Canada and the US by car.
Thanks for reading! Comments or post suggestions are appreciated.
