Early this morning, after I got hubby off to work (at 5:30 am, oooooo that is so early. LOL) I just couldn't sleep this morning, so I got on the computer. Well today I decided to do things kinda backwards compared to what I normally do. Man oh man. I have just spent about 2hrs and 20 min's looking at and reading all the blogs that I love.
I am still amazed at just how this blog thing seems to have filled a need for so many of us. Some blog about their daily chores, other blog about cooking, still many more blog about church, family, work, or daily events that happen. I have found that across the board, there are so very many women who are so talented, skilled, motivated, and full. Full of so very many more things, (than I fear the world has ever imagined), that as the world has view "housewives" to be. In times past, a housewife was viewed as one who just merely cooks, cleans, has babies and takes care of them, spends money Willie nillie (like those who are depicted on TV), are who just sits around on their behinds, just eating bon bons. But as I daily go and read these blogs, it occurs to me, that even though some may view the computer world as "not a good thing", I have found that others, like me, have found this blogging world to be a great resource, and an outlet for expression, a way to share with other women across the world (of whom are doing the same kind of things that they are) ideas, tips, recipe's, frugal ideas and lifestyles. But it is also seemingly a great resource for us/ them to share all the many ideas, thoughts, feelings, concerns, lifestyles, struggles, wants, needs etc., with other women who are like minded. So very many women in the world, are so much smarter than they are ever given due credit for. I think that they, like myself, wanted and needed a way to share all of the many things that go on in their heads and hearts.
For me blogging is also a journal of sorts for me personally. I was wanting and needing a way that interested me (not scrap booking or writing in a journal. That is just not my thing) to be able to keep up with so many things. Things like my kids events, recipe's, frugal stuff, cooking and cleaning, picture's with which I could combine words to accurately describe. I also wanted a way to be able to share with my long distance family, everything that is happening.
I, with-in myself, also had a need to get all of the thoughts and feelings that go on
inside me, out and "onto paper" if you will. But I hate having to sit down and write on paper. I wanted and needed a way to combine so very many different things at the same time, so that the whole and complete picture & idea could be really understood. I needed a way to think through my thoughts, in kind of an "out loud" kind of way. I am a visual person, so blogging (once I really understood how it could be used, LOL) seemed to be the avenue that I had been longing for.
Housewives, women, mothers, newlywed young women, and even young girls are so much more than they are usually given credit for. These women, like me, seemingly have a need to share all they are. We are more than the world acknowledges that we are.
I, from time to time will have someone in my family read something that I wrote about in here, and they usually say something REALLY STUPID like, "who are you trying to impress", or "why are you trying to sound so smart". WELL DUH!!! Maybe it's because deep inside I really am a smart woman. Maybe, just maybe, I really do know some fairly intelligent things, that I need to communicate to others or the world. This is partly what I have always found so frustrating with my life. Just because my aspirations for my life did not include some thing as lofty as being a lawyer, doctor, business professional, marketing annalist, painter, composer, inventor, etc you get the idea. It has never meant that I did not have any aspirations at all. It simply meant that maybe they were very different from what the general majority of the world views as productive and ambitious.
My goals have always been (in the world's view, and even to my own parents) boring and far too simple. That in turn over time has caused family and the world to view me as stupid, unintelligent, or unmotivated. UUUGGG!!! To which all I can say is "I AM NONE OF THOSE THINGS"!!!
I had always viewed motherhood and mothers, as the very goal that I wanted to obtain and to be. Now I am, and have obtained my dreams. YEAH FOR ME!!!!!
I guess I am not the only woman, housewife, mother, homemaker that feels this way. If you don't believe me, just start looking at, and reading all of the great blogs, from other women that are out there in the cyber world. It will prove to you, as it has to me, that everyday we are surrounded by a wealth of intelligence and knowledge that so many women are needing, wanting, and trying to share with those who will listen to them, and their hearts.
My sweet Lord has truly made mothers, housewives, homemakers, women, young ladies, and girls, a very vast group of information. God made us just the way a woman needed to be. It's just a shame that the majority of the world doesn't even try to "see us" for all we have and are.
I just love blogging and reading others blogs as well.
