Life can be stressful with a critical voice in my head that criticizes me.

It has never been easy for me. Even as a child I had been bullied so badly by other kids and even kids that were older than I was. Being age 38 feels good though. My 30s are my best decade so far. I know this is a great time in my life for me to enjoy. I’m doing well. I am careful what I say to people. I want to be able to enjoy my life and celebrate my three blogging award nominations without people that don’t like me raining on my parade. This is my reason for not sharing my memoir with anyone but my memoir teacher and focusing on my blog and my book project. So many things are going my way. I want it that way. I have a feeling this cool fun thing called memoir writing is not easy for any writer.
