Closed ~ Open

Anybody who knows me, would say that I am a bit reserved or shy. I have come across to people at first as being snobbish but when they get to know me, they come to realize I am anything but that. I wonder sometimes why I am the way that I am. I have been like this my whole life. I sometimes think they may not like me or have no interest in what I have to say about a particular subject. I wish that I could be more out going and not be so timid. But, then I wouldn't be who I am I guess.

Blogging has been good for me in that sense. It has made me reach inside myself and just put it out there; whatever I am feeling. It has also helped me to work through some of life's challenges. Though to be completely honest, it has also tripped me up. I can read some blogs where it seems the person has no problem expressing themselves and then I think, 'What is wrong with me?' I am learning to accept that, I am who I am.

It is all that I have to give.

And that is okay.

I am okay.


  1. great post and to be perfectly honest
    I LOVE WHO YOU ARE! have from the day you were born always will!

    sending you hugs and love


  2. Angela Marie, I've got a challenge for you. Go back through your past postings and read them as if you were reading someone else's blog. I guarantee that you will be impressed with the writing skills of that person.

    You may be timid and shy when people first meet you, but I am convinced that once you have made real contact with them you come out of your shell.

    I have always been impressed with your articulateness, honesty, courage, vulnerability and writing skills. I look forward to your postings. If we lived closer, I know that Maryann and I would be delighted to spend time with you and Charlie.

    I also agree that blogging has been good for you. You wouldn't have been able to say in person what you have posted here. As they used to say in those old commercials, "You've come a long way, baby!"

    I'm proud and blessed to have crossed your path.

  3. thnx for sharing ur thoughts dear!take care!

  4. You are more than OK!

    Seriously, blogging is so great, because for one, you can take our time and then edit if you want to... If only everyday conversation was that easy.

    Your blog is beautiful and heartfelt and I have no doubt you are the same.

  5. I know the "open flower" Angela and she is wonderful... so is the shy Angela ~~ A perfect combination and it all comes out perfectly in your Blog.

    I am the lucky one for not just knowing you as a blogger, but a "special" daughter in person.

    Loving you dear
    Wanda Mom
