Hi. I’m Melissa.
Here are some quick things about me that I might mention in my posts.
Why Adulting Reluctantly? – This is really where I feel I am in life. My body tells me every day that I am in my mid-40s but my brain refuses to believe it. It still thinks I am in my mid-20s and it doesn’t want to do the things that adults in their 40s “should” do. And so, every day, I do things I need to do in my 40s but I do it reluctantly.
Why a blog? – I am not a great writer. I admit that. I write the way I talk and I am not polished there either. But, I keep a journal every day and a few years ago, I realized that I really wanted to share knowledge with the world. I started an online business but found out that I don’t have the drive to be an entrepreneur. So, blogging just makes sense. I might do some videos from time to time too because I like doing that, but not all the time.
What will you find here?
- Chronic illness – I have Fibromyalgia and will often mention chronic illness in my posts. I have a fairly mild case. If you want to know what that feels like think back to the last time you had the flu. Remember that achy feeling? That is how I feel every day. My body aches all the time. Some days, it gets worse and we call that a flare. But most days, I just ache and I can generally manage life like that.
- Adoption – I sometimes write about how I am adopted and my recent journeys to find my birth families.
- Adulting tips – if I figure out a solution to something for myself, I will share it here.
- Random stuff – I have interests that run from college football to ballet, from knitting to saving our planet. I will write about all of it and everything in between.
