How did I get here?
My brain is a never-ending conversation…my heart is full of joy…but both are trapped in an introverted personality. If you add to that, moving to a new country, becoming a wife and a mother, all in the same year at the age of 33…introverted is an understatement. I was invisible!!! I thought that opening a Facebook account would give me the opportunity to mend the gap between who I was and what people perceived of me in my new home. Indeed Facebook helped me build relationships with my new American family, community…but with a price tag. You see, being raised in the peaceful Portuguese islands of Azores, and having lived there most of my life, the word bullying was a very abstract concept to me. In time I discovered that in my new country bullying is a very real presence… and Facebook is its favorite playground. So I turned my back to Facebook, and my need to communicate brought me here – WordPress.com. Only in September of 2016 I started posting regularly and building connections. My community is yet a very tiny seed, but packed with rich flavors.
I need more advise than I can give…
What I found it is bringing some bloggers to check my “space” is to respond to the WordPress Picture and Word Prompts.
They are all very special! I thank them too for bringing joy, humor, insight and inspiration to me. Thank you!
