Hello, what is this? My inner onion.

Hello, what is this? My inner onion.

So I decided to start a blog. It’ll be interesting to see if I manage more than a couple of entries. I’m not sure what it’s about yet. It could be kind of like Seinfeld, a blog about nothing.

I am one of those people who has a lot going on in their head at a very fast rate, all the time. Interestingly, I have a friend, Christine, who I believe thinks faster than me. Just one. Person that is. Who thinks fast. I don’t really have friends. She is a work colleague, a fellow teacher, whom I am friendly to and with. And because Christine is so smart and witty and thinks quick, I really like talking to her. So I could kind of say she is a work friend. Those of you who don’t hold personal friends will know what I mean.

I have been a bit upset with my head lately. It’s not what it used to be. I think my head is morphing. Not physically (well I hope not), but in processing. My mental processing is becoming quite scattered and unorganised. I don’t think it’s ageing. I think it’s because I’m on a lot of medication and my health is a roller coaster ride. My life is morphing too. I’m becoming reinvented as a person, at 41. What the hell am I talking about? Well, since just before I turned 40, my world as I knew it, has, layer by layer, peeled open like an onion. In fact, it is still peeling and it has made me cry a lot.

Inside my inner onion I found:

-I am single (first time since I was 17)

-I am happy single

-My ex bf’s behaviour was shit

-I have a chronic illness, and possibly more than one

-I love my job and will try to keep teaching

-My son is my rock

-My son, who is my rock, is gay

-I love all sorts of things like art and clothes and vintage stuff

-I like travel and adventure

-Some days I just have to do nothing

-I am in charge of my life

-I like to challenge myself in my life

-I can make myself happy

So I guess my blog will be about this stuff. It will be about living and loving life, no matter what.


My name is Lisa.

And this is my blog, lovemylifeanyway.
