A New Year: 2015

What is New?

It’s a new year and I realized that the only way I can achieve some type of mental freedom is to start releasing my thoughts online. I’ve had some false starts when trying to start a blog before with too many ideas about presentation but not content. I wasn’t sure what I wanted to write about and felt that addressing my own personal life would be a faux pas. I thought no one would want to read about my tumultuous life as an Asperger, Lesbian, Hispanic, Spiritual, IT professional with a deep interest on everyday world events and life transitions. But then something happened: I started reading other peoples’ blogs about their interests and their lives and saw the great positive response these bloggers got from their readers. I also noticed the way the commenters formed their own little communities in the comments area, adding to the information presented, debating and sharing insights. Therefore I decided to forget about what I wanted to do before and concentrate on sharing myself.

I don’t know how this blog will turn out. I just know that I feel a very strong need to share thoughts, ideas and stories with other people. As an Asperger woman it’s very difficult for me to feel comfortable interacting socially. My “alone time” requirement is greater than what average people need to function socially and it has created a vacuum of opportunities and fulfillment in my life.

I consider this New Year as the start of significant new changes regarding how I deal with work, family, friends, developing a new Computer Services business that is about Quality and not Quantity, but most importantly: growing beyond my perceived and self-imposed limitations.

It may sound quite cliché but this year really feels like the first year of the rest of my life.

Love and Peace to all of you!
