My name is Julie. My friends call me Jules. Thank you for clicking over here and taking the time to read my blog.
I like to write about all sorts of things — mostly my family and life. I’ve been writing since I was a girl. I enjoy sharing some of my thoughts here with you now.
I hope you enjoy clicking through the various articles. The easiest way for you to find them is to click on the most recent posts that I have listed on my right hand side bar.
I also encourage my readers to comment and share their experiences through writing. This is most easily done by clicking on the ‘comments’ link at the bottom of every post. It’s tiny, I know, but you can find it!
I’m just a person, just like yourself. I grew up in a nice family with a brother and sister and a decent education, good actually. Maybe even great.
The reason I started writing was when I was young, like eight or so, I started writing my thoughts in a diary.
It was a little Snoopy Diary with a key that I later lost and had to cut through. It even was supposed to be a five year diary. I wrote about my days, my thoughts, my worries, school. You name it.
I learned that writing is an excellent form of communication.
I’m proud to be participating in writing a blog and sharing my life experiences with you here now.
My goal for this blog is to act as a community leader by promoting sports, education, arts and community service — and above all, writing. I do what I love and I love what I do. I hope you do too.
Thank you for visiting.
Inspiration and Motivation
I often write about motivation and inspiration because they are two of my favorite subjects. One of my most inspirational stories was when I was in high school on swim team.
My sister was my greatest motivator. She’d cheer ‘Go Julie’ as I swam down the lanes. She advised me to swim away from the shark or towards the chocolate cake. We now both agree to swim away from the chocolate cake. I’m joking! The point is, we all have different motivators in our lives. I was lucky at a young age to have had a great one.
