An Introduction.

I am not perfect. Far from it.

I’d happily spend my entire day in my onesie watching One Tree Hill or Glee. It’s not sexy and it’s not productive. But it’s pretty much my happy place.

I reveal too much about myself. Heck, that’s why I’ve got this blog. So don’t expect this to be light reading.
I wear my heart on my sleeve and get confused when others don’t. If I like you, you will know. Pretty quickly. This sometime’s means I come on a bit strong and yeah, I’m not afraid to admit I’m clingy and obsessive.  That’s a definite flaw and I’m working on it. But hey, at least i’m clear on how I feel and I rarely give mixed messages. Ask me a question, I’ll answer honestly. But i’m not about to about to spill everything straight away, well, not to just anyone.

I firmly believe in true love. And I am an advocate for marriage. If you know about my family background, you might be surprised. Naturally, my wedding has been planned in my head for years. But honestly, I’d never marry someone I didn’t honestly believe in falling more in love with each day. I’ll probably marry the man that my daddy approves of. Yeah, I said man... not boy. Note it!

I also said daddy! I’m a daddy’s girl. But I adore my mum. My entire family are my inspiration. I will talk about them to anyone who will listen. I genuinely believe that my twin sister is the best thing that ever happened to me, after Jesus. But I’m not naive enough to tell you we don’t fight. A big part of our siblinghood is to tell the other when they’re wrong.

I only wish I was half as intelligent, beautiful, sophisticated and amazing as my older sister, Sam. She inspires me to work hard to be whatever the hell I want to be, and also to wear vintage. And only ever have my legs or boobs out. Yeah, she’s important to have around.

Recently I’ve met two of the most inspiring women ever. They’ve opened my eyes to just how much God is using women in his ministry. Seriously, don’t even start the “women in the church” debate with me. It’s not that I don’t enjoy the odd theological discussion, and it’s not that my arguments are so biblically based that I’ll beat you straight out. I just won’t even have that discussion. I am a woman in leadership and God is using me. End of.

I’m not ashamed to admit that I suffer with depression. I think people are either too scared to discuss mental health issues, or see it as such a buzz word which everyone who feels “a bit down” uses. That’s not depression. But if we don’t start talking about it, then it’s still a taboo. And that’s never going to ease the situation.  Perhaps I’ll write a blog about it one day. Whilst i’m feeling open.

I wrote most of this blog in my head, I was trying to think of all the things I’d want my next boyfriend to know about me. Though, I’d probably want them to hear it from me, rather then read it in blog form. But hey there, if you’re reading!

I genuinely believe, that no matter how hard it seems sometimes. I will fall in love again. One day I’m going to be married, with kids and probably foster kids and goodness knows who else living in my house. That was just always how I imagined my life being. 

I love babies. That’s something people learn about me quickly. They amaze me, to actual speechlessness, and it takes a lot to do that! I can’t wait to have my own. That’s probably my biggest goal in life. Everything else comes second to having a family.

Well, i’ve written a page long document as my introduction to “Ramblings and Ranting: Being LMG”. There is more I could say. But I don’t want to share too much (some of you are probably thinking it’s too late)

Please comment and let me know what you think, and what you want to know.

Bye For Now. x
