Identity Crisis

29 Aug

So I’ve decided to blog. I had some thoughts about one subject in particular, which lead me to think about blogging. I’m not really certain why, It just adds another dimension, a depth, to the profiles we create on Social Media sites. Sometimes I have something slightly more meanigful to say, that doesn’t fit in 140 characters!

I knew what I wanted my first blog to be about, so I set about writing my piece. I let my thoughts flow and a ‘blog’ was written quickly. Then I set about designing my blog page. I spent ages on this part. I couldn’t get the design right but eventually settled for something. I couldn’t wait to show Mr R. He responded by saying that it ‘wasn’t me’. Not because he is hard or mean, he’s quite the opposite. He was right. The subject that I had chosen to blog about was quite serious, so I created something serious to go with it. However, that doesn’t reflect me, or indeed, our family in general.

I then spent many hours trying to create something, but the truth is that I was having an identity crisis. I tried ‘fun’ but then I have many serious things to talk about. I tried ‘interesting’ but often I don’t think we’re of much interest at all. I didn’t know which bracket our family fell in to.

Then I realised (with help from @RuralSgt, @JoanneHannan @KatieMagnet..) that we don’t fit in a box at all. In fact, I doubt many people do. Our lives are that of a normal family, however Mr R’s job has a heavy influence in everyday life. His shift work, his pay, conditions and danger are just a few things that influence us all on a daily basis. We often don’t know what we are doing from one day to the next. Then I knew that this was the exact reason for the blog. I wanted to blog about the things that affect us, within our relationships, and as a family, because of the Police.

It can be pretty tough being married to a cop. I hope to blog about a variety of issues we come upon through day-to-day life. Some will be good, some bad but the one thing that’s a certainty, is that I am so very, very proud.
