A Hubber Humbled

Updated on March 12, 2010

Hubnugget Wannabe

 Truly, I cannot begin to express how flattered I am to have one of my pieces honored with a nomination!  When I joined, it was initially to have a place to vent my frustrations, impart life-earned lessons, and maybe help other people to understand what it means to walk in someone else's shoes.  Then I got to know the hub pages community.

Unfortunately, I have been the victim of far too many violent crimes.  Granted a bit of naivete on my part helped to make me unaware of my vulnerability but it also had a little something to do with being in the wrong place at the wrong time.  That being said, I have been able to rise above my victim status to enter into the elite club of survivor.  It is my deepest desire that by expressing my sentiments and allowing others to know my pain, then maybe there is one person out there who can learn and either avoid the road I traveled all-together or at least get off of it sooner.

The warm response I have gotten since joining has been incredibly encouraging.  It has opened my eyes to other ways I can use my growing writing abilities to aid others, even if just to give them a laugh.  Consequently I have altered my initial goals for how I intended to use hub pages and have refocused on participating with and immersing myself in this wonderfully diverse community.  That is provided, of course, that you all will have me!
