Hello!! Whoever you are…

For most of my life, I have wanted to share my writing, art, and thoughts with the world. When I was a struggling 15-year-old, the first time I discovered my ability and love of writing was sitting on my bed after a night with friends. I was feeling lost as most fifteen-year-olds do, and I decided for some reason to pick up a pen and start writing poetry. I wrote two poems that night in red pen on lined paper. I wish I had these poems today, but sadly they are lost in the paper trail of my life. A few days later, i picked up these poems and looked at them for the first time. I was taken back by how real, raw, and good they were. They really spoke to me and described the feelings I was feeling on the inside. If I am to be honest, which is what this website is all about, I didn’t remember writing the words that were on those pages. They came from a place outside of myself. I have often and still often write things down and then wonder where those words come from… but… This is writing for another time.

I am excited to have a space to talk about all things life. It will be real and raw and sometimes spiritual, sometimes artistic, sometimes random but always honest and truthful. I often have these epiphanies and then forget them an hour later if I don’t write them down. Sometimes I write them down, but do nothing with them. Finally, at the age of 38, they are going to get written down. I have a space to share what I know, what I think, what I feel, and my general ramblings. You have a choice to read them.

My name is Monica. I have taught kids for many many years, and when I was teaching younger kids, they would often call me Momica. So years later Momicaintheraw was born. I thrive on honesty and rawness. I love to see people as their raw selves and try to bring more of my raw self forward. There is a beauty in the raw unpolishedness of things, people, places, thoughts, etc. And so finally www.momicaintheraw.com was born. Enjoy!! Or don’t.¬† Just work towards being who you are meant to be and offering the gifts you are meant to offer to the world.
