About Smokey Mirrors
Hi, I'm Jane and welcome to my blog.
Right off the bat I'm going to 'fess up that I'm really just your average 40-something trying to navigate life with the minimum of fuss. As much as I'd like to be, I don't think I'm particularly savvy, sassy or successful...you won't see any pretty, polished, filtered photos here I'm afraid! Nope, it's just me and my life as it actually is.
I chose the name Smokey Mirrors as a reference to the well-known phrase that means to obscure or embellish the truth with false information. Why's that? Well, the older I get the more I learn about how hard life can get and how, despite my best efforts, the bad stuff doesn't just go away. My life has taken a lot of unexpected turns and through it all, I feel like I've spent a ridiculous amount of time worrying about how it all appears on the outside.
With the aid of this blog, I am trying to live my life unfiltered and honestly. I talk about some very real (sometimes painful, sometimes funny) life experiences and share my honest opinions about things that can affect a lot of people and I'd love for you to join me.
Hopefully you'll enjoy reading something here and comments are always very welcome so please let me know what you think. Or you could get in touch below and suggest some things you'd like me to talk about, or maybe just for a chat! I would love to hear from you.
Bye for now.
