So it looks like I’m blogging again. I mean, here I am, in a “new post” page, feeling ready to roll. It just feels like time.
A lot has happened in the last five months. We stayed in Cleveland. Todd got a new job. Seth got a puppy of his own. Riley is doing extremely well, and we decided to home school Seth too. My sister fell in love and moved to Texas. My dear friend Clarissa died. I wrote almost every day, but nothing for a book. At least I don’t think so.
Back in August, I was overwhelmed in so many ways. I’d kind of lost my footing and needed time to figure things out. Needed to put my own private process first, for the good of myself and my family. I wasn’t sure I’d ever pick up this blog again. Blogging itself had started to feel unhealthy for me. It’s a whole animal of its own, isn’t it? It can buoy you; and it can kick up your worst insecurities.
So I come back to this page a little stronger and wiser, I hope. And more deliberate with my intentions.
If you’d like to read along, I’d be honored. If you think it’s crap I stopped writing here and now I’m starting again, and you never want to read another word of mine, I honor that too.
Wishing you more self-love, more honoring whatever is right for you, in 2011.
Breathe that in.
Let it be.
And so it is.
