July 25, 2014… that was the date on my last blog post. It wasn’t that I meant to stop, it just happened. I had begun another business endeavor, my husband lost his job, and life swept me on. Sometimes changes come, not when we deliberately stop something, but rather when we stop deliberately doing it. And where there isn’t a determination and effort, nothing much is accomplished. Six months went by, then a year… and somehow I never found time to write. Not once.
In the last months I have spent a lot of time thinking about life, where it’s taking me, and who I want to become. I don’t have all those answers yet, but I know I don’t want to be sitting here in two more years wondering when I will write again, or what happened that I didn’t. I don’t want to continue wishing I could do something that is actually in my power to do. And so, I am determining to get out this sad, dusty blog, shine it up, and see where it leads.
Maybe it will be a lifestyle blog, perhaps a mommy blog, an artsy blog… or a bit of it all thrown together. But in these past years I have learned that the letter that is never sent, is never received. The book that is never written, is never read. The life that is never used just grows stale over time. So here I am, stepping out to see what I might accomplish, and determined to learn whatever I can in the meantime.
