I have been noticing that a lot of people are taking a break from their blogs. It would seem that this is the year of reflection for many. In talking through emails/phone calls I’ve discovered that some of you are on a mission- a mission to find yourself and reconnect with all the parts of you that somehow- you thought you lost. Even I have not been posting as regularly as I used to.
I think for me though, it’s the idea of giving myself some balance. I’m more focused on some other things that I want to accomplish and I’ve been giving some more thought to what else I’d like to explore here on this blog. I love to write my poems, short stories, and such…but I want to do more with it. Perhaps I’ll start to include stories of the families I work with here at my Habitat affiliate (with their permission of course). But I would like to share the wonderful things I see in my world of work; I want to make good on showing the world that change can and does happen in small increments, and with small hands at work- just like mine.
Either way though, I’m here, rooting for each of you who are in the midst of finding your wings. You’ve got a friend here, who is just an email away if you need a place to vent, to let off steam, to shout out epiphanies, or to simply talk to have someone to talk to. And I’ll still be around here, posting everyday when it strikes me or every few days as it continues to be a busy, sometimes heartbreaking- but nonetheless, still a wonderful roller coaster ride of life.
Have a beautiful day everyone and hopefully I’ll be back tomorrow with some more thoughts to share :-)
