A New Year

It's been a year since I started this blog.  I'm still not sure if I have much direction with my blogging.  But it is what it is, and it's me.  Sometimes I'm all over the place, and this blog will justify that.  So a new year begins and I've taken a small leave of absence from the blogging world.  I haven't read any blogs, posted any comments, or updated in a while.  I'm okay with that.  I'm enjoying our holidays, and the new year.  But that doesn't mean I haven't thought about those other blogger's, those who blog every day.  I have thought about them, almost daily and look forward to catching up on what they've been up to. 

But for now, I'm living in the moment.  I suppose that's my New Year's resolution.  Although I don't believe in resolutions, but if I were to have something on my list, that would be it.  Living in the moment is important to me.  Sometimes it means putting the camera down and enjoying a morning with my 2 year old son.  Sometimes it means leaving the computer off and shutting my phone off.  Even if it's for a day, it's important to me to reconnect with myself. 

I don't connect with my self very often because I'm finding I'm too busy, being me.  Scattered, forgetful, yet constant and reliable.  My New Year is a time to reflect on what matters most.  We spend so many days at the end of the year planning to do this, and to do that, it's hard to see what is happening now.

I had a week off from my job, and I took it one day at a time.  Sure I had plans, but they were light plans and anything could have changed if it needed to.  But the life of work was put on hold.  I needed that moment to pause and enjoy the minutes I had to rest, laugh, eat, and play. 

It won't be long until my days are in full swing with my old routines.  But for now, I feel like I'm still on vacation.  I'm definitely not ready to jump in head first with the New Year, because I'm committed to remembering what matters most to me.  Taking one day at a time will help me through that.  So for now, I purposely waited on writing my first post of the New Year until now.  I'm working on nurturing my soul and if you need me, that's where you can find me.  Now off to get another cup of tea! =)

What were your New Years resolutions?  Do you make any?

  1. This year, I've chosen a word as my theme for 2011. It's "space". As in, creating space in my life for myself. I like it. Instead of setting me up for failure, it's giving me permission to do what I want to do anyway. :)
