I am on my own personal search for “Why”? I have learned many valuable lessons over the last two years that have allowed me to TRULY restart blogging. I began my website when I was inspired by a freeing change in my life that allowed me the opportunity to simply search for who I am. Now, I am still searching but for the “why”. Stepping back and looking at my life through a different lens has been refreshing. Before, I did not want to revisit my past. No particular reason except it was not interesting enough to bother. This was very hard to grasp as I never felt as if my life was uninteresting. I was caught up in trying to create unique traditions for my children to cherish and to count on so they remember the dynamic upbringing that I gave them. I never realized how my children became my life’s hopes and dreams. I gave up on my personal hopes and dreams and focused only on what is the best path for my children. I wanted no wrong turns or bad decisions. Unrealistic, yes, but I took my time to research, explore and decide and then implement. It was worth it!
Now my search begins… I am having a difficult time staying focused on how I should invest my time. I have so many things I want to do… Long term… I want to learn more about building brand awareness, helping non-profits organizations, web development (build a plugin/outline a mobile app) and new community projects. In other words, education! Short term… storage issues resolved (memorabilia and my boxes of past project materials), decide on the colors I want surrounding me, plan my stairwell theme, stage my home for Thanksgiving (cheaply) and complete my Christmas shopping before December. In other words, material things!
So… in the meantime, I will enjoy every minute with the people I love. I will strive to put myself in situations that will allow me to broaden my education and I will make an effort to surround myself with items that help me do the first two… 🙂
