About a year ago I decided that I wanted to start a blog so that I could share my journey of becoming more of the authentic me God had created. I had just turned 50 and was moving into a different phase of my journey. I wrote a little bit about that here. This was really just a way for me to journal, which is something I have done all my life. I didn’t really think I would gain a huge following; wasn’t even sure anyone would be interested!
But I digress…
As I got into it I really started enjoying the writing process and had even attempted some monthly writing challenges. But as with most things in life circumstances and road blocks got in the way… my youngest daughter moved to Alaska taking her kiddos with her, which tilted me off my axis for a bit; we took the plunge and built a home – need I say more! And then my Mom’s health took a nose dive which left me plummeting to earth trying to maneuver through losing her (still haven’t been able to write about that), along with the new challenges of my Dad’s health!
I don’t consider myself a writer by any stretch of the imagination, but I believe God gives us desires and passions that are a gift from Him and that’s how I see this blog. I know through all of this He is showing me how to navigate through this adventure and learn to laugh, cry, scream, jump for joy and enjoy the plans He has for me – as me…not some version of who everyone else thinks I should be.
So…”Let’s Try This Again!” As I lay out my road map this time I am going to be flexible and let God do the navigating. No preconceived ideas about what is going on here. Just my willingness to share my love of God and this life He has blessed me with.
