Welcome to Blogtoberfest! I’ve lost track of what day it is!
I’ve fallen down on the job the last few days…away, illness, planning, lots of changes. It’s going to take me a few days to get back in the swing of things, and back onto my creative journey.
As with any open-ended journey that has no set plans, this one takes me to interesting places, and in directions that are often unexpected. In a relatively short period of time, I’ve come almost full circle. I started out creating for myself and my family with an eye for potentially developing a creative business, worked my way through the pros and cons of THAT plan, and find myself back at creating for myself and my family. It’s not at all what I expected, but the idea is growing on me more with each passing day.
I mean, what’s not to love about being freed from the stress of HAVING to do anything?
In attempting to figure out how to find more time in my life, I even thought about giving up the blog (for a few minutes, anyway!) but as I prioritized the things that give me the most joy, this is one of the few I just don’t want to do away with. Now Facebook? There I can easily make some modifications! There is just no reason for me to need to be on for so many hours a day. So if you notice I’m missing, don’t worry. I’ll be around, just not during all my waking hours!
And t.v. My next most abused form of entertainment. Seriously. I’m pretty sure I can keep up with the goings on in Port Charles and Salem by checking in once a week instead of every day. And all the hours of Food Network have not resulted in a single meal going onto the table.
So. I’m starting my lists again. Projects that I NEED to finish. Ones I want to finish. Ones I want to start. Areas to explore, ones that I most definitely don’t.
New beginnings are exciting. Even when they keep happening over and over…
