The hiatus is done. It’s nice to be back in the blogging/social media world. There were days that I missed it, and days that I didn’t as much. This past month was really hard. I had the miscarriage the week before Mother’s Day and it lasted through Mother’s Day. I am so much better now than I was at the end of April; however I still have my moments.
I learned a lot. I learned people don’t always say the right things. I learned that prayer, friends, and drinks from Sonic are amazing gifts to the heart. I learned that sometimes it is just hormones. I also learned that I really need to be honest with myself and who I am, without feeling guilty or trivial to the world around me.
I don’t like to be left behind or left out of anything. I want to be relevant and respected. I want to read all the cool books, be interested in all the right trends, and have the ability to describe every experience with energy and enthusiasm. At least I wanted that before.
Now, I want to embrace a more select group of interests. I want to be picky with my time and how and with whom I spend it. I don’t want to dictate what I do by what I see on the internet or in the culture around me. Most of all, I want to share all of this with you.
I want to talk about TV shows that I watch or books that I read, no matter how silly they are. I want to write about things I ponder without wondering if people will stop reading my blog because it’s too wordy. I want to talk about my garden, even if I’ve killed a plant or allowed too many weeds to move in. I want to talk about the silly things my dogs do and not be afraid that it’s annoying. I want to share the songs I sing to the top of my lungs, no matter how eclectic or crazy. I want to talk about my journey with running or yoga, even if I never run a marathon or have the ability to stand on my head. I want to talk about the places I’ve seen and things I do, no matter if it’s ordinary or extraordinary.
I’ve chosen areas that mean a lot to me. If I lived as if no one was watching and money was no object, these are the things I would do. I hope you enjoy the coming posts as I slowly get back into the blogging world. What are your favorite interests and things to do when no one is watching?
