.....And so it begins......2010
I've been absent from the blogoshpere for a long time. I've stopped by sporadically and without much gusto....I miss writing....it is a goal of mine to get back to the writing. Thinking I might have lost my writing wizard I've shied away and funneled my creativity into other areas. Today I feel a pull to refocus, as always, the looming New Year inspires me to take stock. I'm not compelled to make a list of resolutions, but rather make note of what I would like to focus on in the new year.
When I began this blog I was searching for something....certainly the name of my blog spells out my focus, to LIVE instead of hide, but I'm wondering if there aren't more ways in which I can LIVE that I have been avoiding. This might be something to focus on.
My first quarter of school will be over next week, finals week. I am confident my grades are where I want them, but I feel like I could have done better, been more committed, so I will dial up my focus there.
And I am already feeling the affects of winter wearing off...yes, I know winter has only just begun, but today I busied myself with a sort of purge and it felt inspiring, like an early spring cleaning. Feels like I might need to revamp the blog, too, so please stay tuned!
Tonight I will send out my wishes for the New Year to the "Wishing Moon".....the magical Blue Moon, which happens to be on New Year's Eve......
Happy New Year to you all and thank you for your inspiring words and your friendships.
I am a woman on a mission to begin the life I have taken for granted for too long. Many changes have come in the last five years and while I have weathered them, I have not seriously taken any action to make changes for the enrichment of my life. The stories of my journey will be posted here......stay tuned for daily status of finally living a life not lived.....
To really live.....quit waiting for tomorrow....what if tomorrow never comes....what if you wake up, get dressed and head off to that job you hate and you get hit by a bus on the way.....what will you regret NOT doing? Telling someone you're sorry for hurting them? Giving your kid the 'attaboy' he or she needs to get them to the next level in their growth? Telling your friends how much they mean to you? Being there for your spouse when they've had a really bad day? Or, maybe you keep saying you're going to finally become the person you were meant to be......and you missed your chance because you didn't believe that NOW IS THE RIGHT TIME!
Been There, Done THAT..........
