It feels like I’ve always been writing in one way or another
I find it hard to believe that I’ve been writing blog entries for ten years.Ten!
Over the years my musings have found various homes, some private, some public but always with one goal in mind – creative release of thoughts. I’ve never been driven to write with the premise of gaining a large readership but simply to throw my thoughts out there and hope they resonate on some level with someone.
Trying to find the time to write has been challenging
The past few years have been an eclectic mix of competing priorities for my time – trying to balance a full time job with having babies and running a photography business. It has been a challenge! Unfortunately the things I find most fulfilling from a creative standpoint were shoved to the side as a result.
While I have many things I anticipate achieving in 2012 (I’ll share some of them soon), one of them is to afford myself the time to enjoy the creative pursuits I enjoy the most – the things that bring me a sense of joy, of accomplishment and a way in which to satisfy my inherent need for a way to express myself through words.
I’ve decided that instead of focusing my posts on one topic or write with one central theme that I will let this be a reflection of true life. It will be a hodge podge of various thoughts and feelings on a variety of subjects with lots of photographs and fun items thrown in to keep things interesting.
Sometimes you just need to give yourself permission
The most important thing is that I have given myself permission to find this time in my sometimes hectic life to stop and take a breather and put my thoughts into words. I hope it will allow me to connect with others in a way that is meaningful while capturing some of life’s moments for future reflection.
I encourage your comments and look forward to inundating you with many posts in the coming weeks 🙂
It is good to be back.
