In the words of Arnold Schwarzenegger, I’m back!
Four years ago, in the summer of 2012, my daughter and I decided to start a new hobby together; running. We started with a small, 3 mile fun run, and planned to increase from there. And with this new hobby, I wanted to create a unique way to track our progress.
And with that, my blog was born.
In the infancy stage, I wrote at least two times a week. Then, of course, life took over and it became once a week and then a few times a month. And at some point, most recently, I just stopped writing at all. There were times that I felt bad that I wasn’t writing; as if people would miss it. I felt a bit guilty as if I was neglecting something. I haven’t written in FOREVER. Maybe for a lack of what to write about. Maybe because I was too busy enjoying life to write. Or maybe I have been just too lazy.
But then I realized that there is some part of me that was missing that creative part of my life. It has been an outlet; a way to express myself about subjects and people that I can not necessary share in ‘real life’ for one reason or another.
For such a long time, I have been just living. Going to work, loving my daughter and my fur babies, hanging with friends, searching for Mr. Right and be active but not really FULLY engaging in any of those situations. And over the last few months, I have been trying to figure out why I have been fully involved in anything or anyone. And though, I don’t think that me getting back to blogging will answer all my questions, I do believe it is a one of the many steps that I am employing in this new chapter of my life.
So get ready… I’m back and maybe better than ever.
— UPDATE –
For better or worse, I have launched a new chapter of my life. I have moved back to Florida but this time, closer to Fort Lauderdale/ Miami area! I am working for an amazing new organization as an Event Planner/ Manager of a brand new venture (more to come later). I am single and so ready to Mingle! Bring on the attractive South Florida men! I am looking for someone different; nothing like I have ever dated. I am living on my own for the first time in 20+ years but with a roommate (more on that later) and so ready to see what that is all about. I am still a fun, involved Mama but from afar as I enjoy my daughter launching her own new chapter at college. And I am ready for new experiences, new adventures and up for anything. In the words of someone that I recently gotten to know and completly look up to as a great inspiration model (Ms. Kelsey Lehnen), I am going to remember to put myself first in this new chapter and will do something that makes me happy every day.
Ready to join this new chapter with me? Love to hear your comments!
