Hello!! It's been forever since I last wrote. I knew I'd be taking a bit of a break, but I had no intention of checking out for nearly 5 months. Yikes!! I've been itching to come back though!!
I was going to wait until tomorrow to come back. But then I thought...why not today? Leap Day is fun, right? So, here we are!
Despite my absence, I've been thinking about blogging a lot lately. I struggle with what I want this blog to be, what all I want to share. I've had a blog of some sort for the past 11 years. Crazy! Initially, it was just a collection of my daily ramblings. Not so entertaining...but I do enjoy going back to read the archives. The blog world seems so much bigger now. I don't really feel the need to share my day to day anymore. Let's be honest, that would be incredibly boring anyway. But I do still feel the need to share.
I've been praying a lot about where to go with this blog. I'm not sure I have the answer yet, but I'm confident I'll find my way. One thing that's been weighing on my mind lately is to get out of my routine. I think routines are great...I'm not all the excited about change or crazy adventures. I like my days to be pretty consistent. And, believe me, they are. But, I feel like that can also keep you from blessings. From meeting new people and experiencing new things. And I've actually got a craving for that. I'm not going to be auditioning for the Amazing Race or anything, but I definitely want a break from the ordinary. At least a little bit. :)
I stumbled upon this article today. LOVE it. If you've been around this blog anytime at all, you know I'm a big fan of goal setting. You'll also know that for all my hopes and dreams....I'm not great at the follow through. I think this article really gets to my issue. I try to bite off WAY more than I can chew. As absurd as this sounds, the idea of setting small goals is not that appealing to me. Of course, the idea of failing is even less appealing. So I'm really excited to try this approach to my goals. I'm trying to keep that in mind as I plan my March Goals (which I'll share tomorrow). Hopefully this will make a big difference!
Happy Leap Day!
