Blogging, what’s that? >> This is a question I’ve asked myself lately (in between Netflix binges of course). Why am I doing this? Is it worth it? I have been taking more and more breaks recently, and it’s been kinda nice. I’ve even debated leaving it all behind. But…dare I say it, I’d miss it. I know I would. So at least for today, I’m sticking around.
Twenty-seventeen brought some good memories as well as some not-so-good times. Obviously there were tough moments in the spotlight, and the news was often something we feared rather than enjoyed.
I’m not going to recap my year and I’m not going to give you some lofty goals for 2018. Come to think of it, I think I had a word-of-the-year last year, which I of course forgot after a few weeks. Isn’t that how resolutions tend to go? Time passes, and things generally stay the same.
As I’m tucked under various layers, waiting to thaw out, I thinking about what I want for these next few months (which will surely fly by like all the rest). And maybe all I want from 2018 is simply joy. I have quite the amazing life, so why not continue to open myself to more opportunities for happy moments. I believe it will be a good year, so it must be so. >> I will keep repeating it, so it’s true.
I will ask you one question though: what do you love reading about?
- my life
- random thoughts on random things
- simply photos
- other (because who doesn’t love an ‘other’ option)
Before I go (and disappear again), here’s some random occurrences from the past few weeks, because I know y’all missed me so ;)
I visited my fam in Alabama for the holiday. It was so good to see them!
I tried to ice skate. As a kid who grew up on the water, you’d think I’d be better. It’s not really like riding a bike, but kinda.
NYE was super fun. I spent it with this girl. …and a few others I’m not mentioning because oooo elusive.
And now we’re in the second week of January and I don’t even know what to think. I guess I’ll go start another Netflix show, or continue on my second round viewing of Game of Thrones. Because a Khaleesi doesn’t change her
stripes scales whatever. Catch ya on the flipside, fam.
