I know I don’t write on here very often, and that’s because put very simply, often there are a lot of things taking up a lot of my time right now. I’m the mother of a 3 year old and a 21-month old, and they would take up a lot of time even if I wasn’t married to a resident. I also am continuing on some research endeavors that I will share with you later.
However, even if I’m not the most frequent blogger, I am going to try to pick up my writing again. It naturally took a backseat as we started our family and moved across the country a couple of times. Even though we are paying a ridiculous amount of money for east coast rent right now, which doesn’t really leave any money left over for the girls and I to do anything while my husband is at work, there is an amazing view from our apartment: the skyline of New York City. For me, it symbolizes my dream of becoming a writer that developed when I was still in grade school. Although we are far enough away that even the tallest buildings still appear tiny, it is a reminder to me to share some of the beautiful wisdom I have acquired throughout some of my greatest challenges, like overcoming an eating disorder, a long-term destructive relationship, and my own previous self-defeating insecurities. Never in my life did I think I would be either in my physical location or in the state of mind and ability that I am in right now, and yet it has happened.
I’m going to do more writing, even if it’s not necessarily on my blog. What’s in the back of your mind that you’ve always wanted to do? What reminders are you receiving about the passion or desires you have? If there’s something that’s been prodding you to pay more attention or make some changes, do that first thing you need to do, before you forget.
I hope you’ll start to see a new skyline for yourself, too!
