Things have been quiet around here and I’m finally feeling quieter inside.
It’s not that I haven’t had anything to say, instead, I think I lacked the desire to say what I was thinking or feeling out loud.
2012 was a difficult year. And I just wasn’t able to share those difficulties here, no matter how much strength I receive from those who visit and comment. Instead I leaned on the people closest to me, and tried to remain in touch with my online friends through Instagram, Facebook and, on the rarest of occasions, Twitter.
I’m still not sure how much of me will inhabit this space in 2013. I do miss being here. But I’ve so enjoyed living my life without the added worry of how I would document it.
I know I’ve discussed the difficulties I have balancing the various aspects of my family, career and personal life. I feel like I’m constantly searching for a way to fit everything together neatly, and do all things perfectly. Although, I realize perfection in all things is impossible, I can’t help but want to find a way to live a better, fuller life. Either way, I’m hoping to continue balancing my life as I have these past few months and also work on adding in new aspects that bring me joy.
This post is a start. I’m hoping it’ll be one of many in 2013.
Here’s to a more joyful new year!
