It has been more than a minute!
For now, I am back. I say that because I haven't been inspired to write in ages (since July!) (always a warning bell) and I am not sure that this particular blog will keep on keepin' on. But, I do know a few things.
I've got plenty to share, and I need to project my creative energy once again.
So, I am starting with... #choosejoy2016.
I've decided it is my tag-line; not especially clever or such, but it is an acknowledgment to what I am going to do in this, my to-be-40-year - choose joy. Choose good, choose happy, choose...you get it.
Here's the thing - and what prompted me to post this. Just start.
I haven't been inspired, I haven't felt like writing, but...getting started, and for me in recent years, keeping started is the key.
Make plans. Keep plans. Be the oui in the s'il vous plait, and mean it.
Put the running shoes on; go for a run.
Buy the pretty veggies; make a salad.
Also- try skinny jeans even if you think they cannot be your thing.
This all sounds very basic, but when you come from a place where you've pretty much gone through the motions of your life, and you realize it doesn't have to be that way - you might have to remind yourself to do the basics.
So when you see that person and your heart isn't broken any longer, or you reach out to that friend from a past life who's delighted to hear from you, or you think of a random reason to send someone snail mail, or...
2016 - it's my year to do it. Don't know yet what "it" will entail - but it will be great, and a new year for this girl.
