Well hello there!

I’ve certainly been missing in action, haven’t I? Nevertheless, I haven’t forgotten my community here and so I wanted to pop in and say hello and share my word(s) for 2020 with you.

Meaning and Joy

I’ve grown to understand that continual happiness is a human construct and unrealistic. I mean if I were continuously happy, would I even know it? Life is an ebb and flow of emotions and circumstances and the low times are teaching times and the high times are those moments of pure joy. I relish both. I accept both, not in a ‘resigning to the way things are’ kind of way, but in a ‘what am I supposed to learn here’ way. I am content.

And maybe that’s why I haven’t really been here. I’ve been waiting to be me again since my dad’s passing in 2015. And it’s slowing dawning on me that I am me, just a different me. a me that is just as valid as the old me, a me who is more quiet, yet still alive and grateful for so much, and truthfully I really like the new me.

So here’s to 2020 and all its possibilities. May 2020 reveal its awakenings in each of us!
