This week has seemed strange. I have been tying up a lot of loose ends, organizing and finishing up many things that have been hanging for a while. All bits and pieces.
It seems that I have been really busy, but have little to talk about or to show here.
I suppose that happens though, as every day can’t be remarkable. By definition, the term remarkable means worthy of notice, unusual or extraordinary. I can’t really say that anything here has been that. Just busy day-to-day things.
I have been writing my blog here for three years now almost on a daily basis. What started as a way to help my business has evolved into so much more than that. From it I have gained support, advice and most importantly – many wonderful friends.
There are days occasionally when I miss writing and I do miss the interaction with you all, too. I admit it is nice when you miss me when I don’t write. It makes me feel like I am contributing to your day in a good way when I post here each morning. You all add a great deal to my life.
Right now in my life there are a couple of things going on though that I need to look after and think about. Just some sorting, I suppose. Perhaps I just need to take some time to watch the trees grow and the river flow by – even if it is only for a little bit. I am not really going anywhere, but rather just taking time to ‘be’ – without expectations or commitments. Those of you who know me know that these lulls don’t happen often in my life. It just seems that all the stars have lined up that way and that instead of pushing things, I need to stop and listen and allow things to take their course.
Caring for ourselves this way is probably the most important thing we can do. Not only for ourselves, but for all of those around us. For when we find our own inner peace is when we are able to be our best to others.
I don’t think I will be gone long. I have things that I want to do and ideas that I want to share. I just need some time in between to take a breath and think. I know you will all understand. :)
I’ll still be lurking around my computer and commenting and such -but perhaps not so formally or as often as I normally do. I hope to find some time to get to the beach – as it is already the latter part of July and I have yet to go. We’ll have to just see.
I wish you all a wonderful weekend. I hope you have fun and take time to enjoy the days as they come. Yesterdays come much too quickly.
I’ll be back soon.
This time, like all times, is a very good one, if we but know what to do with it. – Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803 – 1882)
