After 3 relatively messy, lonely, boring, and thought provoking years, I am attempting to re-center myself. First step? Taking a year to note what I am thankful for. From there? Live and move on.
This blog started on March 12, 2010, my 34th birthday. You can read the first entry here.
My goal was successful. Minus a few days of posting entries a bit past midnight, I actually DID blog once a day, focusing on something I was thankful for.
My 6 month entry can be read here.
My year of thanks ended on March 12th, 2011, my 35th birthday. Even though it took me a few days past my birthday to write an ending blog post, you can read the last “official” year of thanks post here.
Yet, I missed writing. So I decided to write every Tuesday, calling it “Thankful Tuesdays.” But soon, I found myself writing about not so much what I was thankful for as much as just my life in general: kids, working, dating, cleaning the house, going on trips, books, music, and everything in between. However, despite the fact that I no longer make a special effort to be thankful for each thing, I am–very much so–incredibly thankful for everything I write about. If I wasn’t thankful about it then it would not be in the post.
Alas, “Thankful Tuesdays” have also now gone away. Now I write when I have a chance and try to catch up on where I left off. This makes my posts longer, more difficult to write, but easier for me in the long run to manage.
I hope you enjoy this blog.
P.S. I know I have typos. I’ve learned to let them go. You should too.
P.P.S. I also rarely respond to comments. I know this is terrible blog form, BUT in all honesty, I’m really, really busy. Please forgive me. I do read and appreciate all comments left!
