So while my return to blogging comes with much excitement from my “fans” (i.e. my mom, sister, aunt and Matt) there still remains the lingering questions, “But why did you stop in the first place?”
To be honest, I don’t have a solid answer. When I originally started my blog last March, I was in a much different place than I find myself today. I was working at a job that had sucked the PMA (positive mental attitude for those of you who are new to my blog!) out of me. I was so consumed by my frustrations and unhappiness that I wasn’t able to enjoy the other, wonderful things in my life. I began writing as a way to focus on the good things in my life. After all, even though I was pretty unhappy at work, things could have been a whole lot worse.
Well after getting a new job (arguably the best job ever) my life changed. I now enjoyed the hours that I spent at work, I was busy and I wanted to work hard. And when I got home at 7pm, I was tired. Not to mention – I was also trying to plan my wedding. Needless to say, I had a lot of little things that needed my actual attention, not just my virtual/blogging attention.
Life will continue to be busy but I don’t want to lose my focus. And while my life has recently been more about the wonderful big things rather than “the little things”, I need to find a way to enjoy and appreciate them without getting wrapped up in the craziness and stress that comes along. As my dad told me before the wedding, “just relax, this is going to be fun.”
