Two and a half

How much can change in a week? A month? A year? How about 2 ½ years? That’s how long it’s been since I’ve been here.

I’d forgotten how cathartic writing has always been for me.  I’d forgotten why I started writing in the first place. 

Why did I stop?

The best and simplest answer is that I was unsure.  I was unsure of where this blog was heading.  I was unsure of where the line is.  The line of my family’s privacy, the line of my own willingness to show my inner self to anyone who wanted to see.  I considered starting up under a new name – with anonymity.  I thought about creating a niche blog – something dedicated to one thing – popular examples would be fitness, mom blog, cooking blog.. etc.  That’s not me though.   I don’t want to write about just one thing or have everything revolve around one aspect of my life. 

I have, after much consideration, come to the conclusion that this blog is less of an article and more of a story – and I’m OK with that.

I was looking for a particular post and got sifting through my old stuff and started to feel nostalgic.  I liked reading things as I had written them.  Even if I don’t always agree with my former self – it’s fun to read later.  I can only imagine had I kept writing throughout the last 2 ½ years how many more things I would have to look back on.  I’m excited to get going again.  I’m excited to find that creative outlet again. 
I’m sure I’ll be making some changes – but change is good. Change is cleansing.
