The perfectionist in me was inclined to give up on this blog. A quick glance will show that my blogging career consists of one initial post and then…nothing. It would seem that I birthed a bevy of optimists who have encouraged (badgered) me into giving this another try.
It has been a challenging and bewildering year. We have experienced financial upheaval and have had to re-evaluate our idea of security. For several years, I was striving to “live more simply” without a clear idea of what that meant. This year, I have redefined my goal and am attempting to “live with more intention”. When there isn’t enough of what you need, it is essential to only purchase, consume, and experience what is absolutely necessary. You have to think carefully about what is needed. Overall, this transition is not a bad thing…but certainly not easy.
I’m still not sure that I have anything to say that anyone needs or wants to hear, but I do know that community is important…….especially when all you want to do is climb into bed and pull the covers over your head!
