I told Hun that I think I’ve lost my mind. Why?, he asks. Well, because I found two other things that sound fun out here in the blog world and I think I’m going to do them. No additional information given. I mean, I did get a little catching up done after finishing out November NaBloPoMo . But, challenges I like. I’m feeling a little re-invigorated right now, this evening. I do think I’ll only do one challenge right now though. Sometimes it’s hard enough getting one post done a day, let alone two.
By the way, it wasn’t much after this conversation I answered Hun’s question, “Why won’t you let him (Baby) play with this?” by saying that he’d make a mess! Yep, my sanity is gone if the one thing Baby has been pining over for weeks (DVDs in a basket) seems to be the end of cleanliness, when I’m constantly picking up other things he’s spread about the room and under the ottoman.
I digress. Here is my (late) post for Day 1 of Reverb 2013 with Elephant Journal.
1 word for 2013: Change.
Many changes came about for me in 2013. I entered the year pregnant, which was a change. Baby was born back in April, another change. I was instantly an active mother, more change. A few weeks later, I quit my job to be a full-time stay-at-home mother, more change. Oh and I suddenly (in another moment of insanity) decided I could become a blogger, so I started my blogventure. Yes, that was a change. It was even a change just to begin commenting on others’ blogs, then to go and start my own. All of these changes have taken a toll on me. I’ve had a difficult time reorganizing myself amongst all these changes. I started to come out on the other side a bit a few weeks back, but I’m still in the process of reorganizing myself. If I was asked how I feel about it all, I still can’t definitively say. I’m still growing.
1 word for 2014: Calm.
I wish for myself more calm. I wish for more moments of clarity and less of frustration and confusion and doubt. I hope to keep my gratitude in the forefront. That act alone will bring me more peace, hence calm.
By the way, the purpose of Reverb 2013 is to take a self-reflecting look at “the year that has passed and set intentions for the coming year”. Come along on the ride, join me in taking a look at myself through 2013 as I prepare to head into 2014.
