It is challenging. I have to keep reminding myself it is a period of growth.
It has been too long, way too long, since I visited this space. It’s not that I haven’t wanted to blog. Perhaps it is because I have been super-busy, or at least busy enough, shifting the way I think, and work, and live. Perhaps it was a lack of gumption.
Amongst other things I’ve spent the last several months of 2012 contemplating how I spend my time. I decided as part of the new year to start living more intentionally. I am not a big New Year’s resolution type of person however I do contemplate a “word” of the year and try to apply it in multiple areas of my life. Last year’s word was “embrace” and so I took in stride all that life was throwing at me. Turning 40, learning and accepting physical limitations (while being surprised at myself about the new things I discovered I was able to do–hello running), accepting schedules and the lack thereof, and embracing the creative blocks (there were many) and moments (which were sporadic).
