I'm Alive! I'm Alive!
I have not vanished. I have not left the building. I have not run off to a deserted island, even though, I may have wanted to at one time or another.
Sometimes, when life gets hectic and we start to lose our footings, all we really need is rest. Sometimes that rest comes as a little gift, a break that we didn't plan for, or even recognize until after it was well underway. A set back, or a sickness or a broken down car that leaves us stranded at home. Gifts of rest in disguise, you know?
I have missed this writing place, but truth be told, I have been able to spend more time writing in other places. I have ramped up my journaling. I have emailed friends and I have even hand-written a few note cards to friends that needed to be encouraged. I have been reading more books and searching more blogs and I have been spending time thinking about where I want to go with this little blog of mine. I love that this project is mine and that it can flow and ebb into whatever form I choose to best fit who I am and what I want to say in this moment.
One thing I know about resting is that it crucial for revival. It is calming. It brings healing. It is mind-clearing and it just makes you feel better on the other side of it! This is where I am. Ready to hop up from a nice, long, cozy slumber and start afresh.
Do you need rest?
Where do you go to get revived...for blogging....for life?
