Gathering My Thoughts

Where has the blogging world gone? Where have I gone? I can’t believe the last blog post for me was in July of 2015! What happened to me? What happened to my desire to write and connect with all the great blogging friends I had found through the years.
I only have one explanation. I DUNNO! 
Really I have no idea what happened to my drive and desire to write/blog. I may have run out those creative juices I hoped I was WOWING the blogging world with.  I may have felt I paled in comparison to all those amazing teachers and bloggers that seem to have it all together. It could have been that life just got busy. Or maybe it was the onset of menopause and all the “I hate the world” that entails.nah couldn’t have been that.
Maybe it was that Tuesday nights were now spent glued to the couch watching HGTV and Chip and Joanna! (That’s probably it). Maybe it was because I felt all the great bloggy topics were already out there. Maybe it was because my laptop was a whisper away from going haywire all year.  
Or maybe I just felt no one cared. No one read or responded or commiserated with my woes and tribulations of the teaching/living world.
Well wha wha wha. That is not why I started blogging. I started it for me. For my outlet. Not for your comments or responses. I wrote for me. And so I choose once again to write for me. My one indulgence (ok besides cookies, pie, and chips and dipoh and watching Fixer Upper). Writing.
This past year brought many changes and 2017 is looking to hold a few more. I can hardly wait. They won’t be all bad, nor will they all be good. But they will be changes. Life changing- changes. And I will have the avenue to feed them, mourn them, and celebrate them, here. I will cultivate them and then GATHER what I need to move on, even if it means planting a new way of living, and new horizon to start from.
2017 should be an adventure to say the least! Want to come along for the ride?
My one little word for 2017 is “gather.” I hope you have found yours and it makes your year filled with love, hope and harmony, and that your friends and family always gather around you to make your days complete.  

See you soon Bloggy friends! Except on Tuesdays those are saved for Chip and JoJo! J
