Things That Make Me Go "Mmmmmmm"

A year and a half ago, I all but walked away from this blog. I metaphorically threw myself out a window and had very little to say. So, that being the case, why bother writing it all down?

It has taken me all this time to come to grips with the realization that I didn't like the person I had become. Now, think about that.

How do you live with someone you don't like and can't escape from?! I am who I am. Or am I?

Was I always that way or did I evolve? Can I revolve? Can I reinvent or recreate or merely tap into all that I want to be and quietly walk away from the rest? I think focussing on that 'quietly' part is going to take some doing, some real discipline.

I have also learned that everything I fear comes to me. Isn't that interesting?

Well, on my road to 100 Happy Days I am finding that I can refocus my attention to all the things out there in the vast world that makes me happy and by doing this, I can, well..... not ignore but also and more importantly not embrace that which makes me angry. I learned that I cannot change those things. They have to change themselves, if they want to.

I WANT to. I want to go back to writing about the things that made me start this blog: Cats and Quilts and the odd occasional chicken. Toss in growing vegetables and the odd bread recipe to two and you've got a pretty happy person who loves being alive.

This is me, today:

Bring on the CAAAATS and QUILLLLTS! I miss your voice and getting little glimpses into your world, so I hope that if coming back to blogging makes you happy, that you will continue to share.
