I am finding that between writing our Life Tidbits Blog and Business Blog, not to mention the writing deadline we are on to get our Couples book out in late October, that my personal blog is just not thriving!
However, I am not sure I want to give it up. For any of you inclined to get regular tips, tools and reflections about our life and work, please go to the thrive website or links above to sign up for one or both of the above mentioned regular releases.
As for this space, I have various thoughts. What I enjoy about this site is that I am often experimenting with ideas. I don’t spend a great deal of time editing and I like that creative freedom.
I have long struggled with being dyslexic and spelling and grammer are a constant source of angst for me! Here I usually attempt to do general edits but don’t dwell on words or correctness.
I want that to continue. I’d even like to find more just writing and sharing. I love to create more dialogue and hear more from folks following.
Like I just had a most awesome birthday week! It started while at Haven and has carried on for a few days now. I have felt blessed and very grateful that I have the friends and lifestyle I have!
There are a lot of things that are super crazy in the world right now. Like having a President who wants to be like a North Korean dictator and have us stand at attention to him.
I read things like this and I weep. How can this be our President? Yet apparently not only is he the President, he still has a strong following.
That is not even the worse of news. It is so challenging to read about injustice, pain, suffering and places in the world where active warfare is a common happening.
I don’t know how to change the world. I do believe my best effort comes through meeting the differences I face everyday with vulnerability and curiosity.
Maybe that’s why I am intrigued by the Jeep Wrangler. My birthday has offered me a series of Wrangler rides and drives!
The Wrangler is a car that on the one hand is rugged and able to drive off-road – however, with the hardtop off and only the frame holding me in – the vulnerability is much more present.
Sometimes I feel like that. I am relatively tough. I can go off-road and into wild places. But really I am just riding through this life quite exposed, heart- opened, which does mean it’s a bit more easily broken.
I actually believe that’s a good thing. That cracked heart let’s so much more light in!
So it is critical to have regular ways to play, find joy in the simple things like swing sets and rental jeeps! Remembering my friends and being curious about those that are so different in their values and choices.
My current plan is to spend some more time just writing like this and posting.
I’d love to hear from you. What do you think of the new plan? Also, how do you stay sane? Also feel free to share what’s on your mind and heart.
