Yes, I have been quite quiet over here for the past few months… for many reasons. I do have to say it was refreshing to just live not feel the need/responsibility to blog “x” amount of times a week. Granted, this defeated the purpose of a gaining “following” but I’m perfectly okay with that. Last year I spread myself thin… lots of new ventures, new relationships, and new opportunities through Julia’s Poppies, Yours is the Earth and Homespun ATL. Exciting, exciting stuff, but change and honing is now needed. Practicing discipline, and being protective of those priorities I value in life are on the forefront of my mind.
It’s true that a new year doesn’t bring instant change (even though I always seem to convince myself it does!). However, it is a great time to hit refresh. This morning I was reminded that each day is a fresh start, full of new mercy, blessings, and gifts. The circumstances may not change from day-to-day, but thankfully the hope I cling to is eternal and not temporal.
I’m so grateful for what is on my plate, though some courses are easier to pallet than others. As a friend reminded me,
It tastes so much sweeter when we know it is intended for us, and for a purpose.
