Hello everybody. This is the first time since Mikey was born that I have even thought of updating my blog (7 months, three days). Although, I have been thinking lately that I certainly miss it. Maybe I just need to make it bit more of a priority as you all know I really enjoy writing.
Today, surfing Facebook, one of my friends posted this quote:
“Be brave enough to live creatively. The creative is the place where no one else has ever been. You have to leave the city of your comfort and go into the wilderness of your intuition. You can’t get there by bus, only by hard work, risking and by not quite knowing what you’re doing. What you’ll discover will be wonderful: yourself.”- Alan Alda
Maybe that is just it. When I was writing on my blog, I was certainly more happy. When I read my blog, I really enjoy remembering my stories. I found my voice with this blog. I really did discover myself. And now, since so many things have changed in my life, I believe I need–more than ever–to discover myself again. As a mother. As an expat. As — well — me.
Here’s to exercising the creative muscles again!
It is sure nice to see you back on your blog Jennifer. ! You do write some very interesting stories! With two children – maybe you can write about them too.
