Time has a wonderful way of showing us what really matters.
I’ve admitted before that I am a bit of a quitter. I can trace it all the way back to elementary school. I remember my mom taking me to try out gymnastics. I was excited about trying something new, though not thrilled it was during Sabrina the Teenage Witch, but was ready to miss an episode for a new hobby. All was well until the coach put me in butterfly position and then proceeded to push my knees down. It was so painful that I cried a bit and then refused to participate the rest of the hour. Needless to say I never went back.
Saying goodbye has become a bit of an expectation around here. I find some reason why I shouldn’t continue this blog, fixate on it, create a new blog to start over with, then write a farewell post… since you’re reading this, you are most likely one of my trusty blogging buddies, so I thought it might be fun to go back and find all of my goodbye posts:
8/28/17 | This is Goodbye
4/27/16 | Last Post
12/13/15 | A Clean Slate Is What I Need.
It appears to be a yearly thing – I swear that was not intentional – but following suit, I’m back just in time for the new year. And by back, I mean back, for real… or until the next time I need some time away. I like that quote by Margaret Peters about time showing us what matters. That totally and completely describes my yearly battle and why I always return back to where it all began.
Sometimes when I’m feeling nostalgic, feeling down, or feeling really happy, I’ll find myself searching for this blog and taking a stroll down memory lane. Sometimes I’ll read from beginning to end and sometimes I start with the most recent and work my back. Occasionally I’ll search for a specific person or time, but it never fails to help me find whatever I didn’t know I was looking for.
So here I am, back for another go around, because anyone who knows me knows I can’t stay away for long. So welcome to the revival, I’m glad you’re here.
