Oh my. It has been 284 days since I visited this website with the intention to write. Well, at least according to the half written post I had waiting for me in the ‘draft’ folder.
Better yet, it has been 349 days since I actually wrote a post and hit ‘publish.’
I miss it. I miss blogging. The thing is even though I’ve failed to be an active blogger in a year (more like years) it’s still been present in my life. Two of my real life best friends were formed through blogging. I ‘met’ Ricci and Rebekah years ago online and to this day we still talk daily and take trips and/or visit each other as often as we can. Vegas in for NYE 2015, Nashville in July and Little Rock coming up in November! Ever since the girls visited me in Nashville this summer I’ve been pining to start blogging again. For whatever reason, it has taken me another 2 months to sit down at the computer and just start typing.
I don’t know why I’ve had such a hard time starting up again because I as I sit here on this Sunday afternoon – it just feels so natural. I don’t feel like I ever left this Party of One. Although, trying to remember my passwords to log in here and a few other sites proved extremely challenging but that’s what I get.
This past year has probably been the biggest year of my life. In October 2015 I packed everything up – okay, I’m not going to lie…movers did a lot of the packing (company provided relocation is the way to move, y’all) – and brought myself to Nashville, TN. Moving here I knew all of 3 people. I had visited a handful of times but there was no real reason to choose this place. I was desperately searching for a new job last fall and decided to start looking all over the Southeast and not just in Georgia. Somehow everything aligned and I accepted a job just outside of Nashville, TN.
As I sit here in this little coffee shop that I walked to from my perfectly teeny apartment – my heart swells. I am so happy. Not happy as in I’ve got this figured out and I have everything I want and everything is perfect. No, of course not. Things aren’t perfect. Sometimes I still question my decision and I often wonder ‘what are you doing?!’ but I am so happy and it’s a different type of happiness than I have ever felt before.
There are still a lot of areas I’d like to grow and develop in. There are changes that I want to make in the upcoming year. I’m not done growing, but, this year has me off to a really great start of becoming just who I want to be.
I could probably very easily sit here and type the details of the past 12 months in one sitting and make this one run on of a blog post, but, don’t worry I’m not going to. Instead, I’m going to take a stab at this ‘blogging’ thing again…maybe writing more than 1 post per year 🙂 There is so much that has happened, new things seen and done…there is so much life that has been lived and I can’t wait to share it all with you.
