A new vision

August 2010

As you know, I recently spent a good deal of time without the luxury of this computer. It was tough not being able to look something up the minute I wanted to know about it. It was hard not to be able to print things I needed for school. Being disconnected from the people out in cyber-space that provide encouragement was difficult.

But, some really fantastic things came from that Internet hiatus as well.

I have a lot of things going on in my head that I've been wanting to blog about. It feels like I need to explain so much before I begin, but the idea of explaining every thought and moment over the past six weeks is daunting and thus prevents me from even starting.

So, I'd like for you to bear with me as I try to share snippets of my recent journey with you. I have some ideas for the future of this blog and in my life that I'd like to share and get going.

To be honest, I've hesitated to start anything here for fear of not following through. I have yet to "schedule" any sort of regular writing time into my life, as much as I want to. I'd love to post daily, but can't figure out where to fit it in on my "paper schedules". So, if I start an idea here and you see it start to fall apart, please accept my sincerest apologies.

Better yet, if you see me start a series or something and not follow through, please don't hesitate to call me out on it. Contact me. Say, "Hey, I thought you were going to share with us how you XYZ. What happened to that?". I need that accountability.

However, my life is far from perfect. So, I also ask that you be patient with me as I attempt to become a "real writer". I have aspirations and goals, but I lack organization and direction. So, I predict several failures along the way. I see a rocky path and lots of stumbles.

All of that to say, I have been making some significant changes in my life recently that I'd like to share here in hopes that it can help someone else out there who struggles with some of the things that I do. Stay tuned for some of my thoughts on:
  • Becoming ME / My transformation project
  • The Proverbs 31 Woman
  • My Vision for the Future
I hope you'll check back often. Now, for me to figure out where to plug in "writing time" on my schedule. Any suggestions from those of you who've already mastered this are more than welcomed!

Until next time ...

  1. I look forward to reading your posts! I used to do my blogging during our afternoon "Quiet Time" but now with the new baby that doesn't always blogging isn't regular at all and I'm ok with that. To everything there is a season... :-)

  2. i'm with you on this ride, friend!

  3. I have the same struggles. I feel obligated to blog more (I mean, what's the point of having a blog if you're not going to write, right?!?!?), but the reality is, I have 4 kids under the age of 8. That's my real life, that takes up all of my time. At least the time that I'm not a tired, drooling, zombie (before 9 am and after 9 pm). Keep plugging away when you can. We're still here, and are struggling right there with you. It's nice to see "real" blogs and not just the "look at me, I'm amazing!" blogs!

  4. Oh thank you so much, Tasha! I do try to be REAL. Funny thing is, I started "doing better" and wanted to blog about it. But, then I started not "doing as well" and wanted to "wait until I had this thing down pat" to blog about it ... then, I realized that I don't need to be PERFECT to write and inspire others. The opposite is true ... when we are REAL, people can RELATE to us and CAN GET inspired by us. :) More to come, I promise.

    Thanks for all the support, ladies!
