The last couple of months have been absolutely insane! Between the twins’ birthday party and turning one, a vacation to California and launching a new business, our life has been completely chaotic. We’re finally back home and trying to get settled back into a routine, but pretty much everything is still disorganized and behind schedule.
So, this week is going to be all about getting things back in order, one thing at a time. And today, I decided to start with the blog. I recognize that my blog has really gone by the wayside in the past year. While it has been super important to me to document Linc and Viv’s first year of life. blogging about food has definitely not been a priority. Especially considering that eating well and exercising have unfortunately taken a bit of a backseat to everything else (i.e. 2 babies) for the past year. And in all honestly, while I do want to bring back those things as a priority in my life, it will probably be awhile before blogging about them is a priority.
As I look back over my life since I started blogging (I started with a blog called Brand New Sidewalk), I have had so many changes take places. I’ve started new jobs, left jobs, bought a house, sold a house, built a house, moved about ten times, been through challenges great than anything previous in my life, had babies…and many other things. Through all of these things I have changed so much. I’m still the same person, but as expected my interests have changed and different things have assumed priority in my life. And I’m happy with that. I’m more settled now than I’ve ever been, and I have such a peace about what I’m spending my time on and where my priorities are.
If you still stop by here, I’m sure you’ve noticed these changes. And I’m sure there are many who don’t really stop by any more because of the changes, and I don’t blame you a bit. Some blogs that I read, I read because the subject matter is pertinent to my life, some because I feel inspired by the author, and some because I feel like I’ve gotten to know the person behind the blog and regardless of what they’re writing about, I want to keep in touch. So many of you have continued to read over the past year and a half, even as my content has ebbed and flowed. And all of you over the last few years since I started ChiaSeedMe have been such an encouragement to me by reading and commenting, and I appreciate it so much! My hope is that you will continue to follow along as more changes take place and the focus of this blog continues to shift because I would really love to stay connected.
I’ll be back with a few posts to catch up from the last couple of months as well as more news about the new direction of ChiaSeedMe and where I’m going from here. For me, change is hard and it takes time to get used to, but ultimately it is good. It keeps me on my toes and makes life interesting. With it I find that I push myself more to experience and accomplish new things, which is something I value highly in life. So, I’ll see you soon and hopefully more in the coming weeks:)
