It's Been 2 YEARS!!!

Wow! It's been 2 years since my last post and I have missed my blog.  So where have I been? What kept me away? The answer is not glamourous or even unique.  It's rather lame and pretty common in today's world.
What kept me away from my blog {that I happen to love!} is……..


Stuff? What does that even mean, right?

I won't bore you with the details but let's just say that I got into a bad habit of saying "Yes" when sometimes I really wanted to say "No".  I said "Yes" because I felt bad saying "No".  I said "Yes" because no one else said "Yes".  

With each "Yes" that I really wanted to say "No" I lost time and energy for the things I enjoyed.  I was saying "No" to me. "No" to the stack of books on my nightstand, to being present in the moment with my family, to traveling, to my blog, and sadly to my treasured Sundays.

I'm starting to reclaim myself and remember what I enjoy and make those things a priority.  I've learned something very important over the last 2 years: I will only live here on earth once and I will not waste anymore days that have been given to me by God on things that don't bring me joy.

I'm very happy that inspiration found me yesterday in the form of 2 blogs shared in my running group  {A Day In Life As I Know It  and  Running Bun }
