When I started this blog, I had two goals in mind: Write more and learn WordPress. Once the blog took shape, a third goal came into play: Help people who want to lead a healthy lifestyle in a simple way.
Health is important to me, food is medicine, fitness keeps us young. It is easy to incorporate these things into ones life if they are a priority, and I wanted to help show people it could be done, and how to achieve it.
Since I started the blog, many things have changed in my life. The voids this blog filled were no longer there, or looked different. I have had a lot of life changes that have pushed a blog as a hobby to the side.
This is where I am now.
This isn’t my good-bye post, this is my welcome back post. It has been more than six months since my last post. I have many reasons for getting away from this blog. I would think about it but put it aside, find other things to do, make excuses for not tending to it. The longer I was away the harder it was to get back. I didn’t know where to start. There are many updates I want to make to the site before moving forward with posts. Excuses and lost time were keeping me away from something I enjoy doing. I can’t change that now. I have to make the best of it. This is where I am now.
Yoga is something I really enjoy. I have always been flexible and found relaxation and relief in meditative states. I had one yoga teacher this winter who would repeat the phrase “this is where I am now” during class. That phrase really spoke to me for both my yoga practice and my life.
My life has not gone how I planned or think it should go. I don’t understand why I have been down the path I have, even when I have tried to do everything that is best for me. But, in life and in my blog, I can’t look back at what might have been or wonder why things went the way they did. What’s done is done, I can only make the best of the present and the future. And for the blog, that hopefully means more posts that reflect me and my lifestyle.
I can’t tell you where this blog is heading, but this is where I am now.
