Committing to myself



27 January 2010 – that was the day I published my first ever blog.  Since then I’ve only managed 311 and I wonder why.  Writing, much like running, clears my head.  It makes sense of everything that floats around in there trying to connect with something else and spark an avalanche of new thoughts and ideas.   In itself that spark is usually a good thing, but when it goes wrong, well, it goes wrong big time.

For those of you who have been following me for a while, you’ll know that I have on several occasions committed to write every day.  You’ll also know that that didn’t quite happen.  Strange fact about me: the happier I am, the less I write.  I still want to, but I don’t.  As the lack of posts in the past 2 and a half years suggest, I’m very happy.  Writing still, though, is my voice.  So, as we approach another new year, I’ve been thinking: about me, where I am, where I’m going, the people I love and everything that the new year holds for us.

{At this point I realized that I’ve already said all of this.  Back in March.  OK, then}

I am not making another commitment that I’m not going to stick to.  Just saying that the next year I want to focus on me; make sense of me and what goes on in my head; be a better person not only for myself but for all those who love me too; grow.

In 2019 I want to grow – spiritually, emotionally, mentally (not physically please!), and I’ll do it by giving in to a God given talent and developing that.

Hopefully I’ll get the blog to 681 posts by 2020 haha!  Let’s see where this goes

I am a free spirit born in the Free State, 20 years to late. I am Ying and Yang. I am the girl next door who prefers daisies and peace rallies, but can just as easily rock at a rally. I love all things Latin and am sure that in my previous life (if that existed) I was Spanish. The dark side of me, however, tells me that I lived in Mother Russia. I am an over thinker par excellence , in constant search of answers to all things that makes us human. What we do and, more importantly, why we do it. I hope you enjoy my rambles and would love to hear from you. If you like it here, please come back, comment and share. If not, let me not waste another second of your time. All I ask is that you respect my space, be constructive and leave negativity at the door. There is enough of that in this world we live in and yes, in my head too sometimes. Not everything here will be liked or agreed with. Some of it will be downright rude, crazy and straight forward. Not everyone will like me and what goes on in my head, but this is my life and my space. Enjoy the ride

One thought on “Committing to myself”

  1. “the happier I am, the less I write” That’s true about me, too! I keep a journal and I noticed that I fill more pages on days I feel down.

Say something, you know you want to!
