So, it has been almost a YEAR since I last blogged here. Yowza! A lot has happened over the past year, most of it in my head, and I am ready for some changes and new things to come my way. One of those changes I'm looking forward to is recommitting to some of my personal works, such as this blog. The past year I've been so busy doing things for other people, some of it was rewarding, some of it not so much, but all of it has kept me from documenting my own projects and kids. I think it's time to change that.
To start things off, I have finally come up with my word for 2011! There's only a few months left in this year, but it took this long for my word to come to me. You can see my word and thoughts from 2010 here, but basically it's a focus word for the year. In 2010, my word was "focus" - something I still use as a focus word in my life. Just the other day, it hit me that my 2011 word should be "genuine." A lot of things I've struggled with this year have revolved around trying to be my true self, determining what *I* want and enjoy. A lot of my energy has been focused on my relationships and trying to identify genuine connections so that I can tend to them better. I've reflected a lot on many different things and have realized just how much we let outside entities and third parties influence our relationships with people and it really bothers me. I want to be true to myself and true to others, be genuine through and through. I won't lie, it's not always an easy task, especially for us people-pleasers. As I've sought clarity on my emotional baggage, there have definitely been some upsets along the way.
Genuine: authentic, sincere.
MOVING ON UP....
