Life Happens!

Hello strangers!! It has been a while! I am so happy to be blogging again. This blog is about not letting those unmet goals crush you. The last couple of months I feel like I have been off. I have not had any motivation or inspiration to blog. I felt like I had nothing to offer anyone. Basically, I just sat around and moped and did nothing about it. I felt so lost, I almost gave up.

My last blog was way back in October and that was about goal setting. I set out to run the Virtual Pumpkin Run, which I did and thoroughly enjoyed. They sent me a cute medal in the mail, as well as an awesome shirt! Another goal I had was to blog more. I set out to blog three times in the month of October. Obviously, that did not happen. Nor did it happen in November, or December, or January. Do you see? I was in a slump.

I think a big part of it was the holidays. Not that they got in the way, but they had me in a slump. This was the first Thanksgiving and Christmas without my mom. I felt like I was just going through the motions of the holidays and not really enjoying them. Everything was just different this year. My family and I definitely felt a void. Even my birthday was hard. My husband set up this amazing weekend for us at the beach. He even had my friends surprise me at dinner. But, that one phone call that I expect to get with the voice I took for granted to hear, from the woman who birthed me herself, never came. And with that void, came…nothing. I did not want to do anything extra. When I thought about blogging, I had nothing.

For a while, I felt like a big failure. One more thing I started but did not finish. But after a while, I came to the conclusion that it is ok. Life is hard and sometimes it will throw stuff at us that will slow us down. I also came to the conclusion that I WILL NOT LET IT STOP ME! Blogging is part of my therapy. Getting my feelings typed down helps me to feel, and get things off my chest. Sometimes goals are not me. That is fine. Set them again, and try harder.

So I am back. Hopefully, I can stick with it more and help inspire people as well as get inspired by my readers.

Thank you all for sticking with me, and being patient. I appreciate all of you.

Awaken Your Inner Self,

Carol
