– But not a new blog! I have been trying to fix the layout but I just have to succumb to the fact that I have no idea what I am doing! I will however spend some more time on it, to see if I can manage to “get it right”.
So this new start, on this new year, what will it mean to this, not new, blog?
I am hoping for a revival, some new life and energy to keep it going, because I do enjoy writing. My very first entry, in November 2013, said about the same thing; I need to write! No matter if no one reads what I write, I still feel the urge to write it down. I quote myself: “These are the subjects I would like to address in my blog this time around: trying to live life to its fullest, minimalism, traveling and education (focusing on my own kids).”
I didn’t anticipate the fact that my feelings towards teaching would take over my whole being, and that I would go from feeling hopeful and happy, to feeling so down that everything went black. And I don’t want to go there again!
I want this blog to be about, well, hope, I guess. And things that make me happy! My (new) job may or may not be one of those things, but I have promised myself to not become my work again, but to be a person with a job. I will be myself first, a mother and a wife at the same time, I will be a reader, a minimalist, a traveler, a friend, a creative person, but I will not be my job.
So this year I will try harder to actually share positive aspects of life, because I did travel last year, and I did have a great year, but I am not sure I got it down in writing! And this is what you might expect of my blog this year: posts about books, about being creative, about travelling, about focusing on my own kids and their growing up, about minimalism, about love. And I promise to try and add more pictures, because I love pictures!
If, or when, I stray, please let me know and I will do my very best to find my way “home” again.
