I’m not sure what has prompted my return to the blogging world today, other than Elizabeth Gilbert screaming in my head to just START! Terri Ann, all of those ideas that have been entrusted to you, do no good if you never do anything with them. So today, I’m starting again. I haven’t decided what this will look like, or how deep I want to go. I’m sure the layout of the blog itself will change a few times.
I now seem to have a little extra time in my day, with all of my kids being in school full-time. There are many things that interest me and things I’d like to do with my time. But the one thing I always go back to, if I’m looking at the big picture, is that I want to write. Will it work best in this blog format? I don’t know. I have some pretty big topics that I want to tackle and those may need a bigger space. I know that this will not be a family update blog, though they will be part of my story. So, we’ll see….
One thing I’ve started today is Ali Edward’s One Little Word class, that actually started in January. Once again, I was drained after the holidays and it wasn’t the right time to start. So, I said that I’d start it in February… Then I said I’d start it for my birthday (June)… and now, almost October, I’m starting.
My word is Learn.
It means to gain or acquire knowledge of or skill in (something) by study, experience, or being taught.
-commit to memory
-become aware of (something) by information or from observation.
My list of things I’d like to learn is long, and I’m sure will continue to grow throughout my life. I was gathering things and books in my house that are either specific to what I’d like to learn or represent it. Some are skills and some are personal and spiritual development.
The next few days will be spent pondering Ali’s prompts and answering the questions that will help me to find out what Learn will actually look like to me, at least for this month.
I hope you are all well and am looking forward to seeing where this all goes.
