Getting Back in the Groove

September 12, 2013 Leave a comment

Well as you can tell I have been away for a bit. I put the blog on a hiatus last fall (a year ago) to work on the format of it all and try to build a blog that better encapsulates who I am.

Well….I obviously haven’t done that. But I assure you, it’s for good reason. The last 365 days of my life have been eventful, to say the least. I’ve moved to a new part of the country. Lived in two different locations. Started a few different careers. Made a few friends. Gotten married a few times. Had a few dozen kids. (Those last two weren’t even remotely true)

However, over the past few months I have been feeling more and more convicted to get this blog back in action. Is it in its structurally and aesthetically finished form? No. But I’d rather get back into writing even if it’s not done for a few reasons. Hopefully writing consistently will be the cattle prod I need to work on the physical structure.

The first reason I want to get this thing rolling again is that I like the IDEA of journalling. But I need accountability in my journaling. Hopefully this blog can meet that need in my own life. ¬†There is a lot happening in my life and writing about it helps me process it or else I blink and 9 months have gone by and I’ve barely processed any of it. Expect me to be transparent. In fact, hold me accountable to do so! I’m not perfect. You’re not perfect. I wanna get real and talk about imperfections, dreams, questions, and anything else life related.

Secondly, I have friends and family across the country who have tried to keep tabs on my life through phone calls, emails, texts, Facebook posts, tweets, etc. Well when I am in my busiest seasons I am admittedly and regretfully terrible at keeping my communication up. Hopefully this can help folks stay in the loop on what’s new with me.

Lastly, I want this to be a place where I can maybe impact other folks’ lives. That sounds somewhat conceited. But I am asking and trusting that God would use my thoughts, experiences, antics, etc. to encourage, challenge, and inspire the folks that would read it.

So who knows what’s going to happen. I have a few posts that I’ve been thinking on over the past few months. Some are about everyday life. Some are about what Jesus is teaching me Some are about music. Some are about social media. Some (most) will probably be stupid and mean nothing to anybody other than myself (and probably my parents because they seem to be interested in whatever I do…which I don’t always get because I don’t think I’m that interesting. But I guess that’s what parents do…).

All of this is to say, that I would love for you to stay tuned. I would love to get your feedback and thoughts on my future posts. Comment on it. Hit me up on the social mediums. Send my a carrier pigeon.  New posts will be coming soon. If you want to hear my thoughts on a certain topic (which would thoroughly surprise me), tell me!

Thanks for reading!!
