Hello my dears,
How are you? This has been such a unprecedented time for the world- with still much uncertainty to come but for me taking it day by day is helping and using this time of unemployment/reset to reflect.
I started this blog to keep in touch with folks as I moved across the USA. I think originally I wanted it to be about my travels and experiences out west here to show you all. It has morphed somewhat into different thoughts/themes but that is the essence of who I am; I shift and change and enjoy many things.
I didn’t start a blog to gain fame but help keep in touch and share some of my wisdom and my writer’s voice. Reflecting back on my past posts, I think there is a certain rhythm or message I am conveying in each one. I may not be the best writer!(who really is though? Okay JK Rowling is up there.) However, it has been very therapeutic for me to journal and share my thoughts and adventures.
Since this is a reflection time for me, I wanted to reach out to you readers/dear ones, would you like me to continue in this way? I know my adventure posts have slowed down with Covid-19 and technology issues(I can’t seem to get my latest photos off my Iphone to share with you adventures from many months.) I am getting through by being present and grateful in this uncertain time and to reflect more on on my life, and what I do want to change or aspire to. I have been going through self-love and purpose coaching which has been very eye-opening as well. I am learning more about my voice and what I want to say to the world.
Ian and I have been in Oregon now over 2 years and it has been challenging for sure, especially with trying to find jobs we enjoy/that give us meaning and making new friends. With my military like upbringing as a child to adult life, I always have this question at the back of my mind, “How long will I be here?” I think it allows me to explore more of the place I am in, but I also detach from settling in too much.
I would like to continue to explore the Pacific NW once it is deemed safe to do so and more of Western USA and Canada. I hope we can all resume traveling soon! I have had a couple interviews for a park job, so cross your fingers! It has been tough since quitting my corporate position to feeling very stuck on my next step; but I currently see the unstuck realizations happening now. But I am here with my strong, calm, quiet, and comforting voice to say, “I am here, I want to help this world and connect us all.” What voice do you want to share with the world? Please share your voices with me and if you like me to continue this blog! PS I am still working on typing up my poem book and attending a Transformational Book Breakthrough Quest with Christine Kloser right now that is motivating me to write this blog and reflect more on my audience as well.
I love you and I am a big blog fan of other bloggers and blogs, and I appreciate you reading my personal one that like I said is not destined for fame/fortune, but I am grateful and proud I put my words out there and achieved my dream of having a blog and sharing some of my wisdom through my writer’s voice.
