New Year's Resolution


This New Year's Eve was a little different for me. Not sure exactly why, maybe its because I'm getting to the age or stage in life when I'm not taking as many risks or challenges as I used to. Or maybe I'm scared I'll stop taking them altogether if I'm not intentional about it. After all, I have 3 young kids under the age of 5. It's pretty easy to get wrapped up in taking care of them and neglect my passions. And having a newborn makes it more difficult, nursing every three hours really limits how much I can do outside of the house. So, as I pondered this stage in my life on December 31, 2009 I settled on a New Year's resolution. Thanks in part to the recent film Julie & Julia and a note I posted on Facebook a few months back, I decided to create a blog and write something once a week. As you can tell, I'm already behind. Maybe not procrastinating should have been my resolution...hmmmm. Anyway, I'll try and catch up.

This blog is going to be a bit of a hodgepodge. I'll touch on whatever I'm experiencing, contemplating, or find amusing. Mostly, I'll just be pouring out my thoughts as a therapeutic mind dump. I already have a couple topics I've been mulling over for a while. Of course, I'll take suggestions too, if you care for my take on it.

Writing has always been something I enjoy and I think I'm pretty good at. I love crafting words that can make people laugh, cry and/or give pause. But I didn't realized how cathartic (hence the name of the blog) writing can be for me until this past September after a horrific day in motherhood. I''ll be posting the story of that day in the near future (is that cheating if I use that as one of my make-up bogs?). Until then, God Bless.
