As is obviously evident, I took some time off from blogging. There were some other things going on, and blogging just wasn't at the top of my list. More importantly, however, my heart just hasn't been in it. I know it's important to evaluate or re-evaluate your goals and where you are in the scheme of your life's plan. My life's plan is WAY off track, and I've spent some time thnking about where I am going and where this blog fits into that plan.
It's all going to work out, just some forks in the road, and I know deep down in my being that I'm not doing the best I can do for myself right now.
I haven't been motivated for awhile now to do much of anything, except just get by, and that's got to stop. I am not going to minimize the impact that Zachary's death has had on my motivation. I know that I am still grieving — for me, my pets are my kids, they are part of my family, of my every day life. I still miss Zachary very much. It's going to take some time, but I have to do something to move forward to get out of this rut/funk I've been in.
Reading some posts by other very successful bloggers: Zen Habits and Chris Guillebeau who offer some invaluable tips on how to really get what you want out of life, fulfilling your dreams but also giving back. Really powerful stuff.
And stuff I need to be incorporating into my daily life instead of getting caught up in the inertia of what other people are doing (or not doing).
So, getting busy starting today with renewed commitments to live my best life.
