One of my new year resolutions for 2015 is to start blogging again.
In May 2013 I lost my stepdad. His life came to a sudden end at the hand of insidious violence. A collective sense of shock and disbelief silenced our lives and the subsequent chaos as other individuals in the family reacted to the death pushed me to an end - of sorts - as my world turned inside out and slowly restarted, one cylinder at a time.
In the last year and a half I moved my family South by a few cities, and then moved a second time to a nicer home. I started a new relationship. I left a support network that had sustained me for a solid year through weekly meetings. I joined a new Church. I started a new job. I took a family vacation to Sun Mountain Lodge. I started writing a book. I found a live-in nanny, had to fire her, and recruited an awesome new one. Many things have changed, a lot of dust has settled and I am eager to embrace the new year, and the new experiences it will bring!
My other two resolutions are to live on a written budget and hit the gym (or its equivalent) no less than 3 times a week.
And laugh! I want to harvest moments of joy and fun as much as I can J
