It has been so long since I’ve written anything. I can feel my mind turning to jello, losing its muscle tone and flexibility in the areas I used it most. I used to love writing. I loved blogging. I enjoyed the power I had behind a keyboard, sending my words through to my finger tips and then out into the world. I can’t believe I let the self-doubt creep in and muddle my writing; censoring my thoughts before they ever made it out onto the page-but that’s over now.
This past year has been a whirlwind and I have come out the other side as nothing more than a survivor. I spent almost a year away from my husband raising our first daughter by myself while he served our country on the opposite side of the world. We have moved to Korea to be a family again, and now that the dust has set settled and the storm has cleared, I am in an active pursuit to find myself again. Which I know sounds horribly dramatic, by the way, but it is more necessary than I can even tell you. Being a mom is the single most important, rewarding, and exhausting thing I have ever done and will probably ever do which makes finding my center and grounding myself again that much more important.
Basically this is all just a long-winded post to tell you: I’m back! I am going to make a conscious effort to write again, to spend creative quality time with me, to maintain this blog I started two years ago, and to continue cataloguing my life as it has gone from College Life to Army Wife.
