On a whim
On a whim, and on the wings of a dream, I am finally (after tossing the idea around in my mind for almost half a year already) starting a blog. It is a lonely place for me, for now at least, but I hope not for long. So here i go........
I guess there is no turning back now. I acknowledge there is a commitment that comes with starting something like this, and now is as good a time as any to be up for it.
Why am I even starting a blog, I wonder, when I always lament that there are not enough hours in a day to do all the things I want, and have, to do. I am going to have even less time now, but I suspect I will be happier. Why should I not be, when I am doing this for myself, my battle-cry of freedom being that I will have the power to control my deadlines anyway. Naturally, those deadlines will be self-imposed. That gives me a measure of peace. In almost the same breath I declare that I do hope to be able to post regularly, given even the busyness of my days, and by doing that get the ball really rolling. I have high hopes that blogging will be a pleasant habit to make.
What will I be writing about? Your guess is as good as mine. We will find out together as we go along. But this early it is safe to say this blog will be like a personal diary of sorts, a baring of thoughts as they spring from both mind and heart. It will be fluid that way, chockfull of random thoughts and musings and, when I get around to making friends with cameras and the way they can work with and for computers and blogs like this, some photos, too. Mainly I am taking this on to record the happy-ness always present in my life, whether I see it clearly or not as it happens. I just know it is there. Always. I hope as you journey along with me (and I hope you will!) you will learn to not only listen, but soak in and enjoy, the shape of your very own happy-ness also, in things both big and small.
As I learn to do all that, hopefully effortlessly so, I will not stop being a mother and wife, I will continue with my dancing, and my work on TV. I will still be joyfully relentless at spinning the many little dreams I always have tucked inside me and as they come true, know that I will be sharing them with you. That should double the portion of joy.
In most everything, I find that enjoying the journey matters almost as much as the destination. That said, wherever you are in your life right now, I do hope you make time to catch some moondust, and welcome some madness. These two will make for even more beautiful days ahead.
