It’s been a while.
I was chatting with a new friend today, someone I met through the Camp Crucible chat, and showed them this blog.
Which I realized I had not updated since January. That’s been on my mind lately Brother and I were talking about my blog the other day and he lamented how much he missed it.
My new friend, let’s call her M, is a mindfulness fan just like I am. We had this amazing chat about how mindfulness pervades our lives, and the many ways it can be helpful.
That got me thinking and wanting to write here again even more. It’s been a while for many things for me, that I’ve begun to focus on again.
Here’s a few:
Since January I’ve been actively working out and food journaling to get in shape.
I’m headed back to Camp Crucible this month.
I’m open to new connections with other people. I don’t need them, I’m just open to them.
I’m fascinated by the fact that while I’m a different person than I was before, I CAN pick up things from the past and embrace them again. After several months of swimming, I’ve started walking on a treadmill and also hiking, which I’m new to.
There’s this thought I’m struggling to express properly. I’m grateful that while things change, while I change, nothing is ever truly lost. Nothing’s thrown away in the rubbish bin. It’s just put behind me, made part of my past. Those prior experiences, interests, connections, and relationships help inform the me-that-I-am-now, which is really the only me that there is.
I’m grateful for all that’s happened. And all that is happening.
