Hello!! I thought I would stray from my book posts and do a quick post to wish myself a happy 2 years of blogging (coinciding with Happy New Year – 2015!) We’ve had some ups and downs, some good times and bad, lots of posts at times and few (or none) at others, but I really enjoy have MDP as an outlet. And as I tell people when I do discuss my blog, I blog for free books (mostly). I started with much more of a vision (you can see my very first post here) and at times go back to that, but lately I’ve been mostly focused on books. Not saying this will be true for the future either, there will probably always be books as I can never see a time in my life that doesn’t include reading, but as life goes, I’m more motivated at certain times to review activities, or a song/bible verse that moves me. But you’ll just have to stay tuned and keep reading to see! (But really I have no idea!)
Last year I did a post for my 1 year blogiversary. As I re-read this today – I think my update on finding my purpose (or actually lack-there-of) still holds 100% true for me today. Each day I try to be the best me I can be; for my kids, my husband, my dog, and most of all my Creator. I try not to beat myself up over the bad moments and turn to Him for guidance on how to get by. I’m FAR from perfect on this, but find comfort in knowing that I’m not expected to be and as long as I ask, I am forgiven and can mess up again and again! And also I need to be content where I am and keep my ears/eyes/heart open for further direction!
Last year I wanted to be more INTENTIONAL. This year took us in a direction I never would have imagined when I wrote my post last year (to Cleveland, Ohio!!??) but I felt somewhat at peace in our transition and was very intentional in putting myself out there, out of my comfort zone at times, but to listen and think through what we were/are doing. So this year to piggyback on continuing to be intentional, the word I have chosen is FOLLOW-UP.
