Its the first day of Fall and with all the changing seasons and back to school vibes I am thinking it may be time to move on from writing this blog. I will continue to hang out on the blogs I have been following and have really appreciated all the comments and support over the years.
I'm going to let the blog sit here for a while without new blog posts to see if I want to stop for sure. In the meantime I really want to spend my time on the 4 things I want for myself in this 73rd year of my life.
MY FUTURE SELF WILL THANK ME!
Getting stronger - I keep planning so this year has to be about doing regardless of how tired I am or the weather.
Family time - I am going to fly to see my Berkeley family for a long weekend. It is a great way to get back into flying as the flight from Burbank to Oakland is quite short. In fact the drive to Burbank is almost as long! I'm excited.
We need to plan out other visits with them and soon will have another granddaughter joining the family which makes it even more important.
I'd like to plan a trip to the NE to see my brother, SIL and cousins. It has been a long time.
Engaging activity - Seriously need a new one but don't know what it will be yet!
Engrossing project - Still contemplating what this may be. I used to like to sew, craft, paint, bake, camp, travel and hike. None of those really call to me at this point in life. I really like having a big project requiring planning and months of getting it done. What will it be?
And other life stuff -
We continue to be glad we got the pup and he is now an official small dog park regular. He loves going there because of playing with other dogs and … PEOPLE! Hubby says he makes a point of greeting each human and gets lots of pets that way. Last time he wanted to meet the dogs in the big dog section so hung our at the adjoining fence to touch noses. Yup, he's a party pup.
Good luck! I'm not sure restarting mine was the best choice as I'm having trouble writing anything I haven't thought of before.ReplyDelete
I find myself in the trouble writing boat tooDelete
"To everything there is a season" and I suppose that applies to blogging as well. Your idea of just letting it sit makes the more sense than deleting it all together. Others have taken long breaks and come back to their blog again. You might find you want to do that in time. Sorry to see you go! I've always admired your goal setting way of living.ReplyDelete
Awww, thanks. I'll still be hanging out at your blogDelete
I'll miss your posts. I like reading about the goals you set and admire your attitude to keep growing. I think your honesty about things is admirable. Since we're close in age, I like how you've re-imagined who you are now. I think that's hard for me as I tend to hang on to schedules and such.ReplyDelete
Thank you and I'll still see you at your blog. I spent my career helping people and organizations change so I guess I used and honed my strengths.Delete
Sorry you won't be posting anymore, but there's nothing wrong with "moving on" to things that are more important to you, and surely family, and a dog, and "other life stuff" qualify for that. Just ... don't be a stranger!ReplyDelete
Hitting the pause button on this is the right thing right now but never say never ...Delete
I will miss you Juhli! Wishing you all the best. I do not feel like blogging these days too but, I am thinking it might pass.ReplyDelete
Thanks. Never say never to starting up again!Delete
