Today is a great day. It feels like New Year’s Day even though it’s already the second week of February. I’ll tell you why.
Blogging more is one of my 2014 resolutions. As I am afraid that you may have noticed, it’s not happening…yet.
2013 ended in good standing. Quiet get-together at home with friends. Bubbles, fireworks, grapes, wishful hugs and kisses.
2014 started with the most contrasting mix of productivity and lethargy. Excited about being devoted to an amazing professional project indeed, even strength training every day. On the other hand, not working on “Now That I Am in My Thirties” at all. Not writing, not blogging, not doing research, not reading. Nothing at all. Everything was about work again. There I was, breaking my own rules, not making the effort to look for the sought-after balance that I had promised myself.
Mid-January, fun came in all different forms: family and friends joined us for the most special corporate extravaganza: My husband’s company anniversary and annual beach week. What a blast! Perfect dose of excitement and exhaustion!
And then everybody left and I was officially back to work. In the meantime, I never stopped thinking about this blog and about the book. Fighting to convince myself that I was not hiding due to the fact that I have not finished the book. Wondering if you even noticed. Wishing you were not missing me. Fantasizing about how to surprise you the next time.
I didn’t know where to start. I added new quotes to our Inspiration section and posted new articles on our social networks. Without trying, I managed to disable the Live Twitter Feed on the blog and haven’t been able to fix it. I was afraid of making grammar, spelling and technical mistakes. Feeling scared about losing credibility in front of you. I was letting fear take control of my persona, and every day passing, it was just getting worse.
Anyway, you kept visiting, following, liking and commenting on our pages. I can’t thank you enough for that. Thank you for hanging in there. Thanks to YOU I realized it’s not fair to hide and stop sharing our gifts, even though we know they are not perfect. So I thank you.
Now you know why this is my first blog post of the year. How do you like it?
