I spent today not writing a new post, but instead cleaning up my existing posts, adding new menus to the homepage and learning new things about different blogging services and apps.
In doing this I was reminded of how very far this little blog has come from my first post, when I didn’t even know how to publish it or add pictures. I also saw, as I do everyday, how very much there is to learn.
At times this all gets overwhelming but I have found that there is joy and peace in the doing, and putzing, and trying. This is new for me as I typically love to rush to the finish line. This is different. As much as I wish I could learn it all in a day I can honestly say that I am truly enjoying putting the pieces of this puzzle together. Each day there are teeny, tiny, ant sized things that I figure out and I celebrate at my kitchen table and Fiona looks up from her nap with a look that can only say, “Humans…”
Today I added something new to my site, Speaking Engagements. It is an area that I would like to explore more and one that I have had some experience with right after I was diagnosed.
I am actually one of those people who enjoys speaking to groups and over the course of starting this blog I feel like I have practiced talking to strangers more than I ever have before.
So this new part of the journey is out there now in the great wide open and now I come to you, my readers. If you like what you have been reading, are part of a group, and you think there may be a need for your group to hear some of the messages shared in my posts, please contact me and let’s talk.
I cannot tell you how much I appreciate all of your support. You are the reason this journey is continuing to grow. Thank you my friends.
