two down

I think that my last post may have left some of you with the impression that I am unhappy.  I am not unhappy.  I am happier than I’ve been in years.  Despite this, and due to my getting through the last two years any way I could, my life is somewhat emptier than I want it to be.  The gist of the last post was that I am becoming aware of what I want, I am willing to look my dreams in the face and know that they have not been realized yet.  The longing that I feel now will (hopefully) spur me on to changing the things about my life that are dissatisfying.

I mentioned just now the last two years of my life.  Because of the timing of when I started this blog and the timing of the demise of my marriage, the two are inextricably linked in my mind; rather, this blog and figuring out life after the marriage ended.

It seems strange that I have been blogging for two years.  The time seems to have gone by in the blink of an eye.  On the other hand, my life looked so incredibly different when I started this blog; I lived in a different state and was married with no expectation of that changing.

This blog, and those of you who read and comment has helped me immensely to figure out what it is I’m doing here, and where it is I hope to be.  As my life changes (as I hope it will), I expect that this blog will change as well.  I, for one, am excited to see where life will take us.

  1. I’m so happy for you, finding that quiet space underneath all the busy-ness, where there is space. Delicious, empty space, that with awareness, you can fill consciously with whatever you want.

    Not many people can be still enough long enough to get there.

    You really should read Mel’s new book and join the book tour I’m hosting. Apropos of something.

  2. Happy Blogoversary!

    Lori said it so beautifully.

    These milestones really pass very fast, even if there is a huge amount of water that has flown under the bridge during that time. One of the best things is to read what you wrote in the past, and that would let you know how near or how far you are from that day.

  3. Happy blogoversary! I think blogging is a good metaphor for journeying … that space of waiting, when you’re not quite sure what will come next but are ready to move forward, is such a gift, filled with potential! Here’s wishing you a year full of possibility, and hope, and all of the things that you want to fill your life with.

  4. Happy 2nd blogoversary!

    May there be many more years to come, no matter where this blog is going. Wishing you peace and happiness…

  5. Happy Blogoversary.
    I love that last paragraph. That’s a little of how I’ve been feeling lately too but you describe it so well. Here’s hoping there are so many good things headed your way.
