2017 life

Hey guys do any of you remember when I said I was going to blog part 2 about my trip to New Zealand? Yeah, neither do I.

I feel like it’s time for some changes around here. I really miss writing on this blog regularly. I miss reading everyone’s work and everyone’s comments and all that jazz. The truth is I haven’t been writing too much poetry lately, nor reading it. It’s funny because when I moved to Toronto a while back I didn’t think my life would change that much other than I’d just be in a new location. Wow, was I wrong.

New location, new jobs, new living situation, new people, new friends, new hobbies, new weather. All of these things force massive change on you whether you’re noticing or not. Old habits are ripped out from under your feet and replaced with new ones. Moving here was the best decision I ever made but I definitely left a few pieces of myself behind, and they are pieces that I miss. I really want to get back into writing and sharing my poetry this year. I’ve heard a lot of talk from people saying 2016 was a terrible year and they were glad when it was over, but to me 2016 was one of the best. I faced some of the most intense challenges of my life. I grew so much.

I’m starting a new job this year, one much more in line with my authentic self and I’m excited about it. I want to learn more, do more, grow more… make a contribution, you know? 2017 feels like a very important year for some reason. More so than previous years. It’s just a feeling, of course, but I’m rolling with it.

Okay before I get too into 2017 I do want to share one particular 2016 highlight with all of you…

skydive2016-11-24-at-11-46-02-pm

I went sky diving!! That’s me! 16 500 feet in the air! I never ever in a million years ever thought I’d be brave enough to go skydiving, but look! There. I did it. Like it ain’t no thang.

Hope you’re all well and enjoying 2017 so far! 🙂 Here’s to a great year.

xoxo

  1. Congratulations Red! I hope you do blog more–poetry, etc. Your blog doesn’t have to be a roaring bonfire of passion/pain. Maybe on some days it can be an imperceptible breath that causes an ember to glow a little brighter. Sometimes even a one-liner about something nice, something amusing that happened during the day is all your blog needs. (I should take my own advice.) Write On Kiddo!

  2. Pretty woman, you’ve made a change and that’s a good thing. Open your eyes and your heart. Thanks for stopping by to read my blog today. At least I hope you read it. And if you enjoy reading, I’m the author of 25 books, the latest release is Chef’s Surprise- the journey of a runaway who climbs the ladder of success in the world of Male Chef’s in New York City. Romantic and fun, you will love the heroine.
