[learning to live a perfectly imperfect life]

Lost and Found


It's such a tough thing.

In life, that is.

(Although, it is, indeed, also difficult to stand on one foot for a long period of time.)

My life is a bit off balance these days.

When I began my blog over a year ago, I wrote a short description: "Come along and learn with me -- about parenting, photography, Down syndrome, step-parenting, home improvement, volunteering, child development, blogging, disability advocacy, and balancing life without losing yourself."

Have you ever felt like you've "lost yourself?"

I've been feeling a bit that way lately.

(Maybe the problem is that I was trying to balance life while standing on one foot... hmmm... that must have been what did me in.)

I do miss my frequent blogging. Badly. It's kind of therapeutic for me. (And "Wordless Wednesdays" just don't provide quite the same therapy for me than writing about kids who stack logs to make houses for birds or boys who give up their pacis... yes, it's an unconventional therapy, I'll admit...)

But blogging is what's taken a backseat these days.

Just know that it'll be kind of quiet here on my blog for a bit...

you know, until I find myself again.

But don't worry.

It won't be long.

I'm pretty good at finding things.

I totally kwym! Things have been a wee bit off balance here as well. I picked a great time to start a 365, lol!

Looking forward to you getting back to blogging more often!

Hi Carin,

I've lost myself a little bit as well! It happens...and we do all find ourselves again at one point.

Made my blog private again for personal reasons. If you would like access, send me your e-mail address to janebaker7 at hotmail dot com.

I did the same thing... sorta just tried to make sure I did the Wordless Wednesday, but adding a few words here and there. My writing is often motivated by photos, which means if I take less photos, I tend to have less to say. I love reading our posts and if that means you need to pause to store up some good stuff, no worries... we'll be here when you're ready. :-)

I hope you are okay! My blog has been lacking greatly recently too. We are just so busy, I have had other focuses lately. Trying to rev it up again. :)
