Wow. I can’t believe how quickly August has flown by…! We’re already starting the school season (for many of us) and finding the rhythm that we thought we had lost over the summer break.
For some of us this is the time for some “new beginnings” and for others it’s just the same ol’ same ol’… just another part of the calendar year.
For myself I try to see every moment as a new opportunity to start something new even if the “something new” is still a bit of the old. Call it an attitude perspective or just semantics perhaps but it keeps me thinking fresh and keeps me moving forward.
Sometimes that’s really the character and quality of our blogs, you know? At times we see our blogs as all shiny and new and at other times (or perhaps at the same time) we see them as the same-old-thing-but-a-different-day; our challenge is to see our blogs in a much bigger context; our challenge is to see our blogs as vehicles for life-giving information.
You may not think that people are reading your blog (or that not enough people are reading your blog) but it’s exactly where it’s supposed to be, this time, on this day, at this very hour. Be peacefully-unsatisfied, if that makes sense, knowing that it’s ok where you are but you know where you’re headed and what you hope it will be.
I’m peacefully-unsatisfied with my blog, just as I am with life and my two daughters, both of whom are growing up way too fast. My oldest just started a new preschool yesterday and I snapped a few pics before I let her go – I’m at peace that she’s maturing well and growing into a beautiful girl and woman but unsatisfied with how fast it’s happening!
I hope you can come to terms with this perspective and rejoice in it – besides, there’s not much we can do anyways, right? Let’s press on and build amazing blogs and communities together.
Hope you’re having a great week and I’ll see you guys online!
