I’ve been sort of busy lately. I could use that as an excuse for my break from updating the blog, but I wasn’t so busy I couldn’t write. It just seemed like what I was doing wasn’t very interesting. Why bore you with my mundane details?
Then I stopped to look at everything I’ve done, and everywhere I’ve been since my last post.
In the last few months I’ve visited the great states of Florida, Tennessee, Illinois, Iowa, and Louisiana. I’ve spent time in small towns and bigger cities. I’ve flown on airplanes, and put some long miles on my car. All that travel brought beautiful sunsets, stunning scenery and a chance to see new things. There’s nothing boring about that.
I’ve had fun:
I’ve hiked, one of my favorite things to do, and explored in towns and countryside. I walked a 5k with family. I’ve sampled some amazing nightlife. Best of all, I held my newest nephew and fell in love with his adorable tiny face. There is nothing better than that, or more exciting.
I returned to the past:
Part of my travel was to complete a training project for my former employer. It was a challenge to jump in full-speed at a job I hadn’t thought about in over a year, and alarmingly easy at the same time. Some things you don’t forget. What I learned was that, despite my lingering proficiency, leaving that career was the right move. That kind of self-discovery is never dull.
I’m moving forward:
All those travels introduced me to my new home. I’m moving both figuratively and literally. My new abode is almost ready for me and I’ll be relocating to a place that will inspire and nurture my creativity. That might be the most exciting thing I’ve ever done.
So, upon reflection, maybe I was wrong. For a boring girl, I’ve been doing and learning some interesting things.
