I’ve been struggling a bit in the area of writing for my blog. At first it was because I only had one thing I wanted to write about, and I couldn’t tell yet, so I felt like I had nothing else to say. And now that we’ve announced it, that’s all I’ve posted about – and I don’t really want to be that blogger either.
However, in the summer of 2009 I started to feel like I wanted to live a more passionate and adventuresome life. I didn’t want my life to simply be a string of those beautiful “life moments” that are quickly forgotten in the busyness of life. Those moments fade like an old photograph until almost nothing exists of them at all. We move on to the next stage, the next challenge, or the next joy and completely forget the sweetness that was just a moment ago.
I started thinking of a way to live a deliberately challenging, winsome, and adventuresome life. I started to wonder what that would look like for a full-time mom of two tiny boys and a wife to the most amazing man. Its not as if I have loads of time I am trying to fill, but I do have loads of aspiration and desire. I need an outlet for these hopes within me that fill me to the seams and make me feel as if I’ll burst if I don’t have passion and pursuit as part of my daily life.
I DO want to live a passionate and adventuresome life. I don’t want to let life moments slip away without making the most of them and REMEMBERING them. Ever since I was a teenager, I have wanted to “Remember Everything”, and to do that I wrote things down (which meant I wound up with a lot of very boring and embarrassing “Journal” Notebooks…). And that’s my purpose here as well – to write to remember.
Then the other day we were watching “We Bought a Zoo” (WOW, what a tear-jerker!) and a man was talking about his wife who had passed away and listing all of these things that she was passionate about or loved, like red kites.
It made me wonder if people would be able to say what I was passionate about.
So! All that to say -
YES, I will be writing posts about baby and pregnancy, because that’s a HUGE part of our life and I want to remember all of it.
But also, I want to write about what I’m passionate about and what I have to say in general. Because I do have something to say. Sometimes I get stuck so much on wanting to say something “important” and have “influence” on people. But I’m here to write about our life, which is VERY important to us, and if it has an influence on others than Glory to God!
I hope you will enjoy reading about our life and my passions. I want people to know what my “Red Kite” is.
