The hiatus is done, I think, well, for now.
Life. My life presents challenges to me everyday. Some days I feel up to the challenge and face it head on. Other days, well, I just want to roll over in bed and pull the covers over my head. But, I can't. I'm a grown up now. So, I press on. I may not do it with the most enthusiasm on those rough days, but I do it. And, that in itself is something about which I can feel really positive.
I had lost enthusiasm for writing about food. And, my husband and I were not sticking with the raw food diet much anymore. So, I stayed away from this blog. I wasn't sure which direction I wanted to take it. Plus, like most everyone else, I started looking for another job, which is like a full-time job. I do already have a job, but it's in real estate, which is exceedingly difficult. But, it's a job, and, in addition to spending time applying for jobs, I needed to spend time focused on my current job in order to keep paying the bills. Sound familiar? Probably, if you are like me and the thousands of people trying to make ends meet or trying to build back the savings they have used up. (If not, well, good for you.)
That focus, plus the turn in the Chinese New Year (you may laugh, but I'm a believer), has made things a little better. We have a little breathing room. And, a little less stress. And, therefore, I can think about doing fun things again. Like this blog. I don't know if it will stay food focused. But, it will continue to be about things that fulfill me. But, that's the fun of it, right? Life's a journey, not a destination. Ahh, Life.
