Thursday just happened, like it does, and then it was Friday, but we went from 2015 to 2016. The weight of the new year can feel so heavy sometimes. All this "blank space" to make something or do something (or at least say you will…) It makes me feel like I do sometimes when staring at this blank blog before writing something. Overwhelmed and a little lost. I feel like I have so much I want to do and say, and the longer I wait to do or say it, the more weight everything carries. So here I am, rambling through my first post of 2016. One of the things I want to do more this year (because you know, you can only make these kind of changes in your life at the turn of the new year…) is write. I love to blog, and journal, and write essays, and I have always told myself that its silly to spend too much time on it because I am a terrible speller, and never had any real "training" in writing. But I know that writing makes everything seem a little clearer in my head, and I like to share my experiences with others, something I don't do that well in person all the time, so writing and blogging is a creative outlet that I need to stop neglecting. Here's to 2016, and doing the things that we aren't perfect at!
