Although I was advised by a few people to have just one blog and incorporate everything I do there I miss blogging here and keeping up with Blogger friends too which is so much easier to do if you are blogging regularly. I love to try new things and keep learning and sometimes that takes you full circle.
I was going to ask your thoughts on whether you think I should resurrect this blog.. I'd actually started a new one on Moobaacluck.com which you can see if you're quick. There's only one post!
Blogging actually gives me real pleasure. I make mistakes - I goof up (can you tell I've been listening to Amercian interviews) and can be a little too warts and all sometimes. I forgive myself. Life is too short. Enjoy it and don't worry about what other people think you SHOULD do. If you're happy doing it, do it. One of the absolute pure joys of being a solo self employed business woman - for yes that's what I am in my haphazard but increasingly determined way is that you are in charge.
Some of you will know that my grandfather died this week at the age of 94, he had a long life and for almost 93 years a very healthy one. The first half of his life was so eventful - in charge of a ship of men to sail to defend the Suez canal, I can't help but think he must have been bored and frustrated with life in his last two years, relatively housebound. When someone you love dies it makes you question what is important. Embracing life is and making the most of it. Opening up not shutting down. Doing what you love. Being with those you love as much as possible.
All obvious and this post has turned into one of those bare my soul types again! It helps me X
