Looking back on my old posts, I can't help but laugh at myself. I was trying way too hard. Truth time: I am not that bubbly and outgoing in real life. I'm actually a bit of an introvert. Hah, I can't help but cringe when I read those old posts.
So, why am I back here now? Do I have that renewed enthusiasm and inspiration again? Perhaps, a little. I definitely have a more realistic view of what it means to blog. I'm going to take it a little at a time. If I don't set such high expectations for myself, then I won't feel overwhelmed by the things I want to achieve. To be honest, I don't know what I want, or expect to achieve with this very public, paperless online journal. It's my way of channeling my time and energy into something that might very possibly become productive (but let's not set that expectation just yet. My imagination tends to run wild).
Three years is a long time, and a lot has changed in my life. For one, I've relocated to the other side of the country, and now call the Pacific Northwest, home. I'll always be a city girl at heart though. With this change in scenery, I feel like this is another chance for me to try this thing again. We'll see. It's a work in progress.
I am a work in progress.
