Jan 31

An explanation, of sorts

There are lots of great things on the way this year, but it felt weird just launching into blogging again after such a long break without some kind of explanation. So, here it is:

January was way too busy with family commitments and behind the scenes planning for me to get anything productive done on my blog. So, rather than stress about it and feel guilty, I have simply shifted my official ‘Let’s Get This Party Started’ date to the 1st February.

This year, I’m finally feeling like I’ve turned a corner after all the issues of the past few years, probably because I’ve finally found a GP who was willing to look at the cause rather than the symptoms and offer some practical, supportive advice to help me refocus and make the changes I need.

There are some exciting plans underway for 2013, both personally and professionally. I’ll talk about them over the coming months, but it felt a bit awkward to simply jump into blogging again after such a big break without some kind of lead in.

So, this is it. My explanation, of sorts. I’ve been stressed and discouraged, but I’m feeling much better and I’m ready to get started on some exciting new opportunities. I’ve been way too distracted during January to make the kind of changes that I need to make, so I’ve reset my calendar with February 1st as my official day to make a fresh start on the year.

I’m looking forward to a great year. I hope you are too.

    I think February 1 is a perfectly civil time to start the new year…wish I had thought of it myself 🙂
