That person

I never thought I’d be that person who wakes up early and does fitness exercises.
I never thought I’d be that person who meditates every day.
I never thought I’d be that person who spends a lot of time in nature.
I never thought I’d be that person who goes to festivals.
I never thought I’d be that person who cultivates many good friendships.
I never thought I’d be that person who travels to another continent to see a band.
I never thought I’d be that person who surrounds themselves with plants.
I never thought I’d be that person who skateboards.
I  never thought I’d be that person who improves their singing voice.
I never thought I’d be that person who says ‘yes’ to all tempting invitations.
I never thought I’d be that person who goes out dancing and stays until the end of the party.
I never thought I’d be that person who dates casually.
I never thought I’d be that person who goes to the beach on their own.
I never thought I’d be that person who fills up a whole sketchbook.
I never thought I’d be that person who travels with only a small backpack.
I never thought I’d be that person who works in an office, and actually enjoys the work.
I never thought I’d be that person who builds up a business on the side.
I never thought I’d be that person who often surprises themselves.
I never thought I’d be that person who happily embraces change and the possibility for growth.
I never thought I’d be that person who sees this as essential for living a good, full life.

Yet here I am, reveling in every minute of it.

Writing, or the Future of this Blog

Ever since I opened up my clothing shop around this time last year (congratulations to me for making it to a year) I’ve barely written a word. Only texts for my shop and maybe two unfinished short stories. I stopped writing for this blog because a) time and b) I felt like no one was reading blogs anymore anyways. Not much has changed since then, but I have missed blogging. And if nothing else, my blog helped me establish a consistent writing practice. Nothing has helped me write as consistently as NaNoWriMo and my blog.

So, I’m going to start again.

I have no plan. I don’t know what direction I’m going to go in. (As usual) All I know is that I want to write more. Write better. Write consistently. And maybe someday it’ll go somewhere. Or maybe it’ll be a hot mess. Who knows, it doesn’t matter.

It’s going to be an experiment, as this blog has always been. I invite you to take it with me.
