Being driven is not the same as being passionate.
Passion is a love for the journey.
Drive is a need to reach the destination. ~Simon Sinek
I guess you've noticed, by now, that my little blog has undergone some changes: I changed its clothes again; I've removed the sidebar items and added most of them as links to the top; but most importantly, I've changed its name [don't worry about trying to find it...the web address will remain the same, for now].
When I started blogging FIVE...yes five...I can hardly believe it....years ago.... I was younger, my nest was well feathered, I was homeschooling, and I could still get up off the floor without a second thought :)
But things change.
I am seeing life from a different perspective as I navigate my way through the middle years. Since I wrote my first post almost 5 years ago, I've become a mother-in-law, a grandmother, and I have lost my earthly father. My nest is empty. My home is quiet. My days are not planned for me; I have choices I've never had before. I've been forced to re-think who I am and how I need to be spending my time and energy.
As much as having children in the home offers a mirror to reflect who we truly are, days of solitude with "self" as sole companion adds a whole new dimension that can be even more telling.
I have a better view of who I really am, what my true priorities are, who I'm really living for....not just who I want to be or pretend to be or think I need be.
And so, the stories....the pictures here may be a little different.
Thus, I introduce to you "Middle Passages"....my new blog space...a place where I hope to capture and share my middle year days.
I've always loved having younger blogging friends, and I hope you will still visit here, for not only do I want to share where I am now, but also where I've been.
Afterall, the heart knows no age...spirit is eternal.
I've found that some of you are shy about leaving comments...that you feel more comfortable communicating through email. If that's you, please know that your emails are always welcome; I try to answer them all.Drop Me a Note
