I had a whole post that I hashed out & flew off my fingertips earlier this week. It was one of those where I knew I needed to leave it in my drafts to simmer. For me to go back to and tweak and then read to my sister and husband and see their thoughts. To process it more because I just wasn't sure. Wasn't sure if I was making the right decision. Not sure if I worded things right. Not sure if it was something I'd be proud of or regret later.
For now, it still sits, and that's okay. The basic gist is that I've been feeling really, really contemplative of this blog, of writing here, especially the last few weeks. I'm having an internal debate about it, and I'm still not at any clear resolution.
In my marriage, when Declan and I can't make a unanimous decision about something--we sit on it for a while, and let it simmer some more. Pray about it. If it's something that's not pressing and we just can't agree? We do nothing. We're all about equality. No strong-arming here. It works for us.
So for now, I'm gonna do just that--I'm doing nothing.
I really want to take the next few weeks to be fully present with my family, and to focus myself more on "advent", the arrival of Jesus and his birth--and all things that Christmas mean. Rather than fly right through this month without taking a hot-second to slow the heck down.
I have another great weight loss story I want to post next week, and maybe I'll pop in here and there--but mostly I'm just not going to let myself feel any pressure. At all.
Maybe in the new year I'll have some more clarity on the direction I'm being led.
leaving you with the photo that graced the front of our Christmas cards this year....
