That is a GREAT question. Where HAVE I been? My last published blog was April 11, 2017, which was 353 days ago. Wow. Let me first start by saying I did not take a trip to space. I did not set out to discover if the world is flat then fall off the edge. Nor did I crawl into a hole and hibernate for the last year. In fact, I have been right here in Salt Lake City living life and discovering more and more what it means to learn how to be. But over the course of the year I have done some traveling to see family and friends, and in those travels, I've had moments of great clarity. I love clarity, don't you?
My plan was perfect. I had it all worked out down to the days and hours that I would get stuff done. The only problem with my plan is it was just that ... MY PLAN. It wasn't HIS plan.
At the start of the year, I had a renewed sense of direction. I knew what I wanted to accomplish with or through Discovering Me, and nothing was going to get in my way. The recalibrating was done, and my focus was clear. And yet, on March 14, 2017, I found myself saying, "Wait, that wasn't the plan!"
... when you don't know what to write.
I'm so excited to have faithfully published a blog every Tuesday since the start of the year. And each week I have been hit with the inspiration stick so it's been fun and relatively easy... until today. I have no idea what to write about. So I asked my husband if I should write about what to write about... and well, you know his answer.
Dog stuck in watering bucketThis does lead to me think about what it feels like to be stuck. Do you ever feel stuck? Not necessarily stuck for words, but stuck in thought, action, inaction, etc. Maybe stalled is a better word. I have been stalled all day. In fact, I didn't even officially start my day until 6:30 p.m. this evening (that would be Monday evening, emphasis on MONDAY). Do you ever have days like that or am I floating on this cold, stuck, stalled Monday evening iceberg alone?
