2012 was a good year, but I expect 2013 to be even better. New year, new chapter in life. Like the seasons, changes come.
Change is often not easy. I'm usually up for it. Except when it feels thrust upon me and I feel powerless to do anything about it. That kind of change, while I will adapt, it's not always easy.
Facing a new year? That kind of change, I like. I feel in control of things. I can plan if I want to, fly by my pants-seat, whatever I choose.
Changing the kinds of topics I blog on? That's so happening in 2013. I might lose some more followers, sure. That's just how life goes. In real life people come and go, friends can change with the seasons. We're people, we change again and again. My favorite meal this week is different from what it was three years ago.
Change is good.
Major changes have been afoot in my life. If you've been reading this blog for a while, I'm sure some of the changes are noticeable. Maybe they're not. It's okay either way.
I'm excited! I don't even know what I'll be writing about. Isn't that crazy?! I just know my blog content is shifting directions and it's not an overnight thing. I went back and re-read every post since March. I did that to help me continue my creation of this post which I began writing yesterday.
It's our first 2013 post together, as you read what I've written here. I've worried a teensy bit about turning people off with this new direction. But with each passing moment, I'm learning to accept life conditions more and worry about the inevitables less. It's freeing. It feels like flying. I like it.
So away we go! As you can see, I'm exploring the blogger layout options. Be patient with me as I experiment with the look of my blog.
It'll be fun and interesting to observe what this new year brings to us all.
What kind of changes are YOU making in 2013? Do you make resolutions? (I don't) Do you make plans? Or do you just wing it?
