Going down a rabbit hole

My word for this year is realize. I wanted a word that would challenge me. Realize. This is the year I do stuff. I’m not waiting for things to be perfect (never going to happen). I’m not waiting for someone to give me permisson. I’m not waiting for the right time and place. I’m not waiting to feel worthy enough. Talented enough. I’m not waiting.

Realize. I want to try something different. To pivot. I had a vague idea in my head and it felt like the universe was giving me signs. Leading me down a path to my pivot. There was The Midnight Library. A book about regrets and living life now with what you are currently creating. Podcasts Simple and Season and Cait Flanders Opting Out .  Simple and Season led me to Sasha at Frank and Feel.  The universe was  dropping me bread crumbs.

Blogging talks about niches and finding yours. My blog has been exploring my life. Book reviews, ideas, rants, writing prompts and basically anything that comes up for me. It has been a joy to write and has pushed me in so many other areas. It has been a safe place to share. I have become part of an incredible blogging community. You have enriched my life in your comments and support. You have seen me in ways other haven’t. Thank you.

Back to my bread crumbs that I am following. They pulled me to my pivot. I’ve decided to go down the rabbit hole – as why not? Life is about exploring. To live with fewer regrets. To go down the rabbit hole and follow these bread crumbs. To not explore would be a regret. Which if you have been following me is what I have been trying to eliminate.

What ifs are not the journey I want to be on. I don’t want to say in a year why didn’t I try that. I would rather say oh that was worth a shot even if it doesn’t turn out. That said I’m also not looking at the end-result as my final point. It is the journey which is organic and who knows what other bread crumbs will appear. These bread crumbs might change the end-result, which if it is a fixed point in my head I might not even see the bread crumbs. Hope that made sense.

Okay blah blah you are thinking. Get to the point what is this pivot. I’m going to explore making you can always start now more of a journal. To post journal prompts for me and hopefully us to explore. To see where this takes me. I feel this is something I need to explore and offer. Seriously, I have no idea where it might lead. Whether it takes off or not. All I do know is that I’m following bread crumbs into something new. Going down this rabbit hole.

So look for my first entry. Thank you to everyone that has followed my journey so far. You have created a safe place for me to explore. You have no idea what that means to me. Because of you pivoting isn’t that scary. It is just another path on my journey. Deep breath. Looking at bread crumbs which lead me to this rabbit hole. Exciting. Hope to see you there.

You can always start now!
