This post was written last night but I waited till the right moment before finally posting it.
It’s just like its title!
I’m keeping the date when I wrote it though and yes, it has been a week since the last time I posted a blog.
Until now, I can’t help but smiling whenever I remember all the messages I got during this week. Apparently, families and friends have been wondering about my lack of blogs. They all asked whether I was okay or not.
Well, am I?
YES, I am okay! It’s the usual “busy” reason with things in the real life. Since I’ve decided that this is not the place for me to share personal updates, all I can say is, last week has just been counted as one of the best weeks I’ve had in 2010 so far. Things are moving so fast, I found myself so inspired but at the same time, after all said and done, I know I have to do it differently.
I need to change.
Before you start smiling, thinking that this is the right time to throw “I’ve told you so!” at me, let me just say that what I mean by ‘changing’ is the way I do things on-line. I’ve been sharing things on-line for years. This year is, by far, the most challenging one for me. I love privacy thus I only share personal updates and future plans with people I trust the most.
It is about “where” to share “what”.
I’m beyond grateful that I have a place to share my writing with everybody as well as some places to share the not so public updates with some people. However, I had forgotten that the list of “people I trust the most” must include “me” on it! Therefore, there should be a place where I can have the liberty of writing without the need of sharing with anybody but me.
There are different ways of sharing things.
Thanks to a conversation with my best friend, Ita, who told me how she found her old travel journal to Israel among all of her books last week, it suddenly dawned in me that I hadn’t written on a real journal constantly for years! I tried it again last week and I’m glad the words still flew like before. I would be dumb struck if I write faster on my laptop than on a paper.
Balancing everything is the key!
Finding peace is the result!
