I can’t believe how long it’s been since I  truly posted! The post  was important because it served as a reminder that though things are good I’m allowed to feel tired and I don’t need to be perfect.

Shortly after posting that I took a mini break from all social media. While my plan hadn’t been to take a break from blogging unfortunately I did do that as well. While the break was needed the delay in blogging was also because I try to make this my mantra:

quotes bambi thumper be nice

I’ve found myself overly critical of people and as this is a blog about trusting myself and being open I wanted to protect this space from negativity.

Good news: I’m back!

I’m a bit emotionally battered as we’ve had two deaths in our circle in less than a week. While both deaths were from natural causes they’ve opened up some difficult conversations between us.

We’re contemplating the mortality of our own parents as well as have recently made a date to document our plans in the event of our own demise. Not really the sort of thing that makes you feel the joy of the season!

On the brighter side: ML & I are taking a week off together before Christmas. The Plan: nothing. Not a darn thing! We’re going to spend the time relaxing with each other and ending 2016 positively.

How has your month been?

    Oh I love your planned non-plan! That is my favorite way to spend time with my favorite people – just breathing and relaxing and doing not much or as much as we suddenly decide we want to do. Have a great week!

  2. Hey! Been meaning to comment on this for ages, but I just wanted to say how much I missed you! Your posts get emailed to me and I always get excited when a new one pops up. Your posts are my constant companion (I often feel isolated because I cannot participate in conversation because I cannot speak Korean). But I recently realised that you have no idea about this because I read your posts on my email and so it won’t come up on your viewing statistics. And so I though it high time I let you know and say thank you 🙂 xx

    I love chatting so feel free to shoot me another or a comment anytime.
    You truly made my day…in a couple of days you’ll hear/see the saga of the borrowed car. Your comment came on the day I got the bill :).
