Time flies but are we having fun?

2014 is ripping by in way that makes me wonder whether those long, lazy Summers that never seemed to end from my childhood are some kind of alternate reality. Why does time get so distorted depending on our age and the perspective we must then bring? I know there are answers out there somewhere.

Writing this post; rather than just thinking about writing a blog post is perhaps my way of trying to tie down the days that have flipped by into weeks and months. Is that how long it takes for anything exciting to happen in my life? Well no; my no-blogging has been more on the opposite side of the scale: too busy, never ending “to do” lists, prickly prioritisation problems, my previously creative-space free time been sucked away into one non-productive area in particular (perhaps a post for another time).

I’ve decided to try and reclaim EMpression by simply combining it with what is happening in my life: work, wife, mum, step-mum, mentor, reading, writing, homework, travel, fun, friends, family, celebrations, future study plans, renovation projects, knitting, running . . . ok I have a thing for lists!

My point is, I don’t have time for extras at the moment; but I have felt really bad about neglecting EMpression. I feel better when I am writing and even better when I am writing with a point. Originally, I wanted to use EMpression as an outlet and a kind of means to prompt me to try new things; to do and to explore and to discover. The reality is this takes a lot of time and although I might like my life to be about continually learning and going in new and different directions it is difficult to combine the path of discovery with my daily deal. But I do not give up that easily. I figure that EMpression just needs to broaden out and allow the daily deal in. No promises; but no more regrets; it is time for EMpression to reclaim a place and space in my week.

I will be updating all the EMpression pages over the next couple of weeks: new book lists, new book reviews, new pictures, new posts. I hope you can still find something to enjoy as you dip in from time to time.

  2. Majority of people tend to go for liquid diets taking lemon juices and fruit juices, which is the Master
    Cleanse Diet. This is probably one of the most common reasons of people not to lose weight on the HCG diet.
    So, anyone who has used everything but didn’t lose weight may
    use HCG diet drops permanently reasons.

  3. I absolutely understand what you are saying. I started out having a definite theme; it worked for a while and I was a good regular blogger; now I want to see if I can make the blog work for me; have more fun with it and if others want to come along for the ride that is great and welcomed; thanks for your comment and encouragement!

  4. Evolution is good. For me—I make my blog fit my life rather than my life fit the blog. I know some people who do wonderfully about blogging on a regular basis and building readership, but that is not me. I want it to relieve stress rather than add to it.
