a lost voice

based on my number of posts last year, I lost my voice in 2013. 

I wonder if you've ever felt like me? I found myself getting lost in the lives of my favorite bloggers and not my own. I found myself wanting to have the perfect post instead of a honest sharing of my heart. I found myself creating just so I could share it in this space. then I found myself disliking more about blogging than I liked. so I made a decision to take a pause. that pause turned into a stop. 

unfortunately when the words stopped flowing on my blog, my creative juices stop flowing as well. It wasn't until November that I started knitting and finishing...anything.

one of my 2014 goals is to rekindle my love of creating, writing, and connecting in this space and in yours. I invite you to travel along with me this year. welcome back.

For unto us a child is born,
unto us a son is given;
and the government
shall be upon his shoulder:
and his name shall be called
Wonderful, Counsellor,
The mighty God,
The everlasting Father,
The Prince of Peace.
-Isaiah 9:6

part of cultivating a good life is...

in the face and saying

words for wednesday

the goal is to find a task,
a really important good task,
that requires your full attention
and follow that task to completion!
don't get caught up in multi-tasking
or the 'smoke and mirrors' of busy.
