Life is a lot like sweet tea. It is all about how you make it………..
I started talking about writing a blog in early summer. I had a meeting with an acquaintance to discuss a new turn that his business was taking and how bloggers might help advertise the product. He asked me point blank why I didn’t have a blog. I rattled off several reasons. Mostly excuses now that I look back and think about it.
I then had meetings and discussions with a very talented writer and friend Michele Peers/Writers Block about blogs and what mine might look like SHOULD I decide to do one. Michele would call periodically to gently nudge me….when are you going to write your dang blog? I had holidays coming and the wonderful and crazy busy-ness (is that a word? ) I had a great deal of busy-ness in my life. I still do. I know you do too. All our many jobs that come with being mother, grandmother, chef, party planner, grocery shopper, laundress, house cleaner, chauffeur….I HAD A JOB amongst those other titles and on and on. BUSY-NESS!! I knew I was kidding myself if I thought that BUSYNESS would ever slow down. If anything I was I running behind in that marathon with time………and worrying if it were too late. At the same time something in my soul was calling out to me…..
When was I going to pull that dang trigger? So here it is. Call it pulling the trigger. Call it a leap of faith. At some point all our self doubts are our worse enemy and you just have to DO. I have no idea where this blog will lead or if this will be the sweet tea my soul is longing for. I have a villa renovation in Hilton Head that is complete that I’m going to share, a giveaway coming up for my Cincinnati/NKY friends (FREE DESIGN CONSULTATION), and I’m going to share a much loved recipe for sweet tea. One thing I am certain of is that there is no shame in my DOING. I am going to give this blogging a try. I hope you will at least follow me a little while and perhaps share what your leap will be in this new year. Perhaps you will find some sweet tea for your own soul along the way.
