Great Thoughts Don't Always Come to Me When Showering, in Fact They Rarely Do

The promise of a new year always excites me. It is like cracking open a brand new journal and deciding what to fill the first page with. Will it be an explanation of your purpose to fill the pages with quotes, poems, and sayings? Will it talk about the goals and expectations you want to document? Will you dive right in and start pouring out your heart? 

This blank page of a new calendar year always leaves me with a sense of profound responsibility and opportunity. The old year has passed, along with all of the good, the bad, and the truly ugly. Sure, some of the remnants of 2015 will transfer into 2016, but it won’t be the same. It is a fresh start. It is a new year.

Hello, again!

“Are you still writing your blog?”

This question came up in conversation the other day.

“Yes! Of course,” I quickly responded, not thinking much of it. It was only when I got home and thought about it that I realized that it had been almost a whole month since writing a post! How in the world has time gone by this quickly?

And so, as I write this on December 1, I’ve realized that November was really a month of silence.
