I’ve really missed writing blog entries these past few weeks. I think of something to write about, and then overthink it, worry that it’s too cheesy or too personal, or just boring… and then I write nothing. I hope to stop overthinking so much. Not just here in my blog, but in everything I do. Hmmm… maybe I have a New Year’s resolution in the works. Anyway… I’m here now, with the best reason ever to write –
I wish you, my followers, supporters, friends and family – all of whom are a very loving and important part of my little, cozy blog-world – a very merry Christmas! If I don’t get on here before the calendar turns over, have a great and safe New Year, too!
Thank you all for following my adventures this year. It’s been a ton of fun sharing it, reading the comments you’ve left for me, and responding when I had the opportunity. I hope to be able to respond to your comments more often from here on out, especially since I should have a more reliable signal on a more regular basis now. Hmmm, maybe another resolution? I should start a list!
So I’m going to be thinking a lot about 2013 and what it meant to me over the next couple of weeks, and I’ll try not to shy away from sharing some of that. It was a really amazing year, and I will strive to stay motivated to make the next one just as good. I hope to keep you all up to speed on my next journey, in truck driving, and hopefully as entertained as I’m sure I will be (with the good and not-so-good)!
So what’s next? I start classes for my CDL in less than a month, and before that happens I hope to finish and post my gear review (which I have a really good start on already) and finish going through my PCT photos. I’ll also keep walking, relaxing and mentally preparing myself for learning and living according to a schedule again for a little while. I’m starting to feel antsy and excited to get going with this next phase.
Since I’ve last written, I’ve spent a lot of time with family, especially since it’s Christmas-time. I’ve been taking lots of walks that make me smile and remind me just how much I love to walk and enjoy the exercise, the trees, birds, animals, clouds, breezes… there’s so much in the outdoors that makes me feel warm and genuinely happy inside.
As always, here’s some photos of some of what I’ve been up to in my quiet state these past few weeks.
Thanks for reading and being a part of my journey!
