Reconnecting

My trip home for Thanksgiving was absolutely wonderful. After six weeks away from those I love, it was high time to reconnect with family and friends. I cannot tell you how refreshing it felt to be around people who just understand and get me, without explanation.

Since moving to Georgia, I've done a lot of disconnecting. Some of it intentional, but some of it was completely unintentional and happened in a way I didn't expect. When I'm unhappy, I tend to disappear into myself and it becomes hard to share my true feelings, even among my most trusted circle. I've been struggling with how much and what to share and what is better left for the familiar pages of my current journal. I'm still working on it, but I really feel like I'm in a place where I can slowly start to reconnect again-- with friends and family I've pulled away from, with myriad writing, and you, my dear blogging friends, a community I would be lost without.

I am looking forward to writing more. I need to write more. I need to freely open my head and heart up to the universe to declare my intentions, to make them real and tangible, to free myself of my own albatross I've unknowingly been carrying around.

Thank you to all of you have reached out, called, emailed, etc. Your thoughts and prayers over the past few months have been more comforting than you know. Im looking forward to reconnecting with friends, myself, and perhaps most of all, you.

Now tell me, how have you been doing,  friends?
