Behind The Blogger
~ New Beginnings ~
This is my first time joining a writing prompt hop, I guess that’s a new beginning in itself. Each January I find myself replaying the past year in my mind. Thinking about all the ups and downs as well as my accomplishments and failures. As a blogger, I think we tend to do these things almost daily, but each new year, is also a great time to reflect and build on past experience while also creating new goals for our future.
Each year, I try to focus on one aspect of my life that needs a little more attention. This year, as my children are growing and becoming more and more independent, I have realized, I just want more time. This year I have vowed to not only continue our old family traditions, but to also start making new ones.
My oldest child (20) has been living on her own for almost a year now. While I still see her almost daily, I still feel like I haven’t had enough time. My youngest, who is 16 going on 30, has big dreams and aspirations for himself, that include moving out on his own as soon as he is allowed. Which in my book should be never! But realistically I know the day is coming.
My goals this year are centered completely around my family, but more specifically, making time for and memories with my kids.
Thank you for reading a story from #BehindTheBlogger Hop. Every 2 weeks a group of bloggers is given a writing prompt. These prompts are very open ended, so our bloggers can write about whatever they desire. The main rule is that their blog post directly relates to the topic of that week. The point of this hop is for our readers to get to know us on a personal level.
Please hop along and read all of the blog posts in this weeks hop. Just click the links below. If you want real and raw emotion, then you will find it here. After you read each post, please comment and share. We want to get to know you too!
