I Wandered. But I Wonder If I’m Home Yet?

My previous post was on 1 Jan 2019. Imagine that. Back then, I was sunnily determined to post about kind things, nice things and things that made the world less troubling and lonely. Then came 2 Jan 2019 …

Since then, there have been so many times I’ve wanted to write, to find some catharsis in posting but I didn’t think I needed to drag someone else’s day down with my whinging. I didn’t want to trigger something unhappy for someone else either. Needless to say, I was in no mood to look for kindness.

But here I am! By some weird and wonderful way, I received some new ‘likes’ and comments this month. Having been AWOL, I never expected any form of contact at all; I didn’t visit anyone’s sites (I am truly sorry for this). Was this a sign that it was time to rejoin the writing world? Was today’s RDP prompt – Wander – a metaphorical kick in the butt? A reminder that it was past time to let things out? And maybe then be able to let things go? Perhaps. Or perhaps writing is going to be a huge mistake because it means I’ll have to tell some, if not all, of my metaphorical wanderings. Am I ready for this much sharing?

Life hasn’t gotten any easier by any means; indeed, it could very well get worse this year. But without turning this into a soap opera, I’ll write. I’ll write about my wandering, missing year and, yes, I’m looking out for kindness again – there were many who were kind to me when I didn’t even know I needed that little extra smile.

So, hello friends, old and new! If you’ll bear with me, I’m back.


RDP Prompt ~ WANDER

  1. So glad to see a fellow blogger pick up courage again. Life has its griefs and tragedies, small and large, and there is benefit in sharing. It shows you that you’re not alone, that there is support in our suffering, and it encourages other to know they can also share their troubles and find the same support.
    So, write on!

  2. I’m glad you did find some kindness during your challenging year. Nice to see you back! (I’m currently on a break from blog writing, but feel free to stop in to see what happened last year – I’m always around).
