Tonight I tried to describe this blog in brief: it’s about grief and travel. “The grief of traveling?” Well, not quite, but there’s another topic to explore. As I moved away from Crazywidow.info and this blog my thought was to focus more on all of the topics I enjoy sharing with you: loss, cancer fundraising, road trips, local Lancaster fun. Every day, or every few weeks (as I see it’s been a while since I’ve shared with all of you), I find less and less to share about my grief journey and more to share about my life journey.
My grief is mostly kept in the closet now, and only oozes out with significant dates, and experiential reminders. I don’t describe myself as a widow who now has a boyfriend, I just have a boyfriend (not just). Life is going on without having that grief clause built into it. The things missing from my life more revolve around lack of motivation after I leave work, time to travel long distances, and my struggle with questioning and finding Faith.
So even with the blog having been redesigned to cover these stories, I am brought back to it’s original purpose: to focus on life, leisure and local. What a great reminder for my all around mission: live life to it’s fullest, experience leisure with the ones I love, and support my local community.
How do you describe your day to day journey? Are you living or looking in the past?
I would love for you to guest post on your idea of life, leisure or local. Leave a comment if you’re interested.
