Don’t Scrumple On It! March 2010

I have to admit that when I read over the above information from WordPress, it was a bit surprising.  I am my own worst critic and when I consider my daily stats I get a far less rosy picture.  I guess the lesson here is the same lesson I need to take in Yoga – less judgment over myself and more focus on being present in the moment.

2009 and 2010 were difficult years for me – regardless of how I think the blog’s done or over the top ideas I might have, it’s been my steady constant.  The place where I can come and share my thoughts, seek inspiration, and maintain a tiny bit of space that’s all my own.  For that I am incredibly grateful.  Thank you for coming along with me!
