I have become something I never wanted to be. Something I criticized others for. Something that in my deepest darkest moods knew I wasn’t capable of.
I have become this: Someone who started something and abandoned it. GASP!
Surely there is a support group for this very issue. Hello. My name is Ashley and I abandoned my blog.
How could I have let this happen?! So what if I have a full time job…. and am newly married… and have two stepchildren in addition to my 3 children… and a new extended family… and a new (to me) house to paint and re-decorate from the er.. “previous female inhabitant” aka ex-wife… and new neighbors to meet and get to know. Is that terrible?? Could it be that my life is so complicated I couldn’t maintain a simple little teensey weency blog? Umm, yeah. I guess the answer is yes. So what do I do?
I pick up my laptop, dust her off, give her a hug and
march type on!!
You’ve just got to keep on keepin’ on, right?! Nothing’s gonna stop us now! I think I can, I think I can! Just keep swimming! Push it! When the going get tough, the tough get going! It’s the eye of the tiger… Ok, you get the point. Bottom line is: I’m ba-aack!!
I may not post daily, weekly, bi-weekly or monthly but I will post, this I promise. I will imagine my little cheering section is jumping up and down! And I’m bowing and curtseying and blowing kisses as I accept a huge bouquet of roses!!
Ok, back to reality. Bottom line folks… reality is just that. To achieve YOUR goals in life YOU have to make the efforts.
Success is a journey, not a destination. The doing is often more important than the outcome.- Arthur Ashe

Ashley, you wax poetic!
Seriously, your writing style is amazing and a joy to read — an absolute Inspired Delight. The heck with marketing…you should be writing newspaper and/or magazine articles! Or let’s aim even higher…host inspirational seminars! I would sign up.
Haha! Thank you very much for your support and encouragement. It means the world to me! Validation at it’s best 🙂
