A mightily belated Happy Thanksgiving! And Happy Holidays! Happy New Year!
I’ve been on what I began referring to as a “holiday hiatus.” It was completely unplanned, unintentional, but somewhere around Thanksgiving I just stopped checking Twitter. Before I knew it a week had gone by, and then two. It felt so good to take a break from all the noise that I just kept going. I even stopped blogging.
My focus has been elsewhere for the past month or so. I’ve been thinking about and acting a lot on my health and my self (the spacing there is intentional). Always a proponent of unapologetically owning who you are and what you believe, I’ve been working on allowing myself certain things that seemed selfish in my brain but, it turns out, make me a better person in real life.
This time has been important and I’ve learned and realized a lot that I may have missed had I spent it plugged-in. Plus, it’s been really nice not to think in witty, 140-character blurbs (those of you who tweet know what I’m talking about). I do plan to significantly limit my social media time going forward, but I’m ready to be back here.
We have a lot of catching up to do.
I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season. I hope it was filled with great food, wonderful people, and lots of love. I’d love to hear about any highlights and any resolutions/intentions/plans you have for the coming year. 2012 is already looking pretty darn great from over here.
