I thought I’d add a page to my blog, perhaps a diary of sorts on my year of experiencing more.  I’m somewhat amazed how this became a thing for me. I honestly thought it would be like everything else I’ve started with enthusiasm and it would fizzle out within a week.  But no, if anything it is gaining momentum.  For a quick reference to what I’m talking about, my blog post is HERE.  I’m not sure what format this will take but here we go…..

February 17th.

Since my post, I’ve been just trying to get my bearings on how this project could work for me. Really asking myself “what do I want more of ?”.  I find that being honest with myself is not as easy as I thought it would be.  With a little soul searching, it ended up that I wanted :

  • do more things just for me
  • open up more on my blog

As I started thinking of myself more – I’m going to open a huge parenthesis here….. (I started cooking more of the things I enjoy eating. You see, the kids don’t enjoy fish or Brussel sprouts or lentils but I seriously love them. So, even if I have to make two different meals, I’m doing it !)   And, this has translated to shedding some pounds.  Yay !!  However, I’ve lived at this weight for the last 20 odd years and this newness is something that will take some getting used to.  Embracing this new skin and the evolving transformation is going to be an interesting journey. It’s odd because I didn’t necessarily want to loose weight when I started this. It’s such a peculiar thing – how one step leads to another.

I’d also like to try and open myself up a bit on my little corner of the blogosphere. I envy those people who can blog openly about their lives, feelings and thoughts.  I’m not sure I’ll be that much of an open book but this side page of my blog is a good start.

What other little things have I been doing just for me ?  Obviously I’ve been reading quite a bit (that’s nothing new!) Organizing my room, I donated 3 bags of clothing and there will be more in the coming months !  This means I’ll have to do some shoping – I dislike clothes shoping – just the thought makes me want to run and hide – but perhaps, fingers crossed – I’ll learn to enjoy it a little more !

So, welcome to my journey of diving into “more” this year. Since I’m reconnecting with the foods I love, I hope to share some delicious recipes and hopefully some interesting little slices of life along the way.
