You know when you stop doing something for so long... you're not sure how to get started again?
Hi! I'm Lindsay. And I stopped blogging... and didn't know how to start again.
So much... life!... happened. So many experiences, so many memories, so many challenges and triumphs and daily-grind-things happened.
How do you pick back up? Where do you start?
But, I guess it's like riding a bike. Sometimes you just have to jump back on- and trust that those muscles just kick in.
My writing muscles are getting plenty of work. I forgot what it's like to write, write, write all day long... for a living. Did you know I write anywhere from 24 to 28 stories a day? That may not seem like a lot- but it all adds up to about 40 minutes of words. 40 minutes of listening- takes an entire day of writing.
And, I'm just loving it. I forgot what it's like- to enjoy working every day. It's not something to take for granted.
Speaking of jumping on that old bicycle- my leg muscles have gotten plenty of work, too. I've spent a lot of time on my bike the past few months. And running. And swimming. I finished my last sprint triathlon of the year last weekend- my first "open water" lake swim to boot- and it was SO intense!
But if there's anything I've learned in 2012- it's that the toughest uphill climbs- both on the bike and off- are the most rewarding at the end of the day.
All this to say- life is good! I'm proud that 9 months into a year with more than a few struggles- I'm still standing strong, crossing the finish line.
And I know there's nothing I can't tackle. A few bumps, bruises and broken hearts might happen along the way. And the blog posts- may not come easily.
But- it's all just like riding a bike. Right?
