The last few weeks, I’ve been away from all forms of social media. I haven’t blogged, been on Twitter or even checked Facebook. Truth is, I’ve hardly even been on my email.
The break has been nice. Disconnecting online to connect in person over the holidays isn’t a bad thing at all, except for missing a lot of my favourite people, whom I connect with here in the ether because we live too far away to hang out in person.
But it’s a new year, and time to get back to work in earnest, and time to jump back into the social media pond. I won’t be attempting to catch up, except on a few favourite blogs. One quick glance at Facebook this afternoon showed me that would be impossible. That way madness lies. Instead, I’ll look for the significant updates, like news of my friend’s surprise Christmas baby, born five weeks early. And the rest, well, I’ll just call it a fresh start and go from here.
For me, September is the time for new goals and plans for the new year, not January, so this is more like coming back from holidays, trying to find my groove again. So, a little blog post here to dip my toes in, and I’ll call it a start.
Wishing you all the most wonderful of new years, filled with laughter and the kind of joy that bubbles up inside you, filling you to the tips of your fingers and toes.
