Start by doing what’s necessary; then do what’s possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible. -Saint Francis of Assisi
I remember being so happy to celebrate January 1st, 2010. It was a huge relief to be able to say “Good bye” to that year. Like so many who have experience “that year,” it was good to start with the mental relief of turning a page on the calendar. With time I’ve come to realize that it was only a start. My emotions and heart are still working on finding ways to live at peace with the events of that year.
I closed this blog early in 2010, but it was with so much pain. Much of me just wanted to keep the release and peace that writing gave to me. For some time I blogged under another title. But this blog was home and I wanted to be here. I had made the decision to let this blog rest because it seemed best for the relationships in my life. Also, I also didn’t have the strength left within me to tell others that this place, Birdy’s Blog, was my place and I needed it.
Time has passed. Many, many changes have taken place in my life. I’ve come to a place of being able to do what I thought impossible. It is in that spirit that I have decided, it is time to write here again.
