Hello There Old Friend

Hello there, old friend. I’ve missed you. I’ve missed the me who I was when I was with you. Life has changed a lot in the last 5 or 6 years. Some days I feel a bit lost. Some days I miss the joy I used to get out of writing, whether that be poetry or random blog posts. That connection that used to exist, albeit with online strangers. It was nice, it provided a temporary purpose.

Don’t get me wrong, my life has purpose of course. I have a good job, a beautiful 6-year old daughter, a house, the love of my wonderful family. I am fortunate, I can’t deny that. But I believe I was drawn back to these keys, to this screen, because I’ve felt somewhat empty. Like, it’s not enough. Maybe it’s something about being in my 30’s. I’ve learned more about myself, have seen how differently I feel about things now compared to when I was 20. Is it wise for people to make all these important life decisions in your 20s? Work, marriage, kids. Do you even know yourself well enough at that point? I’m starting to think not.

Anyway, this isn’t a woe-is-me post. This is me talking to myself (because who’s going to see this) in the hopes that if I just dip my toe in now, maybe I’ll keep coming back to this. Maybe I can rebuild what this was, or at least find that part of myself that I’ve missed. Fill a void. That’s the hope, but time will tell.

  1. It is so good to see you back in the blogosphere, Lily! I did a double take when I saw you in my inbox, but it was such a pleasant and nostalgic surprise. 🙂 I hear you about things feeling different in your 30s. I don’t know how this blogging thing will go for myself either, but I sure hope we can both kickstart the old writing juices again. Happy you’re doing well, and happy to reconnect with you here again!

    1. Hiiii!! So nice to see a familiar name. 🙂 This place was everything to me years back, oh how I miss that time!

      I hope this works out or the both of us. Happy you’re still around. Hope you’re doing well! Enjoy your weekend!

  2. I likewise was mildly surprised to see this pop up in my inbox. Quite the pleasant surprise though! I also miss writing, even the relative meaninglessness of writing on this blog, so… I am grateful for someone I enjoyed reading to even contemplate returning, and maybe giving me the inspiration to do the same.

    1. So nice to see another familiar name! I hope you’re doing well! Maybe we can all find new inspiration again. I so miss that feeling, connecting with others ages ago. I will put a real effort in…and see how that goes! 😉 Take care!!

  3. Same hear I was surprised when I saw an email from WordPress. You have an amazing gift glad you’re seeking it out again! Hopefully, it will fill that void you’re feeling!

    Love u,
