when I get to the bottom I go back to the top of the slide


So, yes. Another new blog. Which means my former blog has been blown up. It’s what I like to do, apparently. (But you already knew that.)

It hasn’t snowed in Saskatoon in the past 10 days, which means the last 10 days have been my favourite days of the past seven months. I’ve logged more hours outside than I can count. It’s hard to believe the huge difference the outsideness has made on my mental well-being. It’s magical. And I’ve lugged 160kg of manure/compost/topsoil in the last couple days. That has to count for something, right?

Anyway, I decided to create this blog to write about positive things. Things that bring me joy. I spend so much time worrying about and obsessing over different parts of life that I can’t control, so I figured I needed a place to challenge me to write about the good things. I’m not trying to pretend it’s all rainbows and unicorns over here, but that’s the part I want to focus on. I’ve had some low lows lately, and I hate them. I don’t want to be stuck at the bottom. I want to go back up the slide. I want to have the courage and confidence that I lack.

So, welcome. I promise not to blow this blog up for at least three days.

    I’m so compulsive about my one blog that is turning eleven years old this summer that I cannot even fathom blowing a blog up. It sounds therapeutic. Maybe I should start new blogs that I can blow up.

      If I’d kept my original blog, it would be turning 10 in July. I’ve gone through two since then. This one being my third since the original. I have commitment issues. :)
