A Different Chapter

It feels be writing here again...yet familiar. Very much like the strange familiarity yet complete rediscovery of autumn. :)

For about a year now, blogger and google haven't worked on my computer (heaven knows why). My blogging suffered, but I was so busy it didn't matter much. And then, when I wasn't so busy any longer, I didn't feel like writing. My last post explain a bit of why. I had all these questions and doubts.. the most basic one was,
What's the purpose of my blogging?

I pondered this, but ultimately decided to let it rest, and it would come together at the right time.  I went on with my life, the changes and growths, the pains and joys. I missed blogging to a certain extent, but when I would think about it, those questions still plagued me. Even now, they leave me with a bit of uncertainty...
Recently, I re-read the Anne of Green Gables series by L.M Montgomery. I read the series a few years ago, but I forgot how absolutely delightful and refreshing it is. Though I'm not sure if that's how I thought of it then, but regardless, it was exactly what I needed at this time.

"I'm so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers. It would be terrible if we just skipped from Septermber to November, wouldn't it? Look at these maple branches. Don't they give you a thrill-several thrills?" ~Anne of Green Gables
The constant joy that Anne takes in the simple pleasures and ponderings of life, reminded me of something I had forgotten.  A certain freshness to life that I'd let evaporate. Little perspectives and taking joy that I buried under growing pains and disillusionment, disappointment, care, and distraction.

Somehow, I'm a different person than I was the last time I was blogging steadily. At first I was sad, and it was kind of like saying goodbye to a little sibling of mine, to realize how much I've changed, how much my life has changed, and how many things I miss. Blogging was one of those things, and letting go of expectations, disappointments, the past, and remembering other unexplainable, inexplicable things I'd forgotten, I think has enabled me to return to writing.
I'm only one person, in this enormous world, with a very, very little piece of the puzzle that is this universe, and it's not my place to decide how important my puzzle piece is, but to take care of it and share it with the rest of the world, if I feel led to. And I do! So that's nice, haha.
This is a new adventure- the same book, but a different chapter. And I feel willing to share my own journey again with those of you who care to perhaps gain a little comfort, encouragement, or whatever you'd like,  in my observations on becoming.
I would like to thank my dear readers that have commented during my absence-it means so much to me, and I appreciate it very much!
and Happy October! :)
