My gosh, it’s 15 months to the day that I last wrote a post here! Time certainly does fly. I’ve graduated college, taken and left a job, rejuvenated and renewed my love of cycling, among many other ups and downs. I’ve even cut all of my hair off and dyed it blue, but more on that another time, Maybe.
I was struck with the idea today that this blog here could use a little attention. I initially began writing Take It from Meg as an advice blog, the idea being that I might strike it famous somehow with all of my wisdom and insight. (Arrogant, Moi?! Well, I never…)
This spring I had the humbling and divine inspiration to let go of all ideas of fame and fortune, to merely live my life and make a difference wherever I can. It’s one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. Gone is the idea that I have to make a lot of money in order to relax in life. Gone is the constant wondering if this-that-or-the-other friend/family member/acquaintance is going to be my ticket to consistent income. Gone is the arrogance that Dammit, people should WANT to pay me for my wisdom. (I know!!! Holy crow with the ego!!!)
I’m reinventing this blog as simply the space for sharing. Authentic sharing. It may come in the form of a recipe, a photograph or video, a book or song I love, or some anecdote. I’m not going to try to wow you with grace every damn week. But I’m committed to being here, one week at a time, and seeing what gets uncovered and discovered.
I invite you to join me.
