I was gone for a very long time. I have stopped writing and I am not sure why. It is so easy to express oneself in Instagram. Photos, words, and then just post! You can check me out in Instagram (@khristinegiron).
But here I am. I am back. Maybe expressing oneself in words would be too much in Instagram or in any other social media. I am glad I have this site.
I have been busy at home. I am a stay-at-home, full-time mommy and wife. During my spare time, I am usually doing either of these two: Dragging myself to run on the treadmill or having a relaxing moment playing my flute. If I go back to writing this will be my third option.
I am actually playing my flute when a thought came to mind. It had something to do with a remark said to me a while ago.
It doesn’t really matter what others think or say. Others can also mean people who are close to you. Do what makes you happy. Pursue your passion. For instance, if my passion is to write or to play the flute, it should not matter if the people I know believe in me or not. What should matter is that I love what I do and it makes me happy. One should not be discouraged by others’ opinions. This is my life. I will live my life the way I want it!
Have a great day! I miss my friends here in WordPress. Hopefully I”ll be more visible.
Through blogging, I have come to know myself better. And I am continuously learning about a lot of things in the world, about being human. About living.
Part of this learning is finding my passion. The ultimate role or mission I have at the moment is being a family woman. Being there for the children, for the husband, and caring for the house, for the home. I say 90% of what I do is for those mentioned. And the remaining is for myself. I discovered my passion for blogging and playing music. These two for some reasons bring joy to me. I feel I can do these things for hours without getting bored (unlike when I run on the treadmill for 20 minutes).
I talked about my flute in my past post (Playing Music) sometime in January 2016. For almost two months now, I have done something for myself. I have done it by self-study. Practiced playing the instrument during spare time from the mommy duties. So here, I would like to share with you some songs.
I usually share some clips on my Instagram account (khris_79). Some of you who are my IG buddies know that : ) Hope your day will be filled with music.
I wish I can talk about something else just like before. Seeing beauty in simple things, so much positivity striving to live a more meaningful life.
Honestly I am not sure what I feel at present. Definitely it is not vibrant and lovely. There are days it feels just so ordinary. I go on with my routine taking care of my family and our home. Alongside with it, there are minor distractions. At least I try to convince my mind that it is just minor and does not deserve my energy… But yes, life goes on. It will never pause, never stop even if you lose something or someone. I am living the reality of life. Trying to just move along, going with the flow. Ignoring what is inside, maybe a turmoil, some sadness and darkness.
The other day I just burst into tears. I usually do not cry. And if I do, it is just for a while. A memory suddenly came to me. I remember maybe it was last Fathers Day, when I was on the phone with my Dad. I just told him I am planning to visit him next year and I could not figure out yet the schedule. I had to wait for my son’s school calendar and work out my visit. I remember he said, “Okay, I’ll be here…”
I used to read my fellow bloggers’ posts to get insights, wisdom, and inspiration everyday. I have not been too active these past few weeks. I would like to apologize for not being around, for not visiting your sites often. Soon, I will get back on track. With my Dad’s passing, I am just existing and going with the flow.
I know you will all still be there after this. Keep shining and inspiring!
Last time I was advised by you, my fellow bloggers, to back up my posts. I did copy and saved them through word. But now, Again, I have a lot of unsaved posts. I am just so bad with remembering to back up through MS Word. I usually write on the spot, spontaneous, direct from my Ipad.
I wish and I imagine it would be nice if with every post we make, we automatically get a copy by email from WordPress. I am not a “techie” person so I am not sure if this is feasible.
