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.
When I started blogging, my mind was filled with thoughts, filled with words. My heart felt a lot of things. I could not wait to write them down each day. Writing about my thoughts and feelings helped me resolve some issues I had in me. It taught me a little about forgiveness, about imperfections, humanity, about love. It also helped me discover my passions. It is still helping me get to know myself more and the life around me.
I just noticed one thing and maybe it happens to other people too. When my father went to heaven, it suddenly felt like there is nothing more I can write about. No inspiring stories or reflections in my head. I was not sure how I was feeling. For a long time I just went on with the flow. It has been a year now. I don’t feel the same. However, I find delight in interviewing people who inspire me. Maybe this is a way to get me inspired again and get me back on track.
For now, I will keep looking for that inspiration.
There was a time when my head was filled with thoughts. I had to write them down. They were overflowing. My heart was filled with emotions. I had to let them out.
I am not sure if it has something to do with the sudden loss of a loved one. But after that event, it seems like I have nothing much to say. Maybe my mind is still full of him. Or my heart still grieves.
I have not been writing as much. Instead I focus on music. I find it comforting. Healing. Some of the clips I share to my Instagram account (khris_79).
I know I will be back on track someday. For now, I will just let things be.
I hope you are doing fine as well as you read this. Keep inspiring others. Keep searching for that passion. Do things that will make you happy. Happy life. God bless you all.
Winter break is almost over. One more day and everybody goes back to school and starts work. The weather forecast says there will be high chances of rain starting Monday until Friday, the first week of January 2016. I will surely be back to my regular routine. Hopefully I will have more chance to do my mini projects for 2016, finish organizing the garage, and be able to read/surf/write more. One major project I have in mind is organizing all photos in my computer. But I am sure I will not be able to work on that any time soon. Maybe years from now when I have nothing else to do. One at a time : )
Since I got back home, I usually feel sad, stressed out, and my temper short. I do my very best just to be a good mother although there are a lot of times my patience is being challenged.. Mind you, I generally feel happy and glad that I am back to personally take care of my family. My mother in law is still here until the end of this month as well as my mom. Maybe when things get back to normal, meaning my own established routine, and it will just be us home, slowly I will be able to have more time alone, hopefully more time to think and heal. School day starts soon and I am sure things will get back on track.
If nowadays I feel down, I know very soon I will again be the happiest.
I still count my blessings. All my friends who care, my family, my brother and sisters… And do not forget, the beer and the wine! 😉
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…”
