Making my own luck

I have been reading some of my old posts to try and find my voice again.  I think that it is helping.  Once we moved from our apartment in Strasbourg into my husband’s parents home, I lost my heart for writing.  I want it back. 

I know that I miss France and that it will never go away.  I know this because I have been reading my old posts about missing America and how I would think about and miss America every day that I was living in France.  You can read one of my favorite posts here

I am happy today.  I am keeping my life in perspective.  I am looking to the future and the day that our family will have our own home.  I love the time we spend here with my father and his wife.  Both of them are wonderful to us and I am learning to trust in people again.  I want to trust again.  I need that.

Today, I am making a promise to myself that I will only see the good.  I will not let anything that is not useful to me or my family get me down.  I am going to slow down.  One thing you may not have figured out about me is that I process information quickly.  I do everything too fast.  I walk, eat, talk, think, drive, drink, answer without thinking…well, you get the idea.  I need to slow down. 

I want to enjoy my life while I am here no matter where I may be living.

I am going to make my own (good) luck and I am going to find my voice and dust her off.  My posts have been awful for too long.  Even I am tired of reading them!  Here’s to a better life and much improved blog throughout 2007.
