yesterday was my birthday. i can't remember the last time i was this content on my birthday. a lot has changed since my european holiday last year. i was inspired daily, for a month, by pure authenticity and genuineness. and that's hard to find and to hold on to.
if you've been following my blog for the past three years, you must have noticed the change of blog content and i must say, frequency, of my postings. i used to blog once, twice, and even three times a day. looking back, what was i thinking?
pw.travelogue has been the anchor of this blog since june of last year. i started posting my travel photographs every friday. i felt the need to share 1. my travel experiences, 2. my typography and photography, 3. original content that i hope to inspire.
it's not an epiphany or any of that sort, it's more of a personal choice at this point of my life to choose what is important. i've been embracing this blog as more of a passion project. when it comes time to prep my posts for fridays, i actually look forward to it, rather than feeling it was a job because i have to keep up with "blogging". and when i get too busy with work, i let go, and say to myself, there's always next friday.
when i was away for that month in europe, i was completely unplugged. there was no internet for me to surf and no social media for me to catch up on. i find myself spending less and less time in the social media world now, and more time at the library, checking out books that i want to read. yes, things that are important to me.
yesterday i spent a perfect day, with my husband and with myself. sprinkled with phone calls from family and friends in between. affogato made off of the menu just for me. an awe-inspiring museum visit. and ended the day with my daily routine – a long run and walk around the silver lake reservoir.
priorities. i tell myself that all the time now. and this year, there will be more traveling. more time with family and friends. my dad has always said to me, "you always find time to do the things that you want to do."
well, here's to another year, older and wiser? certainly older, and more content than ever.
