Love the bush!

We got outdoors over the long weekend.  A trip to a park near the river on Saturday and then bush walking yesterday.  Jut love being out in nature!

When life is not going your way...

Take time to stop and smell the roses.  Well in my case, since I deliberately didn't want any roses in our garden (I was all rosed out after having over 30 rose bushes beautiful though they were that needed pruning every year at our last house), I am taking time to plant some vegie seeds.  It helps me to take small steps in the direction of where I want to go.  Ie I want us to have a vegie garden this autumn but if I look out in the backyard there isn't one.  So planting some seeds that will need transplanting somewhere when they are bigger will hopefully help that to become a reality.  

And seeing the joy that this gorgeous little man has in learning to walk also helps.  He loves pushing the car up and down the verandah again and again.

Why I Haven't Been Blogging...

For anyone that has been wondering why I haven't posted lately I have been struggling with big, hard to answer questions.  Like what is my purpose in life?  Why am I here?  What life work am I to do?  What am I good at?  How can I contribue to the world beyond my family?  The only thing is that my life is a lot more complicated than when I last wrestled with these question in my late teens, early twenty's.  I am limited in the time I have to study or work and where and what I'm willing to do and ... 

So feeling directionless and not having a view of the big picture of my life beyond the wife and mother I am wanting to be doesn't inspire me to write or share.  Does that make sense?  Anyone else relate to this searching?
