I wonder a lot about “meant to bes.” Like what if I didn’t move to Los Angeles out of the blue in 1996? Would I have met my husband another way? What if I’d decided to stay at my last job? Would I have started this blog anyway? Was I supposed to get into the blogging space to lead me to where I am now? If I hadn’t, I don’t suppose I’d have the freelance writing jobs I currently enjoy or the social life either.
I used to write here often, because it was where I was “meant to be,” I think. And then other responsibilities began to challenge my time and brain, and I gradually began to stop showing up at San Diego Momma so much.
But was that meant to be?
I can’t imagine ever giving up what I’ve created here or the people I came to know, so the Internet is definitely stuck with me, however, maybe it’s OK to put focus elsewhere for a bit?
I do know that I’ve gained a lot over the years, learned a million lessons about people and character and my own self. I’ve gone places in my “skillset” I never thought I could visit.
So maybe it’s OK to take some time away.
As some of you may know, I’ve been working at a company named Two Funny Brains, and been diligently pumping up the brand there and what we do with my partner and good friend, Jessica Bern.
Who I met through blogging and who has encouraged me to go places with my head.
Because all this – the move to LA, the job, the leaving the job, the blog – it was meant to be?
I hope so.
Here’s my latest thing:
And I’m still coming back here a lot.
There’s certain things you can’t let go of, ever.
