Happy 2013!

Well, well, well.  Look who is back from the abyss.  Me!
Oh, my dear readers, I have so much to share. Where to begin?
I dropped off the face of the Internet and Blogosphere.  Why?  Because I have been personally overwhelmed with a few issues in my life, not the least of which is the darling little fermentation book I’m cooking up for all of you.  Yes, I am going to give you the “I’ve been sooooo busy!” excuse.  It’s true, but it is really a lame and pathetic excuse. Don’t you hate it when someone tells you they’ve been too busy to be a friend?  It’s essentially like saying that you have been de-prioritized or downgraded and that you don’t rank high enough to warrant an email, phone call, text, or blog post.
I’ve let you down, readers!
I have had ample time, strictly speaking.  I found time outside of book writing to do fun things and take a little three-day trip out of the country, to celebrate my birthday (39! Represent!), complete a knitting project, and to see a movie or two. So why haven’t I found time to post here and keep all of you educated and entertained?
Fear. Writer’s block. Feeling pressure. Being overwhelmed with thoughts on direction and purpose. You know, the usual.
You see, I’m the health coach, right?  I’m the one who is supposed to have it all together and eat really well, and be inspired so I can help others to do the same.  But the thing is, I wasn’t feeling it at all.  I was sucked into the perfectionism vortex that is oh so common – if I can’t do this perfectly and be a smashing success at it, then why even bother?
Oh health coach woman!  Silly you!
I know better.  And that’s why I’m back.
I’m going to post regularly again here in 2013, and while I’m going to do a kick butt job of trying to educate and inspire, I’m also going to let my human side show through too.  I’ve shared my flaws and trials here, but only if they were relevant to health and wellness.  I’ll continue to do that, but I’m also going to share more other stuff too.  Personal trials and vulnerabilities that you might be experiencing too.  We can learn and grow together.
I’ll be back tomorrow with more and better.  Thanks to all of you who are still reading.
