On a More Personal Note
Its been an incredibly busy month, at least busier than I had expected it to be. I’m sorry that I sort of disappeared once the election results came in, but, no, I did not go and hide under a rock, nor did I move up to Canada.
I’ve actually been reassessing things lately. What is important?
Its a great question to ask. There is a lot going on. In regards to the blog, I am writing up my honeymoon post, as well as looking into kicking up the Mortal Sin series again. I am also prayerfully discerning what to put in for my conversion story, and what not to put in. I have publicly told my story before, but, I’m unsure what I should put out for “public viewing”. Since I am not a professional Catholic theologian/author/blogger, etc, I’m not sure how to put it out there.
I also started up a Facebook Page for this blog. You can find the link here. I did this more or less to help get more exposure to the blog, as well as to start a community for everyone to get together and discuss. Not to mention, if something is a “hot topic” it always provides good fodder for the blog.
So, in regards to the blog, I’m trying to get more posts up. I really am. I got sick over Thanksgiving break and was really hoping to get a couple of good solid posts up. I know its important to get good material up as well as posting regularly to keep traffic coming back.
On the side, I’ve started a Young Adult group through my parish and the neighboring parishes as well. It is strong with about 20 members. I am planning on giving a talk next month on how to “Learn, Live and Love the Faith”. I’m very excited about this, and of course, planning this talk is taking a bit of time. I’m wondering if it’d be a good idea to record the talk in case it turns out to be great. Or is that my ego going?
I have a side gig that I’m trying to grab motivation to work on, in between trying to get daily prayers, chores and everything else in, without losing my mind in the process. Some days I feel like I waste a lot of time and that time would have been “better spent doing something else”, but at the same time, my sanity is important.
Married life is going well. It is great! I really do enjoy it, even though it comes with its own unique challenges and obstacles that I wasn’t expecting. The changing dynamic of the relationship is still taking some adjustments, but I believe we are doing well.
So, that is a quick update on all that is going on in my life. I’m hoping that things “settle down” soon, but I’m beginning to believe that that won’t happen until I hit retirement. So, here’s to offering up the sufferings to my friends, family, and of course, you!
