Life is a series of starts and stops… beginnings and endings… a constant state of motion in which we are always moving somewhere and not quite in control of where that might be.  This is generally the place where time and space seem to stand still, even as life is clearly evolving full-speed ahead.

This blog has sadly been left unattended for months as my own life has ventured forth into new and exciting territory.  And now that I have given myself room to breathe, permission to explore and a fresh perspective from which to try on new pieces of my future, I am ready to begin again.

I have to admit that I am struggling against the part of me that thinks I should sit here and make a list of all the things I have accomplished in order to prove that my time away has been fruitful and productive.  But I am quickly reminded that approval is not what I seek and is the very part of me that I am working hard to tame.

What I will say instead is that I have forever been changed by quite a few things in recent months that will impact the rest of my life and the way it plays out.  By far the greatest of these changes has been learning first-hand that life is precious and doesn’t last nearly as long as we think it should.  And with that realization comes peace in the “not knowing” and surrendering my outcome in order to enjoy this very moment.

And I have much to enjoy.

A big part of my blogging experience to date has been findng my voice and figuring out what exactly I have to say to this great big world about me.  And in truth, the long-awaited answer to that question is… not a whole lot.  Because it’s really not about me.  My heart would rather write about what I care for most… people… and our connections to one another, our resilience, and our collective, amazing capabilities as human beings to live, to triumph, and to dream. 

I’m not even going to pretend to know what comes next, but I wouldn’t be surprised if this blog begins to reflect a new take on what Chasing Possible actually means.

For those of you who’ve waited patiently for new content… thank you.  And for those of you who’ve just arrived… I hope you’ll stick around for a while.

    Hey Bobbi was excited to see in my email this morning that you had a new post. Always refreshing to read what is happening with you.
    As spring has definitely sprung I am so happy to see and feel the warmth of the sun. This fall and winter was one of the hardest times of my physical life. But as always the hard times can be some of the greatest teachers.
    How is the house situation going?

  2. I cherish your thoughts and words and have been in a similar crazy struggle and I am now in walking distance of MY POSSIBLE.
