Hi, I’m Tara.

What started out as a private blog to document our adoption journey has evolved into my journey through therapy, spiritual awakening and whatever I feel like writing. Without our struggles to build a family, I’m not sure I’d be waking up, and for that I’m grateful.

And So it Continues

My wholly unfocused and raw blog will live on. I didn't think I would completely leave blogging when I considered my hiatus, but I wondered how long I would need away. I often struggle with feeling spread thin among my various online time-sucks and wonder how much I really need them. I'm in several groups including the transracial adoption group that I hardly ever read, even though I need to, not to mention another adoption group where the same thing happens. I'm currently on a Beach Body challenge having bought the Body Beast DVDs, and made the lovely Josey my coach. I'm on the Eat to Perform forums learning how to eat to properly fuel my body, and there I log every single workout, all my Polar Loop stats and my My Fitness Pal data. Then there's the Jazzercise instructors group that I visit on occasion, plus a whole bunch of other groups that I hardly ever look at. Add in trying to keep up with the well over 100 blogs I follow on Feedly and there's not enough time in the day for this information overload. I stay up too late messing around on my computer, not connecting with S, and not getting enough sleep.

There are days when I want to go back to landlines and dial up internet.

Thank you for your kind comments regarding this blog. I know that most people (myself included) don't comment a lot these days. I'm making an effort to leave comments more regularly on others' blogs, but I'm not that successful, and I'll wager that many people find themselves in the same boat between finicky phones and not enough time.
