day one (again)

A lot has changed since I started this blog. I am married. I have a baby. I likely gained a few pounds, and then lost a few pounds, and then gained a few pounds back. I have more gray hair. And in a lot of ways nothing has changed. I am still searching. I am still seeking. I am still looking for the right path and most meaningful work that will fulfill a purpose that is greater than myself. As a mother, much of my happiness comes in the work I do with my little girl. Taking care of her, loving her, watching her learn, and grow, and smile and giggle. Filling her with love. That brings me greater joy than I could have ever imagined. But there is more there. There is more that I desire to do and discover and explore about myself, about the world, about humanity, so that she can see me as a living example of someone who never gave up on their life.
