Where we’ve been…
My lack of posting over the last few years is embarrassing. There has been a lot that I wanted to share, but I let the dramas of life get in my way. Illness in my family and myself, mental and physical exhaustion from care-giving, and dealing with the deaths of two family members has been mentally draining.
Added to those stresses, was the self-doubt, the fear of failure, or doing this blogging thing “wrong.” Reading article after article of how-to’s, must-do’s, and “rules for success,” got overwhelming. So much so that I let it stop me from doing what I enjoy.
I came across this quote on Facebook that hit me hard:
Stop thinking about what could go wrong and start getting excited about what could go right!!!
It was a light bulb moment for me. Such a simple idea, yet it inspired me to stop worrying about whether I’m “doing it right” and just do it!
Where we’re going…
I will be sharing all of those ideas and stories I have had and celebrating the good things in our lives. We have several DIY crafty projects in the works that were put off for far too long. I can’t wait to delve into creating again, to share it with you, and to see what YOU are creating!
I’ll also be sharing my experience with being a full-time caregiver for my Mom, who is living with Alzheimer’s, and how our dogs help her in her journey.
Lastly, the animals. There are so many animals and their stories I want to celebrate and share with you. (If you have an animal you would like featured, please email me!) I will also be featuring puppy mill survivors as I have in the past. One of the initial reasons I started this blog was to share the benefits of rescue and adoption, and the truth about puppy mills and disreputable breeders. I’m active in advocating against puppy mills and pet stores that sell puppies. I’ll be sharing how you can help here spread awareness about puppy mills here, and at www.dogsuncaged.com.
Delia and Chewy are excited to get back to trying new recipes, sharing our favorite products, and going on pet-friendly adventures!
Thank you for reading and I hope you’ll continue to follow our adventures.
