I got a notice yesterday that it was time to renew my web hosting for momsempowered. For a minute I wondered whether it was worth paying for since I have not written, other than Facebook posts, in a long time. I don’t know if anyone has visited here in a while. But I’ve decided this place is worth keeping, not just because it holds many thoughts from my heart and my history, but also because keeping it gives me a space to share and create again. It matters. It doesn’t matter how long we are away from creating, we can always choose to pick up the pen, paintbrush, or whatever tools of the trade we’ve neglected, and start again. I don’t know how often I will do it yet, my posts could be two days or two years apart. But I’m leaving the door open, and just affirming it matters gives me more courage to begin again.
