inspiration come

I just got back from the movie, Julie and Julia with my friend, Jamie. I was inspired by Julie's drive to do something that stretched her to be a better person. I loved how Julia was always so positive. I assume she was truly like that....laughing or joking about when she could be angry, frustrated or sad. More than anything, it reminded me how nice it is to just write. just write. I used to do that a lot more often. In fact, I really miss it. Everything just comes out real when I write. no inhibitions, no judgement. I can just be me.

So, in lieu of this true story, I've been inspired to start writing again. Starting September 1st, I will blog everyday and end November 1st. So, two months of blogging everyday. Even if no one is reading it, I just want to start writing again...about anything. I've been non existent from the blogging world for a while. I was too busy having fun this summer. I guess blogs can be seen as a way to connect, an outlet, a brag platform, and for me, it's a starting point again to find the joy in writing.

I can remember in high school, we would have our 15 minute journal writing and the teacher would just write a topic on the board and we had to write about it. I'm going to do that. Each day, a new topic. If you have any suggested topics, please feel free to suggest. I'll decide what to write about but it will help me just start. Let the journey begin!!!

Before it starts, I'll have some posts about our summer fun. I better hurry though I only have a couple days. Before I forget, Jace's first day of preschool - he learned about coconut trees. :)

Wasn't that movie fantastic! We went for a girls night and all walked away uplifted (that hardly ever happens with movies now) and recharged to take on the world.

Writing topics could come from the top news stories on MSN or yahoo or maybe a word of the day. Whatever you end up writing about, it will be lovely to get an inside look at Stacey and what she thinks about. I'm looking forward to it.

I totally hear you on the writing thing. I miss it all the time and everytime I go back to writing I remember the benefits from it. I say, go for it girl. And I'll be reading it. :)

BTW, did you get my text after I missed your call on Monday night? We were out on a bike ride and didn't have our phones, sorry about that. I was bummed I missed it.

I look forward to some fun reading these next two months.
Some silly topics...
What is your take on this whole health care thing?
Would you rather rent or own a house? What is it like being a homeowner?
How was living back in T.O.?
How do you decide what to eat for dinner?
