Musings on personal growth, books, motherhood, writing, and more. "Every hour is saved from that eternal silence, something more, a bringer of new things." – Tennyson
I hope you are all staying sane and taking care of yourselves in the midst of holiday busyness! I’m taking a break from work at the moment to do something fun: think about a new subtitle for my blog. I’d like it to be more descriptive. (It was “Learner, Thinker, Writer, Life Enthusiast.”) Here’s what I’ve come up with so far (you can see that I love lists):
“Sarrah J. Woods: Introverted, Contemplative, and Enthusiastic Lover of Books, Writing, Cats, and Life”
That’s a lot to pack into a subtitle! Is it overwhelming? Maybe it’s too much.
(As you can see, I have a hard time narrowing my blog down to a single, simple focus. That’s just not me. At least, not right now!)
I chose the adjectives “introverted” and “enthusiastic” because I’ve been finding out that those are two really fundamental parts of my personality, and the more I embrace them, the better and truer to myself I feel. The adjective “contemplative” is also true, but not as fundamental; it seemed like a helpfully descriptive word for my blogging identity, though.
Speaking of contemplating, I feel overdue for some thoughtful posts, but right now they’re simmering. I know they’ll come bursting out when they’re ready!
For now, here’s another cat photo—and this one features all three of my sweet babies! I was trying to get them all to play with the string at once. 🙂 It sorted of worked for a minute. Then they slowed down, and Marvin and Murray just started watching Mallory, who loves playing with string far more than they do.
Happy holidays everyone!
I’m going to use this post as an ongoing, chronological “file” for my old blog subtitles each time I change them. I’m always open to feedback.
