Okay, I’m going to write one of those end-of-the-year, new-year-new-me, reflective posts we all love so much.
I always spend the last few months of any given year reflecting and preparing for the one coming next.
We all know how fast time has flown, right? I mean we blinked and Christmas was here and now it’s gone. In three months, I will have been married for one year. And it hasn’t been perfect. But it has been wonderful.
There have been many adventures. I have been assembling a team around me of support from positive, smart, talented, kind humans, all of them my friends, all people I admire and respect.
I’ve been stepping into my voice; accepting and embracing who I am. I enjoy philosophy. And I love the work I do. And the world needs more compassion.
I’m going into 2017 with a love and appreciation for the freedom to write every day. Yes, it’s freedom. Not only do I have access to ink and paper, but also digital screens and lights and keys that tap tap tap without much physical effort at all, really. And I can pick an hour, any hour I want in the day, and decide that in that hour I am going to write. I get to make that decision for myself. Decision making is freedom.
What is time, but a series of consecutive decision-making. Oh, and an outside series of events we don’t seem to have much control over.
It’s about zoning in. To your flow of movement. To the flow of movement that connects us all. Take a second and feel how connected we really are. The you who’s reading this in some time and some space is connected with the me who’s writing in this time and this space.
Writing is time travel.
Oh yes, we are reflecting. On how time flies. And again, if you’re still reading I thank you for your attention. Practice gratitude. It will become a guiding force in your life.
Gratitude and presence. We have to be more kind to ourselves and others. We have to be thoughtful. Speak to each other. Ask questions. Remember the answers. Learn something new.
I’m nearing the end of my writing hour. Thankful that my tea is still warm and the honey is sweet. Gratitude.
For my gifted husband and our families and friends. And for clients; who often also become our family and friends. And the ability to grow, like trees firmly rooted but infinite and immeasurable in magnitude. For freedom. For all five of my known senses. For access to food and running water and overlooked things like plumbing and sanitation services.
Time. Flies. But. It. Stands. Still.
Take your time in 2017. Be present and grateful. Set goals and work toward them. Write them down. It will be there for reference whenever you need a reminder. Like a syllabus.
There will be hurricanes and floods. Weather and Acts of God. And you will adjust.
Until next time,
Victoria Rae Moore

Howdy, i read your blog occasionally and i own a similar one and
i was just wondering if you get a lot of spam
responses? If so how do you prevent it, any plugin or
anything you can recommend? I get so much lately it’s driving me mad so
any support is very much appreciated.
I get some spam comments, yes. And with technology these days sometimes it’s hard to tell the real from the artificial. So I take each comment with a grain of salt and hope there is a genuine human on the other end. No plugins necessary.
Good article. I definitely love this site. Keep writing!
That’s awesome! Ever since I changed my mindset I’ve been able to connect with my inner voice so much easier. Thank you for the encouragement and for reading 🙂

Hello would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re working
with? I’m going to start my own blog soon but I’m having a difficult time choosing
between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m
looking for something completely unique. P.S Sorry for being off-topic but I had to

Aw, this was a really good post. Taking a few minutes and
actual effort to generate a great article… but what can I say… I put things off a whole
lot and never manage to get nearly anything done.
Thanks, Madelaine! We all know procrastination. I’m working on the “tap” method of acknowledging and releasing. If I notice I am not being productive or “productive enough” I am learning to just check myself rather than dwelling in disappointment. Celebrate what you’re doing well and do better every day. Have you tried using daily check lists?
Hello, I log on to your blog daily. Your humoristic
style is witty, keep up the good work!
Thanks for publishing this.
