Again, again, again

When I was growing up in the Philippines, a common phrase we used to indicate a "do over" was "Again, again, again!" My kids will attest to the fact that I still actually use this phrase when I talk to them.

I celebrated my 42nd birthday in June this year.  For some odd reason, I had forgotten my age and actually thought that I was turning 43.  A few days before my actual birthday, I realized my mistake.  And what a joy it was to learn I got it wrong! It was like I was getting a whole year back. An opportunity for a do over.  This inspired me to reflect on some of the things in my life I would like to do over again.

This blog is one of them.  I've recently felt stifled by limiting what I present here on the blog.  Initially, I intended to keep this blog related to my writing journey.  However, quite a few of you know me personally, and know that my creative life is pretty varied.  So why not share that with everyone too?

So here we go.  Again, again, again.

From now on, in addition to what I already share, you'll see more posts about these:

Oh, and the blog has a new name.  It reflects how I approach life now... Everything with Love and Joy!
