Over the past couple of months I have been going through a bit of a health crisis. Faced with some potentially scary diagnoses (and still no firm answers yet), I have had to take stock of what I wanted my life to be for as much time as I have to live it. On that cliff edge you can leap off and hope you fly, you can stand petrified with fear or you can start to build a ladder down or a bridge across to whatever comes next. I chose the later.
I still don’t have all the answers I’d like as far as diagnosis goes, but I do know better now what I want from my life – and one of the big things I want to do more of is to write and start a vlog. So Modernish Life is rebranding (after 7 years with with “Modernish” moniker) – I can now be found across the internet at The View From Now – Twitter, Tumblr, Instagram and the blog itself now carry this new name. (And hopefully soon, so will a YouTube channel).
The name reflects a lot of what I have been going through the past couple of years – struggling with faith and loss, physical and mental health, branching out in new directions and wrestling with my ever present need to be in control. I have learned that as much as I want to plan my life out, as much as I want to be in control of all the things, the only thing I can truly do is be present in this moment that God has given me. This moment right now. And live it as best as I possibly can. So I still look forward with hope, but I am learning more and more to be grounded in the present. Hence, The View From Now. If you have already follow this blog, I am glad you’ve been along for the journey! If you’re new here I hope you’ll stick around to see what comes next. Thanks for coming with me!
