It would be easy to tell you that I’ve been far too busy lately to write any posts. Not enough time in the day, writer’s block, whatever. Truth be told I did start a new job 3 months ago. Truth be told I have been travelling quite a bit in this new role. I’ve lost two suitcases so far damaged beyond compare by the rough handling at the airport. Truth be told I have been exhausted.
However, If I’m honest with myself and with you, there was always a bit of time that could have been found to write. I could have written on the planes to and from my various destinations. I could have carved out a few minutes during my morning cup of tea. I could have, but fact is I didn’t, and a host of unrealized posts remained stuck in my brain.
Posting was daunting. It required more work and effort, which after a long day in a new role, often in a new place, and I didn’t have in me. Because I forgot why I started all of this. I forgot why I chose to write a blog about beverage and celebration. I forgot my why.
Cheerswith was started to celebrate all the brilliance that life brings our way. It was started to share and discover new beverages, beverage history & culture, and how what we enjoy drinking, from Apple cider to Zinfandel, came to be. But is wasn’t just to share my passion of beverages. It was to celebrate the reasons to raise a glass. To in effect, celebrate the moments worth toasting to. Grand moments. Small moments. Personal victory moments. Hell, I will cheers to just getting out of the bed if that’s the best the day brings. It’s about finding moments to celebrate in each and every day.
I lost sight of that briefly. I forgot to take a breath and find something, anything to raise a glass too. I apologize.
So revitalized, refreshed, and will a freshly filled glass, I raise the next round to the why of Cheerswith. To you, my delightful readers whomever and wherever you are. To continuing to celebrate all the ways you raise, clink, sip, guzzle, drink and most affectionately cheers!
Celebrating all that we raise, sip, guzzle, clink, drinks and most affectionately cheers with!
