Instead of a style post, I thought today I’d share some of my recent reflections.
This post will bring you closer to my inner circle. If you are reading this blog, you have probably seen my social media posts and have come to understand my personal style. But, of course, there is so much more to a person than what she divulges on Instagram and Facebook.
The Mysticism of Blogging
Blogging is interesting: it is a platform to share information and inspire others, but it is also a space to connect with people you’ve never met.
Many of these people come back week after week to find new content, explore new perspectives, and maybe even learn something.
I know that as a blogger, I am always reading and exploring to bring new content to the table.
Sometimes this is an easier task than others because inspiration isn’t constant; when ideas arise, content writes itself.
But life gets busy. I work full time as a middle school Language Arts teacher, I’m a mom to two little boys, and a wife to a very loving and supportive husband. I’m also a daughter, a sister and a friend.
Sometimes it’s tough to juggle all of these things.
Sometimes it’s tough to find time for me.
Filling my Bucket
This blog is my release. It’s an opportunity to learn new things, determine my perspective, and challenge myself. I get just as much out of it as I hope you do.
When I first started it in January of this year, I didn’t really know where it was headed. I knew I wanted to write and I was developing a love for photography, so I thought, why not give blogging a try. Little did I know how many buckets it would fill for me.
And yes, it time consuming.
There are many days when the laundry is piling up, the kids have t-ball, and dry shampoo is my savior.
And coffee. Can’t forget the coffee.
But don’t we always make time for the things we care about?
It’s amazing what we can accomplish in a day when we want to. I’m not saying we should be stretched to our limits, but a typical weekend day has so much potential.
Be sure to find time, or rather make time, for the people you care about, and the things that make you happy.
Every day is a new start. Go out of your way to enjoy it. You won’t believe how it will change your perspective.
Really, Thank You.
This blog means so much to me. It’s more than just a project. It’s a passion. And it’s growing.
The more active I am, and the more I learn, the more driven I am to make it better…for all of you.
If it weren’t for you, reading this blog, liking and commenting on my posts, and sending me messages of support and feedback, this blog would merely be a personal diary.
It might exist, but in a much less meaningful way.
I’d love to hear the things you want to know more about.
Is there a topic you’d like for me to cover? A trend you want to see styled? A motherhood topic you need some perspective on? A personal issue you are dealing with that you think other women could relate to? Blogging and social media tips? Let me know either via comments below, Instagram DM, or Facebook message.
If you’ve made it to this point in the post, thank you. Thank you for sticking by me even in my infancy as a blogger. It’s your support that makes this blog so rewarding.
Thank you for connecting with me. You’ll never know how much it means.
Until next week,
