I may have gotten behind on my projects to make and post about.
I may have ignored my sweet 4-month-old son more than once due to obsessing over my blog.
I may be jealous of other bloggers who have 124 comments on a single post.
I may wonder about what I'm doing wrong that I don't have more followers.
I may feel defeated since blogging feels so much more fulfilling when others comment on my posts.
I may have a hard time staying organized in my in-law's house & it affects all other aspects of my life.
I may have given up on one or two things blogging-related because I'm out of energy 80% of the time.
I may be doubting myself and if I can really be a successful blogger.
I may have ignored the pile of clothes in the corner of my bedroom because blogging was the priority.
I may need to take a break already.
Really, I need to blog for me again. How did I stop doing that? I've only been doing this for a couple of months. Seriously, self?
It's silly that my self esteem can be so dependent on some strangers that I've never met and all I want is for them to think I'm amazing because of my writing and photographs and crafty skills. What have I turned into?
If you asked my brothers and parents, they'd tell you that I've always been a little
So I'm going to try this again.
Here's the main purpose of my blog:
I need to have a place to document my crafts and hobbies.
I need to craft and hobby because it's therapy for me.
And some potential perks that I need to not be so worried about:
If others think my content is good and want to follow me.
If I can one day earn money from my blog.
If I'll be the next Ree Drummond.
I'm going to be true to myself and recommit to doing this for me... Again.
Besides, how can I let anything be a higher priority than this spunky family?
|Yes, we all have the same hairstyle.|
So here I go again...
My latest project will hopefully help me to stay true to myself and my goals.
You'll see why on Monday.
