You must be wondering where the HECK I’ve been these past 10 days.
I can explain…..
When I first started blogging, I had the lofty
ideals ideas that not only would I write every day, but everything would be either funny or brilliant or, on most days, both. Well, for the first couple of months, I wrote every day. I constantly had things to write about and things to say, some funny, some brilliant. The more encouragement I got from you lovely readers, the more I obsessed about what to write, the more I felt the pressure to write, the less I actually WANTED to write for fear of being trite and uninspiring. Sigh. That’s when things took a turn.
I see now how I just got in my own way. It’s one thing to be responsible, but if I want to enjoy myself and be inspired, I have to leave the goal for perfection behind. One day it’ll be a stirfry and a salad, one day it’ll be lasagna from scratch, you know what I mean? I have to allow myself that wiggle room. Then again, it’s very typical me. Sigh.
Maybe I need a schedule, that way I can only obsess for a few days a week and reduce the overall pressure. I’m still so new to blogging, I guess I have to spend a little time calibrating myself – find a rhythm that I can live with comfortably.
Don’t you worry, though, I’ll find my groove and then we’ll all be happy! Slow and steady wins the race, right?
Either way, I’m happy to be back. 🙂
