Blogging is a funny thing.
There are days when I don't really feel like talking much, but simply share some photos with you and call it a day. And yet there are days when my fingertips move around the keyboard like ballerinas dancing to the Nutcracker.
Similarly, there are days when I know that just being myself is good enough. There is no pressure to produce, no pressure to keep up with the next big blog.
And then there are days when I feel like I 'need' to post this and that, for fear that I wont be current enough. Do you ever get that feeling? When you feel like you have to 'beat' everyone else to the punch because if you wait one more day, someone else will post 'your' idea?
That feeling sucks away the joy of blogging for me. The thing is, one can't always be the innovator, the maker of the next big thing. It really is too much pressure to put on oneself and yet, I do it to myself constantly.
As I walked down the aisles of a home decor store today, I found myself becoming increasingly filled with 'want' and 'need' to have. I started to feel agitated and almost overstimulated by the plethora of things that I 'needed' for our home. How easy could it have been to fill a cart with my 'necessities' (most of them for the sake of blogging).
I have been so 'inspired' of late to decorate the house for Christmas, yet it's not even November. Which makes me question if my 'inspiration' arises from that 'need' to be first,
or the true desire to welcome the season.
Have a beautiful day!
p.s. Enjoy your Halloween and please keep your kiddies close and stay safe.
