It’s no secret that I love to write. Over the years though, I have felt that people just weren’t interested in blogs any more. I saw bloggers talking about how blogging was dead and I just convinced myself that no one wanted to read traditional blogs anymore.
That might be true, but I never set out on this “blogging journey” with the intent for millions of people to read my stuff or to come to my page. I literally just shared things because I loved sharing. I loved writing and letting myself have a creative outlet of some kind.
Over the years I followed bloggers who said that in order to have a successful blog, you had to be doing “X, Y, & Z”. I wasn’t doing those things. So I slowly gave up. Over time, I convinced myself that this was never going to be “good enough” for anyone. But what is “good enough”? Who was I trying to impress? I started this blog for ME. I write for ME. I share things for ME.
I have had a lot of “come to Jesus” moments in the past few weeks/months. Some realizations of life, the bigger picture, what’s important, etc….
Something is telling me to slow down. Something is telling me to pour everything I have into being the best wife, mother, and homemaker I can be right now. I had a lot of really big plans for the next year. And something is telling me….just be. Be in THIS season right now. Pour into THIS season right now. Something is telling me to quit rushing to the next phase. We are HERE for a moment, and this moment right now is beautiful.
Blogging might truly be dead. People don’t read traditional blogs like they used to. But writing? Writing will live forever. And I shall continue to share whatever is on my heart on this page of mine. I am excited for that. I am hopeful that I will continue to share our season of life right now with those of you who want to read along. I am hoping to share more on gardening, share recipes we love, share about our life, etc…
All my love,
