Yes, yes, I know. It’s been absolutely forever since I last blogged. 4-EVA. And looking back at the year as a whole, my posts have been few and far between. I can assure you that it is not for lack of material! My days have been full of fun and challenges, ups and downs, new experiences and the comfort of routine.
Call it writer’s block, busyness, or the sheer exhaustion of raising three young children, or perhaps it’s been the age-old saying, “If you can’t say anything nice, don’t say anything at all.”
More than that, I believe it’s the perfectionist in me that wants every post to be better and more creative than the one before. But that false expectation has kept me from sharing the fun and the challenges, the ups and downs, the new experiences and the comfort of routine. And it has kept me from my favorite creative outlet—writing!
Well, folks, I want to keep it real. Not everything in life is pretty, and some days are pretty rough in this head (and this house) of mine. And though I do my best to focus on all that is good and beautiful (for there is plenty!), if you keep coming back you might catch glimpses of “bad” and “ugly” along with their sibling “good.” (No, those are not nicknames for my children!) But all of it is a part of the journey that makes up the whole of life.
Okay, now I’m rambling. All this to say, I’m banishing whatever has been keeping me from the keyboard.
I’m back, baby.
