hey friends! its january, so that means i have to make resolutions. really, not my favorite thing to do. i am not a super introspective person, so i guess the practice of making resolutions is a good thing for me, to stretch me a bit. one of my resolutions is to blog more. but the funny thing is, i wrote down “blog more – ?”. like i am unsure if it should be a resolution or not! my husband has asked me a few times over the last couple years why i am still doing it, to make me really think through my reasons. and i haven’t had a great answer. i don’t have a business anymore, so i don’t blog for promoting my products anymore. and finding the time to produce good quality content has been hard. ok, thats probably a lie. making time for good quality content has been hard. i’m sure i could find the time.
we’ve been out of our last home for just over a year now, and in a rental house, and in the property finding/buying/house designing-to-build process for about 2 years now. i’ve mentioned it before, but it has felt like an emotional roller coaster through these 2 years – not overly difficult, but entirely unsettling. our rental has definitely felt like “home” but not the home i’d love to live in forever. while its in a beautiful area, its cold and dark (as in it doesn’t get good light), and just kind of blah. all this to say, i haven’t had a whole lot i’ve felt like blogging about because saying, “hey guys! it looks like we’ve found property! oh. never
mind” gets kind of boring after awhile.
so why do i feel like i need to get back to blogging? because i feel like i’ve lost myself a little bit over the last couple years. while i am pouring myself into my kids and my home life more, i am missing a consistent creative outlet, missing pushing myself to write more and create content, which forced me to be creative. so, here goes again, back to blogging. forgive me if i produce the most boring posts in the history of ever, because right now, i think i’m doing this more for me than anything else.
also on the property/house front, i am hoping to have some good news to share in the next week or so, but with the way things have been going, it may just be a bit longer…#cliffhanger
