That is the question that has been whirring around in my head the past few weeks. The last time I was on my little space was 3 weeks ago, and in both mine and the blogging world that’s a very long time
If I’m to be completely and utterly honest, I didn’t think I’d be as affected by changing jobs as I have been. It’s going really well and I’m enjoying every minute, but with moving to full time and losing my precious Wednesdays I’ve really struggled with my little online diary as well as looking after my family, house, dog and life admin, and when I get home from work most nights the last thing I’ve been wanting to do is sit and be on here
After going back and forth in my head for a few weeks I decided to take a step back, not really knowing where I wanted to go with my little space to write but knowing I needed to put it all into perspective
You see, I like writing on here, it’s my creative outlet, my therapy and my second home. It’s quite literally one of my favourite things to do and I know I can’t just ‘give it up’. The problem is I’d got myself into such a forced routine that I spent most of January and February working myself up about ‘needing’ to be constantly present, and putting myself under my own unnecessary pressure
I realise now I’ve reassessed everything, that I don’t want to stop blogging but I do want to be realistic with the frequency in which I write and reduce the pressure I put myself under. I want to continue recording my memories, I want to continue talking to likeminded people and feeling inspired by them, and most importantly, I want to continue my personal outlet
So here’s to a better blog life balance, days where I don’t force myself to be ‘present’ but not present in my life, and not giving things up (we’ve always said I’m a determined little being……) – I hope you stick around for the journey!
