Where Have I Been?

Recently, I’ve made one of the biggest moves of my life to Europe. I traveled over 14 hours with my three toddler children to get to this beautiful country which was one heck of a journey. I mentioned in my previous posts about my husband being in the military and Germany happened to be one of our first duty stations. We got pretty lucky. Lately, i’ve really been off my A game with posting. Between trying to get settled into my new home and still adjusting to this 6hour time difference I didnt realize how distracted I had gotten from my blog until my husband asked me “whens the last time you’ve made a post?”. Reminding me that I needed to stop being lazy and get with it!

I didn’t know where to begin again. I was lost. It was like I was on a roll one moment with so much inspiration and then the next i had writers block. I had no motivation and I realized I needed to change my enviornment or listen to some inspirational podcast or something. Good writing takes time. And i didnt want to just throw anything together and publish. I needed that push again. Writing takes great effort, the right intentions, time and figuring out the perfect words to begin your first sentence.

Have you ever got discouraged when doing something you love by just the process itself? Like, wow this is not getting to where I want fast enough. Or just seeing other successful bloggers in their prime and everything seems to just be going super slow for you? Thats the feeling I felt. I just needed to realize nothing comes easy and as long as I have a positive INTENTION blogging can bring me incredible opportunities which means to grow my blog organically and put genuine love into it. I have to embrace this time when possibly no one is reading it, and focus on the growth of myself as a blogger before focusing on the growth of the blog itself. My current mindset is to use this blog as my creative space and to do something I can enjoy.

I will, for sure, be posting at the most two times a week just depending on how much more interesting my life gets. The enviornment right now when it comes down to social media and blogging you feel like you have to do something a certain way, or write a certain way just to stand out. Things are so different now.. BUT I’m just navigating the waters and trying to figure out what feels right for me.

I think that is the key to successful blogging: doing what feels right for you.
