I stopped blogging. For a long time. And I forgot how to live in the real world. I know that probably sounds ridiculous, but I’m an introvert. I am actually quite happy to exist in my dream world, which is something like a cloud, or water, or something beautiful and flowing and nebulous like that. What I mean is that I don’t exist in time and space like regular people without some actual effort to do that.
For a long time, blogging and writing at my blog was the way I made that effort. I learned how to say, what to say, and even how to be through blogging. And after several years of not really blogging and putting my writing on the shelf, I feel… less real.
And really, I just feel… less. I’ve shelved something really valuable for my heart and my wellbeing (we won’t mention the wellbeing of my business), and I feel smaller – at a time when I’m actually experiencing tremendous growth.
So I’m starting fresh. I know I have said this before, mostly because I felt as though I was letting my readers – my friends – down. But I need this for me now. More than that, I want this for me.
My goal is to post at least once per week – maybe one journal-type post and one photography-type post. Something to keep me from simply spinning my wheels in between shoots. Something to help me begin. Something to move my thoughts forward so I can move forward into my life.
Okay, your turn. What helps you step into your life? Are you a blogger or a writer? What would you like to see at my blog? I’d love to know what brought you here.
