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.

    I feel exactly the same way. Still learning how to come back, to feel again, to be connected again.

    I couldn’t refrain from commenting. Exceptionally
    well written! I could not resist commenting. Exceptionally well written! I’ve
    been browsing online more than 4 hours today, yet
    I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for
    me. In my opinion, if all web owners and bloggers made good content
    as you did, the internet will be much more useful than ever before.
