After a little break from the blog world I’ve decided it’s time to come back
Why the break? Well – to make a long story short – I realized that I needed to take some time to refocus on my life and hobbies (other than blogging.) To be honest, I was starting to become a bit obsessive with the ‘blogger world’ which ultimately lead to unhealthy problem of comparison and ungratefulness.
“I wish I was a better photographer. I wish I was more toned. I wish I was as disciplined as her. Her house is more put together than mine. I wish I had children. Why don’t I live in New York City…complain complain complain.” This had been my mindset over the past couple of months and it isn’t who I wanted to be (nor was it appealing to those closest to me.)
I think it’s easier than we may think to take something we enjoy (such a blogging/social media) and allow it to consume our thought life.
That said, I’ve recognized it as an issue in my life and started pursuing other areas in my life that make me happy (and make me feel more productive!)
I love blogging. I love the connections I’ve made. I love how a similar passion/hobby can unite women from all around the country (and the world too!) I think that blogging is a great way to make friends, release stress, and relate to others – I just need to make sure I moderate the amount of time I spend doing so
Now for some more little life updates…
- Spend-ing time at the farmer’s market on Saturday mornings!
- Enjoy-ing outdoor workouts.
- Lov-ing my job with the kiddos!
- Enjoy-ing an afternoon with our community at the Clintonville Arts & Music Festival.
Life Lately (According to my Android)
(Top Left to Bottom Right) Devotional time at Starbucks in the morning, my sister and I in Cincinnati, my sister and I (again) at the Japanese Steakhouse, indulgence at The Grand Finale in Cincinnati, more indulgence at Jeni’s ice cream to celebrate the end of summer, pretty flowers at Whole Foods, gotta have a selfie, chips and salsa at Local Cantina for date night, bees in nature, rereading Harry Potter books for my Fall Bucket List!
