So Yesterday, I did something that I very rarely do. I dug down deep and pulled out thoughts and feelings that I knew if I did not, I would wade through them on the daily. It is good to just be able to sit and write things. My mom has given me multiple journals throughout the years and always told me, Even if it’s just a few words, Write something. But the thing about journals for me is, they become more like something you are forced to do everyday. You skip one day .. okay no problem, then you skip two .. then it becomes a week. They say it takes three weeks of repetition and if not.. the habit never forms.
One thing I feel is missing from that is the passion and determination to actually get down those thoughts and feelings. Without that, what is the point in it.. what is the point in doing anything for that matter if the passion isn’t there. Same goes for my blogging. With every break, Or at least blogging break, I have taken from SL, I’m thoroughly missed blogging. I’ve missed taking a creation and showing it in the best way I possibly can. I miss taking that picture and then applying a song, quote, or poem to it. But most of all, Is the one thing those closest to me miss as well: I miss my stories.
I miss writing about what is going on in my little world. I miss throwing every thought and feeling into words along aside a picture. I miss being vulnerable. When I first started blogging this is what I would do…. I feel like somewhere along the way I was captured in the mode of “Just get this post out.” Saying to myself each time, I’ll write in the next one. Over the past few weeks, I’m come to realize I can’t do that to myself anymore. I’ve dropped a mighty handful of incredible creators. Even some that were serious blogging goals for me… Simply because it isn’t fair to myself or them, to keep trying to put out something I’m not absolutely proud of.
So in doing of all that, I’ve decided to come back to why I started blogging in the first place. I am determined to make myself write again.. I want to feel again. I want to throw myself into every post not only in the photo but also in writing too. In two short days, My blog will be three years old. Thank you to all of you that have followed my journey along that way. I hope you continue to stick around. There will be more stories, quotes, poem, and most definitely songs…..
But the one liners, They’ve got to go.
Keep Smiling Y’all.
