Several years ago, I started blogging. It was at a time in my life where I was bored, I wanted something to do, something to engage in and I hoped that if I started writing I would inspire those that happened to read my blog.
I feel certain that most days I was lucky enough to accomplish this task and I really enjoyed the process. Even if my hubby thought I was ridiculous for posting to no one, haha, and he couldnt understand why I would want to spend my time doing something so weird.
Fast forward several years and I am still blogging. Engaging with my readers and hopefully still inspiring them as we go along.
I realized today or well, I have been noticing over the past year that I have been somewhat distracted with my blogging. With the changes I made in my business a year and a half ago, my blog changed too. I didnt find the time to write like I had been previously and frankly, I just wasnt sure what to write about.
With Interior Design being my business, I felt it was expected of me to write about Interior Design and all things related. But the truth is...I have found that to be really hard to do. Primarily because there are so many design blogs out there that do such a great job...what else is there to say??
And with Pinterest now, who needs more pictures of interiors? I have honestly been a little stumped to tell you the truth. So, most days, I dont write anything at all.
In my search this year for my authentic self, I have discovered that what I do best and what I think I should be doing are two differnt things entirely. THAT is precisely why it has been so difficult for me to create blog posts! If you arent being authentic, it just simply doesnt work. It's impossible really.
SO, here's to authenticity and finally realizing the power in who I am versus who I think I should be :) Here's to blogging and writing authentically and from the heart which so many of you appreciate.
