Real Life > Blog Life

 
If I could spend my nights do anything, this would be it.
After many busy weeks, and weekends, I'm ready for this on repeat for the next three weeks, but seriously, staying at home and sitting by the fire. Seriously nothing sounds better.

When feeling guilt about blogging (and lack there of), I have to remember to keep things in perspective.  Real life > Blog life.  And as much as I enjoy using this as a resource, outlet, and crowd curating space, nothing quite tops the day to day moments that I think make my life so special.

So yup, the past few weeks of content may have been poor, I still struggle with the dichotomy of blogging, and finding a good balance.  But that's okay, because I've been overwhelmed by real life anyways.

Sometimes I guess you just can't do every last thing you want to do. You have choose to do the things that bring the most joy to you, and share the joy you have made and found with those around you.

It's so important to realize and remember that it's not about the followers, sponsorships, or number of comments, it's about what you get from it. And while I know you'll only get what you put into it, you can't miss the moments that might mean the most long term.

I'm still a work in progress. 
This space is still a work in progress.
Someday (soon?) I'll figure it all out.

  1. I'm with you 200%. I've been meaning to reply to your email about swapping posts for like a week now. And look, I still haven't gotten around to it. But I feel like you get it. Real life takes priority, especially when you're lucky enough to get some priceless down time

  4. Agreed my friend! It's always important to remember what pulled us into blogging in the first place and that's what makes it awesome. Hope you enjoyed your spontaneous date night! ;)

  5. I completely agree with you! It's so important to remember that this is a hobby/outlet and you't let real life pass buy because of it :)
