Hey hey! I’m just popping in to say I’ve missed this blog thing a little. Also, I’m not the type to let go of things in silence. I have to talk about stuff! Not that I’m “letting go” of anything…but maybe just a little.
To explain (because I have a need to do that) I haven’t been feeling the need for this blog. I’ve been back and forth so many times as to whether or not I want to keep it up and for some odd reason, it’s the hardest decision!! So, I’m not making any decisions for now. At the same time though, I have to be authentic. I’m not going to be throwing up a bunch of posts if my intentions aren’t genuine and my heart isn’t in it. Here is what I’ve come up with about my lack of motivation to blog:
- I started My For Real Life because I was excited to have the outlet, use some of my creativity, and meet new people. As a stay at home mom, I felt like it was going to be the perfect hobby – and it was. However, life has gotten busy the last few months. I got a part-time job. I go to group/individual therapy. I have two little boys to take care of. I have a husband and marriage to focus on. I have ME to take care of as well, something that I neglect too often. And as I started to really focus on all of those things I just listed, this blog went down in priority. My job, family, friends, and self-care are what I choose to consume my time with and eventually I no longer felt the NEED to have a blog as an outlet. Without the need I have little desire.
- Being active was a big part of this blog up until I injured my knee. I’m not sure if I expressed it enough, but that really sucked. I enjoyed my running/work out posts and once I stopped doing that, I lost a lot of inspiration for this blog. On this subject, I’ve been going to a physical therapist for Patellar Tracking Disorder. I finally figured out the issue and hope to fix my knee alignment asap.
- I’m not sure blogging is my thing. 2015 for me was all about taking risks and saying YES to opportunities. I don’t regret starting this up and giving it a shot because I’ve had a lot of fun, met wonderful people, and learned more than expected. I love trying new things! However, after trying it, I’m not sure if it’s my thing. Running is my thing. Yoga is my thing. Russian is my thing. Cooking, crafts, gardening are also my things, however, writing/blogging is still questionable on being my “thing”. I think I just need more time to decide! I’m not calling quits yet.
Having now explained myself, I feel much better about going on in my silence. Expect to hear from me again though. I have a feeling I will figure things out eventually. Until then!
P.S. I STOPPED DRINKING DIET COKE FOREVER!!! (it’s only been 10 days, but still, 2016 IS A HUGE YEAR FOR ME.)
