I felt extremely inspired tonight to write this post. I feel like I have been missing from my blog for a while and I have missed it. Waiting for my inspiration and creativity to show its lovely face again.
After having read my very first Ordinary Moments Post and seeing old photos and past thoughts I feel so blessed and I’m reminded of a lot I may have forgotten recently.
It has been a while since I have written an Ordinary Moments Post, and that makes me a little sad because it was the first linky I ever joined in with and it was when I first met Katie online, who I adored from the first blog post of hers I read.
I haven’t been a very good blogger recently. I have let all the not so fun more serious ‘blogging’ side of things get in the way and focused solely on that. I don’t think anyone will ever be able to anticipate the amount of work that goes into running a blog and keeping up all the amazing online relationships.
I feel very lucky to have met so many wonderful woman (and men) here on the Internet. Some of you will never know just how much you not only inspire me but are able to make me smile day to day. I love blogging, I love everything about it, and I wouldn’t change a moment on this journey so far. I have had the pleasure of so much here and I never want it to stop.
I put my perspective eyes on often because it is hard online as it is in life to get swept away with comparisons and doubt. But perspective is so important because it grounds me and brings me back to earth so to speak. It reminds me of my intentions here.
Yes I have been lucky to make a business out of my blog and I’m thankful for that but that is not why I started. In all honestly it feels a little serious calling it a business because it is so much more then that. I am passionate about it and more then anything I enjoy it. So all the other stuff is a complete bonus. I started blogging to document our fast paced lives (sometimes slow too) and to have the opportunity to be creative and thoughtful with my words and my photographs… everything else followed.
I will be honest I have felt somewhat uninspired to write about our lives and my children as much as I used too recently and thinking about that now makes me sad because they are my whole world. And just tonight been able to look back at my very first Ordinary Moments Post I am washed with emotion just seeing my two children so little and reading about our lives at that point. How time changes everything. How fickle is life and how it changes in a blink of an eye.
There is so much I have learnt in the last two years and I feel so much that I have accomplished is thanks to this lovely blog of mine and you wonderful people I have met here. I want to continue documenting it all. I feel like our lives are only just beginning and we have so many exciting adventures awaiting us. Having you all here for the journey makes it a lot happier and brighter so thank you, sincerely.
P.S. Here is to having my creativity and inspiration back…
