Its been a cool minute since the last time I posted. (Like, almost a year...Yikes!) Truthfully, after the birth of my second, I was too tired to stay up late at night and work on my blog. I wish I could just project my ideas into the universe and it magically appears on here without the huge amount of effort that goes into running a blog. For me, it does not come naturally as I'm not computer savvy in that way. With every widget, slideshow, insert or what have you, I was ready to pull out all my hair! Or maybe I'm making excuses and being lazy about learning to navigate through it? Whatever it is, I need to snap out of it, if I ever want this blog to grow. Instagram in itself, I believe, is a blog and the only social channel that can really promote your style/brand. You can catch me there if not here!
As a mom, I feel like we put so much pressure on ourselves to accomplish multiple things at once, without realizing the burnout ahead. Add a full time job into the mix and the guilt about leaving my kids overcomes the soul. I want to do this, I want to do that, I have an idea for this, let's shoot that. But wait, what's for dinner? My kids haven't seen me all day so they need my constant attention. I try to enjoy every moment rather than let it stress me out because I know these years go by fast. It's hard when your OCD is as bad as mine! Haha. Loads of laundry can wait, dishes piled up in the sink can wait, rooms are a mess. Don't get me wrong my husband helps out, but we both are tired after work and we have about 4 hours to get it together before the bedtime ritual begins. I'm constantly learning on how I can better manage my time but it can be overwhelming. I'm so inspired by all the mom bosses out there who seem to have it all under control. They key is to be organized and that has always been a struggle for me. I've always been a list maker, but somewhere along the lines I've lost that. So writing things down has helped so much because "mom brain" is no joke!! Haha. So with all that said, where is there time for me? For Us? Blogging??
Well, I'm not perfect and I don't pretend to be. I just want to fulfill my creative heart in the best way I can. Ok, enough with my boring rant! I just wanted to be open about where I'm coming from.
Thank you for following along with me on this journey through here or Instagram and being patient. My goal is to post more often, like once a week, so please let me know in the comments below what your interested in seeing or shoot me a DM on insta! In all seriousness, I intend to come up with a schedule and pour my soul into the creative process as much as I possibly can. Let's see where this year will take me!
