It's no secret in the blog world that Becky who writes From Mrs to Mama is seriously awesome. Today she is having a link up for people to just...write. Sounds simple right? Yeah I thought so too.
Her post sure got my mind a brewing. In this little space of mine, we have been all over the place. I have been trying to figure out what I even wanted out of this little corner of the cyber world. Why I was even here. Why I put in the effort when barely anyone reads or comments. Why I kept coming back for more.
Then I remembered the simplest answer I could come up with. For me. That's why I'm here. I'm here to remember these little moments in life. Soak them up. Go back and remember them again and again. There was a time and still some times where I would write for other people. What they wanted to hear. What they wanted to see.
Boy did I get it all wrong. There came a time when I took a long break. Evaluated what the hell I was doing. And then I came out knowing I wasn't here to write for other people to "hopefully" like it. Even though of course I still do hope people like it, that just wasn't my main purpose.
Which comes to my next point. I adore connecting with you all from all over the world. The moment I see someone commenting to me, our lives the same, a moment the same, a little piece of life experience shared...I jump for serious joy.
But I'll be completely honest, many days I feel like this blog is a simple failure. Many days I feel like I cannot even compare to the blogs out there. Many days I feel like everyone is making best friends and flying across the world to see each other and then....well the questions come flowing. I begin to second guess myself and then find myself never blogging because I don't feel "good enough" to do it.
Then I wake the heck up with a nice cup of coffee and realize, no, I may not be the best of bloggers or writers but I love doing it so dang much that nothing will stop me from doing it. I love connecting with you all at different levels. I love sharing my heart. And I love not being perfect. And quite frankly, it just makes me happy.
So I am going to keep on keeping on and try to write from the heart more often. Be me. The me how has many ups and many downs. Keeping it real around these parts.
HAPPY MONDAY (and thank you Lord for our Presidents. I love having this day off!)
