My posts have been few and far between these past few months. I’ll be energized and charged about writing and sit and have nothing to say because I’m thinking about dinner, coloring with mini, or folding laundry. I haven’t been making it a priority to blog because I’m busy baking, cleaning the house or sitting on the couch for some downtime.
I haven’t taken the time to just sit down and write for myself. So for that I apologize. To me. And to you, my readers.
During a meeting at work recently, we had an icebreaker question to warm up the room a little. It was “when you were a child what did you want to grow up and be?” Someone said dinosaur (lol), someone said polictian (whoa), and I said writer.
It’s true. As a child I wrote short stories and loved reading fiction (lots of sci-fi and magic!) and as an adult I still do love those things. But I’ve noticed that I haven’t allowed myself much time for those things. And I’m going to change that (for real this time). I’ll continue with my mom posts, and incorporate more food posts (because I love food) and maybe include my baking projects too. I’m putting this out there for me, to hold myself accountable to sticking to what I said I’d do. It’s important for me to continue my creative writing and maybe I’ll incorporate some of my hand letting/sketches that Ive got tucked away. I told D this year, I wouldn’t hide my nerd side (all the Star Wars movies please) but I think this year will be the one where i open up more too, get back to the artsy things that run thru my brain all day and keep me motivated to continue to create.
