Let me be real here. Last weekend I sat at my desk and looked over the posts I had lined up for this week. To my frustration they all sucked. That’s probably a little harsh but it’s how I felt. Instead of forcing each post to be worthy, I threw in the towel.
I decided to take the past few days off the blog. Instead of dwelling about it, I decided to step away for a little bit. Creativity isn’t constant and being able to acknowledge that is important especially as a blogger. For today’s Friday Five, I am sharing 5 truths lately. Here we go!
I needed a break from writing. As much as I love writing and blogging, I was overdue for a small hiatus. I try not to force creativity. If I feel that the words are not coming to me I step away from it. And that’s okay!
Making friends in a new area is challenging. It’s more difficult to make friends in a new town as an adult. Back in college it was easier to make friends with your classmates or in most cases meet people through group work. But with a full time job it can tough. I just downloaded an app called Meet-up. The app offers different meet-up groups in your town based on interests. So I joined a few. I’m excited to see what comes out of the experiences!
I think about kids daily. That’s probably the scariest thing to be honest about here. But this is after all a personal blog. Over the last few months I have been thinking more and more about kids. One could say I am at that age! Most of the girls I am friends with on Facebook are pregnant or have just had babies. It’s awesome! But does that mean I’m ready to drop everything now and get on that train? Not quite. I enjoy thinking about it but I’m know in my heart that I’m not there yet. It’s OKAY to feel that way!
As scary as moving out of state was, I’m so happy we did it. It’s amazing when you go through change and suddenly you realize just how much you needed it. We’ve been living in South Carolina for almost 3 months and it’s been the time of our lives! Before our move, things were chaotic. Judd was working horrible hours and was stressed to the max. I felt stuck in my job and unhappy with Jacksonville in general. Moving brought so many good things. A new home state. A new job I enjoy so much. Judd is really enjoying his new job and his normal hours. Change is good!
I miss my friends and family. Moving to South Carolina was the right thing for Judd and I to do. It doesn’t change the fact that I do miss my friends and family from time to time. If only they could get on inventing teleportation!
