It’s been awhile since I’ve just written a post on a whim and lately I feel like I’ve let some things including this blog slide a bit. No bueno in my book! To be honest life has been a bit hectic lately. As there are no excuses but sometimes you need a break to get a little perspective on things. Thus I skipped over a Monday post on Memorial Day and decided not to beat myself up over it. It was much needed as Monday was a hectic day!
It got me thinking a lot about this blog and direction I want to take it..that of which I am unsure of at the moment. I love writing. I love reading other blogs. I love connecting with other bloggers around the world who love writing as much as I do. This leads me to my confessions as of lately. Honesty is the best policy and I cannot pretend to be something I am not. So why not lay it all out for you guys! Here are my recent confessions from a little perspective…
I confess that I haven’t been staying on top of my editorial calendar…over the last month. This is horribly not me. I am generally pretty organized and have my content planned out ahead of time. Maybe I need to take a step back and look at the bigger picture. Get inspired and isolate myself from social media. I’m seriously so sick of it…which leads me to my next confession…
I confess that I have NO CLUE what my blog niche is…I’m not a fashion blogger nor am I a beauty blogger. I am horrible at both of those things! I love writing about what I am cooking, where I am traveling, how my yoga journey is going and life overall. I guess I’d be a lifestyle blogger minus the normal fashion and beauty topics. I can barely style myself!
I confess that I’ve become frustrated with social media…mainly my personal accounts and it’s usually always other people being negative. Leaves a bad taste in my mouth and makes me question why I even have these pointless accounts. But then I get to my blogging groups on Facebook and realize why…it’s the community of other bloggers who support me and help me become better. But saying it’s definitely time for a social media detox is an understatement!
I confess that my yoga practice has fallen through the cracks a bit…blame it on a busy schedule or the fact that I haven’t exactly felt very yogi lately but I am thinking that I just needed a tiny little break. You can’t force things after all!
I confess that I am long overdue for a visit home to see family…being 2 hours away from them can be hard and with Judd working weekends I find it difficult to get down there. I feel pretty guilty leaving him here to work and come home to leftovers and an empty house minus Gus. But lately I have been feeling a strong draw to go visit home and see my grandparents, visit my aunts and uncles and reconnect with my cousins. There has always been a part of me that feels refreshed to visit my hometown. But don’t get that confused with me wanting to move back which leads me to my next confession…
I confess that I don’t ever want to move back to my hometown…I don’t think I should explain it other than saying it would feel like a dead end.
I confess that I haven’t been eating too fantastically lately…I’ve been on a bit of a dairy binge. Not good for my lactose intolerance. Sometimes I rely too much on Lactaid pills to enjoy pizza or mac and cheese. The whole point of going lactose free was to feel better, healthier and get my diet right. I’ve got to adjust my focus and stay on track.
Well, that felt good! Sometimes it’s better to rant and rave all the crap out just to get the load off your chest. I feel a bit lighter now!
