There are days where I don’t feel like blogging. Today isn’t one of those days.
There are days where I don’t feel like taking pictures. Or making interesting meals (it’s cereal for dinner again). Or spending a lot of time writing/thinking. Today is definitely one of those days…
As much as I love it, blogging takes a significant chunk of time out of my day. Normally I don’t mind, but there are days (like today) where I don’t feel like spending a lot of time writing/editing/photographing. There are days where I would rather read other blogs, answer e-mails, and really take the time to connect with others.
So that’s what I’m going to do.
I’m going to abandon the idea that every post needs to include pictures.
I’m going to prevent myself from going back and reading/re-reading my post multiple times.
I’m going to ignore the feeling that I have to have a post up by a certain time.
I’m going to free myself from the idea that everything has to be done ‘just-so’.
I’m a perfectionist. I always have a blueprint in my mind of how things should look, and I continuously wear myself out trying to conform to that blueprint. But not today. Today, I’m tossing out the blueprint and giving you an honest-to-God, uncensored, unplanned stream of thought that took me around; mostly for my own selfish reasons. I have to prove to myself that I can break my own smothering rules – and I think I just did.
Happy Friday, loves 🙂
