Well. Sarah, the classic over-achiever, over-planner, optimist-idealist is as she ever was— full of good intentions. My poor blog needs my attention!!!
I came home from Alt Design Summit so enthused, full of ideas— how to blog better, blog more consistently, and blog with more internality— to make myself more accessible to my audience. I even created a blogging schedule, to try to keep myself on track. See? Blog dates, themes, time carved out to write each week, etc.
As you can see, I’m not doing so well right now. Good grief… how on earth does time move so quickly??!?
Maybe it’s a bad thing, that I’m not blogging as consistently, not sharing pictures as regularly. Or maybe not. Maybe it’s just another sign of this slowing down that I’m trying so desperately to implement into my life. Actually, my life is slowing down, whether I’m trying to implement it or not, and for that I am exceedingly glad. Never fear— “slowing down” doesn’t mean “shooting less” or “working less.” It means working smarter, establishing set routines and clearly-defined boundaries, and savoring the present instead of rushing forward into the future. I have several key people in my life helping with these things right now, and I’m so grateful.
It’s a very harrowing thing to stare oneself straight in the eye and see flaws, insecurities, and weaknesses. It’s also a very grace-giving thing, because it forces reliance on Jesus Christ. Just another reason to be grateful.
ALL THAT TO SAY… hoping to resume regular (or at least semi-regular) blogging next week! Hope you have a lovely weekend, friends.
