Today Deborah from The Monster In Your Closet posed a question on her facebook page asking, “If you could choose ONE of your blog posts you’d want to be read far and wide, which would it be?” The first post that jumped to mind was the “Letter to my Daughter…” that I wrote to Megan. Deb asked for us to link our posts under her question, and after I did I realized that I haven’t written anything for the blog in quite some time… Yikes! Not only has Deb prompted me to repost the blog I wrote to Megan on my own facebook page, but also to blog for a bit today. Thanks for the motivation, Deb!
I haven’t been blogging lately, but that’s simply because I’ve been living. I used to say that “life gets in the way”, but until recently I didn’t realize how horribly wrong that statement is. I love my life, and it’s certainly not in the way of anything!! I find myself annoyed at times because I can’t get to the computer to check email, facebook notifications, or blog. I’m too busy helping Mister build our HAM shack/Hobby room. We’ve been too busy reorganizing the garage, and I have a special project that I’m working on for Mister, and those things have had to take priority.
Wait, what?! I’m annoyed that I’m living life and its keeping me from sitting in front of a computer for hours?! Oh. My. Goodness. Last week this thought snuck up one me, and I felt like DiNozzo getting hit upside the head by Jethro Gibbs. Doing these projects and things around the house is me living my life. And I’m enjoying it fully! Blogging about it is just a bonus, and something I do purely for myself. I’ve no right to put pressure on myself, and beat myself up for not getting to blogging in what I consider a timely manner. What a silly thought, and yet something that I was allowing to make me feel very badly.
Having shared this little revelation, something that I’m sure most people are already aware of and face-palming themselves on my behalf, let me just say that I do have some blog posts to catch up on. And, they aren’t deeply profound. (Another pressure I add to myself.) They’re just posts about me, and Mister, and the kids, as we go about our simple life. And, when I have a moment, I’ll get to writing them. I can’t wait to share the project I’m working on for Mister, but that’s been incredibly time-consuming and will not be done for awhile. I also need to do the last Garage post, because that has been completely finished for a couple of weeks now. And it’s beautiful!!
Until then, I hope that you, too, are living your life and enjoying it! It’s our Dash, we have to make the most of it!!
