The Sails Are Up, But We're Not Moving
Hello, hello! I've been a bit silent around these parts lately, which goes against all of my hopes and dreams for this blog this year. Ok, that might have been a little overly dramatic, but I've definitely not stuck to my goal-- blogging every week day. Things got crazy at the beginning of this month with the new line of cards, and so it just fell to the wayside.
If I'm being honest, I also haven't felt motivated to blog. I consistently posted every day for two months, and I sincerely felt as if most days I was yelling into an abyss. While I absolutely love writing and there is some reward in that on it's own, it also feels extremely unrewarding to spend an hour or two on a piece knowing that only a handful of people might actually read it. I wrote a few weeks ago about how it seems like the community aspect in the blogging world no longer exists in the same way that it did five years ago. And I still find that to be true. It feels as if you either have it or you don't. And there's not really any explanation as to why or why not you have "it." The sails are up, but I'm not moving anywhere-- I'm stuck in the same place I was five years ago, three years ago, and even two months ago.
With all of that being said, I felt like these past two weeks have been a good reset. It's given me the chance to step back from something that was beginning to feel frustrating and empty and focus on something that was inspiring-- the new line of cards. And in that time away, I feel as though there's a lot behind the scenes that has been just as inspiring-- meeting up with other creative women who are also trying to find their way, the start of the new spring season and the beautiful weather it brings, new routines, and new activities taking place.
So for now, I'm going to enjoy this Friday, and I'll see you on the blog sometime next week. Hope you all have a great weekend!
