So I’m fully embracing the “fail” theme I started the year with and inadvertently taking breaks from the blog. That would be the failing at writing part. Honestly, I don’t feel any guilt over this at all. C is sleeping less during the day and going to bed later at night, so the little time I had to myself is now even littler. It just keeps going away. This means I have even less time to do things like drop you all a line or post a meal plan.
But I was telling a friend the other day that this place is my creative outlet, whether it’s through (attempting) to write, photography, designing….whatever. This is my creative upchuck on the web. I’ve embraced the fact that I will never be a “big” blogger with a marketing plan and social media prowess, but I think, in many ways, I’m really okay with that because that just feels like too much pressure. Even the two posts I wrote last year for “big” bloggers were enough to send me into near panic mode (partially because I’m no good at writing blog posts that fit into the build-your-readership guidelines).
I’m just not very good at putting myself out there.
At any rate, I haven’t forgotten about this space. I have so.many ideas for things I want to talk about. The main one right now is about how powerful apologies can be. But also, I’ve been ruminating about Rob Bell’s Love Wins, and, essentially, blowing up my entire belief system. I so want to write a post about that because it’s been mind-blowing to me. Eye-opening. Absolutely beautiful.
But at the same time, I want to give this idea of “love winning” its due course. I don’t want to be flippant or try to fit it into so many words because of the supposed short attention span of the world at large. I want to really put down what it’s done for me. How it has truly just changed my thinking. How it just makes so much more sense to me than the doctrines I believed for so long.
But…well…I need time for that. And I have very little of that these days. So instead, I just keep on thinking about things to post without actually posting anything.
Anyway, here’s a meal plan post for you after two? three? weeks of none. You can forget what I said about these not showing up on the homepage anymore. I changed my mind. I’ve been known to do that. [Read more…]
