Last week I had every intention of blogging each day – I even had a schedule of what I would write about. Then it hit me like a ton of bricks – I had absolutely NO desire to write. Looking at my list of topics and blog calendar did nothing but stress me out.
Then you add in a summons for jury duty (which I was thankfully excused from), a trip out of state so my husband could interview for a job, and visits from my inlaws and my parents all in the past 12 days and I wasn’t sure how I would even find time to blog.
I had been blogging daily since returning from SheSpeaks in July and I was in desperate need of a break. So despite a slight bit of guilt, I decided to take the week off – and guess what? It was glorious!
My week off turned into 12 days of no blogging and I didn’t miss it that much. You see, I know I’m supposed to write and eventually finish my book – but all this building platform and blogging every day has been more stress than I think I can handle during this season of my life.
I spent years yearning to be a mom. I prayed and prayed and prayed. I would dread going to work and dream of one day being a stay-at-home mommy. God answered all those prayers and I get to stay home with my Little Man. I can’t let blogging and platform building keep me from enjoying every single second of something that I longed for for so long.
I will still blog – but probably only 3 days a week (maybe less if something comes up- like trips to the pumpkin patch or the zoo). My first priority will be story time dates, finger painting, sticky fingers, and slobbery smiles and that’s absolutely okay with me!
