I've been in kind of a writing funk lately.. and maybe just a funk in general. I couldn't figure out why and then it kinda hit me.. I've been spending so much time on this little ol' blog that I think I may be forgetting to live. You know, the kind of living that does not involve a laptop or an iPhone... does that kind of living exist anymore?.. and how can I expect to have anything to write about if I'm not experiencing anything? and although I'm seeing great results on my blog, those results aren't the same in real life. When I'm not working, I'm blogging. When I'm not blogging, I'm working.
I've noticed recently that most of the time that my husband and I are home together, he's playing video games and I'm on the computer. We could be in the same room but not speak for hours..It was never like that before. And I don't want it to continue to be that way. Saying that out loud (or typing it) makes me realize that maybe it's a bigger issue than I even thought.
I started this blog as kind of a virtual scrapbook to collect and share my thoughts, obsessions, photos, etc... Not to gain a million followers. Not so that it could take over my life.
Don't get me wrong- I love blogging. I love what I've learned about myself. I love the amazing connections that I've made. And yes, obviously everyone wants a million followers (let's be real). I'm just saying that's not why I blog. Because let's face it guys, I have blog friends who I love, but I also have real life friends, and a husband, and a sweet puppy. And real life comes first.
I'm going to try to disconnect so that I can reconnect.
I could write a big(ger) long(er) post here, but Kim has already said everything (else) I want to say and feel.
