After many weeks of soul searching, I think I'm finally ready to move forward with my blogging, it's been hard. Would I continue? Would I give up? Would I be able to free myself from this constant need to compare myself as inadequate against other bloggers? The answer is yes, I am ready to commit to blogging at whatever level I can at a time, I've realised that for me this might be an evolving process.  Although my new job is exhausting and takes up far more time and energy, it has given me a new lease of life.

I'll never be happy that I can't spend more time and effort on my blog, I'll never be content that it's not even close to being anywhere as professional looking as my perfectionist self wishes it to be, but I am ready to let go of this and accept it for what it is.  I love blogging, I love my blog and I'm now right back where I started, writing posts for me and my family.  Projects, activities and recipes that are our lives, striving to get as much out of every weekend as possible, and enjoying every minute.

I've missed you, 'word of the week'

  1. A new lease of life sounds pretty good and if it allows you time to re-focus on other things in the blog, even better :) I have spoken to a few bloggers who have opted for exactly this approach, me included. Enjoy squeezing every moment into your weekends and enjoying every minute.

  2. Yay! It all sounds good and good to see you back and so positive with it, it'll be fine :) x #wotw

  3. And we've missed you, too! Blog because you enjoy it, comparison is always the thief of joy. Glad you've got a new lease of life and feel ready to come back :) Thanks for sharing with #WotW x

  4. Glad you've worked things out and come back. Blogging should be about what you enjoy x

  5. You sound so positive about things now! I am so pleased! Welcome back! x

  6. Don't be too hard on yourself. If it helps write out what you'd like to do with your blog each day and use a tick list. Sounds like you've already made a start by working out your reason for blogging. Above all have fun. tfs #WotW

  7. Oh I think we've all been there, I know I have. But Blogging is about recording your life, capturing memories whatever they may be (good times, recipes or just talking out loud) so enjoy it. Someone once said to me Blogging is about evolving, and the posts you write today will probably feel strange when you look back at them in a months time, and your future posts too. So Blog in the moment, when it suits and don't worry about the past or the future
    best of luck with your Blogging journey
