Hello! It’s been a while since I posted here on my blog. Life has been good.
I sort of lost my “why” for blogging. It had nothing to do with lack of content. I had a lot to write about but just lost interest. Although, I never lost interest in other people’s blogs. I love reading what others have to offer.
When I began blogging, I didn’t care much about monetizing my blog and still don’t. That was never my drive or reason for blogging. I am certainly not opposed to it and may begin to move in that direction in time.
My husband and I own a real estate business and I’m a contractor who works as an Educational Consultant. So needless to say, I’ve got my hands full with that and four kids.
Through all of my indecisiveness, I never wanted to give it up completely. There is no better way to describe it other than I was stuck. One of my challenges is that I am very private and there are times when I feel vulnerable sharing. I experience an internal struggle over this because I believe we are called to share our gifts. I’ve received so many blessings in the past few years why wouldn’t I want to encourage others by sharing my experiences. I enjoy talking to people. So here I am.
There are a few things that I am decisive about and that is my family, my faith, my work, being creative, encouraging others as well as engaging with people in a meaningful way.
I’ve come to a point where I need to make a decision about my blog. I had a heart to heart conversation with my husband recently while out on a dinner date. So here are a few snapshots of that conversation….
I asked for his thoughts about the current state of my blog and my feelings around being stuck. When you ask for feedback, you have to be ready for the response. He basically said that I have a lot of talents, and I need to stop being wishy-washy. He went on to say you have to just keep posting. That’s how businesses and most things grow…you just have to keep going. Don’t be a quitter and show some drive. That’s real talk. There was definitely no bush beating going on here. I chuckled to myself but what could I really say. It’s true and he’s right. There was nothing earth shattering about his feedback but he knows me. He’s a great leader and I value his opinion. He was honest, loving and direct.
This conversation reinforced the importance of relationships. Would I have been moved by someone else who said the same thing? I can’t say but the fact that he cares about me means the world to me.
Peace and Blessings,
