Right now, I am reading this wonderful book, The Gifts of Imperfection: Let Go of Who You Think You’re Supposed to Be and Embrace Who You Are, by Brene Brown. I am not very far in. I have decided to take tiny steps towards reading it each night before I go to sleep.
Last night, I was reading, and it hit me. I miss this space. I know I haven’t been posting here much, and I would like to start again. So, then I got to thinking about why I haven’t been posting. I am busy, but I was always busy. This is a new kind of busy for me, though. A kind of busy that doesn’t always allow for crafty stuff to make it to the list.
And, I had it in my head that in order to have a “perfect” blog, I had to have “perfect” posts with “perfect” projects presented in “perfect” pictures and a “perfectly” clear focus. And, I, without completely intending to, had transformed my thinking about this space as a place where I could only share crafty stuff and not even all of it, only the perfect stuff.
So, I am ditching that not-so-perfect idea. I am never going to have a blog that makes any money. That was never my goal anyway. If you look back to my initial posts, I don’t even think I shared much of my crafty stuff. So, I am going to take back this space. I will still post the fun stuff I am working on, but I am going to post what’s going on with me too. That was the whole point from the beginning.
