I’m not perfect. No one is. But we all have endless pressure on us to be perfect, look perfect, act perfect.
Frankly, it’s exhausting.
It’s been months since I’ve posted on here. I’m not happy about it, but here we are.
I love the space I’ve created here, the friendships that have blossomed, the connections that have been made. But I don’t love the pressure, either from other people or from myself, honestly.
I wanted to wait to post on here until I was 100% happy with everything, and right about now I’m thinking that’ll never be the case. And that’s okay.
One of the main reasons I stopped posting was that I wasn’t happy with my header images for my posts. I picked a style and ran with it, and then I didn’t like it anymore. I didn’t want to post content with inconsistent images because I knew it would drive me crazy.
But so what? To me in this space, words are more important than images.
Another reason I stopped posting so much was because I wanted to update and refine a lot of this site to be better and more true to myself. Life got crazy, as it always does, and this blog was put on the back burner. For way too long.
So now I’ve decided to post whenever I feel like it, even if the images don’t match previous ones on here or maybe even future ones, honestly. Images and creativity in that regard aren’t my specialty. I know that, but I still put a lot of pressure on myself.
I need to focus more on the words, the meaning behind the words and how to best connect with people. Even if I have stellar and Pinterest-worthy posts, no one will care if the words don’t have any meaning.
So this is me: imperfect, inconsistent but real.
Stick with me if you’d like. I have a lot of catching up to do as well as a lot of new things I want to try. Some things will stay the same. Some things will probably change drastically. But that’s just what makes this one big adventure.
