Just dropping in to make a confession: I'm having a bad day.
Nothing bad happened, nothing is really wrong, but it is what it is. I'm just in a funk, you know? I don't feel like myself today, but this "gram" encouraged me that that's okay.
It's okay that I'm feeling down and it's okay that I don't always feel super motivated to do the things I'm usually passionate about.
To be honest, blogging has felt like a bit of a chore lately (sad day!!). I want to want to do it, believe me! But I'm trying to recognize burnout before it occurs, or at least gets too serious, so I'm going to scale back a bit.
You may have seen my recent post about the 30 Day Minimalism Challenge I'm trying this month, which is actually going pretty well. I'm only 8 days in, but the challenge has already brought up some vulnerability and "junk" to the surface. That's kind of the point of minimalism, to me, so I'm not going to run from it.
That being said, it's shaping several areas of my life and it just might change the way things look around here. Don't be surprised if I post less frequently and about things that you may not have expected.
Don't worry, you're still going to hear from me, and it won't always be as solemn as this post has been, ha! But I'm definitely weeding out the "froufrou" and the things that aren't as important to me, including my perceptions about what I "should" be blogging.
I only want to focus on what's meaningful - and that's okay.
So thanks for sticking around for the journey!
All my love,
