Adorable January Calender Freebie from Mandipidy! It's hanging in my office!
I am not going to pretend that I am not shocked it is already 2013. This past year has been such a blessing. I am humbled daily at the success my business has become + so grateful that I can do something that I truly love.
I was going to do a resolutions/best of 2012 post, and maybe I still will, but I realized something that deep down I actually already knew. I am not a great blogger. There, it feels so awesome to get that out there.
There are so many amazing bloggers out there, ones that I admire so very much. Ones that I am so inspired + challenged by. And I will be honest, I find myself comparing, wishing I could write as beautifully as them. Wishing I could express myself as wonderfully as they do. It is hard not to do that, isn't it?
At times like that, I find myself feeling pressured to post something, anything. And when I feel like that one of two things happens. I either post something I don't really like or feel proud of OR I stop posting regularly all together. I have found that lately the latter is happening.
And you know what? I realized something...it's OK. I don't have to pressure myself into posting daily. I don't have to be so hard on myself, I don't have to feel guilty if I don't write anything for a few days. I don't want to feel all that pressure. If I am too busy, or tired or just uninspired, I don't want to feel like I HAVE to get something out there.
And that realization is so liberating!
I love blogging. It's a way to connect with people, document my life, share the things I love & be a part of this amazing world I have grown to love so much. And I don't want to lose sight of that & why I started blogging in the first place.
So as a resolution of sorts, I guess in 2013 I want to remember that, and lose the unnecessary pressure I had been putting on myself.
So, now that I got all that off my chest (and man, does it feel good) here's a little peek into what I have been up to lately:
New gold & pewter options will be added to the shop very soon!
