Hello & Goodbye {For Now}

It’s been a little over a month since I’ve last written a blog post.  Actually, that’s not true.  I blog in my head all day every day, but the task of writing things down, adding and editing pictures, and finding time between four kids and all their activities, well, it’s just too much.  It has become a task I am not enjoying.  Until recently, I haven’t been living and reveling in the moments that I really enjoy, more reliving, editing, and constantly feeling behind in “documenting”.  Personally, I love storytelling and sharing my experiences, but the task has become too great.  I put it off for a week, then another and another trying to discover what I could do and change to become engaged in blogging again, until I finally realized it’s just not for me at this time and what a relief that epiphany was!

This is what usually happens when I try to blog these days. She needs to be involved in the process.

I still junk most weeks and am always, always elbow deep in a project.  What I found when I let blogging go was that I am creating something every single day.  All that time spent documenting and editing was taking away what I truly enjoyed about being a creative.  The creative process and being in the moment, letting my mind wander and go to build or design something when inspiration strikes is something I love with my whole being.  It’s the passion that I’ve been missing these past few months.  I am truly happy when I’m just being me.  All 50 shades of creative crazy.  In the moment.   Oh My Gluestick projects

In this process of creative rediscovery, I’ve reconnected to Instagram.  I initially joined a couple of years ago and was annoyed with yet another social media facet I would have to learn and keep up with.  Something triggered me to start up again a few months ago, and what I found was an amazing community of like minded creatives who were supportive and encouraging.  This method of documenting became my go-to and I have loved every minute of it.  It’s so quick and easy which makes me feel like I’m still keeping track of moments, but doing it in a guilt and pressure free way.

I’ve blogged for ten years now.  I started when I was pregnant with my first child and have had several blogs from then until now serving different capacities.  This is my longest living, active blog.  It’s time for a break or maybe this type of social media is archaic to me.  Either way, the break is what I need.  I’ll never say goodbye for good.  I love to write too much.  Eventually, my little people will give me a break here and there and I will have something to say.  For now, the pressure is off and it feels way too good to put unnecessary stress back in my schedule.

If you want to continue to follow my projects, head over to Instagram and see what I’ve been up to.  It’s something different every day!  Thank you for following me on my journey.  It’s been an adventure and still, the best is yet to be.

Until next time.

XO,
Tommie
