wordy wednesday

I have a lot on my mind today. Lots of things swirling through this brain of mine: worries, anxieties, hopes, dreams, to-do lists, ideas, inspirations, regrets, questions. Questions like: Should I stop blogging? Should I give up photography as a hobby? Am I spending too much time online? How can I be more proactive in my parenting? Why do my children bicker so much?

I usually try to keep this little place of mine in cyber space fairly upbeat and positive. This is a place where I share the good stuff in life, the funny memories, the celebrations, the vacations, the ways I have found to live a more creative, joyful life. But lately, I have been feeling unmotivated, uninspired. I browsed back through my blog yesterday, and I was tempted to just delete the entire thing......drastic I know, and I'm glad I gave myself permission to sleep on that thought, but the nagging is still there today. There is still this feeling that my words aren't good enough, my photographs aren't good enough, it lacks a cohesive "theme"...........who's even reading this darn thing anyway :-)

So today, I am battling the negative self-talk. I am trying to keep it all in perspective, to remind myself that this little corner of the blog-o-sphere is a scrapbook of sorts: constantly changing, improving maybe, but most importantly, it is a place to document our memories, to express myself and maybe, just maybe to bring us all a little closer.

You have a darling blog Kristy! I know how you feel though -- there are a lot of things going on when you are a mom and it's hard to figure out the best way to spend your time. At the end of the day you should do what makes you happy. If blogging makes you happy, do it (I love reading your blog!) -- if it doesn't, don't. That's my two cents anyway. :)

I think your blog is beautiful !
You are a wonderful Mom and an inspiration to others. Keep up the good work. Your kids are so young.
My baby is 18, and I am so glad I took the time to share the simple things and make the simple things special. It makes a lasting impression and a history passed to generations.

Hi Kristy - For some reason, it seems like I am always on the same page as you. Why is that? I guess we are just at the same place in life. I have those same exact questions swarming through my head too. I haven't done a post on my family blog in a long time. Motivation probably, I don't know. It has been nice to take a break from the computer world and spend more time doing simpler things, but I miss the blogging world. I have come to the conclusion that it has to all be about me. No comparing to anyone else. Post when and what I want and only because I will want to save it as history. I'm still working it all out in this crazy little head of mine. Just thought you would want to know. It made me feel good to know someone else was feeling the same way as me.

And just so you know...I ABSOLUTELY LOVE your blog!!!!!!!!

I follow you on my Google Reader- can't recall how I found you, but I love stopping in from time to time to see what you're up to.

I think your pix are super (sigh, I wish I could take like you).

Anywhoo- hope you're re-thinking your thoughts on deleting!

Happy Monday-
Carolyn
