Holy Cats, I can’t believe how fast the time flies. I took a few weeks off of writing on the blog because there just seemed to be a never-ending stream of ‘stuff’ happening in our family life and I’ve been playing ‘catch up’ since! Things have finally quieted down and I can’t wait to get back to writing here again! I’m never far away from a pen and pencil (or ‘notes’ on my phone!) and have so many ideas to write about! It’s usually just a matter of carving out the time to sit down and write.
Sometimes I feel like SUCH A FRAUD when I blog, since I see all these other people and companies with their professional level of authority taking up such a giant space online, but then I have to remember that I’m just doing this for fun. I don’t get paid to do this, I’m just out to talk about things that are happening in my life and projects that I’m taking on, both big and small.
After all, if your voice is authentic, you can’t be a fraud, right!?
I will admit, though, that sometimes I feel guilty for taking the time to read and write for pleasure. When I look at all the chores I haven’t done or some games that I should play with my son (after all as parents we are his #1 teachers) and the times that my husband and I are in the same room but barely see each other because we’re concentrated on hobbies instead of each other, it makes me feel as if I should be more ‘with it’. But then I force myself to realize that being kind to everyone includes me as well, so I try to shrug off the feelings of guilt and doubt.
My mind races. So many projects to work on, but so little time!
