I love blogging. Its been a huge source of therapy. An outlet. Writing has been such a big part of my life these last 5 years. Now that blogs are on the outs and not many people update theirs or even read them anymore I have to say I have no desire to stop. Mainly because I do this for myself. For my family. I love the relationships I have built and friends I have met. There are many people that have helped me during some of my hardest of hard days and some that continue to help me laugh and smile every time I read their latest post.
All social media can be bad for me. and for others I think. There is so much comparing. Far to many putting each other down instead of raising each other up. Too many people hiding behind their computer saying horrible things based on a small amount of what people put online. I am guilty of comparing myself, my son and my husband to others. Thinking I am not enough. My marriage is not enough and my son is not nearly smart enough. It can be so good for the soul and yet so bad for your heart and mind. I am always trying to balance what is right for me. Taking breaks here and there and limiting my screen time. I am always reminding myself that the small amount of what people put online. That 1 picture. Says nothing compared to the big picture. I myself am guilty of this. Taking a cute picture with a cute caption making it look as if life is bliss when in reality it was the only moment that day I wasn't a beasty Mum and my son wasn't causing havoc.
I am thankful for this blog. I am thankful for the mini vacation from this blog when I felt a little more privacy was needed. I am thankful that I can keep this blog forever. That I can print it out each year (after far too many hours editing the damn book) and keep it for myself and my family for years to come. After being away for so long I have deiced to come back to this blog. It is where I began and its where I want to continue. I will keep it updated fairly regularly. Get ready for Tracker overload. I am not doing the double blog any longer because its been more of a pain to tell people that this blog is where you can go to read and learn about the leggings and Kenzie but that I update another one... So its easier to keep it as one.
Not that this is headline news or anything but just a little explanation.
No need to keep checking the other blog. Its pretty much done.
Thanks for continuing to read.
