An Impromptu Summer Vacation

PoolTurtleAfter a long and unplanned time away from this space, I can finally say that I have found the motivation to return. I never planned to stop posting back in June, but as with most things, once the first day was missed each consecutive day was exponentially easier to miss. Admittedly, I was also a bit burnt out, and had run out of things to say. The space no longer excited me. The goals I once held for this blog were shifting, and I wasn’t sure if I still needed to be here. If I, as a person, got value out of sharing in this space; and if the expense of my time was worth the investment in the long run. I have a feeling this is a process that most creatives, if not most people, go through at least once per major project. It’s not a fun process, and I would be lying if I said I was 100% confident in the outcome or thought that I was completely finished. It’s more of an on-going and ever evolving system of self-analysis; constantly weighing the pros and cons to determine if the majority, even if it’s just a slight majority, still weighs in favor of happiness. And at the moment, it firmly does.

So, thank you for your patience these past few weeks, and for sticking with me as I took some time away. I’m excited to say that I’ve spent the weekend working through my blog goals and crafting several posts that will go live over the next few days. For now, I’m cutting my posting back to three days a week in an effort to prevent future burnout and build upon the motivation that I’ve rediscovered. So with that, I’ll see you on Monday ~ Have a Happy Weekend!

    So true. I’ve been going through the same evaluation process (with something other than a blog). You’ve defined the process perfectly.
