Good morning friends.
I couldn’t imagine mothering without also maintaining a blog. On the one hand, I’ve worked to make it second nature for me to maintain it (almost daily) while keeping up our home, spending time with my kids + homeschooling, and balancing many other important things. Over the years it definitely has required daily discipline, focus, creativity, and continual confidence to put myself out there and believe that I’m inspiring someone out there.
Some days and weeks ideas flow naturally in my writing based on what we are currently doing, thoughts I’m having, and answers to questions my readers regularly ask. And there are definitely other times I feel absolutely void of ideas. Discipline to write. Photos. Confidence. And desire.
Sometimes when that void is present, I am processing/contemplating some new approaches to my life or the family’s life. I may be problem solving, researching, or preparing to take action on my new ideas. I usually am quietly preserving and working through the transformative insight in my mind, not ready to share it in this space until my confidence is grounded enough to open up.
