Writing. Someday.

As you may or may not have noticed over the past few weeks, I haven’t been writing much at all.  I’ve been keeping up with my Color Book Tutorial/Sew-Along, I’ve posted a few KIOS posts, I’ve put up some cute pictures.

But real thoughts?  They’re not coming out.  My “Blog Post Ideas” list has sixteen ideas on it – big ideas, things I’ve been thinking about a lot, things I’d love to get out of my head and down in writing, things others have asked me to write about.

But it’s hard to write when you’re tired and you’ve been awake since 5:30 and you have a baby in your arms and your toddler doesn’t nap anymore.

It’s hard to take the time to write when you feel like there are sixty million other things that you should do instead.

It’s hard to write when your toddler is crying all. the. time.  It’s hard to write when really you should be paying attention to her, to see through the crying to the root of things, to not just tell her that “Crying makes Mama mad” and walk off.

It’s hard to write when you’re a perfectionist and you just don’t think there’s enough time here and there to write a post worthy of publishing.

So I’m here to say, I’m going to try to write more.  I need to get these thoughts out of me.  I might have to lower my standards a bit, might not have time to edit ten times before hitting “Publish”, might have to give myself some grace.

But I’m going to do it.  I will.  Just not today.  I have too much to do!

    Self-grace is huge. Write. I’ll love it.

    I agree with Zona. Your thoughts are sweet to my eyes (ears!), no matter if they are edited or not. No matter how many actually get written down.

    Yes! Write more. I would LOVE to hear more of these big thoughts, big ideas (and the small ones, too for that matter). Give yourself the freedom to be less than perfect, to be who you have to be right now. You might be surprised at the result! 🙂
