I have a confession to make. First I want to ask you if you’ve ever heard the saying that your home or things in your life says a lot about you? Do you believe that to be true? I do. And lately my life have been turned upside down. Usually. I’m a fun bubbly person, that laughs a lot. But, lately I’ve ‘seen’ myself in another light. Lately I feel hurried, tired, overwhelmed, and drained. I feel a little out of touch. I would love to be able to pin point the exact cause, but there are many. A few includes people, my home, and blogging.
I’m a people pleaser. I’ve been like that for a while now. What I’ve realized from being a “pleaser” is that there are only certain people that need to be pleased. Since that revelation, I’ve let quite a few people go. That a lone has given me a sense of relief.
My home has become somewhat neglected. I do the bare minimum these days. Laundry, dishes, and cleaning bathrooms just to name a few. But, other things that I use to be on top of like organizing, decluttering, and so on seem to be the last on my mind.
Lastly, blogging has really taken its toll. I started this blog to have a way to release my thoughts that other people around me didn't want to hear. I never thought that I would actually meet people and build relationships. I can honestly say that starting a blog has been one of the greatest things I’ve done lately. What I didn’t realize is how consumed it can be. Nor did I realize how competitive and greedy one can get without realizing it. I never thought that I would get comments (honestly). I never thought about followers. I never thought about sponsors, advertisements, giveaways, and so forth. But, then I was bitten. I received comments from people other than family and then I wanted more. That started my crave. So I thought of any and everything I could do to get followers and comments. Right now at this very moment, I know that for me that is not why I blog. Yes I love hearing what you guys have to say, but I also love that I have said something. By taking this pressure off of me, I feel free. Free to get back to blogging my best.
I thought by taking a week off last week, I would somehow return to normal. Yeah, that didn’t happen. But, by sharing my feelings with you is a major step. Because you are reading, I feel the need to be truthful.
If your home, or things in your life represents where you are mentally, then this photo says it all about me right now
Bare with me guys. I AM on the road to recovery! Can any of you relate? Please, somebody, anybody, say yes!
