KISS it Goodbye
When I started this blog, I had a plan for weekly and monthly features. I am a planner, so I even have a calendar filled with topics about which I would post each day. Turns out, so much planning kinda takes the fun out this. I started blogging for several reasons. I wanted a creative outlet and something that was just for me. I love, border on being obsessed with, decorating. And, I did have dreams of conquering the blogosphere and becoming the next Julie Powell.
Now that I have done it for a while, I realize that I have to really enjoy it for it to be worthwhile. It is a lot of work people! And, I may never be Julie Powell. I have to focus on doing this for me or I am sure to give up.
Truth is, I don’t enjoy my KISS entries. I struggle to come up with ideas and it didn’t make me feel all tingle-y inside.
The flip side of that is, surprisingly, I really like writing. I was shocked. I never liked writing in school, and it wasn’t something I was particularly looking forward to about doing the blog. But, I LOVE it! It gives me a chance to express myself freely. Plus, it is really challenging because it is not one of my strong suits. I struggle with my grammar, spelling, punctuation and making sure that the thoughts in my head make sense on the typed page.
So, friends, I am saying goodbye to KISS. I will, of course, continue to share tips as I come up with them. I’m just not going to force it. I am also going to give myself permission to occasionally write a post about living. After all, live is the first word in the name of this blog. I encourage you to give yourself permission today to let go a little too.
