Life is hard. It’s super great and all, but it’s hard. Sometimes things are going your way and then suddenly they’re not. Poof. Or maybe things are great, yet you are so busy that you don’t even have time to make a To Do List to keep track of all of the things you have to do. Or there are the times when you are managing your bubble of life just fine, but the craziness flying around you makes it so you can’t even think. Conclusion: Life happens… but that’s ok!
Life has been happening for our team this week in many different ways. Work, family, friends. Stress, excitement, sadness, fun. What it all boils down to is life getting in the way of accomplishing everything on our To Do Lists. But it happens. Last week we neglected this blog because life was happening… but, again, that’s ok.
I think my favourite piece of blogging advice is to let go of the guilt. We could beat ourselves up about not posting… or we could let it go and work on our next posts. I think we are pretty ambitious folk, trying to get a post up on this blog every day. So what if we miss a day? The world won’t end. It’s a bit disappointing to skip a whole week, yet totally fine in the end. We started this blog as a creative outlet. Somewhere to talk about the things we love. A place for our random rants & ramblings. It’s fun, so we shouldn’t weigh it down with guilt.
Even professional bloggers let this guilt go. Sometimes you need a sick day. Or a mental health day. Or a “something else is taking priority” day. We have those from our actual jobs, so why can’t we have them from our hobby too? SO fellow bloggers, let go of the guilt. remember that life happens… and that’s ok!
Love & Luck,
