Sometimes Life Can Be Suffocating

Sometimes life can be suffocating. Sometimes it all just gets a bit too much. Sometimes I just need to take a step back.

Unfortunately I am not perfect nor do I aim to be. Sometimes I think about running away from everyday life. Sometimes I wish I could go back to a time where I could do what I wanted, when I wanted.

I am only human and that’s all I can be.

My blog has always been my place to turn to when I needed another focus. When I wanted to remember these moments years down the line. It was never a number game. Yet I found myself consumed by the number of page views, followers, link backs. Every time I got a new follower I wanted another. I was hungry for more! My blog became my competition.

I would arrange my days around my blog. Planning activities so I had photos. Making sure I was home for nap time so I could write.

But we were out taking photos but I was never in the moment. Posts were getting written but they weren’t written from the heart.

That is not what my blog is about.

My blog is about my family. Those two little girls who I live for every single day! I shouldn’t be planning things to write. I should be planning things with them.

sometimes life

They aren’t just a reason to write, they are the reason I write.

So yeah sometimes life can be suffocating. Sometimes life can be very mundane. Sometimes life can be so full of love that its hard to explain.

I will still be here. But instead of working around my blog, my blog will work around our family!

  2. I can see how you could get caught up in the numbers game so easily. I hope you don’t feel too badly about it – seems to me like you have your priorities well and truly sorted xx

  3. I feel like this a lot of the time due to the fact that people judge me for always been on my phone when I am commuting which can be because I am doing social media or something, I can also be taking pictures on my phone don’t worry. Your not the only one.

  4. Oh I totally understand this! Up until a couple of years ago blogging took over my life and everything involved with it. Last year I rediscovered living beyond the blog and I feel so much better for it. 2017 is all about finding the right life/blog balance 🙂
