Sometimes I come to the this space ready to go. I've had a post in my mind for days, have fully thought through how what I have to say will add value to the world, and other days, like today, I sit down in front of my computer and the words just won't come out. I know what I want to write about, but I have no idea what I want to say yet. I've written, and scrapped, two fully thought out blog posts already this morning because the words weren't flowing the way I needed them to. I was going off on random tangents that made no sense and added nothing to the point I was trying to get across.
I started this space to share my story, my opinions and somewhere along the way I started blogging about my business, blogging about blogging and other things happening in the industry, and that's where the words stopped flowing. I could come here and write a million posts on how to start a blog, social media or design, but that's not what I want this space to be about.
I want this space to serve as inspiration, and a big lesson in grace. I want to share my personal experiences in hopes that one person can relate to it, and find hope in the words that I carefully chose to share. Sometimes that's as easy as writing a letter to an old friend, and some days, like today, there's just nothing. I think I'm going to pick up journaling again in hopes that it'll put the spark back in my heart for writing things out, and next time I show up here to just write, the words will flow effortlessly. So, friends, I hope you have an absolutely beautiful, snowed in Friday and I'll be back here on Monday hopefully ready to pound this keyboard until my fingers hurt.
Here are some of my favorite posts that I've written over the past couple of years that show where this space has been, and where I intend on taking it this year.
