You may have noticed that over the past few months blogging here at Scrap Inspired has been spotty at best. You may have wondered where I am, what’s going on and if everything is ok. I would wonder the same thing in your shoes
For awhile there I was good. I was awesome in fact. I loved everything it took to get 3 blog posts up every week, and post on social media 1-2 times a day, and keep up with the email list, and develop new classes, and stay on top of my other jobs as well as be a wife and mother. And…oh yeah…scrapbook. And then there came a day that I felt tired.
Do you ever feel that way? You want to create, you want to scrapbook, you want to blog, you really want to. But you don’t have the energy to make it all happen? I think I feel that way when to many things become a HAVE TO instead of a WANT TO. So over the last few months I decided to focus on the things I wanted to do.
I wanted to enjoy the summer schedule and sleep late.
I wanted to take my kids to the pool and the amusement park.
I wanted to have picnics and playdates.
I wanted to ride bikes.
I wanted to see movies.
I wanted to go to the theater.
I wanted to go fishing.
I wanted to take a vacation with friends.
I wanted to read lots of books.
I wanted to go to lots of baseball games.
I wanted to go to church camp.
I wanted to play board games.
I wanted to take care of my Mom after shoulder surgery.
I wanted to cook, clean, and do laundry (ok, I didn’t want to do those things but we don’t always get to do what we want).
I wanted to visit my sister’s farm.
I wanted to play outside.
I wanted to sit in the driveway and chat with my neighbors.
I wanted to have cook-outs.
I wanted to sing around the campfire.
I WANTED TO ENJOY LIFE!
I know that one day soon I will be back to creating, and blogging, and emailing, and developing new classes. Not because I have to, but because I truly want to.
And when I do, I’ll have lots of stories to tell.
