Hello you lovely Blossoms!
I took quite a bit of a break from blogging while I was trying to find balance.
For the past month I've felt very overwhelmed with my goals, daily life, work, social life, and my projects. During January, ALYB just didn't make it in to the balance no matter how hard I tried, and I'm sorry for that.
I bought a calendar and tried writing a schedule, a list, anything that would make me feel organized and clear my thoughts. Instead I got distracted, we traveled, I had homework and projects galore to complete. When I didn't accomplish something on the calendar, I felt so guilty. That created more thoughts. When I got around to even thinking about ALYB, a lot of guilt and stress flooded me, because I had so many things going that I couldn't sit down and just work on this.
I've been thinking, reading, researching. Trying to piece it out, writing lists.
Know how a lot of the huge bloggers say to find your niche? I think I'm doing that. I think that I unconsciously gave myself permission to take a break. Think about things until my head hurt. To make choices.
Reading back on this, it's sounding like a goodbye post. And in a way, it is. I'm entering a new era of ALYB. I'm shedding the old, donning the new, and beginning again. This is a start over.
I have a few more posts I'd like to publish before ALYB enters the new era, so don't worry.
Going back to the niche thing, I want to work on photography, fiber, and creative writing. This will be the new look to ALYB. I know some of you really liked my society-blasting and music posts, So maybe in the near future I'll put together a little blog to do just that.
Until the next post...
