I hope that makes sense.
For instance, I love finding new recipes to make and I made it a priority to try a new one at least once a week.
I found myself sticking to only making meals that I knew and my search for new recipes halted.
I love to take pictures (a million at a time if I could) and that went downhill.
My blog took a hit, not only did I not have a desire to blog, I really had no desire to read your posts. This one surprised me because I love reading about other's lives. I think it's the nosey part of being a human. But nope, I didn't need to know what you ate, cooked, traveled to, wore, etc.
It is not that I didn't care, I believe with everything going on in my head I just did not have space for extras.
I want that to change in 2015. I want to get excited about the things that once got me excited. I actually need to.
So I'm going to try very, very hard to get out of this space I'm in. This space of not wanting to make time for things I enjoy doing.
I do regret that 2014 was not well documented on my blog. I'm the type of blogger who likes to read their older posts. I like to see what I was doing at a certain time, age, etc. It is not easy to remember every detail but this blog has allowed it to be so easy to say, OMG, yes! I remember feeling that, wearing that, eating that, etc. It is nice to go down memory lane but I believe this year I didn't really want to remember so I think that I purposely avoided documenting this year as well as I've done past years.
I've decided that to bring my love for my blog back, I have to start somewhere. I'll blog about anything that comes to mind when I sit down at the chair to write. I won't have a theme or even a purpose. I'm just wanting to get my love back and then when I'm in the groove of things ... I'll just have to get there.
While we're on the subject of blogging, yesterday marked my fifth year of blogging. It's amazing to me that I've shared my life online for the last 5 years. Pleasant and not so pleasant memories have been documented on this blog and I hope that I'll continue to do it for many years to come.
Happy New Year and thank you for lending your ears (or should I say eyes?) all these years! xoxo ♥
