This blogger-mom is pulling the plug on pressure.
I am talking to myself differently these days
God will lead me one step at a time.
- No need to stay wound up in a tight ball.
- No need to attempt to get over every writing hurdle in one day.
I can say this because I tried and it left me flat on my face.
When you’re a young writer-mom with many hats to wear you can sort of feel the balls dropping on your toes, and have the urge to push a little too hard in certain areas, to try and make up for the lack.
Because a blog is a tool, it can be powerful.
But it is not meant to be a tool to beat you to a pulp. I have let myself be beaten too many times to count. So where is the balance?
Part of learning the ropes of blogging is learning your personal pace.
My life right now consists of being a keeper of my people and home (this includes teaching and paying the bills plus yard stuff) and being a Sunday school teacher.
This is all I can handle and still write.
Yes, I dream of moving to New Zealand or Argentina to get that slow paced culture thing going, but I am not sure that is God’s plan for me right now.
For now overwhelmed blogger moms, let’s slow it sown and be content with the pace we need to go at to stay sane and still blog, AND be creatively resourceful in the process.
