So I’m having a little bit of an identity crisis. Not really, personally…..I’m pretty sure I know who I am. At least I do most days. The identity crisis involves this blog.
While I, like many women, am very good at guilt, I’m not liking the guilt I feel if I miss posting on the blog. If I’m not posting, it’s most likely because I haven’t managed to get anything creative done on that particular day because life has, once again, intervened. The thing is, I didn’t want this blog to be a lot about me. There’s plenty of personal blogs out there and while I enjoy reading them, that’s just not me. I don’t mind sharing, but the whole point to this blog was to motivate: to motivate both me and my readers. Somehow I just don’t believe that me getting into a lot of personal stuff is where I want to go.
That being said, sometimes what’s taking me away from my creative path is just plain personal stuff. Whether it’s spending time with my husband, friends, or family or whether it’s just the dreary daily obligations to house and home, some days I just get nothing creative done. Truthfully, I don’t feel dreadfully guilty about that….it’s not having something to blog about that I feel guilty about.
One of the things keeping me from creating, and thereby keeping me from blogging, has been a personal issue. I need to get healthy. My husband needs to get healthy. We’re both way too fat. I love to cook and we eat well….too well. Add to that the amazing cooking skills of my friends and family and we’re in trouble. We’re surrounded by amazing food. We also work really wonky hours which makes it hard to eat properly. We’re through copping-out and making excuses though. I joined Weight Watchers with my girlfriend and we’re going to start eating healthy…we just are. So it’s hard….we need to just suck it up and do the work or we’re going to continue to be tired, worn-out, and stretched to the limit. And did you know that on the new Weight Watchers almost all FRUITS and veggies are zero points?? Zip, zero, nada. Free fruit. How easy is that??
So having done that, I’m going to get back to creating. Which means I’ll be back to blogging regularly. By taking better care of myself…by taking the time to be good to myself, I’ll be a better me…with a better blog. *grin* That’s the plan anyway. Try it…be good to yourself. It won’t hurt. I promise.
