This isn't going to be a pretty post with lots of pictures. It is going to be a ramble, true to my name. There have been so many good things happening for us recently. New house, new jobs to say the least. But something I have learned in the past few weeks is that even good change can be hard. No one tells you that! Daily challenges persist and there is never enough time. Or enough money come to think of it.
When I started this blog I thought I would post all the time. I didn't care if anyone followed or read my ramblings, but I was still putting myself out there on the Internet for all to see. We would complete a project or do something interesting, but I shied away from posting about it because it didn't look as good or seem as cool as other bloggers posts. Posts became tedious and time consuming. There were times where I felt like was too tired, stressed or busy to put something together. But to some extent, I haven't been posting out of fear. Fear that my posts wouldn't be "good enough".
I started thinking about a post by my friend Allie over at Made By Bird from a few months ago. Although I never told her, I read this post several times. It was an excellent reminder there is no such thing as perfection. No one has it all together--even if that is how it may seem from their Facebook page. (One of the many reasons I gave up Facebook) We struggle in our own ways every day. But hopefully, we have partners, family and friends that help put it all into perspective for us. And remind us to laugh, even if is at ourselves.
Change is hard and scary. It makes us stressed out and fearful. But the best way to deal these emotions is to accept them. So this is me, trying to move on.
