a lost voice

based on my number of posts last year, I lost my voice in 2013. 

I wonder if you've ever felt like me? I found myself getting lost in the lives of my favorite bloggers and not my own. I found myself wanting to have the perfect post instead of a honest sharing of my heart. I found myself creating just so I could share it in this space. then I found myself disliking more about blogging than I liked. so I made a decision to take a pause. that pause turned into a stop. 

unfortunately when the words stopped flowing on my blog, my creative juices stop flowing as well. It wasn't until November that I started knitting and finishing...anything.

one of my 2014 goals is to rekindle my love of creating, writing, and connecting in this space and in yours. I invite you to travel along with me this year. welcome back.

I totally understand where you are coming from!! I've been doing the same thing. I stopped my first blog because I got tried of feeling like I needed to craft as well to have good posts, so my crafting slowed down or stopped in some forms. Then I started a new blog to be more about my daily life and the kids... then I felt like I was telling everyone everything, and I really didn't want my whole life out there... then I stopped taking photos unless we were on a trip or it was someone's birthday, I was missing the daily stuff that I love most. So now I've got a few blogs going and trying to just enjoy life and blogging without the pressure. Once I let go of expectations it's really going well. Good luck to you on your new blogging journey!
