So for the past few weeks writing has been on my heart.
Well, typing I should say, because I can’t remember the last time I’ve actually written a sentence with an pen 😉
It was weird because the first day I thought about how I missed writing/journaling, the next day, my mom said, “You haven’t really been writing much on your blog lately.” I kind of brushed it off and thought I write with my pictures.
What is going on, Megan?
You have a blog. Why aren’t you writing?
All questions I’ve recently asked myself.
Sure, I blog random thoughts, but even lately I’ve had to think about those thoughts. I want to start really writing again, too. I sit down and start typing.
I won’t take writer’s block for an answer. It’s a journal, life is happening.
This week, I’ve had two people email me and tell me my story means so much to them and how they’ve learned from it; how they’ve gone through similar situations and felt like they had me even though it was just my blog; emails saying from people saying find my strength and grace inspiring, and that my story/journey will continue to impact lives.
Then, part of me feels like I’m not telling our story anymore.
Strength and grace? I still have that, right?
I still have faith.
I still have it all, but I feel like I’m letting myself down by not writing and perhaps others, too.
I don’t know if it’s that I’ve had more people randomly tell me they read my blog and I had no idea they would read my blog or if it’s just that I’m soaking up all these precious moments in my head and don’t take the time to get them out on my blog.
But I want to. I want to get back to where I sit down and write. I don’t think about what I’m going to write. I honestly use to never have a topic on mind. I would just sit down and go at it. Now, I think I sit down and question, What will people think? Is that weird? Have already blogged this? etc
Thank you for reading and for thoughtful words. I know God had me start this blog for a reason. Can you even believe that I’ve had emails saying this blog has saved lives? I have. You must request a pulse ox test if your state doesn’t require it before baby leaves the hospital.
Not only do I want to get back to writing, I want to get back to reading. I love the relationships I’ve made over the past five years. I love reading blogs and reading your story. I’ve “known” people in this “blogging world” for quite some time. I knew them before they were dating their spouse and now they are married with a handful of kids. I have college girls email me that have read since highschool; grandmothers who found me from their granddaughters. Men, I know you are there, too. It’s all a bit crazy to me, but God gave me this platform to share, whether it’s my random thoughts, whats on my heart, pictures, faith, food, videos, reviews and so forth.
I told someone today this blog is my “second baby” next to Knox and Sloane, of course. It kept me going when I was in a really sad sad place. It’s not going anywhere 🙂
We are a happy wittle blogging family, but we’re a mess, too!
