I mentioned before in my holiday recap post that I really enjoyed the opportunity to just sit and think about different things. I think sometimes you need that chance to just step away from ‘life’ and take a bit of a break, whether its physically going away or just not doing something for a while, it enables you to take a fresher look at things. This is exactly what I did whilst being away and I came up with a few goals for myself. The first one being..
One of the things that I definitely thought about on holiday was this blog. Before I went away, I started to feel like I was blogging without a purpose, like different posts were written for the sake of writing a post. Even after all this time, the thought of people reading this little blog still flatters and scares me and sometimes I feel pressured in a way that I tend to lose my writing style and write how I think people want to read, not in a way that flows for me. Don’t get me wrong I love sharing new finds and parts of my life with you all, but I got so caught up in a serious side of blogging which made me lose sense in any fun and lets face it, most of us blog for fun anyway! Reviews became robotic and my heart didn’t feel in it. Being away from the blog made me analyse what I wanted to do and where I want the blog to go. I have decided I am going back to old blogging Emmy, where I found everything about a post fun, because if I am not having fun I’m pretty sure no-one else will be! So from now on, I am going to just have fun! I also promise to post more often as I seem to have lost any sense of organisation too, sorry about that! ♥
A few other goals I set myself whilst being away were…
This links to the other goal really. I have the design that I want ready, I just need to save and not talk myself out of it. I tend to do this with everything, if it doesn’t happen instantly I talk myself out of things by the time they happen.
