Remember when I used to blog?
I used to actually update my header with a custom design month by month...not just have their generic set up.
Even if I hadn't worked on any projects, I'd share other great finds. I used to share random crap going on in my life. Remember those days?
Last year kinda fell apart on me. It doesn't mean I wasn't working on projects around my house...I was working on things, but I lost the desire to document it and blog it. I ran out of typing words and thoughts. I lost the energy to search for ideas and inspiration. I lost the energy to share all the great things I find on the internet. At the end of the year I decided I didn't want to blog unless I genuinely felt like it...I didn't want to blog because I thought I had to.
That just goes to show, I wasn't in a blogging place the last half of last year because my drive to blog didn't exist. I stopped caring. I kinda stopped following the many beautiful blogs I love and follow out there. I wanted my world to exist outside of my computer, so it did. I didn't sit still for very long last year....not long enough to really blog.
I cancelled Christmas. That's right...no decorations and the only presents were for kids (can't cancel Christmas for kids). I was just too busy to think about it, so I didn't.
For a year that started out really crappy, it ended beautifully. It ended just how I wanted it to, which made starting 2012 perfectly. This is going to be a good year.
I don't want to make promises as far as my blog is concerned. I want to do it because I love it and enjoy it. I want to post and share about things because I feel like it....not because I think I need to.
I've finished my bedroom makeover....it looks beautiful....I'm in love with my room. I will share it and the process and all the DIY projects in there, but I don't know when.
I'm actually almost done my entrance makeover...again...who knows when it will be completely done and when I'll share it, but I will....one day.
I am slowly going through my house room by room and making it perfect for me.....exactly how I want. I've learned a lot and I'm doing a lot myself. It's fun....except when I have to paint walls...I hate painting walls.
I will have things to blog about this year...eventually. Maybe today is even the start of more blogging...I don't know.
Under promise...over deliver. I need to learn this. I don't make New Year's Resolutions, but I do believe the beginning of the new year is a good time to start fresh in life. It's just that simple. We don't need lists of things we may or may not complete or fail at. We don't need that pressure. We just need to be our best selves each day. We need to do what makes us happy, day in and day out. When we want to do something...start now...why wait for a new year or a new day or a new month? Start when you want to do it. For me...my new year started yesterday.
I'm totally pumped for this year. It's going to be a good year. I just might need you to remind me of that if we don't get some snow on the hills soon. I want to snowboard, but can't be doing that on grass.
I may also need this reminder that it's a good year if winter comes too late.
or if I have to put my fat pants back on.
or if I keep eating my weight in chocolate.
or if I attempt stencilling an entire room and it looks like I let my friend's 4 year old son do it.
or if I get an infestation of stray cats again this year.
or if I forget how awesome I really am....
I might need you to point me back to this post....k?
