She Awakes

Well, hello there! Ok, so I have not blogged in, well... forever. Life got busy, my perfectionism got in the way and frankly, I hit a wall. The past year here has been a blur of balancing three jobs, marriage, school, life choices, and finding my place, amongst many other things. Needless to say blogging became the least of my worries. Funny thing is that even though I wasn't blogging, I was still thinking in post like thoughts. Do you ever do that? Think... this would make a great post or I would feel so much better just letting this out of my chest for the world to read it... scratch that, less than ten amazing followers. I love each one of you and I apologize for becoming MIA. You might have to wipe away any cob webs linked directly to this blog and blow the dust off your screen.

Blogging is a funny thing. I love writing, sharing new ideas/finds, and feeling like I can make a difference in somebody's life... until I get discouraged or lose focus. There were so many things I wanted to do with this blog and I became so overwhelmed that I just quit. Not smart. Don't do that. I've missed it and now understand that it is something I must do for myself because of the enjoyment it brings me. I need a creative outlet. Not perfection. I'm so Type A, it's ridiculous. From this point forward, I'm not gong to worry about what I blog about. It could be anything! Even just photos! That's ok, right? Bypassing all of the rules for a successful blog will set me free. I mean, let's get honest.... I'm not going to become the next Pioneer Woman or Katie Kimball from Kitchen Stewardship, like I dream of and that's totally fine.

I've realized that it is a challenge for me to do things, well.... just for me. Does anyone else struggle with this? I'm so concerned with everyone else around me that I tend to forget about Danielle and what makes her happy. Seeking my own joy instead of that of others feels unnatural, as our life is not our own, but I know I have to do it. I have to learn to balance these things like I do with other aspects of my life.

I'm not sure what this blog is going to look like now. I'm gonna take it one day at a time and see what happens. I may blog daily, weekly, or monthly without rhyme or reason. I'll talk about recipes, fashion, homemade household products, my family, insecurities, struggles, triumphs, God, crafts, the food industry, sewing, and any other little or big thing I feel the need to share with you. Are you up for it? I will be random, leaving somedays to cleverness and being worth your time, while other days you will be wondering what in the world I was thinking.

If your willing, I would be honored to have you aboard this crazy adventure.

Here's to transparency, heart, and above all glory to our Lord through embracing His journey.

Cheers.

Danielle
