Well, well, well. Where have I been?
I could give the usual answer- we’ve been busy. Busy with work, with a toddler, with vacations, severe seasonal allergies, and… well… life.
Here’s the thing though. Yeah, I’ve been busy, but I could have found time to blog if I’d really wanted to. I just wasn’t feeling motivated. When I first started this blog, I wanted to be A Blogger. I wanted it to grow. I wanted it to be a thing. I wanted it to be a place where other moms and police wives could come and relate. The one thing I didn’t want was for it to be forced, for me to blog for the sake of blogging, and that’s what’s kept me away for the past few months.
It’s not that I don’t enjoy blogging, because I really do. Sometimes, I’ll feel inspired and the words will flow. Lately, not so much. I think I’ve just come to a place where I want to focus on certain things in my life (family, friends, personal relationships, and work) and let the other stuff just be.
As for the blog, that falls in the category of “just be”. I don’t want to shut it down or say “I’m done!” because I don’t think I am done. I’m just not going to feel obligated to it anymore or let myself stress if it’s been a while since I’ve posted. It’s going to be more organic than that. There will probably be ebbs and flows, and I’m okay with that.
I’m not sure if I even have anyone left reading this, or if anyone will stick around to see if I ever decide to post; I just wanted to share, just in case.
For those of you who may want to be caught up, here’s a picture recap of the past few months:
