button! I have written and rewritten
different “first” posts over the last month but have not been able to yet take
that step and publish. Today I sit here
once again with what I have termed “first post paralysis” and I’m determined to
get this thing started once and for all.
“Dare to Begin”, and I have Gretchen Rubin’s voice in my head saying
I have read books about blogging, connected to fantastic sites that help
step you through setting up your blog.
But still, I can’t. I have played
with Blogger, Squarespace and WordPress and have started writing posts to
publish once the first one is out of the way.
So what stops me?
worse, what if they read it and think it was all a big waste of their
time? What if I put myself out there and
people are mean?
on maternity leave with my second child, I have been having a good honest look
at myself trying to work out what I want to do with my life. I have been reading more, soul searching,
looking, and trying to acknowledge that little whisper that is telling me “this is not all there is….. you are more
than this”. So here we are, I have decided that I will write.
three core themes, because these words are what work for me, they are how I
want to feel every day, they make me sparkle from the inside. I want to feel CREATIVE, CALM, and CONNECTED.
I feel like if I do, I will never hit the “publish” button) I think I will just
sit with that for now….. and hope, hope that I fly.
