A TON to be Thankful for and Some Bloggy Truths
It's no lie that when you have a baby it becomes harder and harder to blog. I'm sure all of my mommy friends can relate. It's not that I blog just as a personal "diary" for us, but I blog to share information with the world that is running through my head. It's ridiculous how much junk goes through there. I blog because I love to write and always have. I blog because in my mind I like to pretend I'm some big shot writer who inspires millions of people and has fans all over the world who love my work (hey a girl can dream).
The truth is I just love to write. I love to inspire others, inform others and make others laugh with my work. I call it work, but truth be told...it's just a hobby. Sometimes it's a hobby that I find hard to get the motivation to do; sometimes it's a hobby that I think about constantly; and sometimes it's a hobby that I even beat myself up over (you know, like when I don't post something). I know, I know...I really need to work on that. But I have sooooo many goals when it comes to this piece of the Internet I call home.
Keeping up with a crawling baby, a blog, a house that needs cleaning and food that needs cooking can really feel like a full time job. Yet here I am in my pajamas still with the TV on while eating cookies. It's a fun job. I'm blessed beyond measure.
Sometimes I wish for a big fancy house; a house that we actually own. I sometimes even envy the ones I pass and see for sale and wish that we could buy. It's not that we can't, we just don't know if we'll be in this area much longer. But boy how I wish we would be.
Sometimes I envy the ever growing blogs I see and the blog posts that I see that often go viral. I promise you I'm not blogging for any fame or fortune (I mean really blogging can't make you rich) but I do blog with the hopes of tons of people reading. And for those of you who read, I sincerely thank you, you're a TON to me :).
I always say it, but blogging has brought along many great friends. I feel like I know so much about some people and can call them my bloggy BFFs but I've actually never met them. That is one of the many reasons why I love blogging. We're like a group of mamas and women all with the same interests all across the globe.
So this Thanksgiving season, I am thankful for so much. I am thankful for my ability to stay at home, for food on our table, a roof over our head, our health, the ability to dance, a blog that people DO read and I am most thankful for LOVE. I am beyond thankful for the love of my life and the beautiful, precious child that we created. I am thankful for family and friends; and my parents who do so much for us. I can't say it enough how thankful I am to have become this baby's mama. She has changed my life in more ways than I ever imagined. I even feel like she has changed my destiny. She literally makes my heart do flips. Literally.
I may not have it "all," but I sure do have everything I truly need. And for me, that is all I really need.
This holiday season I'm not going to beat myself up over not getting a post up. I'm going to enjoy this time with my child, watch too many Christmas movies, eat too much, shop too much and enjoy life too much. You probably will still see posts every day (that's OCD me), just maybe not the in-depth stuff like usual.
It's the holidays y'all and I'm going to enjoy it.
P.S. I do have a giveaway or two coming! I do have some awesome places that I am guest posting soon. AND I do have BIG news about me kinda, sorta becoming a "student" again.
Any bloggy mamas can relate?
I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving
with a ton to be thankful for.
Thanks for reading, Sasha
