I decided rather spontaneously last night that I’m done blogging for the holiday season. As soon as this popped into my mind I felt a sense of relief. You’ve noticed that I haven’t been posting as regularly lately. I do believe that I’ll be back in the beginning of 2013 (and maybe maybe a random post here and there in between), but this will give me time to figure out what role blogging is going to continue to have in my life.
I am looking forward to spending time doing seasonal activities with the kids (without thinking about blogging before, during, or after the activity).
I am looking forward to enjoying the little moments in my life (without being distracted in the background of my brain with ‘when was the last time I blogged?’)
I am looking forward to removing even one distraction from my life during this time we have devoted to focus on the gift of Jesus (without splitting my concentration between sharing the fun and the serious parts of our Christmas celebration with all the internet).
I am looking forward to decorating for Christmas, drinking too much cocoa, wrapping presents, watching my favorite movies, and reveling in everything I love about Christmas, which is just about all of it (without worrying about stats, frequency, posting my links in all the right places, and checking for comments).
Yes, clearly, I’ve been thinking a lot about balance lately and how I’m spending my time. (Sometimes I get stopped from implementing something in my life as I’m stuck trying to think of how I’m going to blog about it and then I end up not doing either of those things. I’m weird, I know. lol)
I hope that you all have a tremendous holiday season and find a way that works for you to simplify just a little bit.
From the Zehlahlum Family to you, have a Happy Thanksgiving, Happy Hanukah, Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, and Happy Whatever I’ve Forgotten.
