Metamorphosis

I've been thinking about my blog lately. Specifically, why I didn't stick with it the first time I got it going. Yes, I'm busy...I'm always busy. But I do enjoy writing and love visiting other blogs and I love the connection and inspiration that comes along with blogging. I finally came to the conclusion that I was trying to make my blog into something that I thought a blog SHOULD be. Does that make sense? I guess the phrase that keeps coming into my head is one that every writer is familiar with....Write what you know. So, originally I was writing about my day and occasionally complaining about mundane things. But it never felt comfortable. I never got into a groove. I was sharing stuff that I really didn't want to share. I don't think the world needs another rant about waiting in traffic or a rude exchange with a stressed out person.

So, I thought about it and what I know is INSPIRATION. I am in love with discovering new ways of inspiring myself. I am open to all forms of it, whether it be words or pictures or people or events. So, I've decided since I'm remaking the blog, I'm also going to redefine what it will be about. It will be snippets of inspiration that I find along the way. I will add good things that make me feel good. Like a really good recipe or a picture of a flower or something funny that Leila does. Or just the dogs being dogs. I'll include exercises or tips on how to lift a mood or brighten your day. I'll definitely include ART, whether it be a work in progress, a cool craft idea for the kids, or maybe even just a photo of my studio when it's all clean and pretty. Also, when I find a great quote I'll include it here. Plus, I won't forget those sweet moments of synchronicity, those moments that would make you cock your head to the side if you were a dog, that make you stop and take note, that let you know that you are on the right path. Simple enough. Enjoy.

So, to kick this thing off. Here's a great quote I found:

"I know nothing with any certainty, but the sight of stars makes me dream."
-Vincent van Gogh

  1. I'm so excited you've embraced the idea of blogging again. The blogosphere will benefit from your input, just like the rest of the world does.
    I would love to add you to my blog roll if it's okay with you.
