Jeepers it’s been a long time since I’ve been sitting behind my computer. I mean I’ve been doing a bit of work every now and then, but sitting here working on the blog is something I haven’t done in forever. It feels kind of weird to be honest.
I love this blog. Aside from my family and work, it’s one of the biggest parts of my life. It’s great being able to have this place to spew all my thoughts, experiences and dreams. And for all the things that it has enabled us to do and the memories I can look back on at any given time. But I would be lying if I told you that these few weeks “off” haven’t given me a bubble of anxiety in my chest every time I think about it.
I know, I know. The only one putting pressure on me, is, well, um, me. So I have managed to put it on the back burner for now. Which I’m pretty proud of actually. I’ve just totally ignored the twitch in my eye.
The space away from it has allowed me to really remember why I started in the first place. To share our experiences. And I really want to bring it back to that this year. Although I always try and use sponsored posts to still share something we haven’t shared before, this year is going to be a totally different one for us for many reasons. Some of which I can’t really share openly yet (as we’re still ironing out a few things) but it’s definitely going to be a year of less.
Less unnecessary pressure.
It’s not that I’m making any resolutions or anything. In fact, I have absolutely none. I don’t even have a word or a mantra or whatever it is that the cool kids are doing this year. I find that those don’t really work for me. They demotivate me if anything. But I do know that this year will be a year of less, resolutions or not.
Instead, I’m hoping to fill those spaces with more quality time together, more travelling and more living life to the fullest. Which will hopefully mean more stories and experiences on this space.
So here’s to a great year of less and more.
I hope 2018 is a winning one for you so far!
