Being more organic

I read something somewhere recently, that struck a cord with me.  It has resinated with me very deeply, and I know that I need to change.  I was attempting to use this blog as a personal motivator/accountability for my domestic struggles.  A place to share my struggles and hope that others would be encouraged that they aren't alone.  However, I have come to the place where bloging should be an outpouring of my life, it should come from what I am already doing, not doing so I can blog.  If that makes sense.

In short my attitude shouldn't be, "I need a blog post, so I'm going to do xyz".  It should be "I'm doing xyz, I can't wait to write about it!"

So I have been taking time to reflect.  Figure out ways to better myself, to determine what I want to do about this blog and how I should proceed.

I am still wanting to write, to blog ... but I want it to be organic, I want it to be an overflow of my life not something I feel pressured to do, or that I create projects just to put on this blog.

I want to be less homemaking challenged.

That doesn't mean doing projects and just throwing them up on the blog so that it "looks good" or so that there is content for the blog.

It means actually growing in this area, and doing things for my home because I want to and then sharing it because I enjoy it.

It doesn't have to be perfect.  It doesn't always have to be a perfect "pintrest post", it is just me sharing my story, of being homemaking challenged.  Sharing my goals, my life and my failures with others.
