Lately, there has been a major disconnect between my blog/social media life and my real life. Normally, things are pretty in sync for the most part, but recently I’ve done a terrible job of keeping up.
I’m currently in a situation where several good, big, important things have happened almost all at once. While it’s a good problem to have, it’s forced me to look at my life plate and decide what’s a priority, what’s an obligation, and what’s a chore.
I haven’t been able to decide in which pile the blog belongs.
And to be honest, that sucks. This has been a real part of my life for over five years. It’s something I started out of sheer boredom in my first year of graduate school and I’ve grown it into something much more than I could have ever imagined.
But since starting this blog, I’ve graduated, moved, gotten married, built a house, started a career, had a baby, ended a career, and started new things. And those are just the major, public highlights.
There have also been sickness and deaths and major, major life-altering instances that have occurred that no one but my close family and friends know about (because, privacy.)
There have also been amazing things that have happened that no one but my close family and friends know about (because, no one likes a braggart.)
This is not meant to sound dramatic or melancholy or cryptic – I’m actually happy to be sharing this because I’ve been wanting to write this post for a while now, but I felt silly putting it out there if I didn’t have the answer.
But I’m learning that it’s really not a big deal to not always have the answer.
I have things scheduled and in the works for the blog in the upcoming coming weeks, so nothing is changing, but transparency has always been the name of my game. I have no witty or proper way to end this post, so to put it simply, this is where I’m at.
