So I just spent my breakfast enjoying a few VLOGs over at some fun blogs that I follow. Both being some great inspiration for me being a new blogger. It seems that every Friday when I sit down to watch them, I have so much on my mind. And then as I continue to watch, they start to address everything that I have been feeling over the past week, or even month. It kind makes me feel relieved to hear everything that I have been thinking come out of some one else's mouth. I am not the only one.
Sometimes I have doubts in myself...Can I really do this?
I find my self getting overwhelmed at moments, trying to be this perfect person, when in reality I am not. I find myself supporting and helping others, which don't get me wrong I absolutely love to do, but it leaves me with no energy to support and help myself. I know a lot of the things I do is because I choose to do them, that's my own doing. But I was talking to my mom the other day, about always going out on a limb and working so hard to get things done for others. And she also told me I need to learn how to say "No". WHAAT!? I know this may sound silly to some. Why is this two letter word so hard to say? I think I sometimes feel that if I say it, that I am a failure. Why, I don't know. I have this strange need to please others, I guess in hopes that they will continue to like me. When I guess in reality, they should really just like me cause they do. I don't know why I struggle with this. Seeing others makes me happy, don't get me wrong. But I think when I try so hard to make others happy, I start to lose sight of what's really important to me.
WHOO! Sorry to get all heavy! I have just been feeling like this the last few weeks here and there, needed to get it off my chest. And I want to be able to share things like this on here, because this blog is about me. So I should share these things, cause that's one of the reasons I started doing this. And I would like to be a life long blogger, so staying true to myself is my number one goal.
I had a few posts that I wanted to work on today so I could share them by tonight, but I have decided to wait on them until tomorrow. I think I need this day to breath...And well clean my house and play with my 2 little munchkins! Cause that's what is important, Right?!
Do any of you experienced bloggers find yourself doubting yourself in this blogging world?? What is some advise that you might have for us new bloggers to continue and ensure longevity for the future???
