Like me, this blog has gone through a lot of changes. Recently, my blog’s begun to feel like a chore (so did writing, for a little while), and as soon as that happens, I know something’s not right. So I’m listening to David Bowie, who’s telling me to face the changes, and do something about it.
I spent yesterday taking a day-trip to a little beach town in New Zealand, Whangamata – possibly the most chilled place known to mankind (and womankind). Anyway, after buying some new yoga pants and a chicken supreme pizza, I sat on the beach and let myself just stop and think.
When I was having coffee with friend and writer Joy Findlay a few weeks ago, I talked about how putting too much pressure on myself sucked the creative juices out of me. This thought came back to me, and I realised I’d begun to put too much pressure on too many things on my life. My self-expectations were of Willy Wonka grandeur, and frankly, they weren’t making me happy.
So it’s back to the drawing board, and my writing and my blogging are going to be a glorious mix of randomness. I’ll continue to write a few times a week, and continue to accept guest posts if you have something to write for me.
Hugs to all my friends and readers – blogging wouldn’t be the same without you 🙂
