I have what seems to be a million blog posts started, but everything is slow going as I learn more and more about everything that is included in blogging. It is so fascinating to me, but it also means a slow and steady uphill learning curve. It means writing for only five minutes here and ten minutes there. It means needing to learn to have more patience with myself and most importantly taking the time to enjoy the process. This following your heart thing sure does take a lot of time. haha. See. Patience. Patience.
I know that every day I take time to delve deeper and learn more and test out recipes for just becoming me I am following my heart a little bit more. That even though no one is reading or commenting that I am doing something that makes me smile. I am doing something that is outside the realm of my normal, that maybe one day this will be my normal. Setting up photo shoots of food that I love to eat and want to share makes me so excited. See?
Or this one…
I am busy over here just not completely prepared to post my recipes until they are exactly where I want them to be. So until that time you are stuck listening to the life lessons I am learning and also other random tidbits from my life. Okay, you are done with me bombarding you with pictures of food, right?
That’s not even the best part, either. The best part is getting to know others in the blogging community. Reaching out and participating in things I hadn’t even known about at this time last year. I just signed up to be a recipe tester for a well known blog. Something I wouldn’t even have considered doing. I haven’t heard back yet, but even if I don’t get picked it is still awesome that I put myself out there. Every day is a new day and although we all know this what are we doing exactly to prove that? I get so stuck in my every day life sometimes that I forget how special and what a gift it is to have a new day. To make every day count. To feel more accomplished than I did yesterday.
Following my heart is so important to my well-being. To being a better person to all those around me. When I am constantly ignoring my heart I can feel this involuntary tug trying to lead me back again. This year I have chosen to simply follow my heart, go to my happy place and stop listening to all the naysaying in my head. The head can be both a great tool but my own worst enemy. I can get so wrapped up in my head that I forget my heart. There is so much out there for us to discover. It’s actually pretty awesome when you think about it in those terms. Super uplifting too! Hope you have a fabulous day!
What types of things are you doing to make each day count? What are you doing to follow your heart?
