Flight and light

I feel as though I’m talking in circles about this

drifting away from and coming back to this space

always intending to be here but then…

just not.

When I first began blogging, it felt like flying

like I was a passenger on a jet, destination unknown, but I was really enjoying the journey.

It was a way for me to connect with others during a time when I wasn’t really out in the world very much.

It was a place where I was desperately trying to connect with myself, too.

The parts of me that I had forgotten about or just let slide when I had kids.

The parts of me that were drowned out by the anxious thoughts.

It was an escape, a break, a sanctuary.

And then it wasn’t.

Blogging became big business.

Suddenly there was so much advice about when and how and niches and branding and platforms and ugh, overwhelm!

Now my blogs looks like a locked door to me.

I’m on the outside of that door, surrounded by all the stuff I think I should be doing with this space.

On the inside is my writing.

I need to get back to it.

I don’t know if it will ever feel quite like it did at the beginning.

But I’m not sure if I need it to be what it was anyway.

My life looks different than it did back then, I have more space in the here and now.

What I want is for blogging to feel light again.

I want somewhere I am free to be creative and to write about what inspires me, somewhere I can share what lights me up.

I want to somewhere to let my words out to play.

I just need to remember where I left the key.
