Let’s Begin Again, Shall We?

I’ve thought about returning to this blog for a while. It’s always been in the back of my mind, poking its head up every so often only to have me distracted by something more pressing and immediate.

It’s time. It’s time to begin anew, to recover my voice, dust off my soapbox and remember how to write a sentence which isn’t jam-packed with words like “conversion, acquisition strategy, financial impact” or overflowing with three-letter acronyms.

It’s time to quit stalling on dumb formatting issues and colors and whether or not this site has a logo, those things will take care of themselves in time.

It’s time to stop worrying about the “haters” and whether or not they’re talking smack about me behind my back because the answer is “Yes, they are talking about you but there’s nothing you can do about it. Move along.”

I’m ready to begin. Again.

Stalling

I’ve been stalling on rebooting this blog of mine.

Our kitchen renovation is now done and 20 months of hard labor and sweat equity are at a pause.  It’s time for me to find a hobby to fill the hours that have previously been filled with trips to Home Depot, hammers, dust and paint.

I thought that hobby would be blogging. I expected to jump right back in, bring the stories, show off the hard work that we’ve slaved over for so long and then realizing when faced with a blank post that I have no idea where to start. Oops.

I think of great  insights and things I would love to share every day but struggle to sit down in front of the computer and compile them into cohesive thoughts.  Truth be told, I’ve been reading other blogs lately and comparing their great insight against what I could possibly bring to the table. It’s the perfectionist in me, with it’s little voice nagging, nagging, nagging.

It’s time for that little nagging, perfectionist voice to be quiet, for me to embrace the reality that no one person is perfect and for me to dig deep, find my blogging voice again (now that it can be heard over the hammers, impact drivers and compressor), pull out my soap box and pound on the keyboard a bit.

 

More soon.  Very soon.
