When I wrote about how much I was loving life on August 27th, that was never meant to be a type of “Bye see ya never” post. NOT writing for two months was unintentional, and though I often sat down to write I never really knew what I wanted to say. Currently I’m drinking the world’s best cup of coffee, slept in till 10am (which is a rarity), and am procrastinating between either a lifting workout or a $5 Hot Pilates class. Procrastination is always the best motivation.
I do miss writing- and I want to bring that back in to my life. I DON’T miss being a “blogger”: the whole grow-your-following and bubbly-positivity-all-the-time started to bother the crap out me, and blogs I used to love don’t feel authentic to me anymore. It’s so easy to fall in the trap of page views and free crap and blah blah blah but that’s never what I wanted two years ago when I started to write, I just wanted to write about training and college athletics and food and traveling.
Turns out the key to anything in life is to start before you are ready. So here I am, writing again, because it’s good for me and it makes me happy and I genuinely enjoy practice my writing skills even though I can’t spell worth a damn. I don’t know what I will be writing about every time I plan on sitting down with my laptop, but I really don’t need to know right away. I just need to start.
I’ll post a recap of the last few months here in the next week or so, as I sloooowly get back in the swing of (writing) things! It’s nice to be back. My coffee mug is now empty and I’m feeling the squat rack over the yoga studio today, so I’m off to enjoy the rest of the weekend! Happy Saturday and Happy NOVEMBER everyone. My bad for being MIA.
