Blogging has taken over my heart and my life in a way that I never expected it to. It amazes me how many people I have connected with and all the possibilities that have opened up before me. But one big thing that I have learnt recently is that there is a need for balance in all things - especially in blogging!
I never dreamed that I would have hundreds or even thousands of people stop by and read a post or two. This tends to lead to thoughts of how to get bigger, or better, or spread the word further and the ambition grows. The trouble is that I am not an ambitious person and when I connect up with those who want world domination with their blogging, I run into a brick wall.
I feel like I've come full circle this week - I'm returning to my blogging roots and what I originally wanted this blog to be - a place where I can connect with people who want to make the most of life and especially midlife. It's not about making money, or writing what I think other people want to read, it's about being the authentic "me" sharing my thoughts and my world with others.
So, here I am "un-plugged" and feeling free and totally amazing - ambition can get completely out of hand until you find yourself back to square one and in that square is what you truly loved in the first place. I'm now back to square one and it's a pleasant, stress-free place to be. I hope you stay with me as I continue the journey of finding what this life is all about.
