Perhaps this stems from the writer’s block I’ve been experiencing. This week I’ve sat at my computer every night with a handful of post ideas, all of which burn out after three sentences. I’m a writer by nature. How can I have nothing insightful to say? Where is my opinion? Who am I?
I feel like I’ve lost my identity.
I don’t want this blog to be a carbon copy of every other lifestyle blog out there. I don’t want this to simply be a journal of my day-to-day life. So many of my friends have fabulous blogs, and the last thing I want to do is to mirror their content and have you all read about the same fun dinner we had together six times over.
I want to be unique and creative and MYSELF.
Maybe I’m feeling creatively stumped because I’m not the same person I used to be. I went from being an aspiring young professional, to an exhausted young mother. I went from going out with our friends for drinks, to going out with our friends and their kids for drinks (day drinking kind of rocks). I went from being completely focused on my marriage, to hardly remembering the last time we kissed.
I’m different, but maybe that’s a good thing. Maybe I need to figure myself out to become a better me, and therefore a better mother, wife, and (dare I say it) “blogger.”
Did anyone else feel like they had to redefine themselves, especially you mommas out there? How did you find what makes you YOU again?
