I’ve been told on more than one occasion that I am terrible at sharing. With a crapload of younger siblings, a husband and two kids, I’m used to sharing the little stuff like clothes, books, movies, a house…
It’s the bigger things that I struggle with. Things that are not materialistic, like my thoughts, feelings and personal struggles. And with a world revolving around social media where we can type out/snap/catalog every aspect of our lives with just a few finger movements, I seem to hide as much as possible.
Sarah pointed out to me recently that I, um, do not share at all. Thinking about this, I realized my recent hibernation sure does make writing a blog damn difficult. Which explains why I’ve made 3 posts in 2 months. I seemed to have fizzled out a bit lately. What’s worse, I’ve barely been able to keep up with the other bloggers that I truly enjoy reading.
It’s time I make a change. Or lots of them. And maybe share a little with you on what has already changed in my little bubble.
Back in April, my little family was dealt a hit. It was a shocking blow. One we are still trying to recover from.
It created a domino effect, one piece toppled and soon enough shit came crashing down around us. It happens. We are picking the pieces up, one by one, and rearranging them in a different order. It’s scary as hell, but scary isn’t always a bad thing.
It left us with the wide open question of, What do we want to do now? We still aren’t 100% sure, but we are dipping our toes in uncharted waters and it will be great! Or bad. Who knows!
What I do know is I start a new job on Monday, and I am in the process of going back to school come fall. Both terrify me to the point of panic. Well, that was enough sharing for one day…
In the mean time, my blog is in dire need of some life breathed back into it, and I have to find a happy balance of this sharing business.
So how do you handle sharing on social media? Let me know in the comments below.
Till next time,
