Start small. Start now.

A friend posted this picture on Instagram the other day with the caption… If you haven’t been writng, start small, start now.


I’ve blamed our move and me being home with my four kids 24/7 for the lack of my appearance on this here little blog. For a while, I felt like I had nothing to say. Like my creativity was suffocated to death by the constant presence of my kids and busyness of being a mom.

Maybe there is truth to that, maybe not. And I can’t deny the fact that these last few months have sent me into somewhat of a lonely valley….pulling away from the outside world.

That being said…lately, I have felt the need/want/desire (i don’t know what to call it) to write. Ideas and thoughts and opinions have started bouncing around in my head again.

So what’s my problem, you ask?

Just starting. Plain and simple. Taking the leap back into the game. Putting myself out there. Ignoring the insecurity and fear.

So when I saw that picture, I knew it was time to start again.

So here’s to starting.

Starting small. Starting now.


But to be completely honest, I think the truth is that I don’t want to go back to counseling right now, so blogging seems to be my only alternative. Sorry in advance, folks. Do you charge by the post or per page visit? I’ll try my best to pay up…or at least will try to give you something good to read on here. And hopefully you’ll see me before next month… fingers crossed ;)

    We love to hear from you. We’ve all been there. Life is a yoyo, you’re up and then you are down. I just love to hear from someone who doesn’t want me to wipe their bumm or be their chauffeur while they leave French fries and gummy candy all over my car or need me to…. Whoa Sorry about that. No pressure but it’s nice to know that I’m not the only one with lonely, insecure and overwhelmed feelings even though I’m smiling at the checkout counter.

  3. Amber, I’m so happy I was able to give you a little kick start!! I need them all the time. We’re all in this together. Keep the words coming, no mattter what.

    Unload on us. :) I know all of this too well, the overstimulation from kids clouding creative ideas, then the ideas floating around and no time to tie them down, and the being lax to get started just because I feel I can’t do something big right now, and the feeling out of the online loop lately. Kudos to you on getting your words started again.

    A familiar problem, no matter what stage of life! I like art journaling with captions.
