A Personal Thought I Need To Share

Hello my dear friends,

this post is about my personal thoughts these days about blogging. I am not even sure what has made me think of writing this today.

When I started blogging just earlier this year I thought it would be easy. Easy as in I would have the time every day to sit down and share my thoughts, creations and more with you. My mind would just pop out idea after idea and I would be able to create many wonderful things. Reality for me is these days the opposite and even though nobody has said anything I almost feel obligated to try and write something.

My life has become so filled with things that weren't expected to happen and I don't know why but I seem to feel I am not living up to what I am meant to do and this includes my blog. Right now I barely have time to sit down and read your blogs in peace and leave comments. Forget about being creative. My mind is filled with worries and so many other things that have to be done and can't be forgotten.

What I am trying to say I think is that blogging is something that shouldn't feel like you have to because you don't want to disappoint anybody but because you love to share with others. I love to share with all of you lovely bloggers just right now my posts will be few with everything going on in my life. I am working on a few of my creations but I don't know when I will be able to share them with you. I reach out to my creating for peace of mind and rest to take a time out from worrying.

I hope all of you decide not to give up on me and still keep following my blog to see what I will share with you in the (hopefully sooner than later) future.

I hope you are all well.

Have a peaceful and creative day,

Karen B.


  1. Oh Karen I am right there with you! And I for one will never give up on following my afvorite blogs and yours is one of them.
    We all have lives that are filled with challenges and demands and there are weeks when I just want to go read my favorite blogs and that is all I have time for.
    Your blog is your blog and it needs to fit who you are and what is happening for you right now so I will be stopping by and watching for your fabulous new creations whenever you are ready to post them.
    Take care and I will be sending good thoughts your way, stay strong!

  2. tend to what you need to tend to, we've all been there and understand...i'll be here whenever you are ready! prayers & support for you & yours ... blest be :)

  3. Karen, Sweet Lady, not to worry!! I had the same thing happen earlier this year. All summer long I was busy with other things and I was in a state of turmoil over which crafts I needed to focus on because I felt torn in too many different directions and it was becoming mentally exhausting. So I hear you and I understand! Do what you can, when you are able and when your heart moves you to do it!
    Hugs and understanding blessings,

  4. Karen - not to worry. We´ll be here. Everyone needs time away ones in a while. It´s always a challenge to have time for everything. Take your time and take care.
    Sending prayers and hugs your way.

  5. Dear Karen,
    I think most women who blog can say the same thing. But don't worry, we will be here! Take care of what is important in your life and take care of YOU! Sending prayers to you, my dear.
    Hugs and love,

  6. My goodness, life is the every day, the sudden changes and the routine. Blogging is certainly not at the top of the necessity list. It is like a precious visit from a friend when I happen to see you have posted something and I am happy to drop by for a visit. I am thrilled too when others find time to visit my own blog and well, the day to day of life dictates when I make time to put a few words out there for those who follow (or get lost and end up visiting by accident. ) I don't think any of us will "give up" on you at all. Take your time, refresh yourself, let go of all that is unnecessary, take care of the important things and whenever you return to your blog, it will be because you want to, not because you have to. TTFN :)

  7. This is what happens when LIFE gets in the way. I know just how you are feeling these days. With so many ultra personal things going on, there are few precious moments to spend reading and commenting on everyone's blogs, never mind trying to write one of your own. This is exactly what has been happening with me. Don't give up though. I'm sure you'll be on track in time. God Bless, Jean

  8. I've often wondered how in the world others post every day, to have creative thoughts pouring out to post about, creating amazing pieces all the while snapping photos in the process. I considered you Karen one of these superbloggers and though I enjoy your posts (and I must admit at times a little envious of your super creativity and beautiful blog), at NO TIME would I EVER want you to STRESS about putting together a post so you didn't disappoint a reader. I'm so glad to find out you have a life outside of blogland too. Live your life sweetie. Where in the Rules does it say we must post every day. Maybe more of us need to get back to reality. Hugs and Blessings to you until we meet again....

  9. no worries mon amie! you "be" where you need to be..want to be..have to be. we will always be here for you whenever you have the time to check in. that's what this should bel about! NO pressures! thoughts and prayers are with you!

  10. Oh Karen, we will waith for you, even from Belgium!
    If you need time for yourself, just do. Blogging meens to be fun!

    Hugs from Belgium,

  11. Oh sweet Karen ~ I totally agree
    with what the other ladies have
    written ~ Blogging should be fun and
    not a thing you add to your list to
    do ~ I think alot of times I am guilty of that too!


  12. This is not an obligation!!!! you can be sure we will be waiting for you, you can came back when you are ready, but take all the time you need

  13. I love your blog, however, when something you love becomes a "job" you need to take a break. We have all been there and we will all hang in there with you because you are worth it!!

  14. I soooo understand what you are saying girl.
    I think we have all felt this way one time or another.
    It takes a lot of time to write, visit others and all we feel like we should be doing to be a good blogger! phooey!!

    Do what is good for you.
    Do not be pressured to do posts for us.

    We are meant to be creative. It is a gift from God, and you should use it.
    If you do not have time to show us pictures, that is OK.
    Just pop on here once in awhile and say hi.
    We will always be glad to see you. =)

    sweet blessings,

    barbara jean

  15. Dear sweet Karen...please don't you worry!! Our personal lives always, ALWAYS take first place and guess what? We all understand! Just do what you need to do....and share when you can share. That's the beauty of blogging ~ you set your own schedule and post when you can. We'll all be here to enjoy the goodness when you do have the time dear friend ~ hugs and love, Dawn
