Moments in Life and Nature

7 Mar

Inspirations in nature - playing with rocksWriting a blog can be really tricky sometimes.  It can be easy to get caught up in how many likes and shares and comments there are and at the end of the day, that is definitely not what I enjoy about blogging.  Don’t get me wrong.  I love that others are finding value in what I’m writing about or sharing.  It’s wonderful, actually.  But it’s not the root of blogging for me and I need to remind myself of that sometimes.  For me, the root is the joy I feel in sharing my family and the artful life we live.  It’s having a visual diary of special moments in our lives that I can share and look back on.  It’s having the courage to say, here’s my take, my idea, my challenge and for me that is where the real value is.  So, my intention is to keep it simple, remember quality over quantity and to enjoy simple moments like these, with my family.

    We definitely were on the same wavelength today. Hasn’t that happened before? I love this post, Meri, and your photos are beautiful as always. It’s so good to have the ability to check in with yourself and with your kids…to remember that life is really about the present moment. Wonder what topic we’ll cover at the same time next? ha! xo bar

    I need this reminder more often than I care to admit! I started blogging originally to record and share the activities I do with my daughter, but it’s easy to get so caught up in promoting the blog that you miss out on the fun stuff. Your photos are beautiful!

      Thank you Emma. I would guess a lot of bloggers can relate. Thanks for taking the time to read my post. Glad it was helpful.
