The Easiest Way To Do It, Is To Just Do It

Pretty Confused Do It

I've always been one of those people who finds it difficult to start things. It's not that I am a lazy person, but because starting anything always seems like such an impossible task. That first step is always the hardest is definitely true for me. It almost feels the same way at the moment with blogging. The longer I was away from this place the harder and harder it became to come back. Just the idea of writing a single post began to seem like a mammoth task that I would never have any hope of completing.

Every day for the last few weeks I have thought about blogging; about what I wish I had shared. It felt like I was brand new to this again, with no idea how to start. How would I explain my absence? Would anyone still be interested in reading whatever prattle I have to say? Could I even work out how to use my camera after all this time? Finally I began to question why on earth was I allowing a hobby I enjoy to cause me so much stress? Blogging is something I love, something that makes me happy, I knew that if I didn't begin again soon I never would and that thought horrified me. 

And so I'm back. My priorities have changed slightly and I'm still not sure how motivated I will be, I might be posting less often, I might be posting more. I want to shift my focus back to blogging though, think less about stats and how appealing my content is and more about sharing myself and the bits of my life that make me happy. I want to build up a place I feel safe sharing again. I can already feel the butterflies going in my stomach at the thought of pressing publish, though I have no idea why. I'm really hoping the adage is true the easiest way to do it, is to just do it.
