Like a new relationship, some of the uncertainty with this blog is not really knowing how it will turn out. Will I enjoy writing for my blog? Will I have time to write? Will this be just a flash-in-the-pan interest for me and then fade out? Will anybody even read this, or does it make more sense to spend my time privately? Will this be a place where I can comfortably be my imperfect self? Will this be more of a pain than it is worth? I don’t have one set goal for this blog, nor do I really have any audience expectations for it. It is more a way for me to process and articulate some of my ideas and thoughts, as well as to document some of my projects, ideas, interests and experiences. I see it as a sort of a creative outlet as well. Many of my posts may center on parenting, as that is the focus of so much of my time and mental energy these days. But in all of my posts, I hope to arrive at some kind of lesson or tidbit of knowledge. I fully expect that some lessons will evolve and take more shape over time, some will come at me again and again and again, and some lessons will probably even contradict each other…that’s just part of the winding path. We’ll just see where this all leads.
My lesson: The first step may be the hardest, but just get it done (imperfectly is fine), so you can start moving.
