And I'm ready to do more than just blog.
This past year I took some much needed time to figure out what it was I really wanted. I spent time relaxing, spent time with my husband, hanging out and reconnecting, and spent time doing something other than writing.
What?! you say? I know!
I didn't worry about writing for several months. And strangely enough, I think I'm a better writer and artist for it. I burned out.
One of my main problems, and also main strengths, is that when I believe in something, I go full out. I go balls-to-the-walls crazy trying to make it happen. That's what happened with my writing: I was so focused on where I wanted to end up, I wasn't paying attention to the moments I was letting pass me by. I stressed myself out to the point where it wasn't fun anymore.
And isn't that the whole point? Don't writers write because they love it?
Since I didn't love it anymore, I took a break. I painted, I sculpted, I watched TV... and most importantly, I learned to cut myself some slack.
I've come to a lot of realizations this year, and have actually made an exciting decision ;). More on that as the week progresses, but I wanted to check in now and say that I, Becca Knight, am BACK.
I love blogging, I love writing, and I'm ready to do it all over again. This time, with balance.
Let me ask you: how have YOU been, readers? :) It's good to be back!
