I am not trying to measure up, nor do I pose these questions out of jealously. It genuinely boggles my mind to think of the creativity and time management that some possess. One of the reasons I blog and so enjoy participating in this community is because of the readily-available inspiration that knocks me on my rear as I scroll through my reader. The fashion, the crafts, the interior design projects, the well-written prose, the photos...so much goodness!
My enjoyment of the occassional "down to Earth" posts by some of the more popular bloggers I follow is largely due to the insight gained into their lives as real people, often learning of struggles, challenges and pressures felt. While a small, shameful part of me thinks, 'Phew, OK, they're normal and just as much of a hot mess as I am,' it also makes me appreciate all the more the efforts made and obstacles overcome to maintain a sense of order and beauty in their online presence. That's no small task and can be so easily abandoned.
Cheers to you lovely bloggers, who inspire so many with your words, photos, ideas and creative offerings, all while navigating your daily walks, whatever that many entail...be it a booming career, a family and homestead, or holding down the fort in your very own way!
