Hey there dolls!
We’d like to introduce you to the lovely…
Amanda of Royal Daughter Designs!!!
I’m over at her place sharing a brand new recipe, so it would rock if you popped over to her place to say hi when you’ve finished sharing some love with her here!
Since I’m on a blog break right now, I wanted to take a minute to share with you the importance of rest.
We in the blogging world tend to use the term “in real life” to describe the part of lives that happens on the other side of our computer screens and keyboards. But as it turns out, blogging is our real lives. The networking, the connections, the pictures and stories – that’s all a part of our real lives.
But that’s it: a part.
Unfortunately for me, I tend to let blogging and designing take over my life. And so it is vitally important for me to periodically take a step back to refresh and refocus on the rest of my life…the part that does not include blogging.
For me, resting from blogging happens every few months in the form of a vacation, of sorts, from blogging and (most) social media. (It’s true: you will see me tweeting while I’m on my blog break – I stay in touch with friends via twitter. That’s justified, right?!)
But resting from blogging may look different for you. It may mean that you step away from your computer on the weekends so you can focus on being present with your kids. Or maybe you turn off all electronics at 10:00 p.m. so you can unwind and get to bed at a reasonable hour.
The point is, please don’t underestimate how important it is to take time to rest, to step back from blogging and be present in the life you’ve been given. We have this one life to live, let’s not get so wrapped up in blogging that we forget to live.
Thanks so much to Amanda for sharing with us today and for being the Bloggie Bestie this week! Even while on vacation!
Again, please share some love below and then visit her place at Royal Daughter Designs!
Have a lovely day dolls!!!
