Home Is Where The...

{print by Western Editions}

Sometimes, I feel guilty for being a bad blogger. Like last week, I had a lot going on and the blog was the first to suffer. Actually, I'm fairly certain my diet was the first to suffer... hello, pizza-nachos-champagne, but the blog was a close second. And while that guilt reigns supreme... I can't bring myself to write yet another post that says "sorry I went MIA." 

While I set a goal for myself to post every weekday, it doesn't always happen. I know many of you are bloggers too- so you surely understand. It can be hard when real life kicks in, but then I remind myself: The whole reason I ever started this blog was because it is what I LOVE to do. Not because I have to, but because I LOVE to. I love sharing ideas and stories, communicating with readers, making new friends, posing like a goof in outfit posts... the list goes on. The blogging world was created by a group of people with a passion to share what they love. The second it becomes work, a bit of that love dies and it turns into an obligation, not a passion. 

I never want this space to feel like an obligation, I want it to remain my passion. So... while I am sorry for MIAing it once again, I'm also proud for not posting junk that I wasn't passionate about. You're allowed to take a break, zone out [for some people, maybe that means watching an entire season of Pretty Little Liars... oops], and recharge. It will inspire your work to be better, it will refresh your creativity, and it will motivate you to come back stronger than ever. 

I don't think this is a saying, but keep your obligations close, and your passions even closer.  Let's make that our Monday mantra! Wishing you a great start to the week. 

xo, Kelli

  1. Woowoo! Happy Monday to you as well. As long as you keep posting in general your readers (I) will be very happy. :]

    And watching an entire season of PLL is pretty much a requirement.

  2. awe i like that little mantra! and ps-although i love reading your blog daily, i think it's totally a-okay not to post all the time :) we're all human and have other priorities and obligations and sometimes just plain need a break.

  4. I feel guilty about my blog all the time. But then, like you, I have to take a step back and realize that I'm doing this for me, because I love it, so feeling guilty is just a useless emotion.

    P.S. I started reading "Crazy Sexy Diet" and it's completely changing the way I think about food. In a good way, but in a scary way.

    1. Crazy Sexy Diet is actually the book that first changed my whole lifestyle. It is definitely scary... but full of so much good info. I can't wait to hear what you take away from it!! xo
