Guilt and Candidness

I have been gone for a very long time, and I am flooded by guilt. However, a lot has gone on during my time away. My family moved, I am pursuing other hobbies, and some other stuff. Plus, I was so incredibly overwhelmed by all of the beauty stuff I had that I made a vow to not buy anything unless I needed to replace it, or if it was mark. (just because, I love mark. stuff, and I have cut back on that too).

Here's the other thing, I am not wearing much makeup AT ALL. Most of my makeup is stored in a plastic container, tucked under the bed. So, I kept looking at the the blog, and wondering what to do with it. At first, I lost motivation to write due to laziness, then I stayed away because of guilt. Now, I don't know. I don't want to get rid of this blog because I love to write, and I love the sense of community. But, at the same time, I don't want to promise to come back and then not write at all.

I need to be rational. I still want to review and share, but I might start writing once a month, or when I get inspired. Then I can assess the situation. This blog is like a journal. I have the journal on my nightstand, but I don't write in it every night. Sometimes I am consistent, and then other times, I am like, "Oh, hi! What am I supposed to do with you, notebook?"

So yeah, this is where I stand. Do any other bloggers go through this? How do you keep momentum?

Alright, gonna turn in for now, but I do want to share my love for a moisturizer I found (have already replaced. It feels so good to finish products!)

I go through this regularly. There are some periods when I have heaps to write about and am constantly writing new posts and other times when it's a struggle.

What I do is write heaps of posts when I'm inspired and then set them to post regularly, so that when I'm not inspired I still have posts ready to go.

That is an excellent recommendation. I am going to practice this. Let me know what you think if you try the moisturizer.
