I have been living life vs blogging life, so I stopped blogging my 21 days early.
That was kind of a preview.
Living Life vs Blogging Life
My blog is an outlet, a home and a place for me to share what I know to help Gutsy women not just survive but thrive.
I have written thousands and thousands of words, and I have published almost 800 posts. I have given countless things for free, on most days of the week and have been consistent with giving away the information I used to crave while reading other people’s blogs.
The truth (for me) is that spending so much time and energy doing this – blogging life – has taken away from the true essence of existence – living life.
Would I love to blog three times a day and have my blog readership grow immensely? Of course. Who doesn’t want a popular blog? More importantly, who doesn’t want to inspire thousands and thousands of people?
But I believe, no I am certain, that living life more will ultimately mean that I can do more to help and inspire more.
Because no one ever solved the world’s problems by sitting on their blog talking about the doing all day long.
Am I leaving my blog for good? No way!
Am I making changes immediately? Yes. I must. Life isn’t waiting for me.
How am I scaling back? I will probably only blog 1-3 times per week. In return, I have so many things up the sleeves.

Do you see what I mean?
There is so much life to live….and I am so excited to live it.
p.s. Living begins today. Ryan and I are taking our 9-year-old nephew to Tahoe for the night. No blog. Just: eat. play. love.
Get out there and LIVE, friends!
You will heal. I will help.
