The Internet is a great source of inspiration for me. It's full of creativity, talented people, beautiful things. Most of the time I walk away from it feeling refreshed, encouraged, excited about trying something new, validated. But sometimes it becomes something more complicated as others' lives are compared against my own, envy sets in, doubts about what I'm doing, I feel drained.
It means I have to pull away and become more grounded in my life. I have to stop reading some people's blogs, stop following them on twitter, block their feed from facebook, and take some time to reflect on what's making me feel so small. I need to make changes again to be inspired by my own life and not just others'. I need to reconnect with God and be present and content with what I've been given. I've been grateful but not completely content.
Hopefully I will be more creative and inspired by me soon. I will probably have more to share then besides weekly updates of my little one.
