I hit publish on post #2 a few weeks ago and now find myself in that old familiar place of writing and deleting and writing and deleting. So, instead of continuing that relentless cycle I decided instead to look at what’s holding me back.
Turns out the only “thing” holding me back from hitting publish again has her fingers on the keyboard right now….she’s staring at these words, reading them over and over and OVER again and while her proofreading skills are top notch that’s not why she continues this little game.
You see the woman behind this page is a PERFECTIONIST!
My bio could probably read “Hi! I’m Stacy. See definition for Enneagram 1.” I like rules and I pay attention to the details and I’ll be damned if you find fault in my work. And while I take pride in all that I am and do I also know that I give far too much weight to what those around me think. So, I felt like my blog needed to have a clear cut purpose and each post needed to be perfectly curated. I wanted to put my thoughts and ideas to paper but at the same time not ruffle any feathers and surely didn’t want my words critiqued and dissected.
News flash sister…EVERYONE’S got an opinion and not everyone is going to like yours!!
Ok, maybe that was more for me than you, but with that comes the freedom to be unapologetically me and so follows this blog. I’m a Mom, a Wife (to a darn good football coach), a Realtor, and as year 33 comes knocking at the door I’m just finding out who I’m meant to be. So while I may feel the need to define the purpose of this blog I’m willing to step into the unknown and allow this blog to wear many hats and serve many purposes. This blog will bare my heart and my thoughts and will be what I need it to be day-to-day and season-to-season.
