Everyday Life: The Ups and Downs and Blogger

11:59 AM

Wasn't there supposed to be lots of princess posts last month? Yes, there were. Wasn't one of Sarah's resolutions this year to blog more? Indeed. So what happened.

Life has been full of many ups and downs lately. On the upside, I have met with some wonderful authors, had my first book signing (post on that coming soon), my energy level is up, and I am making some progress in editing. On the downside, my dad is struggling with some very difficult health issues, editing is slow, and I had a cold for a week.

I wish that I were one of those bloggers that posted no matter what was going on in my life, but I am not. I have to admit, blogging is the first thing that suffers when anything is going on in my life. I used to feel very guilty about this, but in the past year, I have come to understand that it can be a good thing.

Too often with social media, we get so worried about updating our status or writing a blog post that we don't spend enough time doing real things. We are too busy pinning pictures of gardens to plant ours. We hear something funny and we are so caught up in posting it to Facebook, we lose everything else that person says. We are too busy blogging about what God is teaching us to put in into practice.

Don't get me wrong, I like Facebook, Pinterest, and Blogger. I think they are wonderful tools that have greatly blessed my life. However, I must admit that I am a bit proud of the fact that I am not caught it the trap of feeling the need to update/check it often. I can ignore my blog and Facebook page for a week, and that is okay with me, although I do miss it.

Now that I have rambled for a bit, I am getting back to editing. I am almost finished with the first round of edits for A Different Kind of Courage.

  2. Oh, Sarah, I understand. *Hug!* I'm so sorry to hear about your father's struggles. That's tough. Praying for you and your family today that the Lord will hold you all close in His grace ...
