Why did I start a blog? It’s something that has been rolling around in my heart/head and that I’ve been encouraged by others to do for a while now. I used to really enjoy writing (and was much better at it) as a teen and I find it a much easier way for me to communicate my thoughts than speaking. I wanted to start a blog to give encouragement to others struggling with chronic fatigue/illness while homemaking, homeschooling and/or homesteading as it can be a real struggle to juggle those while dealing with chronic fatigue/illness…. and it can feel very lonely and like nobody understands why you can’t keep up with it all. I understand. I also wanted to start a blog for recovering perfectionist like me, to show that not everyone has a blog perfect life and that it is okay to stop striving for that and give yourself grace instead of feeling like a constant failure. I want to show that life isn’t always perfect (as much as the perfectionist in me wants it to be.) But that you can still have dreams and passion in life and find the joy in the struggle. I’m not always good at finding the joy in the struggle myself… So this blog is to show me as much as anyone that there is a joy to be found. I’m also hoping to keep my perfectionist-self accountable to showing my life on this blog as it is, not how I want it to be. Ironic thing is that perfection is what has kept me from starting this blog sooner. Which goes to show that I need to start this blog, give myself grace, and ditch the perfection even more than my title suggests. 🙂 So what you will find here is a lot of real life, things that have helped and encouraged me in this journey and whatever God lays on my heart to share. Thanks for visiting and hope to see you again!
