When You Have Nothing Nice to Say...

We all know the old saying. Hell, most of our mothers beat it into our brains...

If you have nothing nice to say, don't say anything at all. 

This week I've felt...off. My typical writing mojo and blog lovin' has been lacking. In fact, I've spent the last 72 hours wondering what was wrong with me. Yeah, that's what I said, wrong.

Yesterday, after leaving daycare in tears and arriving to work welcomed by multiple piles of tasks, I knew
I needed a break. Sometimes a girl just needs a breather. Even from this blog that I love, this community I've created, this outlet I adore. Sometimes life is just too overwhelming.

Whew! That feels good to get out there! 

I have so many posts in draft, stories that need to be documented and questions I need to get out to you mamas. But when it came time to sit at the computer each night I had nothing nice to say. I found myself full of complaints and bitterness. And well, that's not what I want here. 

Yes, I vent. But there's a certain point where venting is just bitching and I'm really trying to be above that {please don't ask my husband how that's going :)}. Each time I came here to type out my stories the same things that are my greatest blessings are the ones I was all too ready to bitch about. 

Life's funny that way isn't it?

All this is to say, it's been quiet around here lately, but with this post I'm washing away that bitterness. And in the days to come I have much to share.







Happy Friday loves! I look forward to catching up on everyone's blogs this weekend!

  2. I love that quote. I've been there and it is not a fun place to be. Everything just feels blah and off. I'm glad you took a break - we all need to recharge at times.

  5. I know exactly how you feel hon! My blog has also been pretty "quiet" lately because I just can't get into the positive upbeat groove...so instead, I choose not to post!!
