So, I have a confession to make. I subscribe to notes from the universe via email. I can’t remember how I came across this, it was quite a while ago. I subscribed on a whim and now every day I get an email from the universe (it is free, by the way, and this not a sponsored post). Sometimes they are a little goofy, but many times they are spot on. It can be rather freaky when I get the exact message I need on a particular day.
The other day I got this message from the universe:
Start it; you don’t have to be fancy.
Keep moving; you don’t have to go crazy.
Visualize; you don’t have to admit it.
See the end result; it doesn’t have to be material.
Expect miracles; they don’t have to be huge.
Pretend you’ve arrived; you don’t have to dance on tables.
And above all else, Linda, have fun.
This is why you started it, right?
Life, what a trip –
And it occurred to me that this explains exactly how I feel about blogging.
There is so much about this that fits. I started this blog and it wasn’t fancy. It still isn’t particularly fancy. But I started it, and it is all me.
The end result doesn’t have to be material! I would like to repeat that one ten times. I’m really writing this blog for my own enjoyment. I love the process. The furniture makeovers, the room makeovers, the photography, writing the posts, I enjoy all of it! I’m not doing it to make money, I have the accountant day job for that. I don’t get any ad revenue, no one pays me to review their products, and I’m not looking for those things. I am selling furniture of course, but I can do that just as easily without the blog.
I still have to work on pretending I’ve arrived. I’m not even sure how I would define that. But I think I might go ahead and dance on tables anyway.
But most importantly, I am having fun! That is why I started it!
So, if you’ve been thinking about starting your own blog or beginning any sort of adventure, let me refer you back to today’s message from the universe. Start it; you don’t have to be fancy!
