I actually did go for my afternoon walk today. Never sure where I’m going to end up. Lately, I’ve been trying to change my attitude and spend more time focusing on what I’m grateful for in my life. But it’s a struggle somedays.
Today I’m wondering what the point is of continuing to post on this blog if no one is reading it. I’ve always said I post for myself, but I post for other reasons too. And it’s always nice to get feedback, answers, etc. So day after day, when there’s no comments, I wonder if it’s worth the effort.
But, it’s not just the blog. I find myself reaching out, trying to break out of my shell and there’s no response. Crickets.
And yes, I’m oversensitive and high strung right now. And yes I love seeing my photos and thoughts out on the web. And yes I have to keep putting it out there if I expect a response.
But, I’m just wondering today. Mulling.
Maybe the effort will seem worth it tomorrow.
In the meantime, I’m also thinking about setting goals, getting some projects done, and adding some posts to this effect.
The first things coming to mind are:
2. Projects in office
3. Photos for gallery wall
4. Media room clean out
5. Storage clean out
So, it’s a plan…while I mull. And in the meantime I do always appreciate the comments I get (Hi, Valerie).

Michelle, I read this and your stitching blog at least once a week. And enjoy both a great deal; your stitching is amazing and I have to say I am jealous of your photo work. I have a very simple point and shoot digital camera and am wanting to learn how to use it better. We are reading and listening, but I guess just don’t realize that you wanted to know that we do. Love your work,
It’s hard isn’t it? When you aren’t feeling up to snuff but keep plugging along to try adn get yourself out of it. Girl, I am right there with you!
I love seeing your photowork too and am so envious. I want nice photos too! Mine are terrible. It’s too bad we live so far apart. I think we’d have fun seeing movies and stitching and dragging each other out when we feel blue. *hugs*
i read and enjoy your blogs (both!) so much, i find them both inspiring and encouraging. you’re not afraid to share your triumphs and your difficulties with the invisible audience that is out there lurking. i confess that i save your blog until the end of my list because it’s like a sweet bite of dessert.
