You're never really lost when you're following a river.

The other night, amid a cloud of gloom, I considered letting go of this blog once and for all. For a while I've found it hard to find things I think are worth posting about and also struggled with my own little mind monsters that make me overly critical of quite a lot of things I do. It all stems down to the fact that a few years ago I lost every scrap of confidence I had, even though I am excellent at faux-confidence. Suddenly I understand why I've not been able to hone down one specific career path, because I just don't know what I'm good at. I have a sort of idea but I hate that "Jack of all trades, Master of none" thing. I want to be really, really good at something.

So I'm trying to figure it out. I'm about to venture down a path and I don't know what I'll find at the end. It's scary, exciting and if you don't push me I'll run back the way I came. I emailed some of you to ask for advice on how to get to where I would like to be. I still haven't decided on how I'll get there. Sometimes I feel like I'm floundering a little...a lot!

I decided to keep blogging because I couldn't bear the thought of giving up this wonderful community of people who are so darn helpful. Bloggeroo's, I think you are awesome.

Apologies that this is a me, me, me post! We've all got to get this stuff out and ask for help, right?


  1. I know exactly how you feel...well I feel I do. I am also a jack of all trades. Time to get serious! I hope you find what you are looking for. x

  2. I'm so glad you've decided to keep going with it! I may be a bit rubbish about keeping up to date and even more so with commenting, but I do love to visit xx

    And I hope you find your path. You are awesome, you know. Hope you can channel your awesomeness in a rewarding way xx
