Memory Lane

I found myself taking an unprompted trip down memory lane. Just taking a peek at some of my blog posts from a couple of years ago and I have to admit that I got a bit nostalgic. I didn't tear up or anything but it was a special moment that made me feel some kind of way. I guess I needed that. I needed that moment to remind me of "why", the reason that I do this.

When I started this blog eight years ago ( Wow, can't believe it's been that long), my motives were kinda selfish. Well, not kinda, they were. My goals were to improve my writing which doesn't come easy to me and to show off my creative side which I didn't get a chance to do that often (back then).

By my account, my writing did improve. But then I started slacking. Postings were scarce and my writing suffered. Reading those old posts put a battery in my back so hopefully I can keep this new found motivation going just like the Energizer Bunny.

As I started to get the hang of things, another one of my goals was to improve my photography skills. That's one of the main reasons I read a lot of blogs are for the beautiful pictures. I even took a class at one point! Of course that fell by the wayside too. The lighting is so poor in my tiny Harlem apartment so it takes a lot of effort to shoot something that fits my standards. Most of the time I'm fiddling with the pictures for hours in Photoscape trying to get it just right. I've been taking it easy on myself regarding the picture quality for my last couple of posts. My new mantra is, they don't have to be perfect, as long as I'm posting then I'm happy.

I don't know where this post came from. Babies just woke up for their 3am feeding so I guess that's my cue to go. I dint know when my next post will be, but I can guarantee knitting content. Toodaloo!
