Throwing Away the Calendar (by Melissa)

I was thinking today about time frames for the blog. Truth be told, I have been obsessing about this project for weeks. One failed website and many scratched out pages of a notebook later though, here I am. 

Let me explain a little bit about my personality. I am a planner. Everything has a time frame in my mind. I go by increments of time and they are my comfort. I like calendars, clocks and gadgets that let me know "when". The problem with that is that stress accompanies those self-imposed time frames when they don't make sense. 

For the blog I have a calendar in my head of how things should be "exactly so", which on the surface isn't a bad thing. Organization isn't a dirty word! However, when it is holding you back because you want everything to be perfect then it is time to rethink why you have those specific time frames in mind. 

I am tossing the calendar to the side. Oh yes, I said it. The start date for the blog is now. I mean, why not? It's here. I am here. Emerald is here. You are here. Pursuit of perfection be damned, let's have fun. 

 So the next post is going to be an introduction to Emerald, who is very sick so I am not entirely sure when she will feel up to it. 

We both look forward to getting started with writing! Our topics are going to center around the "featured person" which will be a person we either interview or they write their own bio. Then we will write our own articles about topics of the mind, body and essence of a person. Those three elements support the person as a whole. 

We hope you enjoy the blog and thank you for reading! Don't forget to sign up for our facebook page. You can find us at Unconditionally You or in the search bar on facebook.

Thanks for the follow! I absolutely LOVE this post. I am the exact. same. way! I've always thought it would be "cool" to start a blog and got that idea when my son was maybe 2 years old. "Crap," I thought, "I should have started a blog when he was born. I can't start now!" So when I was pregnant with my daughter, I started one...and it lasted 3 months. Why? Because I fell behind with posting when life got in the way and I couldn't justify just writing another post and getting back into it. There was just too much time between posts and it didn't make sense to me. Haha...stupid, huh? I've gotten really busy again and have slacked on Race Cars & Ruffles, but I'm totally okay with it now! I love my blog and I intend to stay with it :)
