Mission of a Blogger’s Heart

Mission of a Blogger’s Heart

Do you ever wonder if we would be better people if we spent more time alone? Or would we accomplish more if we were attempting less? These were the thoughts I was processing after a much needed conversation with a friend over the weekend. 

Life + Moments + Meaning

I often am left with a longing. A longing for something more. Seriously, isn’t there something more?! 

The world has become too much a part of us, and we are afflicted with the idea that we are not accomplishing anything unless we are  always busily running back and forth. We no longer believe in the importance of a calm retreat where we sit silently in the shade“. – Streams in the Desert.

I have been torn. I love what I do in all facets of creativity. But like any artist, you have to try to get out there.

Try to connect.

Connect to get noticed.

Get noticed by sacrificing.

Sacrificing by going over a threshhold.

A threshold you once used as that line. You drew it in the sand. That line you said you would never cross. I won’t sell myself out. I won’t be so desperate to force something to happen. Not if it won’t happen naturally. The way it ought to happen. 

When am I the happiest?

When things are at their simplest. 

I have dreams, but the truth is, those dreams may not come true. And that’s ok. I’m ok with that. Then one day I will have a new dream. And I’ll dream again. 

I was moved to create a mission statement. Mostly so I could go back and remind myself of important things. When I find I am getting swept away by some current. This will be that branch that saves me from being drifted off somewhere:

To inspire and encourage other’s in their creativity. To make friendships – whether for a short time or life long. To grow in a positive way during my journey in my life and share those experiences in an open and honest way. To not sell myself short or try too hard to make it big. To hold on to my dignity and principles by letting my successes happen naturally, without compromising my time, relationships and walk with God. Rather, I will keep going forward in hope and trust that all things work according to a greater plan than my own. I will enjoy the process – whatever that might be. Whether or not this blog is a raging success or known only by a few. I do this because it brings me joy. It gives me an opportunity to share my struggles and triumphs. To build a bridge that brings me closer to others, near and far.

XOXO, Lidy

    Lidy, from a fellow dreamer, I think you articulate well the issue faced by all creative-types :) We are a driven bunch, and often we love the recognition that our abilities naturally receive from others…but it is important that at all times we keep the truth before us…that we are called by God to bring Him glory in all we do. If at the end of the day nobody has given us notice, but they have been turned to God through the gifts and talents and creativity with which HE has gifted us, then that indeed is success. May you be blessed as you continue using the gifts the Lord has given you to create beautiful things, memories with your family, friendships, craft dreams for the future! May you be richly blessed! I am so glad you have this blog. It IS inspiring :)

  • Such a great post, Lidy!! I love your blog and am so happy to have connected with you! I think it’s going to be a great year and I’m excited to see what it brings.

    • HelloLidy

      Thanks so much Callie – I am so happy we connected too! That alone is worth this whole blogging journey…the great friendships you make along the way :)

      Thanks again for your sweet comment :)

      XOXO

  • I read that devo! I’ve been struggling with this too. I’m trying to relax and so long as I enjoy blogging (and making friends!) I’ll continue doing it. But I won’t force myself to write x amount of posts a week.

    • HelloLidy

      That devotion was so good for me that day. I had a really good heart to heart with a friend and we talked about what it meant to us. It definitely made things a bit clearer – I still love blogging and I am very passionate about it. It’s just this fine line for me, you know?!

      XOXO
