Two weeks ago I attended my local church service. And you guessed it, the topic was yet again pointing at me right between the eyes. The message? Keeping up those people connections.
I cringed and sunk into my pew in pure guilt. Being online is a wonderful experience, however I’ve allowed my online time to take away my personal people time in a big way.
My 8 day Bella Rustica experienced further cranked up the guilt volume once I got home. I missed the Nashville friends I just left!

But I did something different when I was at Bella. I hung out with those I didn’t know and don’t blog alongside and made friends. We played, we workshopped, we hung out. And didn’t blog. And I survived! And learned a whole bunch.
I learned I really missed people interaction. Someone with thousands of online followers CAN indeed be lonely.
We connect easily with those online because we hang out online. What’s stopping us from connecting with those locally while still embracing our passion?
Us. We stop us.
But I have even more to fix. People matter indeed, but so do other things I’ve been letting slide. I want to fix those too.
Here’s the deal. We all have the same 24 hours in which to eat, sleep and do. But it’s my belief that we attempt to do too much. So how do we do it all?
Not sure, but I’m joining Nester’s 31 Day Challenge to help me get back on track with junk that matters.
Some posts will be short, others long. Some will be picture heavy, some with none. Because what’s most important here isn’t blogging about it, but rather DOING it.
Life matters. Goals matter. People matter. Rusty junk matters. It all matters. But we can’t do it all. Or can we?
Need help too? Watch how I change my own life and priorities and jump in!
Rust will also be involved.
