Hello.

I'm back. And because I've been gone wordlessly for so long, I think I owe you all an explanation. Nothing serious has happened, I have simply gotten stuck in this rut where I want things (in my blog and my life) to be a certain way, to be just like how I imagine they should be, but when they can't or the obstacles get to high, I panic and do nothing at all. For example: I've been wanting to post my own photos more instead of only ones I find online, but I can't find my cord to transfer photos onto the computer and they don't sell them anywhere I've looked. So rather than continuing to post and explaining the problem, I freeze up and without a word disappear, because I'm sure my blog isn't good enough and now never will be because I can't post my own photos. I'm sure none of you were thinking that, you may have been wondering if I was making things any more (yes I am, and I want to show you, really I do!) but I'm sure none of you were judging me harder than I was judging myself. Besides, blogging shouldn't be about getting more followers and comments, it should be about having fun and being myself, right? So I'm back, hopefully wiser and a little more free as well. I will continue to look for a way to share my photos with you all, but for now I guess we're just gonna have to stick with inspiration, which is never a bad thing. I would like to hear your thoughts though and know if there's anything you'd like to see or hear more of.
Thanks for understanding!
Love, Clara

PS: what do you think of the new look for the blog? I think I like it, but I'm never sure...

We always judge ourselves more than others are judging us. Often, others aren't even anywhere close to judging us! I struggle with the same things. So yes - post what makes you happy. Because what is the point of having a blog if it only serves to make you unhappy? (I ask myself this all the time when I start getting too uptight about things about my blogs. Hehe.)
I have nothing specific I'd like to see more of... anything you post will be wonderful! <3

P.S. I think your new blog look is spiffy! I really love these shades of blue.

Dear Clara, your blog is more than "good enough". I, for one, love it. And your new design is lovely. x

Clara dear, 122 people read your blog. Say it to yourself: one hundred and twenty-two. That's a lot of people. Your blog is more than wonderful darling and I'm so glad you're back because you always seem to have this beautiful insight on life's everyday events that makes them all the more unique so... thank you for writing

And the new look is amazing :)
With love, E

Welcome back :)

I get caught in a loop of wondering what to post based on what people will like... In the end, I think it's best just to do what makes -you- happy. And people will enjoy it because it's genuine and from the heart.
