I've Stopped Caring

I don't post much on my blog anymore. To those looking at it objectively, I guess you could say I've stopped caring. 

But is that true?

The truth is, I suppose I have stopped caring. 

I've stopped caring about being internet famous. Because honestly? Who cares about how many Instagram or Twitter followers I have. 

I haven't stopped caring about real relationships that I've created with other bloggers online OR in real life. 

I've stopped caring about posting every day, about wasting my time on writing or putting together content that, let's be real, nobody cares about. 

Instead, I care about authentic content. It may not all be great, but I make an intentional decision to put together posts and hit publish. That's what matters. 

I've stopped caring about presenting a perfect life, because my life is far from perfect. 

Instead, I care about presenting myself as real. I am self-employed, my husband is a student, and we currently live with my parents. That is real. 

I've stopped caring about sharing every little thing on Instagram or Facebook or Twitter. I just can't any more. 

Just because I don't share it with the world doesn't mean it didn't happen.

So, if it seems like I just don't care anymore, know that it's not true. I care almost too much. About the important stuff is all.
