Step By Step / by Elise Joseph

"E.L. Doctorow once said that 'writing a novel is like driving a car at night. You can see only as far as your headlights, but you can make the whole trip that way.' You don't have to see where you're going, you don't have to see your destination or everything you will pass along the way. You just have to see two or three feet ahead of you."

- Anne Lamott, an excerpt from Bird By Bird 

I may not be writing a novel, but this thought on life as a whole has really been on my mind lately. Personally, I've been struggling to find a balance between a new job, my freelance work, my blog, my relationships and my personal time. As much as I enjoy each of these things, it can be really difficult to juggle it all.

While I can't see ahead to the future, I can see a couple steps in front of me, and right now that means reprioritizing some things in my life. I've decided to free up some time by cutting back on the blog a bit. I love Pennyweight and sharing my inspirations and experiences with all of you, but am planning to aim for weekly posts, as opposed to daily. I am hoping this takes some stress off my plate, while providing you with the best content possible. In the meantime, I will still be sharing on Pinterest and Twitter regularly.

Your support over the years means the world to me. I have met so many amazing people in this blogging community and am truly grateful for each and every one of you. Thank you for listening and continuing to join me on this adventure.
