Sometimes I get frustrated in the same way - in terms of having a proactive blog. But I do think that small moments can help others. Like for me reading this very post, I know someone else in the world wants to act for change in a positive way. And she's a mom, like me.
That counts for something.

Sometimes you have to save yourself before you save the world. I love that pic :)Happy Holiday Sarah and co.

Barbara

I hear ya.

Also, you can't spell superficial with out the word "Super"... :)

Anna

I get that. The only thing I can say is that sometimes you need to post just to get into the swing of things. There's nothing wrong with posting what you consider without purpose. I can guarantee you that you've influenced someone even if it's just yourself. It's a muscle you need to flex so that when the big stuff comes out it comes easily, in a way that people understand. Besides more people will read when they're able get a glimpse of your everyday life.

Do enjoy your vacation, AWAY from the computer. That's important too.

Oh that sounds like a wonderful place to be--Vermont in the Spring!

As for your writing I think you just have to let your thoughts free flow and you will find your voice. All great blogs with wonderful messages were once and often still are family blogs with all the ups and downs and ins and outs that go with family life. I agree with Anna that you need to post to get into the swing of things. And it's the things you think are meaningless that reach out most to others.

i am on day 4 of jet lag (traveling west to east over the atlantic), and i'm finally feeling a bit normal again! i hope you feel better tomorrow.

if you need a computer break, then take one. i completely understand the internal pressure that one places on oneself to write, write write. but small moments are good! i've enjoyed everything you've done so far, even the small ones.

do what's best for you! enjoy your vacation!

Oh, I so know this space you describe in this post. I am there, too. So far, I rarely get past the little moments of our lives. And often, those little celebrations feel right. We don't celebrate the little moments enough. But then, other times, I am so seized by the immensity of these times we live in and I want nothing more than to inspire change and grow, learn, share, and grow some more in the process. Then I feel like I don't want our little celebrations to get lost in the big and deep ideas. And I always fall back to the little moments because within the little moments hide all of the big ideas. Maybe some day the little pieces will come together for an inspiring post.

While you're finding your voice, remember that lots of people are enjoying all the small moments you share.

Blessings

Glad to see you blogging again! Oh, and about the eating thing, we just spent a week in Brittany with the kids and after day 3 of them only wanting to eat potatoes, pasta and merguez, I just said the heck with it, we'll get back into our normal rhythm in Paris, we're on vacation now, let them enjoy (even though I still feel half guilty about it!)

Have a great time on your trip!

I think I'll adopt the same motto: small is beautiful...J'ai ni le temps ni l'envie to blog right now...but I don't want to delete my blog, either.

Wonders Never Cease

I love your photos. You have a beautiful site!
And I know what you mean about the Sadie/Sarah thing. I tried going by Rebecca (my real whole name) for a while, but I always go back to having people call me Becky!
It's nice to meet you!

Kristen

Hey-are you still out there??? Hope all is well.

valentina

Amen, sister. I'm having the same conundrum.
How are you doing? Keep enjoying Felix and everything else will somehow fall into place. Or not, but that might be ok, too.
