An Obsession of Mine

         I sort of have an obsession with taking pictures of the sky. It just looks so pretty behind my house around sunset. It's beautiful. If you do not care to see an abundance of sky pictures, I'd recommend stopping reading now.

Have a great day,

I need to be more thankful

            It's amazing to me the things I, and even all of us, take for granted in the world. Simple everyday things I take for granted. I'm always wanting more and more and more instead of being thankful for everything I do have.

           Take food for instance. I'm always like, "Oh, I don't want that for dinner." Or, "Oh, I don't like that," when in reality I should be thankful for the food I do have. Whenever my brothers say things like that I often find myself reminding them that there are people who would do anything for that meal they're eating. 

          Or maybe even the people I take for granted in life. It's not just me though, I think we all do it. I hate it when I take people for granted. Or anyone. It's just horrible to me. You think about it and realize that, not everyone in your life will be around until you die. Some people will pass away, others might move on. It's hard. You have to cherish the time you have with people. Because, you don't know how long you'll have them there. 

       I think I need to be more thankful for everything I have. I have so much. I have a place to live, food to eat, a family who loves me and who I love, I have tons. More than I need. I have way more than I NEED. I'm blessed. I just need to be thankful. We all do.

      Thankfulness is a necessity of life. We need to be more thankful. I don't know why this came into mind I just felt like it needed to be said. I need to be more thankful for what I have and not want for the things I don't necessarily need. Because, I am blessed and, I am thankful for all of my blessings.

             Sometimes, I get ideas for posts on here and then, by the time I actually get on here to post them, I forget them. It stinks because some of them make me think, "Wow, that could actually turn out pretty good." Then, I forget them. 

              I'm sure there's inspiration everywhere I just have to find it. To find something interesting, focus on it, and post about it. It can take anywhere from an hour to a whole week just to think up some clever post for you. 

              I miss the days when I had my original blogger blog. (I was on HomeStead Blogger before but, that's another story). :) Butterfly Dreams. I was inching closer to sixty followers. Sixty. It's not 1,000 like those fantastic, popular bloggers but, it was my circle of friends who liked reading what I had to say. It's a shame I deleted it because, I'd go back and read to try and find what people liked so much. The reason could be that I don't put enough effort into my blog anymore. Before, I spent every hour of every day trying to find something interesting to post about, or worrying to check and see if I won a giveaway. 

              Personally, I think one of the biggest parts of getting more followers is being honest. Being myself. Not trying to be the other blogger girls who are so popular because, I'm not them. I'm me. I'm Kelsey. Nobody else is exactly like me. I think that's amazing. That no two people are exactly alike. Maybe there are similarities but there aren't two of the exact same person. Identical twins aren't even exactly the same. They have different likes and dislikes. I like the fact that I'm me. That I'm unique. All of us are. I like the fact that I have a specific, wonderful, undiscovered purpose in this world. Because, I know I wouldn't be here if God didn't have a plan for my life. I'll just have to discover it. In time I will but, for now I'll enjoy being a teenager.

         I feel like I have to post something inspiring and interesting on here to keep whoever reads this reading. Like, maybe you won't want to read anymore if I don't write something interesting and deep and meaningful. Then, there's the other times where I feel like all I do is try and tell you how to live your life and being too inspirational, and too desperate for you to like me at the same time.

         This may not have been the most inspirational, wonderful, amazing post ever but, it let me say some things. I'm happy with that.

Awfully Awful Author

               The title says it all. I'm an awfully awful author. I said I was going to post more (sort of like a New Year's resolution), it's been over two months and, nothing. It's just hard to get inspiration to post when I don't have many readers reading this little blog of mine.

               I have missed blogging though. I'll try and get back into it. I definitely will. I may not have many followers but that's where I started when I started blogging in the first place so, what's the difference? 

               Not much has gone on in the past two months since I last posted. My little brother turned twelve (oh gosh, he's growin' up!). My Dad's birthday was yesterday. I've just been mainly focused on not failing 9th grade to be completely honest. 

              I've been doing some writing but not nearly as much as I used to. I think blogging helped improve my writing skills, and with the lack of blogging there's not exactly any way to improve it. Sometimes I write stupid little short stories when I'm bored but, not really anything serious.

              My Aunt's baby shower is in a few weeks. That should be fun. I've only been to a few baby showers but they were a long time ago.

                I still take pictures from time to time but, not nearly as much as I used to. I guess I'm just growing up. I'm not the little eleven-year-old, blogger girl anymore. I've grown up a bit. I still enjoy taking pictures and writing but, I don't spend four hours on the computer blogging or reading blogs anymore. I don't do whatever it takes to win a giveaway. I hardly go on blogs or blog myself but, like I said before, I'll try and get back into it. Because, I really enjoyed blogging and reading some of my favorite blogs. (Adorkably Anne and Lovely are my two most favorites :)

              I guess that's all for now. I'll try and get on here and post either tomorrow or Saturday :)
