Taking a Break From Blogging
For most of my life I’ve struggled with low self-esteem and I started blogging as a means of helping me to put myself out there and to develop confidence in sharing my thoughts and ideas. I also find it difficult to express myself, but this leaves me with a lot of baggage in my brain. Having a place where I could write all of this stuff has been really helpful. It’s not always been easy, but I’ve connected with a lot of kind people through blogging. I’ve even made some close friends through it.
Lately however, life has gotten pretty chaotic. Our oldest family members have fallen ill or passed away. While this has left a deep sadness in our hearts, we are still able to celebrate them by how their legacy continues to live on through us. It feels fitting that as one moment passes another begins with my partner and I preparing our new home together. I hope that we can fill it with the same warmth passed on to us through our parents and grandparents.
With so much going on I haven’t been feeling as motivated to keep writing and I’m ready for a break. I need some time to heal and figure out who I am. When I started this blog I was also unsure that I’d be able to keep something going for so long. There’s that concern that you’ll eventually run out of things to write about. Now that I’ve had some practice I look forward to starting a new and specialized blog some time in the future.
