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.

    Sometimes a break is necessary to recharge and take stock of things. I’m sorry to hear about the losses in your life, but I hope your move to your new home will bring a sense of peace and renewal, the start of a new chapter in your life journey. Best of luck with everything and take care of yourself. We’ll be here when you’re ready to return.

      Thanks, I really appreciate it :). This year has had a lot of ups and downs, but I’m treating the move as a fresh start. I hope to leave behind the things that have been troubling me.

    I’m sorry about the losses in your and your partner’s families. That causes stress and with a move too, that’s even more. I’m a great believer in breaks. I take a lot of them and I’ve been getting rid of responsibilities and commitments since last winter. I just don’t have the time or energy anymore. I hope your break recharges your batteries and that you’re back to blogging soon. I will miss your weekly updates. 😦

      Thanks. There’s just been so much happening this year I could really do with more time to recharge at the moment. Looking forward to getting back into it once I’m settled into my new home.

    It’s been a pleasure reading your blog and getting to know you a little. I’d have commented a lot more on all those thoughtful and interesting posts of yours if I’d had the time to do so properly, in the manner they deserved!

    All the best for your life and for any future blogging.

    Man! I’m late to the party. Hey, I hope all is going well in your blog hiatus. If all else fails, eat cheese, eh? Cheese=happiness.
