I can feel the tides turning. The winds changing. Life is on the brink of something. The last few months have been eye opening and stunning in their own way. Peaceful. Normal. Routine. And Boring. I found myself the other night continuously saying: I’m bored.
I thought the right path was quitting writing and blogging because of some personal struggles I had been going through such as mental health issues and difficulty finding topics to write about. I was wrong. So now…I’m returning to blogging. However, I am taking a lighter load at the wonderful suggestion of my best friend more like a sister. I will only promise to post one article a week. If I post more than one a week, great. If I don’t, that’s fine too.
What happened during your absence?
Well, in short, I got caught up at work and received a wonderful annual review from my boss receiving a 2% merit raise (the highest amount my boss is allowed to give). We got a new housemate (I’m sure I’ll mention him in future articles…He’s pretty awesome). The baby had an amazing team visit at CHOA with his craniofacial surgeon, speech therapist, and dentist. And I’ve read a crud ton of books (some of which I’ll talk about in future articles).
What is coming next?
I don’t know. I have no plans. I’m not putting myself under that kind of pressure. Basically, I’m going to write what and when I feel like it. I’m going to enjoy it fully this time rather than feel like I have to put out this many articles and on these days at this time. I’m going to recapture my love for writing again. I hope you will follow me on this journey as well.
