Back In A Month

I need to take a break.

I don’t know how to write this in words that make sense to anyone else but me but I’m going to try.

Right now I am struggling with my blog. I find that I feel guilty about not posting or knitting something new…and right now it is more of a chore then the joy it used to be for me.

The situations around me do not change and I feel stuck even as I evolve and I know that I seem to be writing the same things over and over.

I was waiting for a sign to make this all make sense to me…and today it snowed. The Goddess told me sometimes in order to connect you need to disconnect first…like a reboot.

So this is me disconnecting from my blog for a month. After that time I will reassess all my blog issues.

In the meantime I hope to get caught up on all the blogs I am behind on…read my e-mail…and get caught up on Ravelry.

I’m going to take this time away to take a good hard look at my life and what I want vs what I can actually accomplish.

I’m not depressed. I’m burned out. I’ve burned the candle at both ends for too long and I need to step back for a bit.

They say the hardest part of a journey is the first step.
See you all in a month.

I am always awed that you are there to support and uplift me. I am blessed to have a beautiful cyber family like you.

Take care Ruinwen and have a good break. I think you are making a good decision. When blogging gets to be another chore on the list, it's time to step back for a while. I did and I was always glad at the time that I did. Came back though, for the joy of writing and interacting with my cyber readers and friends. I've missed your visits but I DO understand all that you have going on in your life that needs to be first priority.

Hugs my dear and BFN, G

If this is what you feel you have to do, I think probably most of us will still be here if you decide to return. That's what friends are for, to support your decisions no matter what.

Breathe deeply and think LONG thoughts.
(((((hugs)))))

Deep breath... first, I want you to be happy. Second, I want to stay virtually connected, so I hope we both can.... blessings of spring to you as you allow yourself to reboot.
