Well, sort of.
I did tell you that I am the furthest thing from "meditative", but lately I've been feeling like that was an understatement.
For those of you who had been reading my blog religiously, you have likely noticed that I have vanished. After my cousin died, I decided to take some time for myself to heal and reconnect. In taking this time, I came to the realization that I haven't done so in a very long time. I have taken breaks now and then but have done so half-heartedly. You know when you rest but you feel guilty about it? Well I am the Queen of that.
Over the course of the last month or so I've felt SO GUILTY. I've thought about my blog and all the lovely people who have supported me to make it grow (in such a short period of time!) and then just felt bad for being so "lazy" in not posting. Then I read an article in none other than O Magazine that talked about the concept of resting like you mean it. The article explained the need for real, guilt-free rest, especially when you feel like you are blocked or are at a low point. Don't get me wrong, I'm not depressed or anything like that. I'm fine. I just feel like I need to recharge my battery. (See The Secrets to Surviving Life's Low Points) I have no idea how long this will take, but when I am finished, I will be back and I look forward to posting and interacting some more. If you'd like to be notified by email when I am back, please feel free to leave a comment with your email address. Also, if you're new here, please feel free to browse through some old posts. There are some doozies in here that promise to get you laughing (if I do say so myself!)
Furthermore, I cannot even put into words how grateful I am for your support. I have made many friends and have enjoyed every interaction I've had through blogging. I wish you much love and hope to talk to you again soon.
