I wrote a new post a couple days ago and then deleted it. I feel lost with this blog lately, like it's become mundane. I rarely write anything interesting anymore. Instead of my deepest thoughts, it seems to have become a place for me to keep track of my daily life -- not what I originally had in mind.
I have been considering a temporary shutdown of all my online accounts. I feel that I've become so caught up in everything else -- work, bills, cooking and cleaning, traveling to visit family and friends -- that I am actually starting to feel the physical effects of it all. I even went to the doctor last week to try to pinpoint this extreme exhaustion I'm experiencing, but I know it's more likely stress-related than health.
Anyway, until I figure out a way to juggle everything or to drop a few things off the "to do" list and make time again for the things I actually enjoy, I may be M.I.A. for a while. Social media takes so much time and effort, after all, that I don't feel I can give it the creativity it deserves right now. I don't want to become that person who posts a status update every hour saying, "I just had waffles for breakfast. And my middle name is Awesome." No, it seems better to take a breather.
I've had a recent offer to join forces with another blogger. Even if I drop everything else online, it seems like a good idea to keep up some light blogging (with a co-writer) at the very least. If I decide to accept the offer, I will keep you informed. In the meantime, I am leaving this blog open, but posts may be few and far between.
Thanks for your love and support!
