Hello my friends! I know I’ve been MIA and missed the last few scheduled posts, so I just wanted to hop on and give you an update on me and the blog and my plans for the rest of the year.
At the beginning of this year I had high hopes and lofty ambitions for what I wanted the blog to be. Two posts per week, every week, all year. And I did so well for so long. Of course, at the beginning of the year, I had NO IDEA how quickly my life would be flipped upside down when just a couple short months later my dad was diagnosed with oral cancer.
At the time I chose to continue with my blog schedule as planned, and for a long while it was chugging along and all was going okay. I made it through the end of August! I was keeping up and the distraction was welcome.
Now, my friends, the physical and emotional toll of it all has finally caught up with me and I’m just exhausted. I’m talking 100% full blown slayed. I know it’s NOTHING compared to what my dad is going through, and my mom as his primary caregiver, and I would never claim it to be. But the long and short of it is that I’ve run out of steam and am deciding to cut back on the blog for the remainder of the year. I don’t need the added self imposed stressed of the schedule I created. I need to give myself grace, as I’ve been saying all along, and right now I just feel like I need to focus on resting and rejuvenating my own mind and body so that I can continue giving my all to my work and life responsibilities.
I will still pop in from time to time if I have something to share. I will finish out my Make A Statement series posts over the next couple of weeks. And I’ll be here for my monthly Hobby posts and quarterly Goal posts.
And next year I plan to pick back up and start again!
