Break Time


Exactly 450 blog posts ago I started with the belief that I had so much to share with the world.  Hubris, indeed.  The blog has turned into more of an events journal, rarely going deeper than day to day happenings, some thoughts, and tweets that made me laugh.

The subjects that are most dear, I have not blogged about: my health journey and the politics happening in the US presently.  Am I a coward?  I don’t know.  I do admire those with a unique voice that share what is really going on with their lives in a way that reaches out and helps others.  Can I do that?  Do I have the courage?

I only know that I am giving myself time to re-group.  For the last several years I’ve posted 3-4 times a week.  Faithfully.  Have I run out of words.  If you know me, you know that is impossible.  But what am I willing to share?  Will this continue as a journal of sorts…..happy events?  Or will I have the desire and guts to share those deep places in my heart.  Time will tell.

“It’s okay to take a break.”  I will repeat these words again and again to myself until I believe them.

    You are not a coward. Or, if you insist, I am a coward, too. We’re in good company, I’m sure.

    Also, as everyone else is taking the new year to do MORE on their blog, I’m actually contemplating doing less. OMG! Yeah, whatever. I’ve chosen my One Word for 2018 and, dammit, I’m going to focus on that.

    I’ll just add that not only is it okay to take a break, it’s necessary. We all should be doing that. 🙂 Have a lovely break and I’ll see you when I see you.
