This is one of the hardest things I have had to do. But I need a break. These past few months I have dreaded Sunday mights when I have had to sit down and write a post for Monday. Blogging has become an assignment, a chore, and something that I am currently not enjoying. And I think it shows in my writing. As I started to write last night about the Fun. concert we attended on Friday night with the boys (it was more than just Fun.) I re-read my words and thought that they were crap. Whether they were or not is not important. What matters is that this is not a desired core emotion for me. And I need to start listening to myself a little better.
On the flip side, I love being a blogger. I love sharing my thoughts with a lovely group of dedicated readers. And I love when something I write resonates with just one person. Blogging keeps my writing muscle strong — and I am able to submit pieces to other outlets with a broader audience which is also a win. And I am terrified that if I stop – I may never start again. But if that happens – that is what is meant to be. However, I don’t think it will. As I type these words this morning, I am tearing up just thinking about any kind of end to MoB.
So my plan is to see you in September again on these pages — renewed, re-energized, and re-focused on the writing which I really love. Thank you so much for checking back with me then.
