I’ve been on a bit of a blogging hiatus. Some of you have inquired about my lack of posting and I truly appreciate you checking in with me. I was honestly quite shocked this morning when even my husband mentioned in a questioning tone to me while eating our breakfast, “You really haven’t been blogging much lately?” It’s hard to answer why because even I don’t really understand exactly why I stopped posting. I love writing in this blog. When I really stop and think about it though I just haven’t felt like blogging.
You may have been expecting some juicy reason as to why I haven’t been posting much or maybe even think I was going to pile on the excuses. I recently heard a great theory from a friend. She said that when she hears others give excuses, the more excues they give the more she knows they are lying. Isn’t that the truth?! I don’t want to lie to any of you.
In all reality I simply just haven’t been posting. As much as I love this blog and writing, as of lately, this blog hasn’t been my number one priority. If I am also honest with you, I’ve been battling depression a bit (although not diagnosed by any professional). When depressed, I tend to feel unmotivated and the things that I enjoy, tend to not feel so enjoyable in those moments. Which I’m sure those of you who battle depression are familar with feeling as well.
I’ve noticed that since I hurt my calf muscle playing soccer that it has limited my ability to do the things I want to do to stay active. I am dealthly afraid of hurting it again and fear even a worse case scenario if I jump back in. When I’m not active, something I notice about myself is that not only does the way I feel about my overall self start to plummit, but my mental health does as well. When I’m not feeling good outwardly, it directly affects how I feel inwardly. Staying active has always been a great outlet for stress for me and truly helps these waves of depression that hit me like a ton of bricks.
At any rate, I’ve got nothing juicy for you to know and no legit excuses for my blogging hiatus. I’ve just got one honest answer. I just haven’t felt up to blogging lately. I know I will turn a page and will blogging up a storm again in no time…but in the mean time, please ride this storm out with me, be patient with me, and if it’s not too much to ask would you keep me in your thougths and prayers?
I truly appreciate those of you have noticed my silence on here and have checked in. I also appreciate my loyal and few followers…I love you guys!
