I took a vacation from blogging. It wasn’t intentional, but it was necessary. I’ve spent my evenings interacting with family, decluttering, reading free books on my Kindle, binge watching shows on Hulu and Netflix and just enjoying the feeling of not having to write. After all, when the writing becomes work, it’s time to step away to refocus.When the writing becomes work, it's time to step away to refocus. #fiveminutefriday Click To Tweet
Vacation = the action of leaving something one previously occupied.
Although in many ways it was a restful time away, there is an ongoing, internal struggle in my soul and I’m fighting to get myself back to a place of normalcy, both in the blogging world and in my personal life. In the returning to this place, things will be changing. I’ve already changed the look here (do you like it?), and the tag line (what do you think?), and much of my writings, although still spiritually focused, will consist more of the day to day, lifestyle format. I’m making no promises as to content or regularity, only that I am ready to return. I’m starting out slow and we will see where it goes. The one thing that keeps me coming back is all of you. Thank you so much for your kind comments and notes during my absence. You’re presence here is a gift.
Speaking of vacations, my husband and I have been gifted a week’s timeshare in Ramona, CA coming up in August to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary. It has been many, many years since we have been able to afford a week’s vacation. We are overcome with gratitude for this gift. We have a lot of work to do in our marriage and I am hopeful that this time away will allow for a reconnect on all levels. One of the things I am most looking forward to on our vacation is meeting my wonderful blog friend, supporter, encourager and client, Diana Rockwell. Oh the fun we will have! I will be sending my husband away to golf while I enjoy a day with this treasured friend.
What about you? Have you taken a vacation recently? I’d love to hear about it.
Blessed to join the Five Minute Friday community this week.
