I’ve been thinking. And praying. And I’ve come to a decision.
I want to blog. I really do. Writing has been a huge chunk of my life since I was 9, and it really is a part of who I am. Writing is also how I process events, trials, thoughts, and emotions. You wouldn’t believe the number of diaries I’ve filled up over the years.
But I just can’t keep up blogging/writing with my health the way it is right now. I can hear your response: “But you just started! You’ve only blogged for a month.” I know. But what I didn’t expect was for my health to come crashing down in September. It wasn’t a typical flare up of a few days or even a week that eventually settles down to normal pain levels. I’ve been crashing hard. Really hard. Much harder than I am used to. And it hasn’t let up. My “semi-good” days are becoming fewer and farther apart, and I’m fighting an intensity level of emotions that I haven’t had to battle in a really long time.
After talking with another blogger about what she’s had to do in order to recover some of her physical and emotional health back, I decided I need to make some drastic changes. I put it off at first, but considering the last few days I’ve had, I need to do it now — before something even worse happens.
Along with other things, I will be taking some time off from blogging to focus on resting and letting my body and mind recover.
I will be gone for at least the month of October, perhaps longer. It will depend on how I’m doing come November. I hope to return at some point, so I’m going to leave everything up on here. But except for an occasional checking of notifications, I won’t be on WordPress for a while.
Thanks for the follows, likes, and comments. They’ve meant a lot to me. It would mean even more to me though if you would pray for me while I try to rest and heal.
Love in Christ,
To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven … a time to heal … a time to build up. Ecclesiastes 3:1 & 3
