For the last couple of days I’ve been trying to write this post. I type a few words and then just as quickly I delete them…
You see, for almost seven years, blogging has been my everything. It was the thing that held me together when I was falling apart with Postnatal Depression. It’s the reason I set my alarm for 5:30 every morning. It’s made all my creative dreams come true.
But lately, it feels like blogging is taking more than I can give. Digital media is a very hungry beast and the pace of conceptualising and producing content is heady.
I thought I would catch my breath over the new year and be ready to jump back into it by now. But I’m not.
Instead, I feel a pull to step away from the computer. I need to create white space. I need to find a new flow between work and home.
So, I’m taking the rest of January off. It’s been a hard decision to make. I’ve always felt a bit scared to stop…of missing out on opportunities. But now the opportunity cost of not pausing is just too great.
Until then, take care and I’ll see you very soon
