Difficult to put something down, or to step away, from an experience that has been so fulfilling, so meaningful. I ran this idea past an older mentor couple of weeks ago, that I was thinking of discontinuing my blogging. He looked at me like I was crazy, and then asked “So, let met get this straight: you enjoy blogging, and it means a lot to you … and you are thinking about quitting? ‘Doesn’t make sense.”
My hope: a short sabbatical. There is too much happening in my life, including the health needs of one of my kiddos. I’ve been struggling / suffering, for a number of years, with my own secondary PTSD and transitional stress from several betrayals in business. To use the words of another from many years ago, “Stop the world … I want to get off.”
I will not shut down my blog, mainly for my own benefit. This has meant so much to me, and I don’t want to lose it. I will be, periodically reading the blogs of others, although I will have to shrink-down my “following list”. I will read my EMAIL, and check in to see if there are any replies to my blog posts. Bottom line: I am so thankful (beyond words) for all of you who have encouraged me with your empowering words. My hope is that each of you will be blessed, immensely.
Goodbye, for now.
