I’m on this journey…life. Yeah, let’s call it that. I am on the journey of life. I’m at this place on this journey where I reckon I’m finally learning a lot of things. Finally, not because I’ve been hard headed and refusing to learn or anything like that but because some things come with time and it has been quite some time since I started this adult-ing thing. ‘Real life.’ A lot of my favourite words (quotes) are starting to make sense, starting to take on new meaning. I am learning to say what I mean and mean what I say. I am learning patience. Patience. Patience. Patience. Did I mention patience?
I am trying to learn what this blog becomes. Hence the silence. Did you notice?
Okay, this is a blatant lie. That me trying to learn what the blog becomes was the reason for my silence. It was not. It contributed to my staying away longer but it was not the reason for the silence. The reason for the silence is likely much more mundane. That’s right…it has been so long I really do not even remember.
One week went by.
Then, I decided to baptize it a break. A lot of things were going on and I had a two week break coming up, so I decided that after the two week break I would start it all again. The languages along with the writing.
Interesting that I kept at some things. The running. The reading. Those did not suffer.
Perhaps all the more reason I believed myself when I decided to turn this into a break.
Well, I’m back. At least I’m trying to be. I am struggling tremendously with what my blog is about. Did you take note of the word tremendously?
I feel, when I post anything on the blog, what is akin to feeling uneasy in one’s skin. Have I really been away that long? Are these growing pains? Is it time to pivot? Pivot to what?
Add to the mix the fact that everyone seems to be weighing in on the direction (or is it misdirection) of Le Blog.
So the point of this post is just to tell you that there shall be a few gradual changes over the next couple of weeks. Also, a break can change your whole outlook on life. Stop every once in a while and acknowledge how far you have come.
