It has been 8 months since I blogged here. Why the silence?
1) I needed to live into my new life. I did a lot of “processing” for the past two years and part of me just needed to live and not do any writing or reflecting for a while. I needed time to get on my feet and time to experience life for a while. I’ve done so and I think I’m now ready to start writing again.
2) Things just got too painful. I hit a wall in February and really wasn’t dealing with things very well. Quite frankly, everything felt very overwhelming. I didn’t have it in me to write because it would just bring up the pain more and I was already hurting more than I allowed most people to see. I worked really hard to keep everything together and to stay positive and I don’t think even I realized the toll everything took on me.
So I stopped writing. I just kept looking forward to lived.
And what happened during that time is that I have begun to get settled in my new life. There have been some very painful times during the past 8 months but there have also been some good times. Life has become much more normal and healing is beginning to take place in some ways. I am much happier and healthier than I was the last time I blogged back in February.
But it has been a long road to get here.
So I guess I should fill you in on what has happened, huh? Well, stay tuned and I will be writing a series of posts to catch up to today.
