Maybe you’ve noticed, maybe you haven’t, but here it is: I haven’t been around at all in the past two weeks. And I don’t just mean that I haven’t posted anything in the last two weeks (twelve days to be specific) but I also haven’t been active in the blogging community. I haven’t kept up with any new posts, and I’m sorry about that.
I wish I had a good reason for disappearing for a while, but I don’t. I didn’t have any revisions or exams or even a busy work week. To be honest, I just wasn’t in the right head space. These last two weeks have been mentally draining and it’s hard for me to say why that is. Like I said, I didn’t have anything special going on. I was just…not feeling up to it. I was completely unmotivated to do anything, which unfortunately included blogging and writing—two of the things I love doing most.
BUT last night I decided to get my act together. I told myself it’s okay to feel sad or unmotivated for absolutely no reason sometimes as long as you at least try to get better. And I guess that’s what I’m doing right now. Today, I’ve started writing my new WIP and I’m here to announce that I’m getting back into regular blogging. It’s not much, but it’s a lot more than I’ve done in the last twelve days, so I guess that counts for something.
Isn’t that what matters anyway, trying to be better than your old self?
I hope this didn’t sound too dramatic, which is the last thing I want. I’m just sharing how I feel because this blog is still my safe spot even though I’ve neglected it for a while. But I’m back now, so all is good.
PS: How’s everyone been? Do you have any must-read blog posts I’ve missed? Don’t hesitate to leave a link in the comments and I’ll try my best to have a look.
