As great as this blog has been for helping me to vent in the moment, write through my pain and get perspective on situations that have been really hard to handle, I think I am going to take a break from it for awhile. I know this was supposed to be about the whole "brave" year for me. But, I am going to need longer than that. This has truly been the worst year of my life in a very very long time. It's definitely tested my bravery, my patience and even my SANITY. But, I know I will come out of it stronger and better than ever. I have a lot of stuff to work through in private. I will continue to write for myself, but as I have read over my blog archive, I realize that I am putting a lot of heavy stuff out in the universe and on the internet. As much as I hope it's helping people, I think I need to focus on my health and well being w/o letting the whole world see it. Maybe that makes me "unbrave" right now. But, it's a learning process.
I have two other blogs (cooking and poetry) that I will maintain. And...occasionally...I will still post on here too. But, I am going to lay off the super serious stuff. All I can say for those who I have worried or offended with this blog...I am sorry. For those who I have helped and who enjoy reading this...I am sorry. I WILL BE BACK!! I just need some healing time. I look forward to sharing happier times on here. I look forward to showing my progress when I feel like I've made enough to make a difference. I wish everyone light and love...and I mean EVERYONE. Peace.
