It's been a LONG time since I've blogged. Things have been insane. Between holiday issues, two visits from my dad, wisdom tooth extractions, multiple viruses and migraines.......well, the list goes on.....I just haven't felt much like blogging. I've felt more like wrapping my self up in a warm blankie and hiding from the world. I didn't mind you. I felt like it, but I didn't. I just focused on getting through it all however I could. "Survival mode" as Rachel calls it.
I've felt guilty for not blogging, but I know that in the long run, taking a break from it to focus on other things was what I needed to do. I just needed to slow down and focus on a few small things that helped me through. As Ashley Turner would say, I needed to slow down and move into the slow lane. In doing so, I really have come to understand more about myself, my family, my friends, and my life in general. I really feel like I'm doing quite well, better than I've done in a long time. Overall, I feel happier, stronger, and calmer, and I feel ready to finally return to my blog and all my blog buddies. I've missed you all!
