It appears that in today's day and age our lives are pretty jam packed with things to do, to think about or if you're unfortunate enough, to stress about... but I'm sure you, much like me, find yourself constantly running from a to b, juggling far too many tasks at once and generally just living on high energy to keep up with your demanding life - this is why we can often forget to take some time out, to stop, to breathe, to get some perspective.
This year I decided I really wanted to focus on improving my overall health, both physically and mentally. I wanted to spend more time looking out for myself, in the gym and at home and I also wanted to spend time working on something of substance, rather than nothing at all and this is miraculously, where blogging comes in.
Blogging has become a huge part of my day-to-day life; whether it's taking photographs, jotting down post ideas, writing new content, updating my layout or even getting social. But at times, blogging much like anything else, can become overwhelming... and that's why I decided I needed to take some me time and why I decided to press pause.
Easter felt as good a time as any to do so - Matthew was set to return to University, I started working part time as a Coffee Shop Assistant and overall I was feeling a bit sluggish and a bit uninspired in my work. Let's face it, creativity can be illusive, especially as a blogger and the more we seem to go searching for it, the harder it is to really grasp.
But alas, creative funk aside - I'm really looking forward to getting back into my regular posting schedule of Monday's and Friday's. I'm looking forward to discussing a myriad of subjects and passions of mine and overall just being able to use written word for the greater good - hopefully this will explain the unexplained break I just had.
Have you taken a break recently? How do you unwind?
