I'm back....well, sort of....
As you may have noticed, I took a bit of a break from writing over the last 3 weeks. The short explanation is that I had a bit of a break down because of how overwhelmed I was. It's hard to explain but I felt that I just needed a break from everything. I obviously couldn't take a break from my work here so my writing was the easiest commitment to give up temporarily.
So that's what I did.
I have been asked quite frequently since then when I will be writing again and my answer has been, "I don't know". I really didn't know because I just felt so overwhelmed. The thought of writing anything just caused me anxiety. So I avoided it. I avoided picking up my laptop for nearly three weeks straight.
Now I've picked up the laptop again with renewed passion and joy but with a modified plan. After reflecting about the months leading up to November I now know that I was not giving myself enough time to relaxing and I was putting way too much pressure on myself. Not only with my writing but also in my work. I would be given tasks or find tasks to do at the desk and put all this pressure on myself to have it finished within a certain time. However, I wasn't giving myself enough time to do the tasks.
A week ago I had a weird day where I was stressing myself out to the point where I was almost fainting whenever I stood up. I took two days to myself and figured all of this out. Now, that I knew what to work out, I have gotten to a place where I can feel comfortable to add this load back into my life.
Now that I'm back online I will be modifying the #MyDay series to only once a week. I'm going to take note of each day but I'm going to only write up a post once a week. From now on I'll be calling them #MyWeek instead. As for the weekly posts I was doing, I'm going to do those bi-weekly.
This week I'll be doing two posts to kick start this new schedule and we'll go from there.
I hope you all understand! I look forward to writing again for all of you!
