Week 34: Personal Confession ~ Time out

I woke up one morning and made the decision to take a break from blogging! This is not an easy decision but it's one that I have made with a lot of thought. So much is happening and I fear if I do not slow down I might drown in my own self-made stressful life.

I love blogging but as a confessed self-motivated person it becomes hard when you can't find motivation to even write a post later on finish it. As most of you know I run two blogs and both are booming at the same time and I am very grateful, so many opportunities have come my way that I did not think possible. I have over 12 drafts sitting in my folders waiting to be made into a "something" post but I can't seem to find the right words to fit into the post and make some sense of it all.

When I was growing up in zambia I had never heard of the word stress and I did not even know or comprehend what it meant but stepping onto my now adopted home I learnt the word pretty quickly. If you went to my country and asked people what it meant to be stressed they probably say you are just lazy and I feel like that right now. This so called "stress" is what we term being lazy where am from  and  do not get your knickers twisted I am not saying people who are "stressed" are not actually stressed but we all view things differently.

I have come to realise and appreciate that whatever life you lead, stress does find it's own way into it but it's how you handle it that determines the outcome. I have chosen to take a hike for a couple days and recharge my batteries. I would love to go to the beach or even fishing just to get my mojo back but I gat a 9-5 job that demands my attention and I have decided to give it that attention whilst I switch off on here.

I would very much love to give advice to my fellow bloggers and readers about how to deal with stress or when you're running short in the motivation department but I will not because I need to deal with it first before I can share how I deal with it. I do know what works for me and what doesn't, but now is not yet the time to share! when I have not yet had to use it for a while as you know things change.

Before I embark on my short break, I would like to thank my fellow bloggers and especially my readers and thanks for the support it's greatly appreciated. I am sure you know it's not easy for me to write this post and admit to my personal flaw at this particular time but I appreciate your patience and time.

Understandable to need a break! You will be so missed! :)

Blogging takes a ton of time, effort and hard work - it's bound to take its toll eventually. It does on me, every few months. Take a break and relax. I hope to see you back.

I've taken blog breaks before too! Sometimes you just need to step away and breathe - and there's nothing wrong with that!

 
At 23 July 2014 at 03:25 , Blogger Camille Millecam Whiting said...

Breaks are needed sometimes- I love when people openly admit it and take care of themselves first!

 
At 23 July 2014 at 05:02 , Blogger Rebekah Clarke said...

Totally understandable and you need to think of you first, will be waiting for your return though xx

Having a break from blogging is good. It's quality over quantity!

I totally understand needing a break! Enjoy it!

Sometimes a break is all you need!

totally get the need to have a break, last week I put nothing up just because I had a 1000 other things I needed to do and I didn't want to get myself stressed out :-)

 
At 23 July 2014 at 15:36 , Blogger Nicole said...

Take a break! You don't want to get burned out and quit blogging forever! That would be sad. :/

 
At 23 July 2014 at 23:19 , Blogger Jenn @ hellorigby! said...

Everyone deserves a break! PS that's the cutest stress reliever I've seen!

I've been pretty good about writing for the blog lately, but my baby, my book has been neglected!

 
At 24 July 2014 at 06:43 , Blogger Laura, The Start of a Good Life said...

I just finished the book "The Promise of a Pencil" by Adam Braun. and he talks in one chapter about being able to be vulnerable is where you are most able to learn and grow. bravo for knowing when to take a break and doing it! it's something we all can learn from.

 
At 24 July 2014 at 15:40 , Blogger Carly said...

Taking a break is sometimes the best thing you can do. You will definitely come back recharged!

 
At 24 July 2014 at 18:04 , Blogger Joanna Sormunen said...

It's good to take a break from time to time and live :) It gives a different view on things and maybe you'll decide to do something different or maybe you'll come back with more energy and ideas!

 
At 24 July 2014 at 19:53 , Blogger Ashley Griffith said...

Sometimes breaks are totally necessary! Enjoy it :)

 
At 24 July 2014 at 22:48 , Blogger Alice Johnson said...

Aw I will miss your posts! But blogging should be fun too and if you're getting stressed by it and not having fun then you're right to take some space from it and come back afresh :)
