Ripping Off Bandaids

The longer we wait, it is often harder to psyche ourselves up to do.

It’s been almost a month since I wrote a real blog post, other than sharing a photo or video with holiday greetings.

That’s longest I have gone in over three years.

My break from writing wasn’t intentional, at least not initially. But the more time that passed, the harder it was for me to get back on the wagon.

In recent years writing has been one of my favorite pastimes. It has brought me so much joy and it has been very therapeutic. I have often used my blog to process what was going on in my life, which for a long time centered around my family’s journey through secondary infertility and loss.

But lately some new challenges have come about for me and my loved ones. Some of which is not my news to share here and the rest I do not feel ready to write about. Which makes it more difficult for me to blog, knowing how much I am holding back.

I realize that I don’t have to share anything here that I am not comfortable doing. I get that there is still plenty I can write about in this space, which I have filled with my thoughts, hopes and fears for almost seven years now.

Once again I am a navigating a new normal and for now doing so a bit less publicly than I have in the past.

I think know that’s okay.

I appreciate how cryptic some of this is, like those passive/aggressive status updates people share on Facebook inviting people’s curiosity and concern, while being vague.

However, I wanted to check in, to let you know that I am doing well, overall, and intend to continue to write and share here.

Thank you to those who have reached out via email and other social media channels to remind me that you care and I am missed. Your kind words and support mean a lot to me, as always.

I hope your new year is off to a great start and wish you a wonderful 2014!
