I guess I’ve been struck dumb and voiceless for the past few months. I’ve not felt as though I’ve had anything to share that wasn’t negative, depressing or boring. I seemed to have been regurgitating the same old shit that I’ve written about in previous years. The news was starting to repeat itself and it got old very quickly.
A hiatus is a good thing, it helps clear the mind and a person has time to focus on what’s really important. In my case, the past few months have been so busy with work, life and everything else I’ve tried to squeeze into the limited amount of time I have just for myself that writiing and blogging just seemed a pointless waste of time.
The truth is, and I know I’ve said this before, is that I don’t have too much time for me. I get a few hours a week of me time. The rest is spent chasing around 3 parts of the county for work. Weekends with “the beloved” are not relaxing as we’ve too much to do and now even more so. The few days a week I spend with “the loved ones” are packed full of chores and helping out and I honestly only get one night a week of time to myself. In that time I’ve not really felt like talking or blogging. I’ve not watched any TV, I’ve not read any books, I’ve not done much of anything…except try and rediscover me. I felt and still do, that I’m being swept along with the tide and there’s nothing I can do about it.
I haven’t done it yet, but I guess I’ve started to find my voice again, otherwise I wouldn’t be writing this. So, to all those people out there that haven’t abandonned me out of lack of interest. Hello again.
