I know you are all wondering what happened. I admit I went ghost for about 4 months. It wasn’t on purpose but more out of necessity. Life has a way of making you slow down, either you do it voluntarily or it will sit you down involuntarily. I know what it’s like to sit down involuntarily and since I felt my body going in that direction. I stopped myself before things got worse.
My health was going in a downward spiral and I was trying to keep up with blogging and social media, but it just wasn’t working for your girl. Everyday tasks are a chore for me. It takes a lot of energy and effort to accomplish everyday tasks. I started to notice that I was tripping over my feet and falling more than usual. I would get shortness of breath while getting dressed in the morning or even walking up the stairs; which is already a struggle. I was getting weaker and needed to pay attention to my body.
As you all know I love food, but I also love me more and taking a break was needed. While I was on this break I did lots of eating, some cooking and explored other cultures. It was a great way to work on blog material but not be forced to get a post out I managed to brainstorm lots of content for future posts and even took some pictures.
Things happen when you least expect them. My circle of support has been changing a lot over the last year or so. Instead of my circle getting smaller it has been getting larger. There are some people who have been placed in my life to help me grow and move forward with not only this brand but others I am working on as well. In order for me to fully focus on myself and what’s coming, I had to rest.
My resting started with a vacation to Aylen Lake in Canada with my boo. He knew I needed to rest and had been telling me to slow down for months. When he suggested that I come to with him to his family home I was more than ready to take the trip. I enjoyed my time away I got the chance to really relax and rest. While I was there I decided to finally start my own book blog, instead of always being a contributing writer or a guest reviewer. The Literary Courier has launched and I am very excited and thankful.
Ready to Work
Now that I have gotten some rest, and I’m on a better work/life schedule I can get back to blogging and producing content. Have an idea for Taste Test Tuesday, Kitchen Tip Thursday or Food Friday, let me know.
