When it comes to making big decisions, I usually take time to think things through. Regarding my decision to stop blogging, however, this was something I just thought of as I was writing this post.
The idea of stopping something midstream does feel a bit strange. I wish I had a ‘perfect’ reason or explanation to justify my decision, but I do not have one.
My schedule hadn’t gotten any busier. I’m working twenty hours less a week than what I’m accustomed to. So time is not a factor here. And there have not been any minor or significant events in my life that could have triggered this decision.
I just don’t feel like writing anymore. Of course, I might wake up feeling differently and resume sharing words of inspiration as if nothing of significance transpired.
Earlier this month, I wrote about unplugging from social media for this entire year. Part of my rationale for doing so centered on my desire to experience more reflective and contemplative moments.
It could be that I am pulling away for the same reason and want to enjoy more resonant contemplative moments in the sanctuary of my soul.
I’m not sure if this decision is part of a bigger unknown picture. Regardless, I will trust my intuition and go with the flow of life.
If I were to describe my feelings as of this moment, I would say I am feeling a bit melancholy mainly because I will miss the connection I have built with so many of you—extraordinary women and men I’ve come to admire.
To those who have graced my blog with your kind words, I say thank you. I see you.
Well, that’s it. Take good care. I now sign off by sending you my best wishes.
Continue to live life to the fullest.
