Coming Back

I have been gone a while. A long while. And even before I was done done. I was done.

Here’s the thing. I actually like blogging. It is a breath of fresh air after a long, non—air conditioned, claustrophobic flight.

And still I have been away.

It’s been long enough that I thought about just retiring this blog and starting fresh with another one. But then I realized that what is more real than this?

See, even though I might love to blog, even if it helps me process my daily life, even if it keeps me sane... Life gets overwhelming.

And boy, have I been overwhelmed.

Between the stuff that life throws at you and my ability, or lack thereof, to cope, I have been in a hazy fog for the last year and a half – or more.

But. Things are looking up. I am feeling better. I finally feel a sense of hope that I have craved for months.

So, I am back. With the same blog. Hopefully for good. And I am determined to be more honest, more candid and more real. Because when I can do that, it helps me breath more deeply, smile more sincerely and hug more frequently.

Welcome Back my Spiritual friend... I missed reading about you, family and life! I am glad the fog as faded and you are feeling better! Have a nice day!

I found your blog through Becky a while back. I am glad you are back. I just went through similar feelings as you described. I chalk it up to major changes that took place in our family happening all at the same time. I have enjoyed reading your past posts as well as those you have contributed to P.O.M
