Hiatus

n. gap or interruption in space, time, or continuity; a break

Times are seriously changing fast. It’s a challenge to keep up when we are being hit from every direction. The struggles are real.

I will be honest with you. I’m not the same person I was five months ago. How many of you can say you haven’t changed in one way or another since all of this began? Oh, I’m not saying I’m worse off. No, I believe I’ve changed mostly for the better. I guess that’s what I preach about so often. We need to learn positive things from our life lessons. And we are definitely learning lessons now. I will admit I’m a bit edgier than I was prior to March and I can spout off quicker than usual. I’m being more mindful of that. I think most everyone is a tad bit touchier than before. At least the people in my world. Maybe we have a right to be. There’s a lot we don’t understand and everyday we encounter new obstacles in our daily living. But I am more mellow in many ways too. Hopefully, I’m not falling into an “I don’t care” attitude. I don’t think so but I’ll be mindful of that as well.

The reason for this blog to say that I will be taking a hiatus. Everyone is dealing with so much right now. It’s not an easy time for anyone. My number count of readers has dropped off pretty dramatically and I hardly receive feedback, if any. I receive most of my comments and likes on my controversial blogs, but I simply can’t write those all the time. For my own sanity, I have to pull back on the controversy. A friend recently reminded me that there is much negativity in the world already. I agree. I should write uplifting and inspirational blogs. That’s what my blog’s intentions were from the beginning.

A lot of time goes into most of what I write. I am not a paid writer. I just write from the heart because I have a personal need/ desire to do so. But it’s just not feeling right lately.

I’m going to stop writing for awhile. Who knows how long a hiatus is. I suppose it varies from person to person. I have no idea. Hopefully, it’ll feel right again very soon.

Until then, you will be in my prayers. That’s the least we can do for one another. Take the much needed time to find peace in the chaos.

Be grateful for this day. ♥️

  1. Andi….I will miss my daily cup of brew with you! Be well, my friend. Do what you need to do right now…never stop writing. You are an encouragement to so many. I look forward when you choose to bless us once again. You know how to find me if you just want to chat! I would love that!

    1. Thank you, Robin. ♥️ You are sweet!
      I wasn’t sure if my writing style had changed and my readers were leaving because of it. Like I said, I feel I have changed to some degree, so I wondered if my writing did as well.

    1. I can always use the prayers. Thank you, Michele. ♥️ I was fearful that my writing style had changed and readers were leaving because of that. I’ll be back. 🙂
