It has caused me some unease to consider it because I wonder if I’ll lose the few readers I do have. But…that’s one of the reasons I will do it… because I don’t want writing and sharing my heart to be about needing approval and validation. I don’t need an audience to do what I need to do. And what I need to do is write; no fear.
Other reasons for the pause are to find my voice; my real voice. The one that is not afraid. It’s there.
I want to pause so that I may come back refreshed. Renewed. I have plans to re-sculpt my blog… I’ve been all over the place up until now, but I desire focus and some relative form of structure to contain the words that want to pour out; that will pour out. I’m not sure yet what it will look like, but some down time and prayer will provide clarity; I’m certain.
In addition to the pause of writing, at least publicly, I’ll also be taking some much-needed time to take care of myself; my health. I’m going to stop making excuses. My daughter needs a healthy mama. This will require some strength of will and focus.
And…I’ll also be working on fund-raising for my next mission trips. I will be posting a few posts over here, if you’d like to see where I’m going next and keep up with me there. :)
I’m not sure how long I’ll be away…maybe a month or two. I will be reading your blogs and commenting. Y’all keep me inspired and are truly the reason for my being spurred on to the next level. Whatever that level may be. :)
Please stay tuned and if you are a praying folk, I’d be blessed to be held in yours.
I will return. :)
