If we were having coffee I’d say “I’m back, beyotches!”

If we were having coffee I would tell you how awkward it feels to come back to blogging after posting every day for more than a year and then just stopping suddenly and without explanation.

I would tell you that I don’t really have a good explanation, other than I’ve been living life offline, doing things and meeting people, working and writing just enough to stay alive, going to places I’ve never been, meeting people I’ve never met, oh my god DATING, seriously, for real.

If we were having coffee I would have a whole lot to say about GOALS¬†that I have – ones that I’ve had for a while, ones that are just percolating on all of my back burners, ones that I’ve given up on and let go of, ones that I’m not quite yet ready to commit to.

I would tell you that everything has actually been quite a bit more than just fine, despite the radio silence.

Silence and space, quiet and cutting off from things is not always bad, not at all. Sometimes a little time away is just the ticket. A vacation from the connection. A reminder, however small, that we are only beholden to the obligations we choose to have in life… Right?

That’s what I’d like to believe.

I’m going to tell you a whole lot of other things. I have stories inside that are ready to be spilled. I have this need to just do what I want, and what I want is to move these fingers clickety clack over the keys a whole lot more often, just like I used to, because it’s good to remember you aren’t alone even if alone is what you seek, and that’s perfectly okay.

That’s what I would tell you if we were having coffee.

  1. I know the feeling. I didn’t blog everyday for a year but I did for just about three months. I’m just getting back in the groove. Like you I enjoy sharing but that disconnecting for a while is good. Welcome back.

    1. Thank you! I didn’t realize I needed a break until I realized how relieved I was to not feel like something I enjoyed had become an obligation.

  2. I can’t wait to hear what you’ve been up to and what your GOALS are! I always feel a bit of nervousness when I haven’t blogged for a while but it’s good to see you’re back and with lots of things percolating!

Feel like sharing some thoughts?
