Love begins by taking care of the closest ones – the ones at home.
I’m going to be taking a break from this blog for a while.
Some of you know that I struggle with bipolar II and the last couple of months have been very difficult with mood issues set off by the smallest thing. Lots of inconsistent sleep and just daily life stress caused me to get pretty depressed.
I was struggling with things like my purpose in life, what are my skills, what have I accomplished with my life? And I still struggle with those things, but when I’m depressed, it consumes me.
So, I’ve made conscious effort to recover from this low spot lately and I can feel myself improving.
But one thing I think would take some self-imposed pressure off is to officially take a break from this blog. I always want to stamp, but I haven’t stamped in probably 3 weeks. So obviously I don’t have anything to share. And, I want to be able to recover and get my moods stable again without extra pressure.
So I will not be posting on this blog regularly. I’m not sure how long I’ll be, but I need to take time for myself and spend the rest of the summer with my kids (my oldest starts kindergarten in 3 wks).
If you’re interested in how things are going, you can always check in on my personal/family blog over at: www.fishbowlmama.com
Thanks to everyone who has been reading and following – I appreciate every one of you.
And don’t forget to take time for yourself.
