Over the past few months, I’ve taken a hiatus from the blogging world.
(Yes, flick back to that May 2014 post…)
I never took this break intentionally, life just got in the way. This year has been a lot about travel, and working hard to pay for it, and this has meant I haven’t been able to put the energy and time I wanted into all the posts which kept piling up on my to do list.
I’ve had so many moments over the past few months where post ideas flickered into my head, and I’ve thought about jumping back into this big community. Truth is, the task always seemed too huge. My friends urged me to keep going, but my head just wasn’t in a good place to properly publish posts I’m proud of and excited to share with you all.
As a Virgo, and having been going through a crazy time at work – most of my time, attention and focus has been lost on work. I have realised, sometimes not everything is perfect, you can’t carry out every task perfectly. It’s ridiculous to always expect that of yourself in everything you do. To keep putting things off because you feel it’s never good enough, is procrastination in disguise.
I am notoriously hard on my self, nothing is ever good enough and through work this year, I have learnt that most of the time in life people ie. your family, your friends or even your boss, don’t care if something is done perfectly, they just care that it’s done.
Yes, for me it’s took a lot to realise that. I’ve also come to realise I am incredibly proud to have a blog, and to have somewhere on the web where I can put everything down. I’ve missed it, and behind the scenes have been transferring my blog over to WordPress.org as a new start and look for nlmorgan.com.
There seems no right way to come back and take the plunge into posting. I don’t have an excuse and I don’t think anyone reading this would expect me to provide one. Life has simply eaten up all of my time lately but I’m really hoping to get back into a good routine where my blog is full of life and community again.
