Hopping back on the blogging horse again....



I have been thinking about this space. When I logged in this morning, I realised I hadn’t written since last September. In part this is because I never quite got over the feedback that my life was “sad and depressing and no one needs that kind of negativity” and in part because full time work plus full time study turns out to equal a health breakdown by the end of the year.

But I’ve rested, dusted myself down, picked myself up and realised that writing in the space was a huge part for me of processing the feelings I have about things that happen. In short it was good for my mental health and now that I don’t do it, I have a lot of unresolved thoughts in my head jumbled about. I always wrote for myself first and foremost and so I’m taking up the pen (keyboard) again to sift through life and make sense of it.

Follow along if you want, but if you don’t that’s fine too. Life is messy and complicated and sometimes it’s sad. That’s just how it is. What’s that saying, it ain’t all sunshine and roses, but some of it is.

Here’s to finding the roses.

  1. Welcome back ... you have been much missed ... there are others of us out here too ... trying to make sense, of what is the meaning of life, love, & family, worrying about elderly parents, young adult children ... but things always seem to work out one way or another.

    My husband recently questioned my sanity or warped mind ... LOL ... as I laughingly told him ... our GP told me on my last check up ... NZ is all out of 'un-crazy' pills so she would be unable to add those to my usual script.

    So welcome back ... hope all goes well, for you this year ... and keep blogging :)

  2. Keep blogging, so many are dropping off. I was finding that I have lots of posts I want to do but just don't get the time or inclination to actually sit behind a computer for another part of my day. I love reading your posts, always have. Delete bad feedback - if they have the time to do that then they don't have a life!!!

  6. My blog is also used for writing random things like my health, plus crafting. If people don't like that then they can read something somewhere else; I need to get it down, just like you. Good to see you again and hope things improve from now on.

  7. I never felt your blog posts were negative or sad. I always thought they were real, inspiring and notes on leading a real life trying to do the very best you can for yourself and your kids. Something we all have in common.
