I disappeared from the blogging world for an entire year

I think the simple fact that you clicked on this post possibly because you were just curious to know if the girl who once published this blog is still alive, means you deserve an honest explanation. The sudden silence on here was completely unexpected and unplanned- as most of life tends to be. I couldn’t find the time or desire to explain my absence sooner. Without going into too much detail (because over the course of my silence, I realized how much of a private person I actually am), at the start of the year, a loved one got incredibly ill and my world fell apart. Thankfully, I can report that the situation had a positive ending and now, here’s December, and I’m just continuing my attempt to glue myself together again. 

What does this mean? 
It means that I’ve had a whole lot of time to think. To be sad. To be angry. Worried. Anxious. Stressed. Happy. Calm. Relieved. All the human emotions, really. In no specific order. I’ve lived about 5 years in one. 

And now that I’ve finally collected myself and my thoughts long enough to write here, if I’m being completely honest, I’m not sure what this blog can or will become. I’m not sure what direction it will take. I can’t say my motivation has completely returned in every aspect, but there’s definitely a new sense of strength and determination in me that I need to explore. 

For now, all I can say is thank you for sticking with me. I’m glad we’re friends.
