It's been a long time since I put my thoughts into blog format with any consistency. For a while I completely lost all desire to read blogs OR write myself, so I didn't try to force it. I felt sort of empty, like I had nothing to say, or that I didn't care to say it. I had gotten over sharing stuff on the blog. I just didn't feel like it was all that necessary. The same went for reading blogs. I felt like I was getting too sucked in to other peoples' lives and there was just too much happening in my own brain to fit anyone else's words into it.
Looking back on the past several months of not really blogging, I don't think that neglecting the blog has made me happier, in fact, I feel like I'm in a darker place without it. Lately my thoughts have been trapped in my head, bouncing between my ears and eating away at my sanity. This blog got me through some of my toughest times because it was my release valve and I feel like I need that now more than ever.
So here's to a new year of blogging. It's going to be a crazy year, so I'm excited to get back on the horse. Talk soon.
