Hello, Lovely Friend. I've been away from my blog for about a week due to a lot of personal issues. I've been overwhelmed, stressed, and feeling very ill most of the time. But I must admit that I have really missed blogging since I began my blog hiatus. As most of you already know, I view blogging as a magical escape from the stress, anger, negativity, and mania of the outside world. I continually strive to cultivate positivity in my writing and create a warm & cozy blog home.
Naturally, life isn't always about sunshine, rainbows, and dandelions. All of our lives have a tendency to get a little crazy while we're busy living, breathing, and just attempting to be okay. For me, life is messy. I struggle with an overwhelming urge to plan and organize my entire life, but I always feel like my life goes in the opposite direction from all of my expectations. The only way I can cope with the hustle and bustle is to remain positive about life in general.
I often receive emails about my constant positivity. I have even been asked if I ever have bad days or get into bad moods. The answer to those questions is a loud, resounding YES! And this past week has been the ultimate proof. I have been in an extreme funk, and I'm just now struggling to climb out of it. My life is far from perfect, but I genuinely chose to view my circumstances in a positive light. I jump for joy when I get my favorite soup for lunch. I make up little songs about my library books. I tell my friends constantly how freakin' amazing they are. I write weekly gratitude lists. I just live in the moment and love life through all of its unexpected & imperfect moments.
I'm so glad to be back from a week-long blog hiatus! I missed you, Lovely Friend!!
Lots of love & positivity!
