It’s Okay To Take A Break

Over the last few months, I have slowed down blogging, writing, and promoting my blog. To be honest, I needed a break. It was good to step back and relax. Mentally, I felt a little tired and I honestly did not know what to write about and did not have the energy to promote and be on social media. I felt like I needed a social media break. Yes, I am still on Instagram, but that is the main social media platform I was actually somewhat active on. The main thing I posted every now and then was some quotes or thoughts that came to mind. It’s good to take a break, as anyone who has ever learned how to break the cycle for performance anxiety, or recovered from burnout will agree. I realized during my time away that it was okay to take some time for myself and get offline. I was spending a lot of time on my phone and the internet. I was reading a lot of negative things that started making me feel negative. I basically needed to take my own advice and stay positive. I know now that if I ever need to I can take a step back and relax. I don’t want to just blog to have a blog. I started this blog because I enjoy blogging, and it feels like sometimes I’m writing journal entries that I might read later in my life. I enjoy blogging, and I didn’t want to make blogging a chore for me. So, I decided to take a break. I am so thankful to all the wonderful readers, followers, and fellow bloggers who continued to view my blog, comment, share, and retweet. I am so thankful for all the love and support. You guys are awesome! I am also excited to say that I have started a Twitch channel. Anyone that knows me personally knows I love to play video games, and I am excited to live stream sometimes when I am playing. I am back to blogging and I know if I need to I will take a break again. But for now, I am ready to write again.
