It’s okay to go MIA

Dear readers,

I don’t want anyone to think I’ve forgotten about the blog. Life began to get overwhelming and I really needed extra time to compose myself.

When life does get overwhelming, I tend to fall into depressive slumps that aren’t good for me. Let’s just say handling my emotions is not my strong point.

As the title says, it’s okay to go MIA. You need that time to recharge your batteries and regain focus. I have this belief that taking care of mental health is just as Important as taking care of your physical health.

I’m the next post, hopefully this week, I want to focus more on mental health.

I know this is a short post. I really want to focus back on the blog and recommit myself to a constant post schedule.

I thank the world for my readers

Life update and “H.O.P.E”

“You may say I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one. I hope someday you’ll join us. And the world will live a one.”

John Lennon

Peace and Blessings to everyone and Happy Holidays!

I hate having to say this over and over but I’m sorry for the inconsistency.

I do have some updates to share.

I have finally found employment once again, even if it is a seasonal position. I do enjoy where I work and I do hope they consider me for a permanent, full-time position in the near future.

I’m also dealing with my dad’s health issues. He has a disease that affects his memory. When I get more information about the disease, I will be glad to share it.

With everything I have mentioned above, I have been super busy. I have thought about different ways to improve my blog and get better. Often times I do write potential blogs topics in my journal, then I forget to post them while it’s fresh on my brain.

For instance, on Decemeber 7, I wrote about hope and what it means to me. I wrote as much as my thoughts would allow, without over doing it. I would like to share that with you today:

December 7, 2017 “H.O.P.E”

Dictionary.com describes hope as “the feeling that what is wanted can be had or that events will turn out for the best”. At first glance, I didn’t understand the definition. The word itself can mean different things to different people.

I was trying to find different acronyms to describe hope and only one stuck with me

That acroynm is the last thing I wrote. I wanted to have multiple acroymns to share but that one just stuck with me.

I choose my happiness regardless of what people may think. I choose to live the best life I can live. I want my son to experience his best life. I want my family and friends to be blessed and have their best dreams come true.

With all that being said,  I want all of my readers to give their best efforts and achieve their greatest goals. It’s ok to be afraid of the future but taking the first step can be the start of something awesome!
