It has been weeks since I shared on the blog. Writing has taken a backseat to a stressful workload, parenting, the CrossFit Open, hiking, spending time with friends and entering the dating world again.
I've missed writing. Over the past three years, blogging has been my connection to the outside world, my creative outlet and a cathartic release. Purging my feelings and thoughts into the universe; an integral part of my healing process.
After I left behind being a published columnist, I contemplated my future in writing. No longer did I enjoy the fruits of writing, but anguished over frivolities like SEO, driving traffic, monetizing and branding of my blog.
Writing no longer was fun, but became a weight pulling me down.
Honestly, there are moments when I have considered closing the door on the blogging chapter in my life. Would anyone even miss it? Would I even miss it?
Instead of closing down shop, I decided to just take a break from writing. If I felt like writing, then I would write. If I didn't I just wouldn't.
Simple solutions to simple problems.
Instead of words being forced through my fingers, I would just go with the flow and welcome slow.
Take it slow has become my new mantra.
My whole life I have rushed, from love to careers. Why am I in such a hurry?
I have my entire life to publish my life story.
I am going back to my roots.Writing to connect with readers, not just write content that will be written for the masses, in hopes of viewer traffic.
I would love for Sweet Cicily to be a place where we can connect with each other, share our life stories and encourage others to aspire to their best selves.
All I want to do is share my journey, in hopes that I might inspire a few other souls in the world to create their own Happily Ever After.
At the end of the day, I believe God planted in my heart to share my life story, so that others understand they are not alone, healing takes time if you allow it and HE has a greater plan for all of us.
I am looking forward to where this next year of writing will take me.
Thank you for sharing this wonderful adventure in life with me.
What would you like me to write about in the next month?
