A break

I am taking a break. I need to decide whether in fact I want to continue this blog, but even if I do carry on I need some time away from blogging right now, to put the focus on other things which need my attention, and to take the pressure off myself to post something even when I have nothing to say. I will still check out other blogs from time to time, so I am not vanishing entirely. I will post again around end Jan/early Feb. See you then.

Mary: Have a good blog break. I have you in Bloglines so if/when you come back and post I'll be here! It's good to break - trying to keep the blog fed can be an unnecessary pressure sometimes. (Of course the last time I said I'd break I ended up creating a flood of new posts!) The only time I really got away was when I was in Mexico last year for two weeks. It was fabulous to not be chained to neither blog nor email. Miraculous!

Anway, best wishes and hugs.

Dear Mary, many times a break is a good and healthy option. I will miss you, but I understand your need. Best wishes and warmly hugs.

Mary, I'm not entirely surprised by this. I can easily imagine being at a point to want or need a break. I will really miss your presence here, but I definitely understand. My heartfelt wishes to you for the very best with the things that are needing your energy now. I'll be very glad to see you if and when you pop back in, or when you stop by for a visit. Much warmth to you, friend!

Dear Mary, I read your blog and whish you all the best and all the support you need. You would be astonished to know how many people suffer from panic attacks and there is not the slightest reason to hide. Furthermore I would like to say: the blog is for you, not you for the blog! Be brave on the way. Biene

I agree with Biene, the blog is for you. I have felt the way you do now many times and as leslee said wound us still posting. And as mb says it the best we will miss you til you get back.

Hi Mary, I must say that's probably a good stance. Can be a little addictive here and it's not very healthy,ya..To date, I have been a little less enthuse about it myself..:) But I have a 'things to say'list for now which I feel I must accomplish until I take a a break.

Agree with leslee on the plan to "take a break but ended up creating a flood of posts!":)

Anyway, looking forward to reading your next post! Take care and have a wonderful break!

Mary, glad you feel able to take some time and space when you need it. Hope you realise how beautiful your blog is - both to read and to look at. Sometimes it takes a bit of space to see this.

I had this experience exactly the same length of time after starting my blog (Feb to May), so I'm thinking and hoping this is a rite of passage and you'll be back! But it was beautiful, and is complete, anyway.

Others have said it better than I could--this space is for you, and it's OK to set it aside to care for oneself in other ways. We're around, and thinking of you.

This is a space to grow in, to enjoy. If it has become a burden, best left aside.

Come visit my place anytime. Can I make you some tea?
