Time To SimplifyI’ve been going through a thing recently. I’ve written about it on the blog here and there, in various iterations, but it’s really all coming, I’ve realized, from an overwhelming desire to simplify.

I’ve mentioned that I’m an anxious person. And I’ve mentioned that I don’t have a ton of energy. And I’ve mentioned that I don’t love being busy, and that I would love to try to pare down my life.

I’ve been struggling, too, with this growing desire to simplify my writing, to hunker down and figure out what I really and truly want to write.

I’ve loved the last several months of blogging. It’s kept me writing during an extremely busy and tiring season of my life, which is one of the reasons I started it. I also felt like I had a lot to say, and I was able to put many of my thoughts on paper, so to speak, which has been life-giving.

But I’m feeling the need to press pause on the blog for now. I may be back, but I’m not convinced that blogging is the writing platform for me, and I need some time to figure out what my platform might be.

I’m excited to see what’s next, albeit a little nervous to release myself from this self-imposed weekly writing assignment. And who knows, maybe I’ll be back to the blog sooner than I think. 

Oh, and next time you see me, ask me what I’ve been writing recently. I know I’ll be needing all the kicks-in-the-pants I can get, and having to respond to your relentless inquiries should help.
