I haven’t posted in a bit… a long bit…
There was real consideration given to the notion of walking away completely. I’m not sure why I didn’t… I’m not sure why I would…
To say that things in the Kingdom have been hectic recently would be an understatement.
The Queen and I (and the Little and Littler Princes to an extent) are being forced to change right along with all the upheaval around us. Some of it has been good. Some of it has been sad. Some of it has felt like a betrayal to loyal friends… (Look at me vaguebooking like a pro.)
And all of that is to say that I know there is no expectation on when I might post again – the days of having a weekly routine where all my faithful kingdomites knew what type of post they’d find waiting for them in their feeds have been a thing of the past for years now – YEARS – but that doesn’t quell the guilt I feel for leaving this space static, un-updated, left behind. Which is why I almost left.
I’ve been shedding the parts of my life that bring me stress to reduce my responsibilities down to the core things that are needed to keep my family happy and healthy (including myself). Stress had been making me sick. I’d stretched myself thin trying to be too many things for too many people. And yet, I found that my blog didn’t need to be on that chopping block.
There is guilt, yes, when I realize it has been months since I posted last. But, that’s okay. Over time, this wonderful Kingdom has returned to what it was when I first started blogging over five years ago… a place for me to play with words and see what comes of them. No expectations from all of you. No expectations from myself.
I have no idea how that will play out.
And that’s okay.
It is an adventure after all… why would I want to know how it ends?
