It’s almost been a year since I started my blog. I was so excited about my new project that I was sleeping only 4 hrs or so per night even though I am a solid 8hr-per night person. And I didn’t even miss the sleep I was having so much fun learning about blogging and exploring my creative side that I didn’t know I had.
I was trying to be really happy-go-lucky, fun, positive person on my blog, which is a bit of a stretch for me. I could be that, but I am not that all the time. That would not be me. So when our 15-year old cat Boxer died last June, I couldn’t blog. It broke our heart so much because he was like our child. When you get used to having someone around the house everyday morning and night, and when it’s gone, it left a gaping hole that I couldn’t possibly imagine could be so big. Boxer was 12 pound cat but his absence made the house feel so empty….almost lifeless. I kept thinking of those parents who lose their child and I couldn’t even imagine what that would be like to go through if losing a cat we adapted only 15 years before had such an impact in our lives.
Since I am someone who cannot stick to one thing for too long, this break in my blogging project ended up lasting for about 10 months now. I am still heartbroken and I still cry in my pillow at night. I decided that my blog doesn’t have to be always so happy and positive and someone I am not. I am just going to be myself, for the sake of longevity of my blog page.
So here I go. Change of direction.
