It’s been a crazy year.

I think we’ve all said that at one point or another. Probably many points, across multiple months, and always followed up with, “That’s the understatement of the century.”

The century that, so far, is only 20 years old.
Don’t we all go through a crisis somewhere in our 20s?

In the midst of the global pandemic and national clusterfuck that has been this year’s politics, we’ve continued to live our own lives. I am no different. And, even without the worldwide stressors, this has been an exceptionally rough year for me.

I’ll tell you about it, sometime.

So, for a couple reasons including but not limited to: moving to WordPress from Squarespace has been a gigantic pain in the butt, and also my mental health needs attention, I’m saying now that I will be taking a break from blogging for the month of November, and will return with mental health content in December.

Will I still be online way too often? Yes.
Can you still chat with me? Please do.
Am I still up for conversations about mental health? Absolutely.
Will I read your blogs? Of course.
Am I okay? I’m working on it.

I’m growing, and whether the growth is physical, mental, or emotional, it always comes with growing pains. That’s all this is.
An interlude, an intermission, some growing pains.

Blessed be.

  1. Growth hurts. We shy away from it in the physical space, and tell ourselves we can train our bodies when we are better prepared for the demands on our time or resources. But if we shy away from emotional growth… our very mental health… we’re still gonna hurt, and it won’t get any better for letting it go. I’m grateful to you for so much, especially your truthfulness. That example goes a long way for me.

    Now if I only knew for sure about the four chipmunks and a toad.

    1. Still gonna hurt indeed. I’m doing the mental/emotional equivalent of popping a Tylenol and taking a nap because this kinda hurts and there’s a lot to figure out, still.

      Honestly, I’m quite alright with that mystery. 🐿🐿🐿🐿🐸
