I’m on a mission to reduce my stress and reduce my list of “shoulds” in life.  I haven’t been very focused and as I talked about in my last post, I’m trying to recommit to being committed.  This is no small thing for me.  So, in attempt to purge my brain of its infernal to do list that keeps haunting me, I’m taking a hiatus from blogging.  (Not that I’m a hugely prolific blogger to begin with.  :P)

I enjoy blogging and I think I’m finally comfortable with saying that I’m a blogger, but saying that I’m a blogger makes me feel responsible for putting up posts on a somewhat regular basis.  It’s always on my mind and ideas keep popping up.  The thing is that the urge to blog and get those ideas out there doesn’t end up being fulfilled, so this idea of “I have to, I should blog” is always on the back burner of my mind.

Taking this break will hopefully break me of this brain rut of feeling like I should blog and also let me focus on the things that are important right now instead of having pseudo-ADD and not doing anything productive while constantly worrying.

I am also going to take a break from reading blogs.  So, I’m sorry, but I won’t be around to comment on the wonderful posts that all of you out their put up on your blogs.  I’ll be back though, so don’t forget about me.

All right, here goes nothing.  Pulling the plug.  I’ll see you in June, at the earliest the end of May.

Have a wonderful spring.


Addled Brain

At the beginning of this year, I made it my motto of the year to be committed.  Well, somewhere in the last few weeks I’ve gotten all tangled up in trying to multi-task again.  I went from focusing to trying to do three things at once.  My brain is not happy and my stress levels are up.  So, this is my little recommitment to doing one thing at a time.
