If You Get Tired, Learn to Rest Not Quit
It has been quite a while since I've posted something on here. And that's not to say I haven't been writing or thinking about things to share, but between exhaustion, lack of inspiration and not being completely sure of what to put out there, I've been stuck in a bit of a rut. It's one thing to say you're an open book and mean it in front of friends, or friends of friends, or small groups of strangers. It's a completely different thing to say you're an open book on Al Gore's internet and mean it when you have no idea who is reading that open book. And it's another thing altogether to keep passion for something when you're unsure what to share.
Nevertheless, I know I have to get back to this - my first baby - especially considering I didn't even post for my blog's anniversary this year (Ayetozee turned 2 this April). Thanks to people telling me that I can't let others out create me and the inspirational quotes I save to my phone to use as lock screens or for my eventual (which we all know will never happen) Instagram revamp or for general mood boosting, I'm finally ready to get back on the horse.
I have brainstormed, I have written notes on the goals I want to achieve and how much of that I'm willing to share here. I have looked all around the internet and all around me for inspiration. I have thought of ways I can share things I have been through or things I just want to be on my blog without them necessarily using my own words or coming from my point of view.
Despite the fact that I haven't been posting, I have been checking my analytics and to my delight, people have still be reading or at least taking a look around. Because you're still looking, I owe it to you to give you fresh content, or just something new to look at to be honest. Seeing people from literally all over the world read my blog makes me happy and I'd like to believe that I'm giving something to the universe when I post.
No matter how full my plate gets, no matter how bogged down I get with the happenings of life, no matter how much I feel as if inspiration isn't there or that I don't want to have verbal (or finger) diarrhea, I'm learning that when I get tired, I should rest not quit.
