It has been exactly 26 days since I have published a blog post. I have not felt inclined to write a post or even look at my blog since that day.
For a couple months I have been questioning my maintenance of this blog. Over two years, I have tried on different writing styles, angles for posts, subjects and focuses for the blog. Non of them felt… right.
I am at a turning point in my life (or so I feel) and am looking at everything I do and have, and deciding what stays and what goes. This not only extends to activities and obligations, but objects and thought patterns. I have been thinking about it a lot and have decided that, at least for now, I won’t be writing for this blog anymore.
Why? I’ve realized that daily writing isn’t my passion. I want to follow my passions… and what my passion is for is food. Healthy vegan allergen-friendly food, which I get to work with every time I go to my part-time job. I have a passion for my rats, and I don’t want any time to be wasted on what feels like a forced obligation that could be spent bonding and being with them. I want to chase my dream of having good relationships with people and travel; share my message with the world.
And I will still be sharing my message! I am thinking to put up a recipe/sustainable/healthy living website that won’t require as much daily writing attnetion. In fact, I already have the domain bought.
But first, I am going to give myself a break. Not have this new project be an obligation, but an outlet for my creativity, when the time comes to launch it fully. I’ll take the gap to actually get back in touch with my creativity. To have joy, without rushing, in creating recipes and photographing them! Give my myself time to collect my thoughts and projects on food.
