After much thinking, prayer and talking with my husband and loved ones, I have officially decided to take a break from the blogging world. Whether it will be temporary or indefinitely, I’m not quite sure.
I’ve wrestled for a couple of weeks now with an uneasiness in my heart about continuing to blog. I know that blogging is a big committment and I was prepared for that and loved it but now feel as if it taking my mind away from other things I need to be focusing on.
I want to take this time to focus on more of what I desire and what God desires for my life. I desire to love my God more deeply, serve Him, serve His people and discover His direction for my future. I desire to have a deeper, more satisfying marriage with the taking time I put into blogging and turning it into dedicated time to my husband and our relationship. I desire to keep running, biking and strength training, but doing it more for pure enjoyment, rather than pressure to be able to blog about it. I desire to eat healthy, clean and as organically as possible, not because it’s expected of me as a health and fitness blogger, but because I want what’s best for my body. I desire to run away from the guilt that sometimes ensues when I do indulge in chocolate, pizza, burgers, hot dogs and ice cream, because it’s sometimes too much pressure to keep up perfect appearances 100% of the time. As you can see, there is much that I desire and I’m not saying I can’t do all these things with having this blog but I have felt a stirring in my heart to take a step back and re-evaluate.
I do, however, want to excessively thank each and every one of you (personal friends and blog friends) for being so supportive these last few months with my journey with eating to be kind to my body, training and completing my first marathon and just living to be my best and healthiest self no matter the situation.
I don’t know what the next steps in my life look like but am excited to find out. I will still remain a faithful Twitterer and Facebooker so follow me, and I can follow you and keep up with you all!
I do believe I will miss you all and have moments of missing blogging about events but this is best for me right now and I hope you all support me and pray for me through this break. Love you all. Peace be with you.
