From the Dark Comes a Brighter Light

Sometimes I just go into sensory overload. Too much input. And when I get to that point, I just shut down and regroup. Every now and then my blog will go dark. Usually it only takes a couple days for me to regroup and recharge.

And that is just a fact of life. Sometimes there’s just too much going on and the energy required to process all the data, keep one’s priorities straight and make the proper decisions for all involved requires my having to shut down certain aspects of my life.

I don’t allow blogging to take energy from me. If I’m not in the right frame of mind, it is an effort to write. It’s not writer’s block, I can come up with stuff, but none of it makes me laugh and it is a more painful process. It’s not enjoyable. And for me, blogging is for me to laugh at the absurdity in my life at the end of the day. When I can no longer laugh, that will be when I quit blogging.

Hasn’t happened yet! Just intermittent darkness. Don’t sweat it. Everyone needs time to get their proverbial shit together. This week was mine.

Hey! I was the curse word SHIT over at Not Exactly Rocket Science. ;-) Glad to see you smiling again. Did you crawl back out of your cave long enough to post and go back in? Or are you out for a while? GRIN! I know, I know... It's that introvert in you.

Glad you are back because I missed you. You are right and once in a while everyone has to regroup and get it back together. I wrote about some things last week that I really didn't want to write about but I felt like that they should be said. But I made my self a promise that yesterday was no politics and I just enjoyed writing. Take care. Bucs are getting there butts kicked and I think it will be bucs sucs year.

VW- Yup. I'm back. I have some stuff I've been writing. You know me. I just shut down sometimes. Self preservation. ;-)
