What can I say? I haven’t blogged for nearly three months! Even worse apart from textbooks, magazines, and newspapers, I haven’t been reading much either. My family and friends were pretty shocked at this prolonged complacent behaviour to the extent that they began giving me a hard time about it. And while I did feel mildly disappointed with myself I really didn’t feel bad enough to do anything about it and would tell people to relax and that I’d update my blog soon. (Read the last two comments on my last post on Mother’s Day. You’ll see what I mean).
Yesterday my mother very sternly told me to get back to blogging soon. Apparently they didn’t think I was doing much else that was worthwhile compared to blogging. That, coupled with the realisation that even while day dreaming I was almost always thinking about writing, helped pull me out of my cozy couch of nonchalance and self indulgence. (If you saw how much I’ve been shopping these past three months you’ll know what I mean). I also made up my mind to blog today under any circumstances because I would be very unhappy if I was the one person who got in the way of my own dreams. Plus I’ve missed my blogging community! And I feel too ashamed to read and comment when I haven’t updated my blog for three months!
This time I won’t be making my usual promises to blog regularly. Not that I intend on many more three – month long sabbaticals. It’s just that if it happens again I don’t want to feel so terrible. Blogging is supposed to be fun!
Looking forward to catching up on all that I’ve missed in the blogging world!
