It Is Time


My mind is telling me not to but my spirit, oh my spirit is begging.

I need a break. A vacation would be grand. I won't tell you how long it's been since I've had a vacation. It would only depress you :) But a break, even a small one, is much needed.

I know I haven't blogged much in the past two weeks. You're all probably wondering, "what's she got to break from?" I haven't blogged because I'm exhausted. Mentally and spiritually exhausted.

Long story short, I need to regroup. I will not be blogging next week. I may be visiting from time to time, and I'll comment where I wander. But I need the self imposed stress of blogging regularly to be removed for a paltry seven days.

Thank you all for your continued following! I honestly could not do this without you! I look forward to seeing you all on March 01. I do hope being unplugged can help me get out of this funk I'm in. Well, as unplugged as one can be when one works for an IT company.

Have a wonderful weekend, a blessed week and I hope the sun will shine for you and warm up this cold earth. The weather channel is telling me it's going to be in the 60s this weekend. I had to rub my eyes in disbelief. Really? Oh, hallelujah!

Exhaustedly, but cheerfully, yours,
Jen
ps: I will be posting my entry for Mr. Toast's Creative Tuesday, but that will be it for the next week! That will be posted over at my other blog: Sagewood Manor.

Dearest Jen, please do take some time to replenish your soul. We all need to do that for ourselves now and then. Blessings to you.

Oh Jen, I so get it. A break would be nice. I tried to nap yesterday fighing off my own funk and the sun shone on my face. It helped. I miss that sun!

Have a blessed break.

Rest and be still. I believe in you. I even publicly declared it on my blog on Wed. title: Blogging - why do it?

I know a couple others who are taking a break.

I love your words.

Jen,
Enjoy some rest...and we'll all be here when you get back. After all winter is for resting. With spring at our heels...it is so important to gather our strengths for the coming of the garden season.
wishing you a gentle rest

Enjoy some time off, you deserve it, girl!

Unplugged sounds divine about now (as I sit glued in my computer chair...).

Take care of yourself, Jen. The soul knows when it needs freedom. And we're not going anywhere.

Before you take your leave, I wanted to thank you for your lovely, artistic blog. (I posted an award for you this morning. :)

We will miss you!

Jen, you're an excellent example of self care in the works. I'm glad you're listening to yourself and giving yourself what you need. You know we'll all be here when you come back!

Peace,
Erin

Yes, sometimes you just have to back off for a while. We'll be here in March. Take care.

Have a nice time off. I am due for one of those myself.

I think blogging has taken over many lives. I now only blog a few times a week now, and it has helped my writing flow.
You take the break Jen, come back refreshed and tell us all about it.
Hugs

I miss you when you aren't here, Jen! Enjoy your week off and have some fun regrouping. We all need that from time to time. :)

Kristi said...

Definitely take that much needed break! I think most of us bloggers can relate to that! There are weeks that I love it and times when it gets overwhelming for sure!

Enjoy and I hope your unplug refreshes you!

See you when you return!

Gwen Stewart said...

Good for you, Jen. I took a TWO week blogging break a few weeks ago. It was very refreshing, and I came back in much better shape. When I returned, I reduced my posts from thrice-weekly to twice, also a good move.

When you've been blogging for a while, breaks are prudent, I think.

God bless you, and I hope you find much peace in the time off.

Enjoy your time of silence! Rest and renew, I look forward to hearing about how this time changed you and grew your soul!

enjoy it!

Cynthia@RunningWithLetters said...

I can relate...oh, how I can relate....

Do something that recharges you and nourishes your soul--and tell us about it when you return :)

Jody Hedlund said...

Sorry that your job is draining you of your energy, Jen. I pray that eventually you'll be able to move into something that will allow you to use the creative gifts God's given you, into joyful and productive work. Enjoy your blogging break and I hope you come back refreshed!

deb said...

Oh Jen,
rest refresh

I will wish vacation thoughts for you.
I just came back from a getaway with my oldest, wandering NYC and inhaling life.
It matters, the living.
Yours matters.

Write when the time is right.

love to you
