It’s funny, but I really feel like you were the most eeehhhhh blogging month for me, so far. And, I actually think that was a good thing. You opened my eyes to the importance of taking time for myself and prioritizing my needs.
It sound very cliche and I do believe it is the most first-world of first-world-problems-that-I-create-for-myself, but I am just not good at putting myself first. My mind just tends to work in a very task oriented, or To-Do list-ish, way. My success is based on a checklist. Thankfully, May, you allowed me to take a step back from that (as much as my control-freak personality would allow). So, thanks for that. Like, thanks a lot for that. I know myself well enough to know that I truly need those reminders every so often.
Of course, this doesn’t mean that I’m fixed, or whatever weird way you want to phrase that; you just taught me that I may miss a post during the week or I may post something that I don’t necessarily believe is Pulitzer Prize worthy… and the world will keep spinning.
And you know, May, even if you weren’t a stellar blogging month you were still a pretty good month, overall. When I do these reflections I tend to look at the blog and forget about most everything else. And that is completely crazy. MGG is my outlet. It’s fun. I do it in my free time. I love it. I really love it a lot. But, I am also a teacher, and I’m in a relationship, and I’m keeping my dog alive/not running through windows, and I am trying to keep in touch with my spread-out family, and I’m staying up-to-date on Game of Thrones, and I’m trying to learn to cast while avoiding wind knots. There’s a lot more than what I write here. All important stuff.
So, thanks for letting me slip up a bit, May. I needed to let go.
I’m ready for some serious June adventures, though.
Thanks for reading,
