It's time for me to take a break. You know how I knew it was time for me to take a break? I woke up this morning, and I thought, "I need to take a sabbatical from blogging." And Jason woke up and said to me, "I want you to take a sabbatical from blogging." Funny, huh?
Before I leave, I wanted to tell you a few things. First, the reason for the sabbatical is not because anything is wrong with me and Jason. We are fine. In fact, things have never been better.
Second, the reason for the sabbatical has nothing to do with any of you. I love your sweet e-mails, your comments on the blog, and I am grateful for your friendships.
The simple reason is, what I put on this blog is real. This is us. This is who we are. And laying it all out there leaves us exposed. And sometimes, that's a hard place to be in.
Ernest Hemingway once said it is easy to write. Simply sit down at the typewriter, slit your wrists, and bleed. I am a writer. But I never really knew what that meant until I began blogging what was on my mind and in my heart.
Jason's idea of me taking a break is a bit more intense than what I had in mind. There will be no e-mailing, chats, forums, reading other blogs, or writing here. But I'm doing what he says and I'm honestly looking forward to a bit of time to re-group.
I will be back. Not sure when, but I will. I'm following his lead. Thanks to all of you for your support. It's meant more to me than you'll know.
Be safe, be happy, and be good. ;)
