Heya. How goes it?
I've been pretty quiet here of late. Busy in real life (what else is new) and I don't really know why, but for some reason, I feel very much like retreating into my little virtual cave.
I don't feel like sharing my every thought on Facebook.
I don't want to put pics of my family up on Instagram.
I don't want to be giving advice to people.
Where before I wanted to share my ideas, now I feel as if writing posts is just one more thing I "have" to get done.
It's all a bit too much at the moment.
I just want to be present with my kids when I am at home.
I want to be able to go to work, earn a bit of pocket money, and come home.
I want to look after my family, cook, learn, help with our business.
I need to cocoon myself away for a bit.
I think that's probably normal and natural - going through cycles of feeling excited about the world and wanting to share that with others and then feeling like that's enough sharing for the moment. Quite possibly it's a very nasty case of PMS and in a week or so I'll get around to finishing off a couple of posts and be back to oversharing with the world.
But for now...just for a bit longer...I'm off to have a little nap.
