I’ve been writing this blog for over 7 years now and it has been one of the most rewarding projects I’ve ever taken on. I shouldn’t even call it a project because it’s never been planned or properly thought out. I just started writing one day and I guess I never stopped. Because this blog was never part of a larger plan, it never felt like work. I wrote because I felt like sharing and it was that simple. Lately, however, I haven’t felt that desire to blog. A big part of it has to do with time – we obviously have our hands full over here – and another has to do with feeling like I want to possibly explore other ways of sharing all of these thoughts and ideas. I promised myself that I would never blog because I have to; only because I want to. This would ensure that this blog remains honest, authentic and a fun outlet for me. It remains all of these things but lately I do feel this self-imposed pressure to blog in the morning, as opposed to this excited urge to run to the computer to write.
So I’ve decided to take a break. I don’t know how long this break will last but I think it will allow me to take a step back and re-assess what the future holds for Lake Jane. I am hoping that I will miss it like crazy and return to the blogging world feeling inspired and energized. But if I don’t, I am confident that I’ll find other ways to stay connected with you wonderful people, who have been nothing but kind and supportive over the past 8 years.
In the meantime, I will be on Instagram and I hope we can keep in touch there.
Thank you thank you thank you for reading this blog. I hope to see you very soon.
