Speaking Up if Only for a Moment…


I’m torn.

“By what?”

My emotions of excitement and frustration.

“Why?”

I’m glad you asked.

Hello to my dearest friends from the internet! It’s been a little while since most of you have heard anything come from me. I’ve been active on social media, but only because it’s a normal part of my day. Here, however, I have been quiet, spare the few comments that I have responded to here and there.

I’m excited to be writing to you again. I have not decided to come back to writing on a full-time basis yet, as I am looking at returning in June. However, I wanted to write a little piece to you informing you that I am alive and well.

I’ve taken the last month to be still. I drug myself to a place of mental exhaustion and like any normal human, I needed to take a break. I was told that it was normal and o.k., so I took it as such and left feeling relieved. I’m deeply grateful for all of you expressing your support and friendship! It made the decision a lot easier.

Now I stand (Well, sit) here writing to you with mixed feelings. I’m still feeling mentally exhausted and experiencing a general mindset of “not yet”, but I wanted to say that I’ll be more active in the community. I’m trying to clean up my blog and reorganize my priorities in writing and why I’m doing it.

I can definitely tell you all that things are changing. Not only in my mindset towards writing, but also in my personal life. Even though it has only been 34 days since I last wrote to you, I feel as though it has been a year.

The amount that I have experienced, dealt with, and learned from is baffling. It truly has reinvigorated my mind and offered many new perspectives; of which I intend to write on. Not today, though.

I have experienced an ever-growing desire to create over the last few weeks. I’m thankful for that because it tells me that what I’m doing is working. It’s encouraging because I was afraid I would never have the desire to write again. May it never be so!

If you happen to read this, send me an email and update me on how you’re doing. You can leave a comment if you’d like, but to me, email is more personal. I would love to have deeper friendships with you all. It’s up to you, though. πŸ™‚ Confessionsmalin@gmail.com.

I can’t wait to hear from all of you and to finally catch up on the last month of life. It doesn’t seem like a long period of time, but as I have learned, many a life changing event can happen in a short period.

And to those of you who have followed this blog after I stepped away, I want to formally welcome you to the family. I’m glad you’re here.

If you’d like to keep up with me on a more personal level, feel free to find me on social media using the icons above.

Until next time.

You are loved.Β 

You are valued.

  1. Welcome back! I’ve also been away for a while – surgery on my back + the rehab, but all is good. I look forward to hearing about your revelations and journey of growth. After all, we all learn from each other. Do it when you’re ready. Blogging shouldn’t be pressurized. Its your space, a place of personal experience. Stroll back when the mood takes you πŸ˜‰ we’ll always be here…. at least, I probably will be πŸ™‚

    1. Hello my friend πŸ™‚ Thank you for the kind note! It’s good to hear from you and to be back around the blogopshere. Did the surgery go well? Hopefully your recovery is coming along smoothly.
      That’s the mindset I’m trying to have. No pressure. No forced contributions. Just me. Just my passion. That’s it. πŸ™‚
