I almost never get to post from my home and from my computer. It is so much nicer to be able to see the words on the page, and the publish and formatting options.
Blogging is usually something I squeeze in at work, while I am on a breast pump break or a lunch break, and normally, I do all three at one time. I’ve talked about it being hard to take a break even for lunch. It isn’t because my job is hard. It’s because I’m strongly influenced by the American culture of work guilt that things we should always appear to be working hard and that we do not need a break.
God took a break on the 7th day. We should take breaks.
But blogging is something I really enjoy doing, even though it doesn’t easily fit into my life right now. I am not willing to give up time with baby in the evenings. I don’t think it is one of those things I NEED to do to be able to give to others, like time with God or getting fresh air.
Blogging is a luxury for me.
I enjoy blogging.
I also know that time moves very fast and this is my way of remembering everything.
It is why sometimes, I don’t blog for days at a time.
To the extent that blogging helps me enjoy life, connect with other, and remember to be present, I want to continue to do it.
But on days that it pulls me away from real life, from being present, from savoring the moment, this site will be silent.
