In June when I originally stopped daily blogging it was because mentally and emotionally I needed to process some things and heal before I started writing again.
In September and October when I was silent, it was because I was basically working harder than I had ever worked in my life. I feel like I planned, directed, and officiated a 200 person black tie wedding for a megastar with very important and opinionated guests. It was like the trial that would never end. Emotionally, it wasn’t as hard. Between my years as a human trafficking prosecutor and my husband’s murder, you will understand if I don’t worry quite as much about outcomes of anything that doesn’t involve an immeadiate life or death situation. But physically and mentally I worked harder than I have ever worked in my life, and Ive had a few big jobs in my life.
So now it’s over and I get to breathe and think and write. Breathing is a big thing. Very often during the last month I have tuned in to realize I was not taking breaths.
But the rest I have been looking forward to has begun. Now I can rest and breathe and observe and think and WRITE. It is luxury. Truly.
In the midst of hard times, there can still be moments of unbelievable blessing.
I’m so glad it went well! I’m looking forward to your updates and praying your rest is sweet!
We all need a break at times. I took one to, since May. Glad you see the blessings in your hard work. Sending prayers and hugs your way.
I’m so glad you took a rest. It’s so good to remember what rest feels like. But I still feel like I wan to just keep resting for two years. Or at least three months.
