I’ve had a break from blogging. Time to restart. Mainly because I forget things, and spend too much time searching for that idea, quote, reference, or activity.
I’ve had a mini break (three weeks) from all forms of media too: no internet = no email, blogs, Twitter, Facebook. Nothing. During that time I was travelling through Mongolia.
It helped me to remember who I am.
The constant status games on social media, one-upmanship, and happy, smiling faces is, frankly, demoralising. Everyone’s life just seems so much better, more successful, and happier than mine. The truth is much more nuanced.
As the Mongolians would say: “Do not start if afraid, once begun do not be afraid.”
