My hat goes off to the people who can pump out books like crazy or who can blog daily. It not only takes commitment, but I admire their ability to avoid mental fatigue, sometimes referred to as ‘burn out!’
And even though I don’t believe I am suffering from total ‘burn out,’ I don’t feel in the mood to write blog entries these days.
Mind you, I don’t want to quit blogging either. I still have a lot to share and a lot to say. I am just not in the mood to go through the process – to edit pictures, to document my experiences and thoughts, to spend the extra time needed on the computer.
And it could actually be because of one and/or a combination of these reasons:
~1~ I have been working so hard on my book that I don’t feel like adding more to my plate.
~2~ I completed my book on Monday and I feel a major sense of accomplishment. Thus, a little time off is well-deserved.
~3~ I have so many unfinished projects that I don’t know where to start. For example, I have posts for my Taiwan Wedding Series that were written over a year ago and still have yet not been published. Can you believe that?
~4~ I learned that life is precious and to enjoy it. And if you don’t feel like doing something, then do something you want to do. For me, that translates to getting out more and exploring. I want to spend more time outdoors, doing the things I love.
~5~ Moon Festival is just around the corner and we will have a full house this weekend. We are preparing for that. Barbecuing and hanging out with friends and family equals fun times!!
~6~ Today is our 10th Canadian anniversary and I am in celebration mode.
So, for now, I will leave you with some photos that I (or my husband) have taken lately. I am off to enjoy the rest of this gorgeous sunny day with my husband.
