Hey guys! I’m Back. Hey guys! I’m Back.
First of all, I owe you an apology. I am very sorry for keeping you in the dark for so long. I should have given you heads up but I didn’t. My bad. Anyway, here’s what happened: your girl was stressed out and needed some self-care! Seriously, I didn’t think I needed a break till I realized I needed one. Fam, this year wasn’t so kind to me. I suffered from anxiety, depression and insomnia in-between simply because I was in a bad place at the time.
After this happened, writing seemed to be my escape (the main reason I started blogging), but it soon began to tell on me. When I started blogging, I used to do so five times a week (Mondays- Fridays) and I sincerely thought I could keep up but nah mehn, I couldn’t. So I had to reduce it to thrice a week, then twice a week but the damage had been done. I was worn out already: swollen eyes from sleep deprivation and midnight tears, constant headaches from overthinking, let’s just say I was a complete mess; a total wreck. I needed to find a balance and I couldn’t think of anything else than to opt for a change of environment.
I decided to travel to clear my head and put my shit back together. Initially, it was difficult because I was so used to the stress but I learned to adjust. During my stay, I figured it would be better for me to stop blogging for a while. However, I concentrated more on spoken word poetry because it was really easy for me to do at the time and even at that, I posted just three poems because the whole point was to rest and not to blog.
But I’m in a good place now and let’s just say I’m ready to keep you all informed and entertained. I haven’t really decided on how many times a week I’d be blogging yet (need to figure out what works for me). But I can assure you that you won’t have to wait so long before a new post comes out. 😉
Well, it feels good to be back and feel alive! Thank you all for your love, understanding, and patience.
It’s your girl, Viano Dee, signing out. Peace!
