to start again.
Do you ever wish you could
do that? Go back to the way it was at the beginning (of whatever).
like I've lost my way a bit and it took remembering why I started this blog in
the first place (sharing & connection) and my mission statement, if you
will (get kids doing art by inspiring and motivating parents).
can see, I've taken a bit of a break from The Artful Parent over the last
couple of weeks. It was unintentional, as perhaps you know. (Whenever I take an
intentional break, I tell you about it ahead of time and then can't seem to
stay away when I plan to.)
This was me turning away from the computer every time I got close,
unable to face the blog responsibilities or the emails I knew were piling up, flinching when I saw myself around town, avoiding thoughts of
my book. This was me turning inward at a time when I should have been facing
outward. Spiraling downward when everyone around me thought I should be riding
what the mind does.
My doctor gave me a little blue pill to help me get a handle on my brain. I'm doing better now. This isn't the first time I've been on an antidepressant. And not the first time I've both welcomed its relief while at the same time counting down the days and ways until I can get off again.
Anyway, I came here today to explain my absence and to also say that I'm ready to start again. To focus on the simple act of sharing the children's art that I am passionate about.
Will you join me?
