As I shared yesterday, the blog has been quiet here and I took a blogging break. My plan is to get back into regular blogging. I've missed it and writing about books and other things as well as connections with the wonderful people that I have met through blogging. I have been reading, although not as much and I plan to change that as well and read more. My focus will be on reading books of my own choosing and not being pressured to review books on a deadline. So, I will be very selective about what I write about in my reviews. I believe I was also struggling with burnout and writers block. I felt pressure to write reviews and my focus now will be on quality reviews/thoughts on books that are short and to the point.
I have dealt with some health issues that have taken my focus away from many things. I am still dealing with this but realized that I need to focus on things that I enjoy and find that balance. Reading and books have always been my favorite things and they bring me joy and happiness so I plan to focus on that along with my health...it's all about balance! As an Occupational Therapist, I started a new part time job, this past fall and work with preschoolers. Besides being exposed to a lot of germs, I have enjoyed the sweetness of these little ones. Early intervention is so important with special needs children.
I appreciate those who are still checking my blog and commenting, your support means a lot to me. I've stayed connected to many bloggers through facebook and I've started visiting blogs today and plan to continue that.
I will share with you what I am reading and I plan to start posting reviews of some of the books that I have been reading.
