Saying goodbye to blogging, for now

rose candela

This is my 256th blog on this site. I’ve spent 6 years here writing weekly, 12 years writing in general for you to read (throwing back to my blogspot days!).

Blogging is a deep place of love for me, it’s like my home.

Today, I retire it — if only for a few months, as I sort out my new life (again!) as covid-19 has closed down everything, and we’re quarantining ourselves as a family.

We’re on day 6 of quarantine here, and I’ve gotten a grasp at how different my day-to-day looks now that my son isn’t in preschool, and now my husband is working from home.

There are some freedoms right now. The lack of choices of what to do, where to go, what party to attend or friend to meet is feeling spacious (at this moment, yesterday I was in utter despair about it).

And it feels immensely incredible to have my husband home every night now (he averaged about 3 nights a week before).

But, my bandwidth is very low. I’m struggling in some areas, and want to show up to the places that matter most with my full heart.

My business/work side of life is going towards making impeccable content and showing up for my membership, Time Keeper Collective. It’s going towards collaborative moments to make art with my son, or while he’s engaged for a few minutes in his own project.

I’m learning to get radical about my self care so I can continue to feel freedom within this time. Like, rituals to help me wind down at night, limited screen/news time, exercise every day, reading good books, journaling when I have too much on my mind, wiping down the counters or cleaning the clutter from homeschooling…and being gentle with myself as I fall off of these routines.

I’m certain I will write during this covid-19 quarantine time. If I’m honest with myself, I write more than I do any other practice in my life. But the ability to edit/publish blog/get graphics right/share blog on the right channels, phew. It takes more effort then I’ve got.

For now, farewell my dear reader. This will pass and we will come out an even greater group of humans.

I’ll see you in my membership if you feel called to join.

I’ll be back blogging in a few months, once life returns to a different normal.

My wish for you: Trust your instincts in this time. As life becomes quieter, you’ll be able to hear your inner voice more and more. What do you hear?How can you trust what you hear? What does that voice give you courage to do, next?

I can’t wait to see what emerges for you.

I love you. See you soon.
