I go on a lot of blogging absences, mostly unannounced. The problem with long hiatuses is that when you try to get back on track it’s difficult because you don’t know where to start or how to oil the machine. I barely have readership anymore so I rely on the fact that I am now blogging for myself. I guess I blame all the other micro-platforms for making me lose my ability in full-time blogging. The need to construct sentences and paragraphs are turning out to be quite tedious.
My life is starting to take a backseat. I’m now back to weekends at home after constant partying since the end of last year. It’s a good change of pace, and I feel like my old self again. Listening to more music, watching more shows and movies, communicating with more people again.. but also leaves room for more thoughts that aren’t always pleasant. The perks of music blasting and alcohol constantly pumping your veins is its ability to be able to drown out unwanted feelings and thoughts.
On a lighter note, I’ve been participating in this Instagram project called #100HappyDays. It’s pretty self-explanatory, you find something that makes you happy every day for 100 days and post a corresponding photo. It’s a good exercise to appreciate the little things, because sometimes when we look for happiness we tend to look for the bigger picture, the WOW factor when sometimes it’s just as small as your local Starbucks finally getting your name right. So here’s my special tag for this series: #happyxjuicers and I’m currently on Day 43. Almost halfway there!
