Taking a break


I’ve decided to take a break from blogging, especially the Postaday, as its just taking up too much of my time.  I’ll probably do the photochallenges but for the moment its goodbye.

I seem to be in a place where not a lot is happening, I’m sort of treading water, not doing much and what I do do, I’m doing half heartedly.  I need to rethink just where I’m going with my writing and life.  I need to find a focus, discipline and direction.  To do this, I’m going to put my time into saturating myself in the Word and seeking God’s face.

Thanks to all my followers, you’ve been such a blessing!

  1. Hi Anna,
    it is so eays to get behind in the blogging, and it does take a lot of time. I have trouble just keeping up with the weekly challenges, and it takes time away from my writing. But it is an art form in itself, and good practice for me in writing short pieces. I do love the connection to people all over the world. I hope you find the right balance. Best wishes, Naomi

  3. All the best, a break is needed from time to time.


  4. Yes, it is sometimes good to have a break. In summer I had one month pause because we were very busy.


  5. Thanks so much! Yes, its a time to re-think. If I’m going to write another book, then blogging is well and truly on the back burner, but I may start some painting. It’s finding the new direction that will be interesting, not reaching the end! One thing about our life here is that I actually have the time to make the decision. I don’t do doctrine either, that’s what messes our lives up. Real Christianity, when it’s understood, is the most liberating thing there is! Off for a wander!


  6. I can see from your archive that you’ve dedicated a fair slice of time to this blogging lark – time that you will not be able to recoup in real terms but I’m sure you have been enriched from spending that time.

    I can understand your need to take time out to reflect.and refocus your life – something some of us need to do from time to time. To some people, the need to do this creeps up on them, to others it’s like a blinding flash of revelation – a “‘whoa’, what am I doing with my life” moment. Personally, I avoid it like the plague – the cold (and boring?) determination to follow a path to a fixed end/objective – I’m not sure that will ever be for me. (Hence, the lack of focus in my blog, perhaps.)

    I’m an atheist (from a Christian upbringing), so I will not comment on your grasping solace/direction in religion, except to point out that such doctrines are given, not decided by you, you become a disciple, you will follow the track, not wander in the countryside.

    I wish you the very best in your up and coming deliberations, I have the utmost respect for those who recognise what they need to do for themselves and make the moves to do it.
