I've been having a rough time the last few weeks. Disorientation, a head cold that became a chest cold, suffering from tachycardia, being diagnosed with anemia, and just plain feeling like crap. But it all fell into perspective yesterday when one of my daughter's came home from work early, with tears in her eyes. She had received a phone call while at work that would set our family on end; her boyfriend's cousin was killed in a tragic farm accident.
Now, he wasn't just some guy we had heard of; he had been a guest in our house on numerous occasions, and was well liked by our extended family as well. We are all in shock.
Such a shocking occurrence makes you think about a lot of things; what-might-have-been for such a hard-working and promising young man, for starters. But of course, introspection is another side-effect. Priorities suddenly change, perceptions are altered. What was important yesterday doesn't register on the scale today.
So what I'm trying to say is that I need to narrow my focuses in my life. I'm dropping NaNoWriMo, streamlining my blog, and of course placing my family first, and focusing on my health,and focusing my writing. Clutter has to go from my life in all it's multiple corners.
As of late, I haven't been posting very regularly. I will continue to post, just not as often as I have in the past. And I will continue to visit you all when I can. This blogging community is such a wonderful group, I could never just walk away! Don't feel sorry for me, my lovelies. I'm just following a new path from this day forward.
