I'm back. After almost 2 months of absence from the blogging world, I can say I really missed all of you. I'm not sure what exactly happened. I just felt like life is just a routine. I do the same things over and over until I cannot help but feel bored and restless. Wake up in the morning, go to work, get home, blog, surf the net, sleep, and wake up again. To do what? To go to work again. The cycle continues. It may be enjoyable at first, doing what I do. But right in the middle of it, sometimes I cry out and say, "I need a break!"
When I reached this point of staleness, I just had to stop. I then decided to take a break. Breathe. Relax. Maybe the problem was I had taken everything so seriously, squeezing away all the fun and excitement life offers.
Last week I had the luxury of getting away from it all for a while- away from everything that gave me anxiety, fear and stress. It was not escaping from my responsibilities. It simply meant taking a much-needed temporary break.
And as I did this, I took time to reflect and look into myself. What had I been investing my life into? Evaluated present relationships. Thought of questions like, "What had I been pursuing in my life? Was I growing as a person" Had my character been strengthened lately? What had I been struggling with?"
I am very thankful that the break became a source of motivation - to inspire me to face the coming days with renewed strength and a fresh vision. It's like starting all over again. The break also made me look up, realign my life with God's direction and realizing that He has been watching me all along, waiting for that cry for help.
