If you haven't noticed, my blogging, writing, photo taking has come to a screeching halt.
I'm walking away for a bit.
(there is a lot on my plate right now and the time simply escapes me, but I'm not throwing in my blogging towel yet. I used to think blogging was a priority, like it HAD to be done. That's changed. I still like doing it, I am just no longer going to go out of my way to make time. If I find time, well great I'll jot down my thoughts. If not...well life goes on. )
My family is more important and at this point in our lives we as a family have things to get on track before I play on the computer during any spare time I actually get.
A few weeks ago my son spoke from his heart and I have to listen. It took major guts for him to share it with me and I owe it to him to comply.
He thinks that I put blogging and my laptop before him.
Folks, that killed me.
Then I took a deep, deep look and in retrospect, I did spend way to much time on the computer in front of him. He didn't get my full attention, after the baby it became even worse.
Personally, I think we probably all spend a little bit too much time plugged into something these days. When is the last time you went out with friends or spouses that someone at the table didn't check their Facebook or twitter or email?
Until I get time carved out for myself at night or on the weekend I have to step away for now
because I'm missing the real life that is in front of me and I'll never get those moments back.
I want to hold on tight to those moments, real tight.
