midlife crisis

Trying This Blogging Thing Again

After years of fading more and more from the internet, I’ve decided to come back. To WordPress and Instagram. Still not Facebook. Even though most of the people I know are on Facebook, I just can’t make myself go there. Facebook makes me unhappy for reasons I haven’t yet figured out.

WordPress never made me unhappy, I just got overwhelmed by trying to follow too many photo blogs. Photo blogs post a lot, sometimes multiple times a day, every day! And I got involved in the photo challenges and all that and then burned out on it and wanted to change gears but didn’t really know what I wanted to do or how to do it.

Then I fell deeper into the midlife funk I’d been feeling for awhile and I withdrew. That’s what I do. When I’m going through something, I withdraw. I don’t ask for help. I don’t reach out to friends, I just keep to myself. It’s not healthy. And it hasn’t made me happy. So, I’m going to stop doing it.

It’s time for me to wake up and break out of this funk!

  1. YAY!

    I’m happy to see you back posting again, and I see the critter roll call has been updated, because I don’t recall seeing a picture of Gary before. And I’m unfamiliar with Gemma entirely!

  2. That’s funny because last night I started my next post which is all about Gemma. I can’t believe I haven’t mentioned her. She’s such a sweetie and we’ve had her for a year and a half!
