Taking a break.

Sunday, March 02, 2014

I've decided to take a break from everything for a while. I'm not giving up. Quite the contrary. I have come to the realization that I have to do something different with my life. I have to figure out how to go in a different direction, and I don't feel like I can change my life if I keep doing the same things I always do (example: internet, tv, sitting around, hiding out at home, etc.) I'm not exactly sure what I need or want right now, or for the future...I just know I need to spend some time reflecting, working through my pain and grief, and developing some new habits. Emotionally, I'm at the point where I can barely get out of bed. I am absolutely exhausted ALL the time, no matter how much sleep I get. I'm just not at all healthy...mentally or physically...and I have to change this. I just need to take a break from my usual distractions. I need a mind-body-soul detox. I have no clue how to even begin, but I think it will come in time. I'm probably just rambling at this point. All I know is that I don't feel at all well, mentally or physically...and I need to change this and I want to change this. Honestly, I'm so tired, I don't "want" to, but of course I really do. I just feel like I'm wasting away. I have to make changes in my life.

I need to give myself LIFE.

    You have made the first BIG step - recognizing what's wrong. I would recommend a good check-up just to make sure nothing serious is physically wrong.

    If you have access, I would recommend acupuncture to help bring your body into balance. I did it every 2 weeks for several years when I was battling some health and emotional issues, and it helped tremendously.

    Do what you have to do to get back to your center. We are all here and will be here in the interim if you happen to stop back in or need some support.

    You are not rambling, you are honestly stating where you are. I understand exhaustion. There is no shame in being tired. Everything is harder when we are tired. I hope you are able to recharge your batteries. Take good care.

    Just take your time but don't waste it. if you find you aren't getting anywhere with your soul searching remember to speak to your health care provider about possible depression. It has a sneaky way about it. I wish you peace and inspiration to find your direction.

    Most of us need to do that occasionally - we will still be here as will the entire SP community when and if you return. Be blessed and I wish you success in your new ventures

    I've been where you are quite a few times. Sometimes it is hard to make things work when we are dealing with so much. It becomes overwhelming.
    There is no shame in taking a break, but please know that you have support here at SP any time you're ready to come back!

    I hope you find what you are looking for, and that you are able to find that energy you seek. Definitely talk to your doctor to see if you are not getting enough sleep or there is some other factor causing it.
    I wish you well and hope to see you on spark again soon!
