I’ve been writing this post over and over in my head and I still don’t quite know where to start. So I’ve decided to just start writing… and see what words come to me as I type. If you were a regular reader of my blog, you may have wondered where I disappeared to or why I haven’t written anything in the last few months. And unfortunately there’s no other way to put it other than – I’ve been in a black hole… ever since my Mom passed away at the beginning of this year. It sounds rather dramatic I know. But it’s the best explanation I can give to describe the space I’m in. My Mom was my inspiration for starting this online space at the beginning of last year. She fought cancer bravely for almost 2 years. During that time I had to learn to accept the idea of Death. The funny thing is I learnt to accept the idea of myself dying. But nothing, absolutely nothing can prepare you for the loss of a loved one. For the loneliness. For the pain. Or for the mindf–k that grief causes you.
I still don’t quite have the strength or energy to deal with blogging consistently and regularly. So for now, I will be posting as and when I can. And hopefully by slowly returning to blogging it may also provide some light to me in this dark tunnel.
So yes, it’s been a crappy 2017 for me so far…so please bare with me and thanks for sticking around.
