At Year’s End

Dear readers,

It’s the end of the year and I am tired.

2014 was a challenging year.  There were a lot of ups, don’t get me wrong, and I made some fantastic memories.  But boy, am I eager to see it go.  I actually wrote up a big post analyzing my year, explaining everything that happened and whatnot.  But I don’t think I’m going to post it.  I feel like I should be putting more effort into the whole blogging thing.  I feel like I should engage more, follow more blogs, immerse myself in the splendor that is WordPress.  I want to.  But lately, whenever I think about sitting down to write a simple post… all I can think of is how tired I am.

The words are there.  There are so many things I can say right now.  But I’m not sure if I want to talk.  I’ve got a long road ahead of me and there are a number of stories to tell.  Right now, though, I don’t know if I want to let people in.  I just want to hole up in myself and be.

It’s been quiet here on my blog since Christmas.  It’ll be a quiet New Years–I’m going to Wisconsin for a few days to celebrate Christmas with extended family and won’t have internet access.  It may be quiet for a while.  I’ll come back, don’t worry. At this point, blogging is in my blood.  I’ve been doing it since I was fifteen and know I won’t be able to stop.  But, for now, my stories need to be mine for a while.

In light of all of this, I just want to let you know (yes, YOU reading these words) how much you mean to me.  I haven’t engaged with you as well as I should, but know that wherever you are, I am thankful for you.  Thank you for taking time to read my blog, and I look forward to getting to know you better as 2015 comes around.

Happy New Year, friends!  Let’s make this next one the best yet.

    Sometimes you just have to take some time with yourself. I totally get that. I honestly haven’t felt a lot like blogging lately either, but I’ve kind of been forcing myself to since I ended up making a goal that I’d publish at least one post each day in Decemeber. I think that shows in the work I’ve been publishing, too. Once I get to the end of this month, I may take at least a few days off.

    I hope you have a happy New Year; I’m looking forward to seeing what you bring to your blog in 2015, whenever that may be. 🙂

      p.s. by the way, I just nominated you for the Versatile Blogging Award. I completely understand if you don’t accept, especially after reading this post, but I do love your blog, Amelia, and you were the first person I thought to nominate when I decided to accept the award myself.

        Thanks so much, Britta! I’m honored! I’ll definitely accept the award and will make a post about it eventually. (Sorry for the delayed reply… I’ve been pretty much off the grid for the past week.)

    That’s totally understandable. I’ve been pushing myself to blog as well of late – given how much my blog has expanded I almost feel compelled to blog, as though I owe it to my readers. Even though it’s “break” and I should have more time, I feel tired all day everyday. Anyway, it was good to finally see a post from you – I’d be lying if I said I hadn’t missed your posts. Hope you enjoy your time in Wisconsin. See you soon *hugs*
    p.s.- I just remembered, since you’re getting there a few days ahead of me, there is a humidifier in a box in the mess under my bed. Feel free to dig it out (fill it up with water) and use it if you want 🙂
