To My Followers (if I have any left)

Dear Reader(s),

The last few months have been quite stressful. In today’s post, I want to share a blogger update to my followers.

On the outside appearance, I appear to be normal, happy and fun to be around. At night,  my heart feels heavy with everything that’s been happening.  Anxiety sets in which then causes another sleepless night. I am lucky if  I get three or four hours of sleep.

If you know me very well, you know that I tend to hold it all in. I have a hard time reaching out for help. I shut down and block everyone and everything out, including this blog. For that, I do apologize for my inactivity.

If you have been reading this blog, you’ll also know that I battle depression and anxiety.  Sometimes, it’s easier to plunge into work, because at least I have some control over that part of my life.

I believe it would be counter-productive to go into detail of the last few months as I feel that I am in a much better place mentally and spiritually.

Instead, I’ve decided to share the positive events in my life:

  1. I’ve had a full plate at work, which worked for me as I love throwing myself into projects.  I thought it would slow down a bit during the summer but instead, got even more swamped. I have been able to develop some amazing partnerships with new and existing employers.  I also had a few speaking engagements to raise the awareness on hiring individuals with disabilities and at each event. there was a lot of dialogue on misperceptions and misinformation. Last week, I had the opportunity to present my first award to an employer at our annual general meeting.  That was thrilling!
  2. I have been throwing myself back into school. I’ve decided to pursue my communication degree.
  3. I attended my first toastmasters meeting. It was a lot more entertaining than I expected it to be. I always thought it was more business-like but this group was lively and engaging. I loved it! I even participated in the table talk portion of the night. Toastmasters has been a goal of mine for the last 5 or 6 years but always found a reason why I shouldn’t go. I am looking forward to next week’s meeting.

Before I close, I want to thank those that reached out to me. People have emailed me or sent me messages on social media. I will be following up over the next few weeks and replying to the emails.

I can’t guarantee that I will be actively blogging as I did earlier. But I do promise to be more consistent and write more. I believe that writing is a stress reliever, however, I just couldn’t do it these past few months. I would start to write and press the delete button. I’d start over and delete the written words again. I am now ready to share my life experiences and hope that you can continue joining this journey with me.

Much love, Rosie

  1. Oh Rosie well done for making such positive plans. Don’t be too hard on yourself if you are unable to achieve them all but do celebrate your achievements with us. I do empathise. For no apparent reason to the world I sometimes have periods when I freeze, finding social media so very hard and I lack confidence – so you are not alone and you are very brave talking about it. Big virtual hug. Dianax

    • Thanks Diana!
      Unfortunately, I have an all or nothing personality. I either commit fully or not at all. I knew that I couldn’t commit fully to the blog and therefore had to take a break.
      I currently manage 6 social media profiles, and it became way too much to handle on top of what I was going through personally. Thanks again for the kinds words of encouragement!
