Sorry I’ve Been a Bit Remiss


To all you lovely people out there who follow my blog and read what I post, to those people who read whatever I write and those who come looking for something in particular … I just need to say I’m sorry.

I’ve been quite remiss over these last few months, and with this coronavirus outbreak and the restrictions imposed I’m finding it difficult to get the historical and creative juices flowing. Stuck in a bit of a rut with my mental health but I had a really helpful conversation with a good friend yesterday and I think I can feel the juices beginning to flow again.

Courage doesn’t roar. Sometimes courage is the silent voice at the end of the day that says ‘I will try again tomorrow’.

Mary Anne Radmacher

I stumbled across the above quote on Facebook earlier, on the Habits for Wellbeing page, and it shouted at me. I had to share it. When it comes to blogging I will try again tomorrow or however many days it takes to get there.

This might seem like something that a lot of people are posting about at the moment, but my friend reminded me that blogging is about yourself and what you want to write, as well as the people you hope will read it. Maybe this is a selfish post to remind myself that I need to put less pressure on myself and write what I want to write.

In other words … look out for some new content in the coming weeks as I try to find my style again!
