Since I started my blog last June 2015, I blog almost everyday… blogging break has never came to mind as I enjoyed every single bit of it. Although at times that I’m not physically into it but mentally, my brain is constantly working on it. Blogging is just ridiculously addictive so to speak. Good thing about it, it keeps my brain productively occupied even when I’m asleep as it enters into my subconscious mind too. That’s how blogging conquered my world. I know how absurdly crazy it is being too engrossed with it and thus I’m avoiding it to become a burden rather than a hobby and an indulgence as it should be. However, I felt my blog recently was kind of stale and worsened when I suddenly caught up in the midst of a writer’s block. Yes, a blogging break is all I need to freshen things up and be back on track I guess.
“Sometimes a break from your routine is the very thing you need.”
January is a month starting a new year, while at home, it’s also a month with two celebrations in line. My husband’s birthday and our 8th year wedding anniversary. I always dread to think of the cost of presents to buy at this time because Christmas won’t fail to make me skint. But hey! everything is not about the cost, it’s how you celebrate it that matters shall we say. It’s my husband’s 40th, so celebration should be made extraordinarily special. Hence, a family holiday was booked, the best gift you can give to a travel addict. I must admit I didn’t pay the entire holiday costs though, needed much financial help from him but he’s fine with it. So that makes everyone happy.
Talking about the need to have a blogging break… is this not so much of a coincidence? I think it’s safe to say that having family holiday is just a perfect excuse for a blogging break. Oh! not just a break from blogging, but the best time to disconnect from the internet world. No Facebook, no Twitter, no Instagram…where social media is literally been put aside. The limited to zero internet access where we were did it all for me. I won’t say I totally love it as I’m starting having withdrawal symptoms after 10 days but I made the most of being off the web.
“Time with Family is Time well spent.”
Off we went for a family holiday for 2 weeks in Florida. We spent good quality time together, where my focus is solely my family and nobody else. We spent days exploring different places, learning their culture and tasting their food. We spoiled ourselves with the beautiful beaches under the bright blue sky and the warmth of the sun. Watching my two kids happily playing in the sand like it didn’t exist in the UK was a satisfaction. Family bonding moment like this is priceless and precious where the beautiful memories remains forever.
Now we’re back to the real world after two weeks of well-deserved holiday. It also means we’re back to the normal routine again and back to blogging too.
When was the last time you had a blogging break?
