Now that I'm teaching full time, I still WANT to blog, but just haven't had the energy yet. As many of you know, we moved from Rio to California and then from California to Alabama... and then I started teaching right away. The transition has been exhausting and, almost a month later, I'm still not feeling 100%. I come home from school feeling like a zombie. I go to bed before 9pm every night. I feel so pathetic... and old.
I also feel pressure. Pressure to blog, pressure to finish our road trip vlog, pressure to say something so that I won't lose any followers. It's all self-inflicted, I know, but I can't help it. I don't want to give up my blog yet. We have so many adventures planned, lots of places we want to explore, that I just don't think it's right to stop blogging. However, the posts might be few and far between, and that makes me feel guilty.
Can I accept that I might lose followers (or not gain followers)? Can I accept that the content might not be as interesting as Christ the Redeemer, the beaches of Rio de Janeiro, or cute little monkeys?
Whether I like it or not, that's how it's going to be for awhile. Maybe things will settle down, I'll get into more of a routine, feel more rested, have more energy, and I'll start preparing more blog posts to share. In the meantime, I'll just have to get to it when I get to it. I do hope that all my lovely readers will continue to check back from time to time (or better yet, subscribe!), so that when I DO share something interesting, you'll be the first to know!
In the meantime, here are some Instagrams of our road trip:
|The most interesting gas station in America?|
|Mario? Are you there?|
|You know you're in the South when...|
I'm still reading all the blogs I follow but I'm not commenting as much anymore... :(
