Wiping the dust off…

Posted: November 14, 2009 in Life Lessons

Several people have asked me why I don’t blog anymore. I knew the answer, but refused to put myself out there. At the time, I felt it really wasn’t any of their business.

The Beach Chair, even back to the blogspot days, has been an outlet for me to stay sharp on my writing as well as a place to express my thoughts on various subjects to a wide-ranging audience. It was intended to spark debate and conversation. For the most part, it has.

But when the motivation for writing changes, one must step back and take a long look at why you’re typing what you’re typing. Once the publish button is hit, there’s no turning back.

My world, the last 5-6 months has been an emotional rollercoaster, filled with anxiety, anger, depression, frustration and what ever description you can think of.

And while I reached an all-time low, it was a learning experience that I wouldn’t change. People go through things all the time, some more public than other, but it’s not what happens while you go through, it’s how you respond after the storm.

So why didn’t I write about it?

I didn’t want to the the angry blogger who wrote out of spite and emotion, foolishly taking shots and people through the written word. I could’ve easily used the Beach Chair as a forum to do that, I simply chose not to.

In hindsight, maybe I should’ve. But that’s neither here nor there.

With the end of 2009 right around the corner, my hope is to return to the blogging world on a more consistent basis. Because quite frankly, I missed it.

    And we missed you! Hope you come back, in whatever form is most comfortable for you.
