This wasn’t an easy decision to make – honestly, it has been the most debated decision of my life.
If you follow me on Instagram, then you would know that this weekend I had gone to meet my would be in-laws (the meeting went fine and they loved me; at least I think so 😛), but it also gave me time to reflect – I spent my time reading to get my mind of this stressful and that’s when I realized that through all the wonderful new experiences I was gaining as a Blogger, there was one experience I was slowly losing on – reading purely for pleasure.
It took me this weekend to realise that my reading has become a part of the deadlines; where before I used to be able to pick up books according to my mood; and now I pick them up, depending on when the review is due. I love re-reading my favorites, and it’s been months since I have been able to do so, for having a blog, a full time job and a love life doesn’t really leave much time for me!
And that’s exactly what is happening – falling in love with a man, my man has been the most wonderful experience of my life; having this blog and sharing my love for books is another beautiful part of my life – but both these parts, though rarely intersecting, became my whole life – but that never left a part for just me – the part, the time where I spent with my books – my refuge.
But that’s not all that happened this weekend – I am getting married in the next three months – those three months are going to be the most frustratingly wonderful experience of my life. And I am so looking forward to sharing those frustrations and amazing moments with my guy.
But that means that I will not be able to do my wedding preparations, my full time job and be able to do justice to this baby that I have created and nurtured.
This weekend has led me to make a decision that is breaking my heart – but it is one that I know that I really need to make – I am taking a break from blogging at least until March 2017!
It wasn’t an easy decision to make – but for the upcoming 3-4 months, I NEED reading to be my refuge, my safe place so I don’t turn into a Bridezilla 😉
I will still be active on Instagram, Goodreads and hopefully on Facebook – I won’t ever leave the beautiful world that we readers have created for ourselves – and I hope that you won’t let go either ❤
