A Personal Decision

For all of my readers whether on my blog or Facebook, I feel I need to let you all know I am taking a break from writing and not sure when I will get back to it. I have been going through depression for over seven years, but I have reached a phase in my recovery where I need to take time off from the career (writing) that I was pursuing. I can’t handle the stress it brings and I just have so much fatigue, and trouble focusing, and little motivation to do anything. Things are a LOT better than they used to be so I know therapy and such are working, but right now, I need to take a break from things and just let myself read some self help books and meditate on what I learn and just take it easy and try to enjoy life as it is…learn to accept the positive changes in my life and embrace them and NOT be afraid of them. So, I have some things to focus on in my personal life, so you may not see me post for a while at least not about writing projects. On Facebook, you won’t seem promoting any of my work and I probably won’t be participating in Camp NaNo or National Novel Writer’s Month this year.

I hope you all understand. This break will give me time to reflect on the changes in my life, how to accept them and deal with all of the hardships and changes I’ve been through as a result.  I am on a journey of self discovery…and only God knows where that will lead me.

God bless you all in all you do as he guides you on the right path.

    Talk To God

    I talk to God today
    I talk to God about…
    Well, I talk to God about my day
    Talk to God about my health
    I told him about my emotions
    How I love talking to God
    Do you talk to God too?
    I Talk to God yesterday
    I talk to him when, I am ashame
    I talk to God about my goals
    I talk to God as I pray
    When I talk to God I am in such peace
    Talking to God replenishes my spirit
    Like a prayer poem from my heart
    I talk to God
    Yes indeed, talking God is my life
    I talk to God when nothing is fulfilling
    “I praise God” when I talk to God
    I hope you talk to God Today.

  2. Hello, Janis. I know how it feels to go through depression, anxiety, frustration. As well afraid that you haven’t done what you suppose to do. I am idealitic as well. But I like finished what i started. However, i tend to go over board into days instead hours working on something. Especially when I need rest. I find comforting when I can pray even to have guidance from God. When he does take control he whispers to my heart and soul and those words are like volumes of his Holy Spirit going right through me. I want you know you not alone. Your his vessel that he works through. Even when you weak thy is strong. At your weakness he will take control and have your writing even when you don’t expect it. I know because he uses my spirit constantly for that purpose. I have prayer out for you my friend. And if you ever need talk or need some help I will do my best to assist. Oh i have enclose a poem I hope give you comfort. I also design this poem on a bookmark so can be use within Holy bible study or etc.
