Ally’s Thoughts: Did You Take A Break For Yourself?

Dear friends and readers,

If you are reading this, I want to thank you so much. As much as I want to write for myself, I can’t help to feel grateful to all of you. You have touched my life with the likes and comments. Again, thank you.

A year ago, on 9th May 2020, I lost a fellow friend that I knew from WordPress. Her passing was sudden and I texted her a day before. Her blog mostly talks about her life, the struggles, the pain, the loss of her mom. While her friends managed her Instagram account, her blog still exists. Adding to this emotional remembrance was her final post. A poem with the title Gone.

In the end, I am just and will be a memory.
In yours I hope.

I can’t help to feel the pain in her words. I hope I am not the only one feels it too. May you rest in peace, friend.

Today, I searched through my comments section and realized some of you went missing too. Some of you returned. I can’t help to think about it at the back of my mind. Are you alright? Did something happened? Did you take a break for yourself? Will you come back?

The pandemic made it worst for some of us. I hope you are not overworking yourself. I hope you take a little rest too. I might sounds selfish, that is probably true. If you are willing to trust me, taking a break is necessary. Especially in our journey in life. Don’t blame yourself for it, you deserve it. We all deserves a break before we proceed to keep on going forward.

Even I had to take a break. Some times can be painful and I can’t bring myself to get up. It’s just that I realized that to feel alive is when we struggle for it. Moreover, I believe in the lessons in each speed bumps I have to go through. I hope you do too.

I think that is all for now. I hope you are doing well and take care of yourself. Please take a break when you have to! Stay safe and until next time.

  1. Having blogged for 5 years now, I have seen what a wonderful community this is and have certainly felt it when someone leaves or dies. When we’re on here almost daily, learning about people, it becomes more than virtual. I am sorry for the loss of your friend. And, you are right. Even though there’s light up ahead, this year has taken its toll on each one of us.
