I haven’t updated my blog in a while and if so, only irregularly. I might have mentioned some of the reasons somewhere but I don’t know. Which is funny, because usually I was always able to recall the most recent things I wrote. But right now, I would need to cheat and take a look. I think as soon as the blog is not one of your main focusses in your life anymore as other things happen, you make room for what takes more time. If you enjoyed my posts in the past, don’t be disappointed, these are not my final words on this blog. I will occasionally share my thoughts or pictures, and maybe there will be a time when I do it excessively again (because it’s a cool activity I do enjoy when there is time). But right now, I am at home with the flu or something, so, at least near-term, you can expect some posts over the next days or not. What happened recently in my life?
Well, a while ago, I found an occupation that is very compatible with my health problems that plagues me over two decades. Some of you know, it came and go, but I’ve always had a lowered stress level, and it resulted in anxiety, later depression and sleep problems. While it became less and less of an issue over time as I learned to live with it and listen to signals that my body and mind shows me, or as I learned strategies to deal with it when there is a bad time again, it never really disappeared entirely. Job-related that has been a huge problem. But the problem at least disappeared for now as I have a highly flexible occupation, with flexible hours, one where I can use many of my pre-existing skills, which releaves a lot of stress. But I am happy that this is now the case but it also means that it takes some of my time away and you put your priorities for the free time differently.
Meanwhile, some of you have read it, my mother got my cousins baby as foster-child since birth and it’s still the case. And I am a family guy, visit my mother regularly, and eventually became involved too, by taking care in the free time as well. This is not really a huge problem for me, it’s actually a lot of fun. And hey, it’s my foster-sister, and I saw her growing up, she turned 2 years old recently. It’s also not that I give up all my free time, it’s more that the more things happen, the less time you have to distribute on different of your interests. So, you need to manage it more, but I don’t come too short. I still do all the things I like. ALthough, photography maybe came a bit short recently, but if I want to share an image on my blog, I could still look for one in my library that contains several thousand not yet uploaded photos (laugh). Oh, and by the way, my cat doesn’t come too short, I am regularly at home.
I hope you all had a good time too!
