We Interrupt this Blog…

October is National Cybersecurity Awareness Month

It has come time for me to take a hiatus from my blog. October is National Cybersecurity Awareness Month. I will be writing blogs and putting together letter boards to promote that at work. (Here’s one I posted three years ago about cybersecurity for bloggers.) I will be speaking later in the month at a conference on Cybersecurity. As such, I find I don’t have the time/energy for any additional creativity this month and need to give myself permission to breathe. Living with a chronic condition, I find it is sometimes difficult to give myself such permission.

Time is free, but it’s priceless. You can’t own it, but you can use it. You can’t keep it, but you can spend it. Once you’ve lost it you can never get it back.

Writing about my life with fibromyalgia and chronic pain, good sleep hygiene, and my healthy strategies for battling my pain has been a personal passion of mine these last four years. However, dealing with loss and taking on new responsibilities for my family and at work this year have stretched me quite thin. My passions these days are coffee and sleep. 😉

I have written about my personal loss this year, while still trying to maintain a positive attitude and motivate others with series such as “10 Things” and “Letter board.” Even before my father passed, I was debating about whether to continue my blog or not. My writing and content reflects that I have struggled with consistency, content, and creativity this year. At some point we all must decide which things have importance and what we can let go. I plan to use this break to see if my blog still calls to my heart and beckons me to write, or if it is time to let it go…

  1. I think you’re making the right call, you need to do what’s right for you and it sounds like you’ve been stretched very thin with a heck of a lot to deal with. Doing the basics with chronic illness is damn difficult enough, let alone piling on everything else. Being involved in cyber security awareness is a fantastic thing to do, and speaking at a conference is very exciting – good luck, they’re lucky to have you involved! On a selfish note, I do hope you return to blogging after your break (even on a reduced form) as I’d be sad to see you go, but as always, do what’s right for you and there’s no rush, no pressure to decide anything right now. Sending oodles of love and lots of hugs,
