Just taking a breather

Hi my lot I'm back after a break. I was getting to overwhelm with the different responsibilities of my life so I had to take a break to gather my thoughts. Now that I'm back I realize how much I miss my lot and my friends. Hope everyone has been well. The reason I took a break is to manage my personal life as well as my working life. How about you did you ever needed to take a break so that you could gather your thoughts?

You got to do what you got to do. Priorities take first place and if you need to disappear for a while, it's totally acceptable. Everyone needs their time away and there is nothing wrong with it. I took a couple of months off at one time because there was just too much going on, and I had to take care of business first before anything else. It just makes you feel better. Hope all is well with you now and your thoughts are clearer than they were..that's the most important thing out of anything.

Very well said. :) I believe having peace of mind and being in touch with one's inner self is a great way to feel positive about yourself and life in general! :D

Yeah life is so complex,so much going on it feels like everyone and everything needs you at the same time. I'm sure a lot of people on mylot at one piont took some time off. Because there's things on the outside that needs to be taken care of. Business always comes first but never forget about dessert take care. :-)

Sorry, I've been gone again for a while. Life is complex and there is quite a bit going on. My daughter got married on the 13th of October so I haven't been here much. She's more important than anything along with my other daughter. ajlasent....peace of mind is very important. Without peace of mind, you can just plain go crazy. Important matters come first before all other things, but I never forget to look at what makes me happy too. fransmonlot....I never forget about dessert, which for me, is the moon at night, a beautful tree, or a playful kitty.

Thank you Silverfox I'm glad to be back at mylot. Yes I understand I'm in the same boat as you. I work during the day and come home and do my work online yes it can be quite exhausting. It's good you take a day of every week. You need to regain your strength and regroup yourself and think about how to improve your life. Take care and happy mylotting.

I find that every so often i take a break from my lot and after a while of not being active on the site I begin to really miss it.But when I am active on the site for a while i eventually get tired of posting.This is probably because when i am active on the site i am very active and can only keep up that rate of posts for a short amount of time.Though maybe I will keep this posting rate up for longer as I am saving up for something I really want.

Well I hope you do get what your saving up for. It's understood that after numerous postings you get tired and need a break. Your mind can only come up with a certain amount of things to post about. With that said happy mylotting.

I have... :) and I found out that giving myself time to think really helped me see things properly, more clearly. Sometimes we get too befuddled when there are so many things going on and we just need to take a step back, relax, and see things from a different point of view. ;) I hope you're feeling better now, and that all of your responsibilities and other aspects in life are smooth sailing. :D and... welcome back to myLot!

Yes life can deffinately get overwhelming sometimes. And you do need to take a break and reflect on your life. Reflect on the things that has happen in your life and reflect on the things you want to happen in your life. When you take a step back and reflect that will change your point of view of life and help you realize what really matters. Yes I'm feeling better. Well unfortunately it will take sometime to get my feet back on the ground but I'm hopeful that I will get my life back together. Thanx for your kind words and for caring. :-)
