Yes, I know, I've been AWOL from the blogging world for a month. That's a long time. It was a conscious decision to take a break and focus on my personal and professional life, something that was drastically needed. Prior to that point, I was barely getting enough sleep in a week to put together a single night's sleep. My every waking moment was spent in a haze of sleep deprivation, stress, panic, self-loathing and depression. I desperately needed some me-time to think and regroup. It's time for me to stop bottling up everything I feel, to stop trying to do everything by myself, to stop feeling like a failure when I can't do the impossible, to stop hiding behind a forced smile and a mask. It's time to start letting people in, to start accepting help, to start acknowledging the things that I have achieved, to start to show the real me. To realize that, yes, I'm not always going to be a shiny, happy person, but that's ok.
It's time to really start living 2013. It's going to be a fantastic year.
