Blog Song and Dance

I have become increasingly aware of how the blogging world changes for us all. To me it reminds me of song and dance. Sometimes we are feeling at our best and we can dance all night long, so caught up in the moment, we hardly notice how the night just flew by. Sometimes we aren't in the mood or we tire too easily, and so we have to sit a few songs out. Some people decide that going out dancing doesn't fit in with their current lifestyle or doesn't bring the same enjoyment it used to and they stop going.

... and so come the same feelings with blogging. I was kind of shocked and sad to see a few of my favorite people moving on, but realized the bittersweetness of growth. I was also feeling guilty that I have been neglecting to write or comment. In examining my priorities and what is going on in my life, I feel that writing here must be on my terms and when I feel right. My Sacred Insanity was created with the intention of just getting things out. Over time I think it has evolved to be a more in depth story of my past and how I have become who I am today, especially as it relates to addiction and how it almost destroyed me. Right now I need to take a little break from sharing so much, because I am involved in evolving in the present, as I am presented with new life challenges as a parent.

Addiction and loss kind of engulfed My Sacred Insanity and I realized that was okay. I never realized my sharing would help anyone other than me. It just isn't ALL of who I am. I created Acute Verbal Sabbatical as a place where I could share more of me today, and could write in my present struggles and happiness. Every time I want to post, I want to do it here because of the comfort of the people who comment and feel support and give support. I have realized that this isn't the right place for my everyday ramblings and I need some consistency in what is here. 

With that being said, I feel more comfortable saving this space for the right things at the right time. I know when I need to sit a few out. I haven't decided to give up dancing. If you don't see me sharing the music of my soul here, I might just be dancing in my kitchen with my kids over at Acute Verbal Sabbatical.



  1. I love that you are exploring all of this. I am looking forward to watching all this work grow!

  2. I've subscribed to both of your blogs so whatever works for you when you're ready, I'll be reading.

  3. Even if you can’t enroll for expensive salsa classes due the sheer lack of money,you can still learn salsa dance and become a master in the art form. Get in touch with instantly and get to know how to start learning salsa at home by getting hold of Louis Van Amstel`a salsa videos.

  4. Babe, you write - they will come. I will follow you anywhere. I loved this analogy because I haven't been able to comment or read as much as I'd like recently. It has to be on terms. I learned years ago that if I every felt like "I HAVE to write on my blog today" it was a sign that I should take a break. Its for when I FEEL like it, no "shoulds" allowed.

    Love you!

  5. You have an instant follower.

  6. Change is a good thing. (Madison)
