Ola! Well, a two week election break turned into a month unexpectedly! I have been on leave, which was well deserving and I knew I will still keep up here but little did I know. Before my leave, I was a train wreck! Literally! I needed to hide somewhere and just be, until I was better. Ever felt like you are uninspired to do anything? Like you just want to be left alone, sleep throughout and do nothing? That was me.

Honestly, from deep down, I needed that break. It reached a point where my focus was lost such that I couldn’t think straight nor make proper decision. All that was a result of working a lot without a proper break and it took a huge toll on me. Also, emotionally I was drained which drove me into solitude and wasn’t easy to deal with but thankfully I was home around family and their presence helped me avoid that, atleast most of the time. Sometimes you have to allow yourself to break down, we’ll are humans. The body and mind needs a break too without which they’ll shut down, like mine did hence the hiatus. Remember, if you are not tired, then you are not doing it right so they say.

During that period, I did a lot of reflecting, analyzing and basically self-discovery process. I looked back at how far I have come, where I am at and where I’m headed and I was proud of myself. That gave me the strength to spring back and continue with this journey called life, one step at a time. I have emerged a better person now, more focused and energized and I hope all that will be evident here from now forth.

Thank you for still being here and for your patience. I promise to make it worth the while. Cheers! Xo.
