Hey guys! This is totally not going to be a typical blog post for a few reasons, 1.) I suck at being a food blogger and I didn't take my camera anywhere with me this weekend, 2.) There have been a few life changing and stressful situations going on around me lately that have really made me stop and think about what is important and 3.) I want to write about something besides food today. I hope you guys don't mind if I just let a few of my thoughts spill out on this blog today. There is such a fine line for me between what is appropriate to share on this blog and what I need to keep private for the sake of protecting the people I love. There are quite a few "real life" friends and family who read my blog and I always have them in the back of my mind when I am posting. I would hate to hurt their feelings or create an awkward situation with something that I share with the blog world. I am sure there are many bloggers out there who feel the same way. I have been a very secretive and private person my entire life so when I started blogging, it felt awesome to be able to write about things that I wouldn't necessarily talk about. I started to rely on blogging as an outlet, with no regard for the fact that there are people out there reading these words. In the past couple of weeks, I have really just been beat down by life. A few major situations have completely overwhelmed me and I am just a mess. There have been so many times that I have sat down at my computer and started typing out all of the thoughts racing through my mind in this dark time but then I start to think about the repercussions of actually publishing what I have written and I slowly hit delete and watch my words disappear. You may have noticed (or not) that my blog posts have been a little lackluster and boring lately and that is simply because I am trying to write things that sound upbeat and intresting while not really caring about the subject I am discussing. How can I write about a delicious recipe or a great run when in my heart I am trying to figure out how to pick up the pieces of my life? It is not an easy thing to do. Over the weekend, I had a chance to think about stuff and make some decisions that should help my life get back on track. I am not sure if they are going to work but at least I have some hope now that things will work out eventually. I am not trying to foster sympathy or whine about life, I simply wanted you guys to know that my blog is sucking right now for a reason. I am absolutely positive that I will be back to happy go lucky blogging in the very near future but I am not going to pretend that everything is okay when it just isn't. Thanks guys for hearing me out and for hanging in there while I figure out how to handle the situations that life has thrown my way....I feel better already!
