Dear, guys – welcome back to Letters From Liz.
First off, I want to start off by apologizing for not finishing Blogust this year. I mean, I don’t think anyone really noticed, but I did, and the writer’s side of me has been disappointed lately at the lack of writing I’ve been doing on here, in my free time, and creatively. It’s been… a weird couple of weeks for me.
I returned back to work and although things aren’t stressful, the upkeep and activity needed takes a toll on my body. Because of that, I’ve been experiencing a level of fatigue that, well, has been different to what I usually go through, and it’s causing me to not want to do anything but rest my body and my mind.
I’ve also been really busy getting prepared for bariatrics surgery in a couple of months. When I’m not at work, I’m pretty much taking every test needed to be cleared for surgery, which is a lot at times. I know everything will be fine in the long run, but the process to get there is… a lot to process in the first time.
I also have been spending a lot of time online in the kpop community and talking to my friends on the platform. My best friend, Ro, has been writing their own universe and to be quite honest, being in their universe has been really hard to be in my own, which is completely fine! Haha, their writing universe is so fascinating and interesting and I enjoy being so invested in it and like wow, they are a hell of a writer. But yeah, I just been wanting to spend my time with my friends whenever I can because they are some of the few reasons why my days are so much better.
I’m in a really good place, despite me having moments when I’m not; it’s just the human in me. But, I still haven’t been motivated to write, and I don’t know why it’s taking me this long to write something. Am I just in a funk? Am I just too busy? Am I falling out of love with writing?
Stop, Liz. That’s not the case.
The truth of the matter is, I’ve been… feeling inspiration through my eyes, as in I’ve been taking pictures of places and things that have been inspirational to me. Is that weird, stopping in the middle of the sidewalk to take a picture of literally anything and find it inspirational?
I think I’m just… taking life as it comes. I feel like I need to capture moments more than anything these days. I feel like time is such a precious thing, and I’m afraid of not being able to see certain things in my life, in certain moments, at certain times. Is that weird? I feel like I may be blabbering. Something about being outside makes me feel… alive, and I just always wanna capture it on my phone.
I really do hope that this “funk” I am in with my writing goes away soon, because I really do miss being on the blog, just writing things for you guys, for the blog, and most importantly – for myself.
Thanks again for hanging around.
