I’ve sat down at least 50 times to try and write a new About page for this blog over the past few months. I’ve taken days off work, gone on solo retreats to the mountains, had brainstorm sessions with my friends, and spent countless Saturday mornings trying to figure out what to tell you and myself what JALO is “About.” My conclusion after all that? I don’t have an answer.
JALO started as a journal of sorts in 2011 while I was unhappy at a job, turned into mostly a food blog with the occasional travel or personal post, and has become something that just isn’t working for me right now. I’m smack dead in the middle of a new season of change and I’m not feeling great about the resistance I have toward this space. My gut (maybe with a nudge from my therapist) is telling me to take a break from this blog to make space for something new to come in. I AM feeling great about this.
So, I’m taking a break from JALO for at least 3 months to allow something new to grow. Meanwhile, I’m keeping the blog live so we can continue to enjoy what is already here.
I may come back to write, and I may not. I don’t know what’s next. I may feel the need to post a Recovery Cafe recipe every now and then, and I may not. I may find my About, I may not. We’ll see! For now, I’m just trying to go with the flow.
Thank you so much for your support over the past five-plus years. It’s been a lot of fun to share some of what I see with you! I have no doubt something else will grow out of this space for us to enjoy.
Thank you, also, for understanding this decision to take a break. I feel like a teenager writing a note to my boyfriend.
TAKE GOOD CARE!
