The Sunshine Factor

where sunshine is a way of life

Time Out

Leave a comment


I’ve been a busy writer

up until now usually posting each day

Now a big deadline is looming

and lo and behold —

I can’t do it all


The conversation I had with myself:

“But people expect you to write every day”.

Not to worry, they can catch up with the Archives

“You might lose viewers and followers.”

Maybe they’d rather see good posts less often

than every day lukewarm posts

“But isn’t this like acknowledging defeat?”

No, it’s called taking care of myself

It’s acknowledging that I’m not Superwoman

If I don’t care of me and my Muse

then there isn’t much I can give others

“Oh, I see, maybe this is okay?”

Forget the maybes

this is a bonafide fact

there are some blogging rules better left for the perfectionists

and yes, it’s okay

“But won’t people forget you?”

No.  They know that they’re always number one in my heart

and they can write to me any time

and we can still be in touch

“But when will you start posting regularly again?”

You are still worrying, I see

I will let them know  that *maybe*

the second full week in November is the target date

“Oh, okay, but what should the readers do in the meantime?”

Consider reading and responding to the post

“Exciting New Project!” from October 15


With love,

Later, my dear readers ~~

I am an optimistic, positive person who is a seven year cancer survivor. Since that time I have learned that getting a cancer diagnosis does not always mean an automatic death sentence. I like to share my hope with others and continue to encourage them - no matter who they are or what they need encouragement for. I write poems, prayers, articles, and stories. Recently the premiere issue of my online magazine, launched. Thank you for visiting!
