I've been away too long
As the title says, I’ve been away from this little blog and from the Shawn community for far too long. I had a really tragic family event take place in May that turned my life upside down and drug me down to a really dark place. I’m not sure if any of you have ever dealt with depression but that’s what I was sucked into, not wanting to get out of bed in the morning and then, when I was finally out of bed, feeling guilty at even the thought of having fun when so many of my family members around me were in tatters. That caused me to distance myself from things that made me happy (this blog being one of them) because that guilty feeling, however silly it may seem, was really weighing heavily on me.
Some time has passed and I’m coming around emotionally and the first thing I wanted to do was log back on and celebrate Shawn’s successes with you all and especially, especially, *especially* write for you. I think writing will help me continue to heal now that I’m in the right headspace to even start. Even more than that, I miss the kind souls that I met here and who were sweet enough to chat with me when they didn’t even know that they were carrying me through the beginning of a tough time (this means you : @sippingchai @brittanyzelazno @cassmoreiraxo & @anothermendesfangirl )
So I suppose I say all of this to say that I’m sorry for falling off a cliff around here, I hope you’ll have me back, and I’m excited to continue on with what I’ve started around here.
I’ve still got requests sitting in my inbox that have gone unfulfilled far too long. I’ll start hammering those out as I can. I also have a lot of other ideas I can’t wait to share as well so you’ll have content coming from me to you soon. In the meantime, my inbox is open and I would love to hear from you! We can have some Shawn talk or just life talk - you choose. :)
