Unintentionally, I took another break from My Bit of Happiness. Why?
It has been less enjoyable to continuously blog about what makes me happy. Instead I have been experiencing things without having to talk or think about them. I am content. So my apologies for not updating, but my heart has simply not been in it.
Sometimes, I think it is important to just live without thinking about it or focusing on it. Those may be the moments we will remember the most.
I’ve also been thinking about beginning a completely new blogging project for a fresh start–but it is still in the works. In the meantime, check out this website that I have just started up again.

To be honest, I started this blog for a class assignment, and I have learned in my class that I really enjoy blogging. This blog became, for me, more than a “duty” or a “grade”. It was a breather from work, from stress, and it really did hone my vision to focus on “the little things.” Words cannot explain how rough and stressful this semester has been (see this post below to get just an idea of what I’ve been up to,) and this blog actually became “My Bit of Happiness.” I loved posting, getting feedback on posts (still do *hint hint*), and enjoyed spending time finding other interesting blogs to read, too.
However, lately, I’ve been forcing myself to find something to write about, and updating my blog has become more of an item on my to-do list than something that I’ve been enjoying.
Natalia at A Side of Simple put it best when she said “And it’s times like that when you need to take a little breather.” I completely agree, Natalia.
So, for now, I am going to focus on surviving the rest of my semester, and then on enjoying my senior week festivities and celebrating becoming a college graduate. I’m not leaving, I promise. In fact, post-graduation I plan on not only keeping this blog up,but expanding it, and maybe even re-designing and refurbishing it. My future is unknown…I’m leaving my college in Newport, RI and I’m not quite sure where I’m living or what I’ll be doing, but I do know my life is going to take a different direction, and it’s time to sit back and enjoy the ride for a bit. It may be only a week, it may be a few months, but keep on checking back, because I’ll return. Be excited :)
