Unplugging

Since I have developed this computer habit, I have 'met' so many wonderful people. I have been allowed into so many people's lives, been able to support and be supported by so many wonderful people. If I don't check my reader every couple of hours I start feeling like things are happening out there without me! So that's going to make this very difficult.

I need to unplug for a while. It won't be long because I know I won't be able to stay away for too many days. But there have been things in my life that have suffered so I need to take a break and get some other things done. Honestly, I need to know that I can do it for goodness sake! It's almost scary to think that the idea of not hopping online to read what everybody has been doing brings on something akin to a small anxiety attack. I don't like to feel like anything controls me that much.

Getting away from this for a little while should allow me to come back fresh and with a certain amount of perspective and balance. I've never been good with moderation so when I feel something starting to slip away from me - I like to step back and get myself in hand. That's what I plan on doing now.

I will miss all my regular reads, and hope I will be missed too. I posted an avatar today so now there will be a face to go with the name I am hoping you will remember.

Bye for now - here is a nice picture to keep the beauty going. Ciao~

Sometimes it's good to back off of something, no matter how much we love to do it.

Take the time and enjoy every moment! Have some fun and be free!

Girly-o, it sounds like a good move. As much as the internet has to offer, it can't replace real life experiences. I pretty much dropped off the face of the internet for a while because after not having access to it I realized how much I wasn't doing in the real world. It's tough to find a balance, but necessary. You certainly will be missed!

Enjoy your freedom! We'll be here when you get back:)

Take your time, I've had to take the odd break from all things internet occasionally myself.

But look forward to you coming back!

I really love the new picture of you! I know what this kind of addiction can do to a girl, so take all of the time you need and I'll be here when you get back.

I know the feeling! I should do the same thing, but I'm not as strong as you! Good luck! We'll still be here when you get back.
