Lessons learned and taking a break

A lot of lessons have been learned over the past couple of days 
I am someone who lives their life on impulse
Everyday I do things without thinking them through
And I do it for instant gratification 
I think I need to slow down a bit 
I need to breathe
And take a big step back
And look at my life 
I've made a commitment to go to a meeting tomorrow
And I'm also handing my meds over to a family member 
For the time being
Just until I can trust myself again

So yes 
I am going to take a little break from my blog and the Internet
I need to focus on my real life
And my real life relationships 
I think I've had my head stuck in a virtual world 
Putting pressure on myself to write everyday
I'm not sure how long I will be gone 
Maybe days 
Maybe weeks 
But one thing is for sure 
I will be back 
At some stage 
I just need to get my ducks in a row 
And sort out what is keeping me stuck
If you are wondering about Marla
She is ok
We have been emailing back and forth. 
And are going to put this incident behind us 

So I will see you in a little while
Please take care of you
And each other 
I will see you on the flip side....


  1. We will be waiting. Just take good care of yourself, you deserve no less.


    1. Thanks Hun
      I appreciate it

      Take care of you
      You are so precious x

  2. That's a real shame for me as I've just recently found your blog and it was helping me a lot. I'm not part of any community - just someone reaching out. However I do understand that you need to step back a bit after the last few days. So I'll be looking out for your return.

    1. I'm very sorry about that
      But please do check in a few days
      Because I'm hoping to be back soon
      I just really need to focus on my real life right now
      As if I am honest
      It is in a bit of a mess

      I will be back though
      That's a promise x

  3. Going to miss you Rubs, but will be waiting for you on the other side on your return. Hopefully you can get yourself sorted and refreshed snd come back feeling so much better. You're in my thoughts and prayers. Stay strong. Love and hugs xxx

  4. Thank Hun
    I appreciate it
    And il miss you too
    I will be back though
    Soon enough x

  5. Love you Ruby. I'm only an email away if you need.


    1. I know Hun
      And thank you
      I won't be a stranger x

  6. Will miss your posts, but taking care of yourself should come first. The internet makes it so easy to lose track of real life. Feel free to email if you need someone to chat with. Also I think you said you have an iphone? iphone to iphone messaging is free..........

  7. Remember that human interaction is messy. Always, inherently. A well-meaning word might hit a raw spot. A sincere but strong reply can work it's way into another raw spot. An attempt at constructive criticism may feel like an attack, or an attack can be used to consider whether there is a valid point underneath the malice. You can control what words you use, but not always how other people will feel when they hear them.

    It's ok that you can't make everyone happy, and sometimes spats develop that are beyond your control.

    Do what you need to do to take care of yourself. We'll be here when you come back.

  8. Dear Ruby, I am so proud of you for doing what is best for you and your loved ones. I have been gone for so long that I'm lost in blogger world, but I will catch up with your blog and maybe one day we can chat. I miss your beautiful face.
    XOXO Katie


Thank you for leaving some love x
