Well, I’ve been MIA here on the blog. The dreaded colonoscopy happened. The recovery has been rough pain-wise (it seemed to have triggered a pain flare-up) and I’ve been so exhausted from it all. The good news is that I received good news (no endometriosis found!), so I feel very thankful for that. 🙂

Other than that, life stresses have distracted me from writing regularly. I can’t believe it’s been a week since I wrote a post. Not how I wanted this week to go, but every time I thought about writing, I wanted to, yet I didn’t. I know that as an aspiring writer, that’s not a very good thing. If I stop, I might not be able to get back on the horse again.

Thank you to each and every one of you who’s decided to follow my blog and read, like, and comment on my work. It truly means the world to me! I love to write.

Writing helps me to navigate life’s struggles, helps me to learn and grow, helps me to think more clearly, and, most of all… it helps me to feel better throughout my depression.

*Insert happy/celebratory things here!*

Also, the photo is a little bit inaccurate — I’m not eating cake. But how nice would that be?

So, as I opened WordPress up on Monday, I noticed something extra special: my blog had been nominated for The Versatile Blogger Award! Yay! 🙂 I apologize for the slight delay in this post, I wanted to post it sooner.

Thank you so much to the nominator, Anita, over at Discovering Your Happiness – check out her blog, it’s awesome!

I feel so grateful and humbled to have been thought about for something like this, especially being a fairly new blogger (3 months.)
