These three “M” words won’t mean much to most, but to me, they are perfectly entwined. For better or worse.
A few people have mentioned recently that I hadn’t done a blog post in a while. And they are right in a way. I haven’t done a public blog post in over a month. But, I have been writing. I have a few posts drafted and edited, ready to go when the time is right. I did, however want to write something to check in, in a way. With myself more than anything.
Mischance – An old-timey word for bad luck. Bad luck is what started this blogging journey. When my brother was in his work accident, I needed this outlet so badly. And as his recovery has progressed, I realized it’s no loner my story to tell. My perspective at this stage is a sort of a moot point. He has his voice and can post his updates as he sees fit. That may be hard for some, family especially, whereas he’s very stingy with his information, but that’s his choice.
One of the main reasons I haven’t been posting is because I’ve been having a lot of migraines lately. I had never had a headache in my entire life, until about a year and a half ago. Except a hangover headache. Had plenty of them. Stress does weird things to a person’s body, and mine apparently deals with stress in this form. I’ve lived a fairly stress free life, which I am incredibly grateful for. But, I think it’s catching up with me now. I’ve been through a few different types of medicine, and recently switched it again, and so far so good. Hence, this blog post.
It has been 6 months since I started this blog. It was a milestone I wasn’t sure I’d see. Even though I had made a couple of posts at the beginning about my motivation and wanting to see this through. There is always a little doubt. Can I do it? Do people want to read it? Does it matter if they do or don’t? I can do it. I have no doubt of that. My self-confidence shakes a little when it comes to the last two questions. I guess we’ll see how this goes along. Maybe I will answer them at my 1 year milestone.
