Blogger’s Block, though brighter horizon I forecast

I just realized today I haven’t blogged for a few days now. It can happen, but when it’s a conscious decision, I am more at peace. Yet, since I had not decided to take a break from blogging, the realization hit me sort of hard.

Aha, is this blogger block? Yet, it’s not like I even sat down to blog and then couldn’t start typing. I just didn’t get that ‘zeal’ which pricks me to action. And so pals, mindful of the heat anyway, I am taking a blogging break. Don’t ask me how long it’ll last, it may be a few days or weeks. A lot on my plate now and seriously I just can’t wait for July 30 to go HOME.

In the meantime, some bright stuffs too. I mean such to cheer me up. Florah my massai heroine, probably sensed my whatever …, and did the above of my picture. She also put the following collage together:

And then, I got an awesome first official review of my last memoir from none other than Jill my blogging granny. I share it with you:

” The acknowledgements are stunning. You have covered so much material. Your description of the emotional abuse you suffered was shattering especially the part where it turned physical. I can’t begin to imagine how you remained in that relationship. Thank goodness for Jeff’s coaching program.
Your 36 points were most informative and I agree with you that when one is able to forgive, one is able to start the healing process.  No forgiveness – difficult to heal.
Marie, your book gave me so much to think about.
I admire you for your honesty.
I admire you for the courage shown in writing this important book.
I admire you for your directness.
I admire you for your ability to pass on your message which will help other women. You are a mental health advocate, a feminist as well as a speaker. I wonder how you manage to do so much my dear? I am proud of you Marie Abanga and I recommend your book with all my heart. may we all find the strength that you have shown”.
From the blogging grandma, Jill Sadowsky.

Dear gentle readers and followers, I’ll be back I promise, let me resource some before my big relocation home. Prepare your kindles for some free downloads coming soon by the way 🙂 Thank you very much for all 🙂

Thank you very much

  1. Beautiful post Marie. I especially love the quote up top with your picture… Hope to see you back soon ❤

  2. What a wonderful, wonderful review from blogging granny!!

    I love the collage you posted for us to enjoy as well! You really could be a model!

    It’s okay to take a break – I used to blog 7 days a week and now just once a week and it was bittersweet decision, but I needed to listen to how I was feeling and I no longer felt drawn to blog daily, you know?
    Then again, if I continued to feel that “spark” every day I couldn’t ignore it!!

    Go easy on yourself, be patient and compassionate with yourself as you make the transition back home. It’s a huge deal ,and I’m glad you’re tuning into your need for a breather.

    We will be here for you!!!! XOXOXOXOXO

  3. Marie, this is a lovely, honest post. I’m sorry I’ve been absent for so long. There’s a log going on with my family. And I haven’t updated my blog in ages either.

    Anyway, the collage of you is beautiful. And I love the feature picture with the quote.

    I hope we get a chance to chat before you leave for home.

    Enjoy the weekend. God bless you. 🙂

    1. Dear Timi, thanks for stopping by and leaving these sweet words. Hmm, break indeed – but inshort I’ll be doing a post on it today: Break over sort of hahaha 🙂
