An Unintentional Sabbatical
It honestly caught me off guard that David was thinking a lot of the same things I had been thinking about. I think God nudged him to ask me those questions, because I wasn't willing to ask them to myself in complete honestly.
Maybe we all come to a sort-of cross-roads when we have spaces like this. How do we know we should keep on writing, and creating and sharing.. and how do we know when we gave it our best and it's time to hang up our hats and move on? They say it takes years for well known blogs who are able to make money to take off. I've given it years. And at what expense?
So I guess I'm welcoming this unintentional sabbatical. I'm stepping away for a few days to pray and ponder and re-evaluate.. without my added perfectionism of i-have-to-post-something-awesome-every day for you guys.
I've never been one to ask God for a bold clear sign. But in this situation I am. I've given him a timeline. I've given him a.. "if this happens by this date then I'll know I should keep this up".. and if it doesn't, then I'll wave my white flag.
