Sandmonkey, There is no lost Battle
Sandmonkey wrote today, he is "having a serious case of apathy, writer's block, depression, annoyance, boredom"... " am pretty much fed up for the moment about how incredibly stupid everything is,… but for some reason it is not, and I just don't have the energy anymore. This sandmonkey is tired. He is tired of ranting, tired of explaining,” he added. This is incredibly understandable. Your brain is not a washing machine or a dish washer, you can turn it on and off when you want. These are very precious cells, if chemicals get scrambled, you know where you can end up. I always believed good communicators with the self are excellent communicators with the others. Get yourself sometime to communicate with yourself and get your blogging power back.
Everything is understandable and acceptable about your break except for one thing that I could not digest today while drinking my coffee and this really augurs bad. SM said “tired of fighting a lost battle. My energy is depleted, and I have been running on empty for a while now, and I am this close to giving up. I need some rest.”
If your energy is low then take a break and get some fresh air somewhere. As for the lost battle, in fact there is no lost battle Sandmonkey. There is always an honor for being in a battle whether you are on the right or wrong side. So many people end up their lives feeling empty-handed because they went through no battles in their lives. Life is a series of battles, not being in a corrupt crazy country with people who do not speak your language, people battle with a disease, disability, impossible existence for countless reasons, ...etc whether we survive them or not we win the honor of the battle which is so honorable. I do not want to grow old to tell everyone I lived selfishly happy. At least I want to be able to tell myself, I stood up for what I believe in.
Ok we all know that, you are a blogaholic, no one can beat on that. He said “This won't be a long rest though, because, let's face it, I am a blogaholic. But the truth is, I need to relax. I have been doing this without a break for 14 months straight and I am winded. It could be a day or a week, but chances are it won't be longer than that.” Do not make it long, the jungle cannot survive with the "Arab Sandmonkey". Do not make it long. I might be on a forced to go on a "Break" but unlike your reasons it will be because my windows is crashing....I am really pissed off. Oh and by the way "Curious George" is in trouble these days, he may be in need of your support Sandmonkey.
