Six years of daily writing, meeting deadlines, taking conference calls and building this blog into what it has become has been such fun but honestly, sometimes exhausting work. Sometimes I find myself struggling under the weight. Sometimes I need a break.
It’s easier said than done. I’ll admit, sometimes it’s hard for me to give up control. I don’t use many guest writers so the pressure producing all of the content to the best of my ability, totally falls on me and that’s by my own choice. It can be rough sometimes finding a work/life balance, I’ll be honest.
Many of my friends have encouraged me through the years to just take a vacation. Take a week off and know that my readers will be there for me when I return. I’ve been too scared to do it before. But this week I am taking the whole week off — possibly for the first time on this blog. I will be in the Florida Keys with my husband and my in-laws, having a wonderful family vacation and involving myself in nothing that has to do with blogging or social media or hair or makeup. I need a break, so I’m taking a break. I hope you understand, and return next week for more fresh posts on makeup, hair, beauty, life and culture on Afrobella.com!
Please feel free to read my posts over at Glam.com, and if you want to vacation vicariously with me you can follow me on Instagram and Twitter for details on where I’m at, what I’m eating, how much fun I’m having and how sunny it is!
