So it's interesting, I haven't posted in who knows how long, and I had forgotten that I hadn't even gotten around to it until Lyn sent me a comment today. I greatly appreciate her remembering me and coming by to check in on me. Which is something noone else has done. It's not that I went MIA to see who would notice... I went MIA because I continue to be a fatass and gorge myself with stupid foods that contain little to no nutritional value. That's why I've been MIA.
This place is a wonderful community if you're doing well, and pretty good still, even if you publicly struggle, but it's easy to be forgotten about if you drop off the blog world for a little while. I know I am guilty of it too, not checking in on people in my google reader that have been missing for a little while... but those people are probably the ones who need the encouragement the most. Those are the ones who need to feel a team of people behind them, pushing them up out of the black hole. They're the ones who need to feel supported & need to feel like others believe they can actually succeed.
Because right now, I don't. And I don't even care.
