Travel The World

When Life Has Other Plans…

As usual, it’s humbling to be reminded that none of us control the universe. Sometimes things happen that halt us, choking, in our tracks. One of the worst things about blogging is that it shows exactly where and when we falter and fall.

A family crisis struck last week and it’s going to take me a while to recover from.

In the meantime, let me show you the world through some other writers and photographers who roam across the globe.

I hope you’ll wait for me.

Because I will be back.

    I was just thinking about you this morning, missing your updates.

    Take care of you and your family. We’ll all still be here.

      Thank you. I remember that personal post on your site and think: well, if you two managed to pull through that then I will come through this eventually too.

    We’ll still be here. Hope you are ok and that this time produces good things, fixes things or people that are broken.

    Much love. xx

    I wrote about something similar to this a couple of years ago. In fact, I took quite a few months off during which I didn’t care at all about anything except taking care of what needed to be done. Don’t worry–take all the time you feel that you need, and we will all be waiting for your return when you are ready.

      Thank you.

      I wish I could have read that post – but I completely understand your reasons for removing it.

    So sorry. I hope you’re okay, and that time heals the problems. Of course we will be waiting.

      Thank you – and thank you for coming back!

    So sorry…I’m somehow going through something too (medical) with a close friend. I’m a MD also and these things get you thinking a lot more than usual… It’s quite tough, confusing, frustrating and sad. You take your time to do whatever you need, recover up, rest, take it all out, be with your people. We’ll be here as well. I’ll do the same :(

      Wise words – and true ones.

      Thank you for your support – I am sorry to hear about your news and hope that things are going as well as they can. I hope they are getting better but, of course, understand that that isn’t always possible.Take care – and thank you for your message.

    I’m very sorry to hear that, Abi. I hope everyone can recover as quickly and painlessly as possible.

    I’ll definitely be waiting for your return! :)
