I have been such a terrible blogger lately. Ever since I’ve returned from my holiday in California things have been such a struggle and I have been finding it really hard to keep up with regular blogging. My writing has been suffering a lot because of brain fog and quite often it takes me 3 hours (even longer) just to write a paragraph. It’s frustrating and exhausting.
I’m finding the cognitive side of CFS more challenging this year. My brain just isn’t functioning like it used to. Writing can deplete me of all my mental energy quite quickly and I need to be very careful that it doesn’t prevent me from doing other things that nourish my soul, which is also why my posting can be very sporadic at times.
With that said, I am slowly trying to get back into this blogging thing. I need to write. I have to keep pushing through. I have to keep going.
So thank you, dear readers, for sticking around and being patient. Thank you for encouraging me to keep going when I’ve wanted to give up on blogging. Thank you for believing in me and this blog and what it can be. I have big plans for this blog and I know that God does too. I’m glad there are so many people who can see its potential.
To make up for the lack of posts lately, I give you the 10 most popular posts of 2013:

Because chronic illness is hard. Really, really hard. It just isn’t fair and it’s okay to admit so every now and then.
That moment when chronic pain makes you depressed and all you want to do is stay in bed, curl up in a ball and be like: “YEAH, WHATEVER!” So. Over. It.
|Prednisolone moon face, I do not miss you.|
Some sunshine and happiness for a change. See! It’s not all doom and gloom around here.
Trying to get things done without any energy is like trying to start a car without any gas; it just doesn’t work. UGH.
You guys just love my angsty rants with colourful language. Such a drama queen, I am.
From the creative archives…
A wickedly rich chocolate cake.
My favourite spring mani to date. Although, I’ll admit, my grass looks much more like mangled seaweed.
#3. A creative misadventure: The freehand zebra print that looks more like uncoordinated zig zags manicure.
It’s popular because it is so very bad.
You guys also enjoy my cake disasters.
Thickers + embossing = love.
