To Blog or Not to Blog? Major Construction Needed

As the year comes to an end, I'm beginning to contemplate whether or not this blogging thing is really for me.  I know it sounds bad, but that's honestly how I feel.  I can't seem to get this thing right.  Some would say that there's no right or wrong way to blog, but really...there is.  I am always second guessing myself.  I can't seem to find a vision.  I feel like I don't have the drive I had when I first began.  Right about now, I feel like a little lost lamb. 
I'm in need of some serious direction!

The problem I think I'm having is that I have so much other stuff going on in my life that I don't have time to think.  I thought a 2-week vaca from my full-time job would be the perfect time for me to catch up on posting, but all I've done is gone back and forth on what I should write about.  It really shouldn't be this difficult, so I think I need  to take a little hiatus from blogging for awhile.  When I return to work next week, I will be inundated with parent conferences to get our 8th graders registered for high school.  That process takes up the entire month of January.  With 10-11 conferences scheduled each day, and then working after school with other students in need, my brain and body will thoroughly can I describe it...CRASHED!!  

I'll be too exhausted to do anything other than getting rest for the next day.  Its sad that I'm thinking this way now, but I'm only speaking from  experience.

Maybe sometime during this hiatus, I'll find the inspirational ease to write again.  Hopefully, my mind won't be so clustered and I'll be more relaxed to write.  Most people would probably say I should continue to write to release some stress, but right now this seems to be causing it.  Nothing major of course.  I'm not fully happy with my blog and need the time to put more focus into it. I have a lot to learn about blogging and know that I've made a few mistakes along the way.    I know I shouldn't be so hard on myself since I only began a few months ago.  Ironically, I just sat back and read over this post.  Made corrections and reread.  Let out a long sigh and I'm now feeling a sense of peace. 
So maybe writing can ease my stress; Go figure!

 As you reflect on your year of blogging, I hope each of you feel at peace with your writing and I wish you much success in 2015.  Until sometime in the near future...I'm officially... 

Thank you for your patience!

Have you ever lost your drive towards something you had a passion for?  How did you get your mojo back? What's your source of inspiration?  I would love to hear from you.
