Everyday NhanSense – Day 2

Everyday NhanSense: Each day, I will blog about something that comes to mind. My goal is to practice writing about my hobbies, my interests, my opinions and so forth.

Day 2’s Topic: Believing with faith in your heart.
——————————————————————————————————————————————–
As it seems like I run out of resources and options in my current situation, I feel compelled to turn toward that one particular “F” word to help remedy some of my pain and worries.

Faith.

I am not a religious person by any means. I do not go to church or anything like that, so I don’t want to come off as preachy and in your face like a Bible salesman knocking on your door. However, these past few years have taught me to understand the notion of God and why believing in a higher power is both helpful and even therapeutic, especially when things appear bleaker each day for me.

Without faith, I would have slipped into an even darker place that I am all too familiar with … a place where I would never want anyone else to experience willingly. And let me tell you – it is all too easy to succumb to that particular darkness. It sneaks up to you when you are feeling down in the dumps, and then it blankets you in its ebony veil until traces of light start to fade away and disappear.

You become lulled into a sense of ease, but this is a false feeling. It’s not that your troubles are slipping away, because the rest of the world is going move on regardless, but instead it’s more like you are growing numb to both the good and the bad in your life.

In a sense, you transform into an empty husk wrapped tightly by scary thoughts, tucked away until someone or something shines some glimmer of hope your direction to awaken you, finally, from your deep stupor that will in fact consume you.

Everyday NhanSense – Day 1

Day 1’s Topic: Another beginning.
——————————————————————————————————————————————–

Hello again, everyone.

Long time no see. Well, about 43 days or so to be exact. But who’s counting? To be blunt, I was starting to miss blogging each day. Don’t mind the blog’s look for now. I am still fiddling with everything, and I hope to get all the appearance and post formats set in stone. I was content with the previous appearance, but something different now and then is healthy for one’s sanity. It keeps things from going stagnant … hence the name change to “Everyday NhanSense” versus “Daily NhanSense.”

This blog has been my personal, online sanctuary of sorts. I started this blog years ago to help me find solace in the face of everyday life. Whether it was through rough patches from bouts with personal doubt or embracing happier moments that sprung up here and there, this blog acted as the metaphorical glue to bind everything together.

At the risk of sounding melodramatic, without this blog, I don’t even know where my mental state would be as I sit down to type these words out. As I often tell others, this blog acts as my “pulse” to remind people that I am still in fact alive. Going on hiatus for such a long time proved challenging after a while.

I had never taken such a long break from blogging on this site before, considering that the longest gap of inactivity I can recall was maybe a few days tops but not more than a whole month. It was like I was neglecting something that had been paramount to my day-to-day operations.

(Hopefully) Temporary Hiatus


Hi everyone.

I am just letting all of you, my precious blog readers, know that I am not abandoning this blog or anything. It’s just that right now I have to prioritize real life over everything else.

Nonetheless, I hope to get back into the blogging swing of things in due time. Again, real life comes first. Serious times call for serious measures.

Bye bye for now, but not forever. :P
