I Was Missing... But Now I'm Found

Clear the mind, find a happy place, take a moment and calm the storm.
Ommmmmmmmmmmmmmmm...
Hey there.  I went on a self imposed hiatus for the past 3 weeks or so.  I needed time to clear my mind, body, and soul.  I felt that I was under immense pressure and I needed to just step away from it all for a bit to refocus and regroup myself.  This is the main reason why I have avoided almost all Emails and social media posts.  I haven't logged into Facebook for so long that I'm sure I must have like a 100 notifications by now.  It's tough having to step away from social media when you are considered to be an online presence.  I know that my ratings have suffered because of it, but I feel that I needed to be gone for a bit in order to survive for the long run.  I've avoided posting reviews and giveaways and I'm sure that some of those opportunities are no longer available.  I just felt that I wasn't ready to drive right into my work again.

Life has been a bit hectic lately.  Aside from the reviewing, my personal life has taken me to a fork in the road.  I feel like I need to deviate from the norm and venture on a new path.  After discussing with the wife, I think it will be best to venture off and take on this new endeavor.  I know it sounds a bit cryptic now, but if all goes well, you'll hear details soon.  Also, it's almost as if the universe is filling my life with pressures and obstacles to deter my resolve.  I want to move forward, I want to move ahead, and yet... road block after road block continues to obstruct my path. Again... I know it sounds cryptic... but I hope to get through this and share details soon.  

So I'll take this rare moment of clarity to give my sincere apologies to anyone that may have felt slighted by me, ignored by me, or insulted by my silence.  I mean no harm and simply decided to take care of myself before taking care of anything else.  Depressed work is crappy work and I would feel like I'm cheating my partners for turning in crap.  That's not me.  That's not Metallman.  I feel like I'm nearing the end of my self imposed "rehab" and I should be back to my normal self soon.  Thanks for sticking with me, friends.  I love you all and greatly appreciate it.  Later!
