The real truth behind my absence

So I have been  absent for some time a long time; there has also been many failed attempts to rejuvenate this blog. I put up sparing posts giving half baked lies about why I haven't been active and also promising to start active blogging.

Well truth is all those times, I was not in a good place. I was in a terrible, dark, lonely and cold tunnel. I was not myself. How could I feign happiness and write in a happy tone when the inside of me was emotionless? Empty? Sad?

I didn't know what to do with this blog, as I couldn't bring myself to write in a 'fake happy' voice. I contemplated closing it down, and forgetting about the blogging world. Or maybe just start a new blog with a new identity. At the end, I just let this blog be. Amassing spam views. Thousands of them.

And thank God I didn't close it down. Now I am at a better place, where my smiles have meanings, where I look forward to the next day, where I hope, and dream and laugh and play. And I have my blog to run back to.

If you have been reading this blog, you may know that I moved to the US recently (about 2 years ago), and was staying with DH and adjusting to my new life as an African Immigrant living in the US. This blog was borne mainly out of boredom, and the desire to share the culture shocks I experienced to others.

Well things have turned around completely, I am now living and working in Ghana, and separated. I will not go into details about the whys, whens, hows, etc of everything.

I went through some major life challenges at a very young age, I experienced failure, rejection, depression, mocks and everything that comes with marriage failure.

Through it all I have come out a better person.

I am wiser, stronger and more focused. My strength has been tested, until I almost bent. Then things took a 360 turn. I am no where near where I want to be, but everyday is a progress.

I will continue to blog about my experiences back in Ghana and share my views on issues with you.

That Africanchic is back!
