Hi guys, long time eh!? I really don’t know where to begin in all honesty, what happened to the blogging life? Well, lots of things really. I thought this past year hadn’t really had that much affect on me, it was only until this year just recently that I took a step back and looked back in fact, on my life – bit deep for a Tuesday morning but go with me. Life, home schooling, being in lockdown, feeling anxious, feeling out of control and lots of time spent in my own head left me not really knowing who I was or what my purpose was. I think I just summed it up, I felt lost. Blogging has not been my main focus at all, I was uninspired, unmotivated to share anything and just couldn’t be arsed in all fairness.
The children and getting through lockdown life swallowed me up completely. Not in a depressed, I don’t want to get dressed or out of bed way, just other things have to take priority kinda way and that included my health. I have not taken care of myself for quite some time, not gonna lie I have never drank so much alcohol so frequently in all my life. My eating habits have been questionable, going from restricting every food under the sun in order to “sort my tummy out” to binging my way through 50 billion packets of Kettle Crisps. I’ve consistently worked out as that is just part of my lifestyle and I couldn’t imagine not working out as it really does make me feel great. But, I guess just doing what I had to do to get through. We’ve all had our struggles I know, however, there have been some really fantastic times that I will treasure forever.
Where am I now? Life finally feels like it is starting to thaw out again and seeing people, talking to other humans is just lovely. I had forgotten how much I used to love blogging and sharing my thoughts etc. I’ve certainly grown since I started this blog in 2016 (I think?), my children are now 9 and 7 years old for starters. Baby/toddler days are firmly behind me and I don’t really have an interest in most things I blogged about before. I had every intention of shutting my website down and scrapping it all – including Instagram – I just have no desire to share every aspect of my life, it’s boring and who really wants to see it. Plus, there are so many weirdos out there and also people who like to spy just to keep tabs on what you are up to, yet don’t want to support you or be a part of your life but are quite happy to check in daily to see photos of your life, children and business ventures!
Anyway, the whole point of this post wasn’t to rant about nobodies who I do not have time for any more. I wanted to check in with you lovely people and see how you are all doing. I’m not going to stop blogging but I am going to take my blog in a different direction, post what I would like to read about not what I think I should be posting, if that makes sense? I’m interested in interiors, home & garden renovations, beauty, fashion, fitness, self development, books, the law of attraction and lots of other things. So that is what I plan on writing about, I really hope you stick around for the foreseeable as I would love to hear your thoughts too.
If this past year has taught me anything, it is this:-
- What other people are doing is none of my business
- What other people think about me, is none of my business
- I will not give one single crap what anyone thinks of me
- People will talk about me and judge me no matter what I do
- You do you
You only get one life, one life! Why waste it on things that drag you down, who cares what others think of you, do what makes your heart so happy.
