It’s been a while. One year to be exact. But here I am. I’m back to blogging. In the past year, I’ve stayed away from social media and blogging but contrary to many people not out of choice. I’ve been the victim of my own mind, unable to pursue the excitement I had inside about blogging. I’ve shut it down as I was afraid this wasn’t what I was supposed to be doing with my time. But now I’ve learnt there’s no right or wrong about things that make you happy.
In the last year, I struggled with confidence, knowing how to prioritize the things I love, learning to say no and simply doing more of what I like. About this time last year, I thought I had it all figured out. I had the perfect job, was doing all the activities I loved, an amazing boyfriend, I was fit and eating healthy and it was all simply great. But soon started crumbling down. I still can pinpoint how or when but I know I pushed my limits and stopped myself for fitting for my best interests.
Last week, as I was walking home and listening to one of my favourite podcasts, “What we said” (honestly, so funny and inspirational. I thoroughly recommend it if you are looking for something light, genuine advice and a good laugh.), the hosts were talking about how you should just do the things you want to. And I’ve been having this little curiosity bug about blogging for so long.
I first started a blog back in 2011, when I was only 15, and blogging was barely a thing! Now I’m taking over these fears and distractions to listen to the little excitement bug I’ve been ignoring for over a year.
So I’m back to blogging and exploring this curiosity I’ve had for years. Hopefully this time I stick to it. It is quite interesting to me in which ways life gets in the way and the way I’ve been choosing to prioritize. I actually, tend to prioritize the things I feel I should do rather than what I want to do. Which is CRAZY!
I have so many blogs and content planned already (and even a post about how I struggle with too much planning so look out for that!) I’m really excited about where I am right now, and where I’ll be.
