I’m in a rut right now, there’s no two ways about it. For a few weeks, my beginning of the year positive outlook seems to have been slowly slipping away and instead I’m feeling pretty low, demotivated and all round crap. I’ve got a lot of stuff working its way around my head right now, and I feel like I’m on the brink of some pretty major life decisions that I’m not entirely sure I have the courage to make. This has leant itself to a period of semi-silence on my blog that I’m hoping is going to be broken by this post. See, I had my Easter break and I was feeling a bit better, but apparently taking a few days off gave my body the thumbs up to get sick (still fuming I had no say in this) and then I ended up signed off work for a week, stuck in bed with the energy to do nothing but watch Sex and the City on repeat. I honestly didn’t even pick up my book I felt that bad, so there’s been no new content from me for a little while.
I’d like to say that I have come out the other side feeling much better and now I’m feeling super motivated and inspired but if I’m honest, it’s a week later and I’m still sick. My doctor’s note ran out so I’m back to work and struggling to get through the days before I come home and collapse on the sofa, and my antibiotics have me feeling like some sort of human sub-species in that I resemble a human from the outside but my insides are in turmoil and my brain feels like its in the blender.
I’m sorry, this isn’t the most uplifting post is it?
What I’m trying to say is, I’ve been in no position to blog the past week or so however I’m determined to turn it around and get my mojo back whether my brain remains in the blender or not. 2018 got off to the best start imaginable and I’m not going to let a few (albeit major) factors in my life ruin it for me. From next week I want to be back posting on here three times a week, and continuing to post on my Youtube channel three times a week also – I am nothing if not consistent after all.
In terms of the content I create on here, you may again see this space undergo some changes. I began my blog at the tender age of 22 and this year I turned 26. It’s been here throughout some major life changes and I’ve documented a lot in its pixel pages over the years, however I think now is the time for the blog to mature with its owner. While I’m loving the fashion I wore when I was 22 again and the more chilled out approach to outfit posts, I do want to mature my content a little too. I’ll still write about my ridiculous obsession with slogan tees and faux leather joggers, but I also perhaps want to write more think pieces, more personal pieces and even throw in some creative writing.
I don’t know, we’ll see what happens, but either way I hope you guys stick around for the ride!
