So… It’s been a few weeks since I last posted here. The longer I wait to write, the harder it seems to get. I want to come on and say something, but I just genuinely don’t know what to say. For a few weeks the idea of coming here and posting about products seemed odd and Now is as good of a time as any to let you know what’s going on and to get back to chatting to you here.
At the beginning of this year, I made a commitment to myself that I would take blogging more seriously. I want to create more content, and focus a lot of my creative energy to this platform. The year started out pretty good. I was posting consistently on both my blog and instagram, trying lots of new products and exploring. But these past few weeks I’ve let that go by the wayside.
If you follow me on instagram, you may have seen that I had surgery last Thursday. It was a minor surgery, but as it was approaching I focused all my energy on thinking about that. I spent my time preparing to take time off work, go for walks and enjoy the weather while I could. I worried a lot about what I would eat and how I would do everyday things during recovery. Being an over-thinker, I guess that makes sense. But I didn’t take the time to do the little things that make me happy – trying new makeup looks, exploring with colour, photography. Now that I’m in recovery and on the way uphill, I want to put my energy back to these things. I get so much joy and fulfillment out of these creative things.
Over the past few days, I have had a lot of time to think. I’m off work for a little while and am honestly doing so much better than I ever expected I would be this soon after surgery. I have lots of fresh ideas and I am feeling reenergized. I’m excited to be back to my blog!
