Well it’s surely been a hot minute since my last post. I really missed blogging and not posting for so long has felt very weird. It wasn’t my intention to stay away for so long, however, sometimes life gets in the way and it is the best option to take a step back and be able to come back even stronger.
I will warn you right now, this will be a long post. So please, grab a snack, a cup of tea, a glass of wine, cozy up on the couch, under a blanket and join me on this lengthy life update.
Where to begin…
Let’s start last May when there was a fire in my condo. I was there that night and being woken up by fire alarms and looking out my bedroom window to see flames bursting out of an apartment on the other side of the building was one of the scariest things I have ever experienced. Needless to say I was a little shaken up after that and it took me a few weeks to stop having flashbacks and feel safe.
On top of that unfortunate event, a relationship I had been in for several months ended abruptly. That person turned out to be one of the most deceitful people I have ever been with and it hurt me deeply. I can now see the light and how good it was that it ended when it did, but at the time I was not ok and it took me a while to get passed it all. Having your trust broken by someone you are trying to build something significant with really goddamn hurts! Now I can look back and see the signs that it was surely not going to last, but in the moment I was blind to it all and then I was crushed.
Afterward, I spent the summer trying to be ok again. I made sure to surround myself with good friends, get out in the sun as much as possible, eat well and move my body. All those things made it possible for me to become myself again.
Last August, after a tumultuous summer of trying my best to move on and eventually get to a good point again, someone absolutely amazing stepped into my life in a most unexpected way. This person gave me the space I needed to heal fully, while building a genuine, caring, good relationship with me. By Fall, I can say that I was fully over the events of the summer and ready to get into something new with the most wonderful person. Now I am still happy with this new love, living each day being with someone who treats me so wonderfully.
Oh and not to mention that for almost six months I had been solely using my iPad and phone for any and all internet/social media. Which didn’t make blogging impossible, but it made it a lot more complicated. Now that I have my new computer, it’s blogging time again and I’M BACK !
To sum it all up, last year the building I live in was on fire, my relationship ended in a shitty way, then I met my guy. I also didn’t have a properly functioning laptop anymore, which diminished my motivation ten fold.
I am ready to be back in the blogging game! Get ready for more posts, more content, more Adele!
Hope you are all having an absolutely marvellous day, I’ve missed you all and I am so so so happy to be back online!
