Hello you, I know it’s been a while…
I had been taking a breather from my blog and social media, but the universe, through the form of people in my life kept telling me to pursue makeup. And when it happened several times from different people in the space of a week, I decided to listen. An oddity for me as I often don’t tell people about my love for makeup and blogging, as 1.) there has been some past negativity towards it and 2.) you would never guess I’m into makeup as I look pretty rough at work.- I’m just too CBA that early in the morning!
Feeling an unexpected couple of nudges from the world, I sat down, got my phone out and typed out this post. A sort of reintroduction of me, I suppose, through my blog to you.
With working full time, I had been hard on myself for not posting, then what I was creating I wasn’t happy with and posts just sat in an open tab on my internet browser for weeks.
I’ve been hard on myself, often focusing on distant future goals, which made me lose sight of the achievements I’d already met. My blog was always a safe haven for me, but at times I felt too put out by the world around me to take the time for me. -To do something I like, which was blogging. I also felt pressure to make my blog like everyone else’s and to scrap beauty reviews, as it wasn’t “the in thing anymore”.
Too tired. Not enough time. And pressure to fit in.
If you look at them written down, they’re excuses. Excuses which honesty are pretty poor and they took away the whole reason I started this blog. A place for me to write and be me. Originally fashion related, but well I tried makeup and that, was that… It’s where I could be creative and without me knowing it at the time it was where my confidence grew and where my personal journey began.
Three years on, writing this post I can see how far I’ve come. Blogging is a lot more than writing, it’s photography, editing, web design and that’s just scratching the surface.- Skills I never thought I would ever do for myself, and in the beginning I couldn’t I had to rope my bf into doing it!
I’m saying f*ck off to the excuses. I’m setting little goals; I’m going to write everyday, even it is a sentence or a whole post. I’m not going to be hard on myself when I don’t upload and I’m going to write what I want! So expect some wedding posts, as I’m in the midst of planning my alternative intimate wedding for next year, and I will becoming back with beauty reviews.
I’m bringing back me time, and my me time is my blog.
