Style | Back for Good?
I don't even know how to start this post, I mean it feels like I haven't blogged in so long but, in reality, it has only been about 4 or 5 weeks. Actually, that is quite long I guess in the blogging world.
I knew I had to take a break when one Sunday I sat at my laptop for 3 hours and didn't write a thing, I had pictures that I wasn't quite happy with and the words, they were not flowing. I had a lot of stuff going on in my life along with being quite ill, something had to give and unfortunately it was the blog.
I'd also been suffering a huge confidence crisis. I hated all of my wardrobe, I suddenly felt self conscious when I went out and, as it was so hot, I was constantly a hot sweaty mess. My skin had broken out for the first time in years, I just wanted to shut myself away from the world. I also got sucked into that Instagram trap of comparing myself to others, which just made me feel even worse. Its so easy for that to happen when you have a lot of famous bloggers/instragramers showing the best parts of their lives. After a couple of days I had to sharply remind myself that they too will have good and bad days, that we only see a snippet of their daily lives and perhaps, like me, they have days when all they want to do is eat, sleep and lounge in their favourite pjs!
Today is the first time I've opened my laptop (for blogging) and it feels right, like I'm ready to come back, maybe once a week for now but who knows! Let's see what happens!
