Dear WordPress…

…In 2017 I promise to be a better blogger!

Hi everyone, I’m back. Please forgive me, it’s been a month since my last blog post but life has been pretty crazy. Since we got home for our trip we’ve been busy catching up with friends and family, and of course getting ready for Christmas.

I took some time away from the blog and social media in general to switch off, reframe my blogging goals and to have a think about where I’m going to go with it next year. Although I’m still not 100% sure, I think I’m beginning to get there. It’ll still be beauty and lifestyle related, but now that the year of the holiday has come to an end, it’s time to set myself a new challenge. What that will be however, is still to be decided!

For now, I just want to thank all of you who have stopped by to read my blog this year, for commenting, liking and following, and for sharing this journey with me. I know I’ve been absent of late but I’ll be back to my old blogging self in the New Year.

So from my family to yours, I wish you all a wonderful, happy and peaceful Christmas, and all the best of everything for 2017. 

See you all soon…

Embracing Change

We’re brought up knowing that the one certainty in life, is that nothing is certain. If we know it, and understand it, then why is it so difficult when change comes our way?

Some change is good, amazing in fact. It makes our lives interesting and fun and unpredictable. But the kind of change that comes out of nowhere and slaps you in the face? That’s the change I’m taking issue with today!

People have varying ways of coping with slap-in-the-face change, some better than others of course. But it’s confession time. I am not one of those people. I one of the ones who’s mouth goes dry, nerves build up in my gut and I hover for days between dizziness and nausea depending on the extremity of the change. It all sounds very dramatic I know.

Today I found out something is changing, just as I had arrived at a happy, comfortable, easy, breezy place with it. It’s a new year and it’s all about change I get that – I’ve been talking nothing but change for the past few days and now it’s come back to bite me in the ass! Don’t you just hate when that happens?

A 2015 version of me would have had a complete panic about it, but in the spirit of embracing positivity this year, I’m going to need to embrace the change also. Damn. What was it Lemony Snicket said – if we wait until we’re ready, we’ll be waiting for the rest of our lives? I best get on with it so…

Rant over. I feel better. Thanks for listening! 🙂

I think it’s time to go meditate now. Ommmm…
