Apologies for the radio silence, but it’s been an odd time for the world the last few months, which is why I stopped writing. Not because I couldn’t, but because I didn’t really know what to write.
So much has happened in just a few months this year that everyone has been feeling a bit.. Blah.
My mojo for writing disappeared with my motivation to do pretty much anything. I know I’m not alone in that, but whilst the world was unsure what would happen next, I wasn’t really in the mood to write anything. And definitely not anything that any of my readers would be interested in reading. Besides, who really wants to read, ‘Day 43 of lockdown, I’ve moved from the sitting room to the bedroom and look uninspired at the floordrobe mess that populates a large amount of my bedroom.’ No one wants to read that, relate to it, maybe. But read it? No.
First off, how are you all? Really?
Last week was Mental Health Awareness Week, but it’s still relevant a week on. Lockdown or not, mental health is über important, especially throughout this crisis. I’ve not been in isolation during lockdown, I’m lucky to say we’re ok on that part, however I know so many of you that have been, but please know there are always people available to talk. So my inbox is always open if you wanna chat.
So what’s happened my end?
Apart from an ever-expanding waistline – I did try to diet but somehow it was easier to just snack or have a wine because the sun was coming out again, so diet wise, I’m still a whale. Work fell apart at first but thankfully it’s starting to pick up, and companies are now starting to bloody realise that remote working does actually work. Take that haters!
And I’ve finally decided to take the plunge and set up a brownie business.
It’s actually going to happen this time.
I’ve spoken about it for ages, years even. But the lockdown has put so much into perspective that I think I can’t really make any excuses anymore.
I’m fussier about the people I work with and the projects I commit to.
I also really enjoy the fact that people love my brownies. So, thanks to the loving supportive network of friends and family, I’m taking the plunge.
Whilst I apologise that I’ve not been writing anything for a while, I can say I will make a habit of it in the future.
Why? Because it relaxes me. It makes me feel good. It’s a way to express myself. Instead of writing every few days, I’ll write when I get that burst of energy that fills me with happiness and I’ll get my iPad out and write.
I’m also pushing more to fulfil my days better. Time management is ok on my part but I need to be better at it. I also need to know when to switch off. Whilst social media is a massive part of my job, I do need to know when to stop. A social media detox after a certain point is extremely important for me, my mind and for my family.
Love to you all,
