Hi guys, I wanted to do a quick post just to let you know that I know I have been MIA the last few weeks, and to explain why really.
I have been really struggling with coping with everything at the moment – I have a few personal things going on, working full-time and blogging – I was putting a lot of pressure on myself.
I am not very good at spotting when I am getting to my maximum coping levels, but luckily I have my amazing man, who knows when I am reaching that point, and tells me I need to take some time out.
I knew I was beginning to suffer as I was feeling tired all the time, lacking motivation, crying at basically anything and literally just like I wanted to crawl into bed and stay there for a month! I always struggle at this time of year anyway.
I am a person who hates saying No
, I always put other people first and I always feel guilty if I ever do say No – but this time I decided to put myself first, as pointed out to me by my lovely man – my health comes first.
I have taken a break from my Blog for a few weeks, and wow – having my time back in the evenings has mad a real difference to me – I have been enjoying nice long showers, cosying up in my PJ’s, getting into bed and reading – which is something I haven’t done in
I even ended up going back to bed on Saturday afternoon for a few hours sleep as I was so tired, and that is something I would not usually have done – the guilt factor would have kicked in – I should be doing this, I should be doing that – just catching up on sleep and rest made such a huge difference.
I have decided that I am going to put less pressure on myself and make more time for me – even if I just get a few early nights and catch up on sleep. I need to take care of myself and my physical and mental health.
I hope you guys understand that I needed to take some time out, and although I’m back into the blogging thing again, I’m not going to put so much pressure on myself, and I really hope you will all stick with me.
