Yes hullo old friends, it’s been a few weeks since I’ve been properly online and probably closer to a couple of months since I REALLY sat down to work on my online content.
It’s been a weird start to 2019. Towards the end of last year I had made a big, bold statement that I was taking December off any sort of blog writing and Instagram planning with the idea in my pretty lil’ head that I would be back in the new year at my BEST. Kinda like a Britney comeback but actually successful, ya know? I was excited, I was motivated and it allowed me breathing space to get shit done with work plus take some real time off over the new year.
It was all hunky dory and life was grand.
But then I arrived back from holidays and I never found my groove with my online space. When I have spare time on the weekends all I want to do is spend it with my family because Noons is still working away. The last thing on my mind is swanning around town taking outfit shots and then spend late nights during the week editing. My job is pretty hardcore with a bunch of out-of-hours social stuff (which is totes cool) but when I’m off I want to be completely off to unwind, ya feeling me?
I’ve started to even feel envious of my mates who share photos on their social media at the weekend then don’t really upload until the following weekend. They don’t have that constant niggling feeling of being ON all the time. Insta-story, outfit shots, when can I take the pic, best time to upload, how many likes, replying to comments, proof-reading…. It’s not that I don’t love writing and sharing. God you guys I’ve been doing this for so long it scares me so much that I could poop my pants that I’m entertaining the idea of possible this being the end of it all for me. It’s just the current mindset and schedule I have is not working for me.
I’m struggling to find a happy medium where I still have quality time with the family, ME time and not feel like I am always on but still be adding value to all of you.
So for now this is a I-have-no-fucking-idea-what-i’m-doing-but-i’m-trying-to-figure-it-out.
Good day, sir.
