It’s been a while, and I thought it was time to let you know why!
Don’t worry, everything is fine (except for global warming, the Amazon Rainforest is burning, and we have psychopath bullies running the world.. Eeek.. Shit just got political!) but there’s some really big changes going on in my life.
Let’s start with the really good news first! Those of you who follow me on Instagram already know this. I had love come into my life, quite unexpectedly, some months ago. It’s a really wonderful story and I will tell you all about it in a post very soon. So for those of you who don’t gag from cheesy romantic content: stay tuned!
This wonderful guy is now a part of my little family, and he even moved in a couple of weeks ago! So, it’s official: He’s stuck with this awkward weirdo! Haha!
I was open to finding love again, but wasn’t looking for it, and was very much prepared for it to not happen. What I was even less prepared for was how it would make me rethink a lot of things. But more on that later!
More positive stuff!
I was pretty much away from both social media and real life social stuff because of a really big freelance job. I will spill the beans on that later on as well, but it was a very conscious choice to drop a lot of things and focus and that job. It was one of those possibly career defining moments, and I went for it with everything I had. The result of that was a lot of work during my summer holiday, and quite a few weeks with me working what felt like two full time jobs.
And now for something else:
I wouldn’t say that it’s something negative, although it is inspired by a lot of negative things. I’ve been doing a lot of thinking lately about what’s going on in the world, what I want to do about it, and how I can help. When I look at what’s going on around us I find it hard to not lose hope, but I refuse to do so. This is our home. And the fact that we’ve been rubbish at taking care of it isn’t exactly a secret. I’ve made a whole lot of changes to the way I live my life to try to better my own life, the life of others, and the planet in general. I want my kid to have a future. I want him to be able to enjoy the wonders of life instead of having to fight to survive here. I want there to be a brighter future, even though it sometimes feels difficult to even imagine such a thing.
But I haven’t given up hope yet! And I’m still trying to do my part. I also feel like sharing the things that I do, not as a way to try tell other people what to do, but to maybe inspire and help.
So, that’s where a lot of the changes will come in. I will still focus a lot on books and literature, but I will also try to add more of my life choices, and some tips and tricks I’ve come to discover along the way.
I won’t say that I’m back, because I never left. But here’s to somewhat of a new beginning!
