Two years. Two. Freaking. Years.
Two years ago I hit the lowest point of my depression. Two years ago I felt like I was in a constant state of numbness which I tried so hard to hide. Two years ago, when I wrote this post, I had never felt more alone or helpless. I couldn’t find the motivation or the love in me to write, read, or do much else apart from kind of exist in my own little bubble while I watched the world as I knew it crumble around me.
That is how long it has been since I last wrote a blog post.
Two years later, I no longer feel like I’m struggling to keep my head above the water; I’m not paddling my way through life anymore. Life has not gone the way I planned at all, however I’ve been learning to accept things as they come, to not beat myself up over things and to let things take their course. I’m still at university (it’s taken a little longer than I would’ve liked, but oh well), I’ve been through two different jobs, I organized my very first event in Public Relations (with over 1500 people attending), I found the joy in everyday things and I fell back in love with the world.
I’m coming back to blogging because I feel like I’m ready again, and blogging has been on my mind since I stopped! I’ve been thinking about where I’m going to take this blog when I get started again and I’ve decided a few things:
- I will post twice a week. One review and one other post. I may post more often some weeks, however I am not putting the pressure on myself to promise to do more than I may be able to handle some weeks
- I will be redesigning and revamping this entire site very soon! I'm hoping to give it a fresh look and feel.
- I will be editing and going over sections like my review policy and may make changes, but I will let you know :)
I’ve really missed this community and can’t wait to participate and be a part of it again. I’m obviously out of the loop with things like current memes and whether they still even exist (or if there are any new ones that would be fun to take part in) and if there have been any other major changes, so if any of you have any suggestions to help me with blogging again that would be amazing! Also, how are YOU going? I would love to hear from fellow bloggers and would love to make new (more) friends in this community :)
I hope that you will stay tuned for more to come in the near future, either way I'm glad to be back :)
