(Once again) it’s been a bit of a while since I last posted, and boy has a lot happened.
I’m not going to get too deep into what happened and why, all I’ll say that is I’m no longer with Stephen. Sometimes no matter how much you try, you can never make something work. Being with someone for years doesn’t make them ‘the one’ and that just can’t be helped.
One piece of advice I will give is to not let yourself be second best while trying to help someone else. Your own feelings and self care needs to always be at the top of your own priority.
My lack of posts have not only come from having absolutely no motivation WHAT SO EVER, but also taking some time to focus on myself and focus on getting back a bit of love for myself again.
I’ve always struggled with loving myself. I’ve never thought highly of myself, my brain, body, personality etc but now I’m starting to appreciate the small things, finding what I’m good at and focusing on those things. Taking more care of myself by eating better, going to the gym (or at least trying to) and spending more time with family and friends.
I think a massive help has been the love I have for my job.
I think I mentioned my job in a previous post, I certainly mentioned losing my last job!!! (the best thing that could have ever happened to me). I actually enjoy getting up for work each morning, yeah it may be a little struggle actually getting out of my warm, cosy bed, especially when its still pitch black outside, but getting into work and getting on with my day makes me feel great! I work at an amazing company where I have made some of the best friends and work never feels like a chore.
It’s such a refreshing feeling having worked at some awful places in the past! Loving your job truly is a blessing.
So, as per the title,
EVERYTHING HAPPENS FOR A REASON!
If I hadn’t lost my job, I’d never have found a job I love, met some of the friends I had, and even thought more clearly about my career choices.
If my relationship hadn’t have ended, I probably would have never found myself, begun taking care of myself, and I probably would have missed out on a lot of things that I’ve done/plan to do.
There’s a lot to look forward to coming up. Now I may not instantly go back to posting on a regular bases but I hope to continue with my blog and not just give up completely.
