I’m back again finally, after a super long break! The last six months or so has been whirlwind of events. I started a new job, leaving my previous agency after being there for almost 5 years. I travelled for work and for pleasure. Then I turned thirty and went bananas, celebrating my birthday almost every weekend in August! It’s been a busy few months, with many late nights and crazy weekends, some low moments and great times! But through it all, I can genuinely say I’ve lived my best life, with my best people and some new friends.
Now it’s coming up to the festive period, the quarter of the year where I spend the most money (for obvious reasons). I’ve been in a reflective mood. I took a break from blogging and even Instagram to a degree, by posting once a month. Sometimes no posts at all for weeks. My new job is demanding, with may new processes I wasn’t used to, coming from an independent to a large media agency. Working on a new high profiled account, with a team who were just as new as me. I was struggling to balance this, a social life, a blog and the many other projects I worked on outside of work. However, I’m truly grateful for the opportunities and experiences. 2019 is looking amazing already!
Back from a Break
Now I’m back, I’m excited to make content and put the fun back into what I love to do! Taking breaks are so important, I mention this in an old post about taking breaks. Sometimes we all get lost in the fast pace of life as a millennial, with our whats app messages popping off, trying to shine in your day job and even dating! Sometimes while we try to keep up with appearances, we forget to take care of ourselves. This year was the first time I decided to focus on one thing at a time, rather than trying to juggle multiple focuses all at once.
Now that I’ve got my groove back, I’m going to continue to challenge myself and try new things. I’m going to review my goals, and set new ones with the bar raised much higher. Sometimes I wonder if I sound arrogant, but I always speak in faith. Anyway, I can’t believe how quick this year has flown by! However, I’m excited about what 2019 will hold. Not just in blogging, but my career and life! Special shout outs to Pilar and Jennifer you guys made my 2018! Also to Richard for always praying for me!
