“When I loved myself enough, I began leaving whatever wasn’t healthy. This meant people, jobs, my own beliefs and habits – anything that kept me small. My judgement called it disloyal. Now I see it as self-loving.”
– Kim McMillen
I am back after a much-needed break from here and social media, I have literally spent the last six months filling every hour of my life with activities, days out and ways to keep busy as a form of distraction. Which not only worked but also led me to have an incredible six months and probably one of the best summers of my life. I needed some time to just be alone, slow down and be comfortable spending time alone again. Not to mention I feel like I have done nothing adult-like in the last six months, so I have been spending the last couple of weeks doing normal things like actual food shopping, getting my car cleaned etc. And just spending weekends alone and loving the time alone, going for coffee, cinema trips and dinners on my own.
The break has given me a new focus, drive and purpose! Some of the things I thought I wanted I have realised I don’t and things that I never thought I wanted I am now working towards. 2018 has not been the year I had hoped for at the start and it certainly won’t end the way I ever thought imaginable but I guess that’s life and part of moving forward. This break has made me realise that I definitely need to have more breaks in my life not just from work but from here and social media too. But for now, I am back and have lots of new posts to share with you and lots of memories for us to make together!
