It´s been way too long. I´ve been gone a long time. I know. Where have I been?
I´ve been living my life. To the fullest.
Let me tell you a little bit of what´s been going on.
I accepted to work on a project way back and thought that it wasn´t going to be so time consuming. Well, I thought wrong. I literally left for work early in the morning and went straight from work to work on this project until late at night. I ate dinner way too late every day and slept an amount of six hours per day, which is for me – long sleeper of duty;-) – waaay too short. Well I pushed through because it was something I wanted to do and had fun most of the time. I did doubt everything from time to time and think about quitting, but if you´ve been subscribed to me for a while, you´d know I´m no quitter. So I didn´t quit. In the end it all paid off so well. All hard work was worth it and the next few days we were part of this big community where we presented our project. These people were just incredible. So open-minded, so tolerant, nice, happy, supportive, positive… it was such a joy to get to know so many amazing souls. In that time I really felt my heart expand. Literally. Waking up early was not hard, leaving late at night was. These people just made me feel so good I didn´t want to leave them. When it all ended the people I really connected to stayed and stay in my life. Social media and sometimes meet ups help me stay in contact, which is such a great thing.
What I am trying to say is that in the time I was gone, I had the best time. I wrote a post before about how everything is not exactly working out right now. Well, it is now. Thank you to everybody for baring with me, thank you for commenting on that post and thank you for reading my posts, which are all over the place right now…I know…I´m working on it…
In this time I set priorities, not stressing about posting, not stressing about getting in every run on my training plan, not stressing about a late dinner, just eliminating all stress factors and focussing on what´s really important.
I think I´ve found it. It´s spending time with people you love and people who make you want to get out of bed in the morning. I didn´t have the capacities and time to write a lot, I didn´t take a lot of photos. What I did was I spent time with people, I had fun, I was there for people who needed me, I let old friendships blossom again.
All of that felt so good. Don´t get me wrong: I still LOVE to write and I will continue to write more and more. But before I was letting my tasks take my friendships away. To say it dramatically. I always needed to come home to finish work. I hardly had time for friends and I was feeling so stressed out most of the time. Now I take that time and I am literally a different person. I smile the day long (probably also due to the sun finally shining here…it´s been a rainy summer start…) and I have so much more energy to do the things I love. Which are writing, photographing, writing, writing, …;-)
I´ve set myself the goal to build this blog up, because it´s something I´m passionnate about. I want to reconnect with all of you! I´ve missed you! I want to write again. Create content.
This time that has passed has helped me to get out of my rut and back into life with more energy than ever.
Now it´s time to keep those friendships I made growing and blossoming and it´s time to take more time to write on here and on my book.
Another point I want to address real quick, since I´m thinking about content and building this blog: it´s you reading all this. I´d love to know what you like to read on here. What makes you click on my posts and read them? Which are the posts you enjoy the most? Please, please, please do leave a comment down below to help me plan more stuff for you.
So this was a post updating you and telling you that I´m alive and back!
If you want to know anything, feel free to ask in the comments and I´ll be happy to respond.
One more question: How are you? Tell me down below. I´m so curious to hear.
You got a lot to answer there, my friend;-) Don´t hesitate, write. (You don´t have to answer everything, of course, but I´m happy about every word you send my way.)
Happy to be back,
