Hello again, I never thought I would be writing this but here we are, the start of 2017 and the start of my blog again.
2016 was an amazing year for me on a personal level, but it was also the year I got a bit lost with myself. It’s hard to say that I lost myself but I really did. Even as I’m writing this, I’m also trying to plan 2017 goals, both for this blog and personal ones, and I think I’ve come to accept that I’m not really a planner.
For years I struggled to blog the way I was supposed to, I struggled with keeping things consistent and I struggled with knowing what I really wanted to do with it all. And I still don’t. But I’m okay with that for now. I think my strength lies in my spontaneity. If it wasn’t for my snap decision to delete my blog in December, I wouldn’t be here now writing this. I guess it’s only when you really commit to something that you realize whether it was something you really liked or not.
I do really miss blogging, the writing part of it is just so personal, and something I am finding really hard to replicate on youtube. For a lot of things I absolutely love youtube, but for things like this, the gritty and the personal, nothing beats the written word.
It’s strange how I didn’t really miss blogging, until I deleted my blog and made it all final. For a year, I’d kept it all up, but not really running and I think at the back of my mind I always knew I’d want to come back to it. During December I decided to stop paying for something that I really didn’t use, and only then did I decide I wanted to return.
So that’s what this is, a little, re-introduction.
And if you’re new here, hello, I’m April and I hope you stick around.
