    What happened & what's going on..

    I'M BACK - Yes I am, ready and packed for a new exciting adventure!


    I've been out of the blogging/social media world for almost half a year, I can't believe that it's already been that long ago since my last post here on this blog. A lot has happened since then, and to keep a long and dreadful story short.. I somehow got caught in this never-ending negative cycle which caused me to break down mentally and emotionally. With all the events going on at the time, I simply couldn't hold it together anymore. There was this whole situation going on with my mom, I had quite a stressful job (I was always overworking) and then there was even more stress trying to maintain my blog, which all together made my chronic headache even more worse than ever and so unbearable.

    You can probably guess what was coming next. I needed to set my priorities, and blogging was not one of them anymore. I could've done things differently though, letting you guys know what was going on and explaining the radio silence. But I didn't and I don't know why, I have no excuses this time. You guys have always been supporting me no matter what the past two years, so I kind of feel ashamed of how I handled things. I am truly sorry.

    Well, with that being said (I stared at a blank page for almost an hour) it's time for a fresh start, leaving all the negativity behind! From now on I only want to write and talk about positive things, or how to deal with all the negativity that we come across in life in a positive way! The past few months were really an eye opener for me as it made me realise how much I appreciate all the things I have, and how grateful I am to be where I am now.

    After a long time of hesitation, I finally made the decision to quit my old job - and you know, it feels so damn good. I had to much stress like I mentioned before and it really was an unhealthy environment for me to stay in. I have a new job now and I'm so happy! I even have an extra day off so I have plenty of time to do other things - such as exercising! I have this weekly work-out routine which I'm sticking to and for the first time in a loooooong time I feel so energised.

    I've had three wisdom teeth pulled out last week so right now I'm still recovering from the surgery. I've been living on painkillers and liquid food for the past few days so that pretty sucks.. You have no idea how much I'm craving for a XXL burger right now! Hopefully it will get better soon because I have a trip planned at the end of this month, yay! My birthday is also around the corner, which means summer is too! So many exciting things to look forward to!

    My boyfriend and I wanted to move out during Fall last year, but as how the circumstances where back then we had no choice but to suspend our search.. But we are apartment hunting again! I hope that we can find a perfect place for us and move out by the end of summer! Mommy is doing great as well! There are still some complications but hopefully that will also go away in time, we have to stay positive!

    Last but not at least.. Thank you a million times for all the lovely messages and e-mails I received, for all the wishes and prayers for my mom back then and for being such loyal, sweet and patience followers that you guys are!


    Cheers!

      1. Hi Lydia! Thank you so much for your kind words! I'm so sorry to hear that you also had to face some complications this past year.. I really hope that everything is ok now :) I think we all have our own problems to fight and we all deal with it in an different way. Sometimes we just have to give things up - for a while - to achieve a bigger goal. I hope you'll get back to blogging any time soon, believe in yourself and stay positive! Slow progress is still better than no progress!

    20. Hi Levi, this might be the first time I'm leaving a comment on your blog (don't know why it took me so long to do so..please forgive me). Anyway, I just wanted to let you know that I'm glad to hear that you're back on track and that your mom is doing better! You may have been through a rough period, but you're getting so much stronger afterwards! Don't give up girl! You're such a brave, strong person with a great sense of style ;) Stay happy! xo Vivian
