Almost Thirty

So let’s catch up

5th February 2020 by naffy

Almost Thirty It has been a hot minute since I have written any words on this website. In fact, it has been over the month, probably the longest I have gone without posting on here for at least a year which is why I thought we should have a bit of a catch-up. So grab yourself a cuppa and let’s have a good old catch up.

New Job

The first thing I should probably say is that I have a new job and with that comes an adjustment period. I needed to take some time to get into a routine, focus on being the best version of myself in my role and soak it all in. I am all too aware of burning out and I wanted to do everything in my power to prevent myself from getting to that stage so while I was posting a little I took the pressure off myself. If I came home tired for the first time in a while, I gave myself permission to relax and not push through burning the candle at both ends.

Self Reflection

I have always wanted to make a difference in whatever I do. My mental health stripped me of a lot during my early twenties and I wanted to take some time to sit back and ask myself exactly what it is I wanted to do. What I wanted my legacy to be. This was from the way I treat people to what I share online on this platform and my other social channels. I want to make sure it is valuable and not just for the sake of creating content. Speaking of which, if there is a topic you want me to explore, just let me know and I will do my best to get it done.

Spending time with family

I don’t know how much I am going to share about this or if I am going to share anything at all but I will let you know my family has been through a lot over the past few months so any of my free time has been spent with them and figuring out what they need. So I took some out to just be present being there for them when they need it without the pressure of thinking I have a million of things I need to do on my laptop. To be fair this has really been the case for most of the year. When I am with my family the majority of the time I am laptop free. If I am not it is usually to watch something or to do my actual paid job on my work laptop. I spent the occasional early morning before the others woke up to do some of the self-reflection I have spoken about but aside from that I haven’t really opened this beautiful piece of technology.

All of this is to say, I still love this space, I just needed to take some time to be present, readjust and realign with my priorities in life but rest assured, this is not the end. See you soon.
