Why did I stop blogging? I'm honestly not too sure as there was not one specific reason, however I also didn't actually plan to stop blogging. In the last few months of published posts back in 2014 I just slowly started posting less and less, which can be attributed to the fact this was nearing my GCSE's. When I finished them, despite having the long summer ahead, I just never sat down and came back to blogging and it spiralled from there. I do still read blogs (but not hardly as much as I used to...) but the passion I had for it seemed to disappear and I didn't have any motivation to blog.
I feel strangely connected yet very distant from blogging, as despite not being 'active' on my blogs twitter I still go on it multiple times a day so I still feel like I'm immersed within the blogging world, without actually being a part of it. I have actually considered re-starting blogging a few times since I last posted but I have been very busy the past two years and never got round to it...I still as I write this don't honestly feel like the passion I once had for it has suddenly come back, BUT something made me open my laptop and write this post which I'm not sure where its going!
I think the most important and strange thing for me sitting here and writing this as I am a completely different person to who I was the last time I pressed 'publish' on a post. In June 2014 which is when my last post is dated, I was a
Personal growth is something I think is so important, and honestly I'm not sure how I managed to become the person I am today compared to two years ago. That sounds like I've had some life changing experiences or something which isn't true - its not quite that dramatic. However I do know my general confidence and self confidence has grown so much but this has not been without very very down points too. I have experienced quite a roller coaster the last two years and am I exactly at the place I want to be right now? No I'm not, but that's the best thing about your own personal growth and development, its a journey.
On that note, I have a lot of topics like the aforementioned one which I'd like to write about on here as I do think the last two years (particularly the last year) have been the most eventful of my entire life. When I contemplated writing about this I realised maybe a reason I fell out of love with my blog was feeling restricted to 'beauty' and I feel like now I just couldn't write purely about that, i have been exposed to so many new things I would like to share to that it would seem silly to only write about one topic when there are things I would really like to write about.
So who knows, despite starting University at the end of this month maybe coming back to blogging isn't a realistic task, but I think having the freedom to just right down my thoughts makes it much more appealing than slaving away over a product review (not saying I'm not going to stop these). Maybe I'll have a blog re design so it doesn't feel so cutesy and come back to posting more regularly on both here and my social media accounts!
But for now, I feel like the time is right to slowly return to blogging... (this was very long and ramble-y typed at 00:10 so if you've read this far, thank you Haha)
