It’s been a while since I have last written and before I delve into the main title of this blog post I am briefly going to summarise my reasons for this.
Life has been hectic. And I am not saying that in a bad way but in the best.way.possible. I have been making new friends (briefly mentioned in my last blog post) and having some amazing weekends with them. So much so that in all honesty I have completely abandoned my social media in the process.
Now I don’t mean this in a bad way because actually taking a break from my YouTube channel, my blog and my Instagram and posting less and more sporadically has been incredibly refreshing.
I don’t feel this undying pressure to post because the next person is. I don’t feel the pressure to keep up with the ever growing algorithm’s which are hitting influencers and bloggers alike left, right and centre. Through this I have now privatised my Instagram allowing me to filter out all the spam content and people that I simply don’t want following me (and I don’t mean that in a mean way!)
With Summer now upon us I have been getting out, enjoying myself and yes, still taking pictures in the process, but not feeling like I have to upload them. In fact I have a lot of photos which I would have, in the past, deemed ‘insta worthy’ but I don’t actually want to share with the rest of the world, and I am okay with that.
Besides all that, myself and Ash have been looking into moving to a new flat. We have been in our current one for almost four years now and we feel a turning point is on it’s way. This flat has held so many memories but we both feel we’re starting to outgrow it and a fresh start in a new flat will be a great new chapter for us both. Que lots of moving Vlogs & taking you guys on this exciting journey with us!
Right, now down to the fact I have just turned 29.
This is a huge DEAL. Turning 29 is on the brink of your 30’s without giving it the actual title and thinking “God, how did I get here?!” And looking back at your 20’s thinking “where the f*** did that go?!” It’s the topping of an amazing and life changing 10 years and I wouldn’t change what I have been through one bit. I have learnt to be myself, be happy with myself, and be strong for myself whilst trying to juggle this mad roller coaster ride called life. I spent the earlier part of my 20’s very much single, in fact single AF. But I spent the latter part of my 20’s with the absolute man of my dreams that puts up with everything I do or say. Even if it does almost cause him to get an extra vein in the process.
Life is never easy. I know first hand how quickly things can go from good, to bad to worse in a split second. But what my 20’s have taught me are a lot of life lessons that I will carry with me for years to come, heck, I am still learning but if it means this is a turning point in my life where I can look back at how far I have come already, then I am super proud to say my 20’s were the best frickin years of my life.
