Hello again, sorry I’ve been away for so long. Everything has been a bit crazy for the past month and although a lot of it has been wonderful I’ve needed some time to breathe. It’s all too easy to get overwhelmed in this world and occasionally everyone needs to step back, see it all from a distance and really take it all in.
I’ve been feeling stuck.
It’s so easy to get yourself into a rut. To feel like you aren’t going anywhere or doing the things you want to do because you’ve lost the momentum to really go for it like you need to. I felt like I needed a challenge, to do something that would really shake me up and get me going again. . .
For a while it felt like my world had been flipped upside down.
I’ve always been a fan of routines, I like knowing what I’m doing and where I’m going, I like being certain of outcomes. But recently I challenged myself to let that go. I started switching up every little routine I had and abandoning careful planning for spontaneity and it’s been amazing. Letting things go and taking more risks has led me to meet new people and experience new things. But it’s also been really draining. It’s difficult to adjust to changes in your life and after a few weeks I started to miss the safety of my routines, I missed knowing exactly where each day was leading me.
But I think I’m feeling better now.
Although I struggled letting go of my routines and abandoning my safety nets I do feel like it’s dug me out of the hole I’d stuck myself in. I’m excited to be writing again, to throw myself back into this blog of mine and expand on it even more. There will still be many posts about the books I’ve read and the ways they have effected me but I want to mix things up a bit. I always imagined Letting Go Of Fairytales as a scrapbook; bits about books, bits about life and maybe even some of my own creative writing thrown in for good measure. I finally feel like I’m ready to put it all into this blog and make it into something I really, really love. I hope you guys love it too.
Thank you for being patient with me.
I know that July has basically been silent on this little corner of the internet but now I’ve taken some time things will be picking up again. I’ve been figuring out what I want to do and where I want to go with all of this and now I have I can’t wait to get things started. . .
