Life update

Hey folks, just a quickie. I’ve been absent alot on the blog and I honestly keep forgetting all about it.

I’ve not been myself this year with my mental health and trying to get back into doing the things I love has been majorly difficult, I’ve not crocheted for months now and writing has fizzled. But i also have a million things happening in my life, which includes my health and I need to take care of my mental health and physical! My back, legs, headache, eye sight I just aren’t in best of shape.

I honestly didn’t think about being this honest, but I guess I just needed to vent a little. I love my blog I love coming here and sharing but at the moment my heart really isn’t in it! I’ve also taken it upon myself to try and not spend so much time on social media, thus being only having one IG and popping on weekly. Keeping my personal FB and Twitter but again, limiting my time.

I’ve also realised I need to focus on the things that make me happy, which is all the stuff I have neglected. My crocheting and writing. I set a goal to finish a book this year and I will do this even if it makes my fingers fall off! I cant give up and won’t give up. I also sell hair bows casually, and these next few weeks I have 4 fayres and some in December, so I have been extremely busy.

That’s of course not all, I don’t know what to do about my blog. I really hate the thought of deleting it, so I’m giving myself until December when the domain mapping runs out and decide then. Maybe ill just keep doing this, pop on once in a while with a post or random book review. Idk. So, if I do say farewell I’ll let you know but just thinking about it makes me sad!

New beginnings – I should have had new beginnings at the start of the year, but as always life tests me and I can’t seem to catch a break. Until recently!

I’m 29 this year and I think alot of my sadness is dwelling on the lack of achievement I’ve gained. I applied for university, it was a last minute application and I honestly didn’t think I’d get in – I got a call and I expected them to say no your qualifications lack etc but I’ve actually been offered a place OMG?!?!

I’M GOING BACK TO SCHOOL. I’ll be studying criminal psychology and I’ve never been so happy or felt so positive and I just really can’t tell you how much this has helped me – I’m still feeling my down moments but Rome wasn’t built in a day! I love the mind, psychology and criminology has always interested me and I really don’t know why I’ve waited this long. I think i never new what I truly wanted out of life other than write.

So, I’m officially a student. I want to work within the police, again always something fascinated me but thought it daft. I know what I want, my path is clear and my future I hope looks promising. Now all I need to do is write this damned book and get healthy!

And that’s it. I hope everyone is well and this community will always have a special place! Take care for now and hopefully, catch up soon.

  1. Well done Rebecca! If you don’t have time to blog, don’t worry about it, just pick the 10-15 blogs you really enjoy, and pop in when and only when you have the time. No pressure. Go to school and enjoy the opportunity to be a student! XX
