It’s true, I’m a fraud. For the past 2 years I have been claiming that I am a ‘travel and lifestyle’ blogger, but yet with less than a dozen posts, can one call themselves a blogger? Like everyone else in the 21st century I have the same excuse, I’m busy. Busy chasing my career goals, busy seeing the world, busy maintaining relationships, busy doing nothing. However I think I can possibly use this excuse with valid reason for the past 12 months. Over the past year I have seen myself accept a promotion, pack up my house, move country, buy a new house, furnish said house, have a baby, visit x countries and play hostess to all of our family members that visited the new baby. Well okay, I was an absolute rubbish hostess … but still!
With the exception of my post last week, I have not ‘blogged’ anything since October 2016, essentially right around the time I fell pregnant. So much has happened since then and much of which has provided me with fabulous content. I have laughed and cried, been overwhelmed with joy, shackled with anxiety and just about every emotion in-between. However, a week goes by and then a month and before I know it, its been a year. And then it all seems too hard to start again.
Can I be bothered, is there any point, is anyone reading?
But it has occurred to me that it doesn’t really matter, does it? Because if I enjoy challenging myself and am setting a goal to voice my thoughts, feelings and emotions then I am achieving something by restarting my blogging journey.
Then there is the decision as to what content I focus on. Whilst I still love travelling and preferably in style, there is now a new angle of motherhood and family life. The later is currently all consuming and provides a daily mix of laughs and challenges. And the same cross road applies to all faucets of my new life as my relationships, priorities, career and travel plans are questioned whilst I try to find my feet.
So whilst much is still unclear in my mind, I am going to commit to posting more regularly. I will embrace the imperfections of life and retell my stories and experiences with my usual sarcasm which will hopefully provide some form of entertainment that you can relate to. Stay tuned as I travel the world, live a little luxe and try to get a handle on motherhood!
