Am I Back Yet…?

Hi there!

Is this thing on?Β 

It’s been a while… Do I even remember how to blog?

I hope life has been treating you all well, I really miss everyone and reading what you’re all up to. I am hoping I can start posting at least once a week, whatever that may look like, starting the new year. This year has been difficult for me trying to balance my personal life with work. Taking time for myself has also made me feel guilty because I so badly want to create and at the same time I feel like I need to rest.

I recently had a few chats with friends from work and also Stephanie from Things With Stephanie Ying, check out her blog by the way, and I’ve come to the conclusion that I truly do miss creating, taking photos and documenting it all for the blog. It was my one true passion and it makes me feel awful for feeling like I’ve gone and left it all behind. Not by choice. Work has more than consumed my life and I do not have a set schedule like a normal person, and also work weird hours. But here I am, still trying to blog whenever I have the chance to.

After all these years, blogging is still one of those things that I do not want to leave behind. I think I have been writing posts like this since last year and I’m sorry if it sounds so repetitive. Me leaving, me coming back, me apologizing, and doing it all over again. It’s not for the lack of trying, believe me. Lots of things have surfaced internally, and I think I am also trying to cope with all of it and trying to figure out how to balance my emotions and not struggle with my anxiety and depression. Changing jobs has definitely helped with my mental health, but I want to really do more than just manage it. I want to eat better, I want to exercise, I want to have a healthy sleep cycle, and I also want to do all the things I love.Β 

So this upcoming month will be a bit weird because I’m going to be working a lot, but I am also going to try to figure out the things I want to post about, that you have not seen yet from me. I have “traveled” a bit this year and I want to show you all of that. We also have a new family member I want to introduce here. It’s going to take some work from me, lot of trial and error, but I will find a rhythm to keep posting and I’m sure this motivation will help me produce content that is much better than before. πŸ™‚

Some content you might be seeing from me soon-ish;

  • travel posts
  • makeup posts (on my other blog)
  • life posts
  • bullet journaling (I really*Β  want to bring this back)
  • and more…!(?)

I want to thank those of you who still follow me, those who still talk to me and check up on me on aΒ  regular basis. You guys are amazing. You all make me want to keep this hobby of mine, because I know it means something to you too.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

  1. Rossy!!! So happy to see this post! I have missed you!! It can be so hard to balance blogging with everything else in life- but I so resonate with how it can be so awesome (and needed) as a creative outlet. I have learned too, with my fair share of dipping out and coming back to my blog, that people that blog β€˜get it’ and are usually so supportive!! Do what you gotta do for you, and we will take what we can get from ya πŸ™‚ Can’t wait to hear about your recent travels!!

  2. I’m just now getting on and it’s nice seeing a few posts by you on my feed! Hopefully you aren’t racked with too much guilt for not being on here lately but are thinking of this year as a way to refocus and realign the priorities in your life.

    I look forward to all that you will share soon! So nice to hear from you again. I hope December treats you all well and I look forward to being on here more as well to see what you’re up to. xx β™₯

      1. Hi, Rossy! January has gone a bit wayward for me with blogging. Hopefully I can shake it off and work on posts to share next month, and be more exciting. We haven’t really done much this month, so I’ve been a bit of a bore!

        I appreciate you trying to keep up through Instagram! I’ve been spending more time with it, but I’m trying to figure out a balance my time between there and here.

        I hope you are able to take some time and be a kid again! This adult stuff is really bumming me out. πŸ˜ͺ I can’t wait to read your posts and catch up! Happy belated new year to you; I hope it’s treating you well so far! β™₯

        Same here, finding a good balance is hard. I’m trying to juggle too many things LOL i’m not being as productive as I thought I would be doing by now. LOL
