So some of you may have realised I've been gone for a while. It has been nearly 4 weeks since I posted anything on my blog, Instagram and even Pinterest. While my twitter was still active I tried to limit my usage of that platform as well. It was very sudden, short but so needed. I have definitely missed it all, crazily as soon as I took a break I wanted to get back into it!
A few weeks ago, blogging suddenly became so hard. It used to be something I did for fun, something with no pressure something I just did because I wanted to help people and suddenly it just stopped. I don't know whether it was just me, but there was a sudden boom of pressure from other bloggers and more established bloggers to do better, be better and become more important. So much pressure to get big numbers of followers, earn money and get paid sponsorships etc. It was all about numbers. I hated it. I wanted my blog to be about quality and entertainment as well as a platform to help others, not something that should be a competition.
In amongst all of that life got a bit all over the place. I have my final essay to hand in, which in actual fact is really stressing me out. Education is hard, essays are hard. This one, in particular, is screwing with me. I'm struggling to stop the stress from getting to me. I have been sorting out paperwork for applying to move in with James to a new area for me. That alone is quite a big task and very daunting prospect for me.
My mental health has been up and down, round and round. The biggest strain on my mental health so far is infertility. We are reaching 1 year now, and nothing has happened and it is so very hard. I never realised just how hard it actually would be. Part of me feels such a failure, but that's a topic for another blog post.

Now I'm back. Hopefully back for good. I won't say I will never take another break, in fact, I think it's healthy to take breaks. However next time, I'll be more prepared and get guest posts and posts lined up so that I can still post some content. I have a few ideas for posts, I have some reviews to write, some things I need to get off my chest and I want to start enjoying it all over again.
One thing that has not changed at all is my passion for wanting to advocate disability and mental health. That has stayed a strong subject for me and will always be the main topic of this blog. However, I have recently branched out and found more I wish to talk about and raise awareness of. Marine conservation, social problems and infertility are just a few. I always want to slowly make a list of documentaries, books, films etc that people should see that have links to certain topics as well. It would be an ongoing thing, constantly updating and always changing.
I'm Back and ready to go!
