Making a Comeback

It's been about ten months since I last made a post on this blog, so two o'clock in the morning on my last day of the university term seems like the optimum time to write my comeback post, right?

A lot has happened in the last few months, and truthfully I was sad that my blog, my space that I grew over two years from nothing to something really special to me, was being neglected. Having said that, I think that the time I spent separating myself from social media was something that I had to do to learn a lot of the lessons that I did over this year. I like to think that I am returning to you a more balanced person, thirsty to learn and share more through this space.

Having said that, I think that those of you who are still here may have noticed in my last few posts that I had already started to outgrow the style of content that I began with on this blog. I don't mean 'outgrown' like "makeup is for teenagers, and I'm such an adult and simply don't have time for that..." *read my sarcasm* Makeup and beauty are great for some people for a lot of reasons, but my personal journey, at least for now, has moved me away from that somewhat. I find my mind wandering to very different places these days, and I think that it's only fair that as I revive this space I stay true to that: I stay true to myself.

So, I suppose that essentially this is one of those generic posts to say that you are going to be seeing a change in my content. Eventually, this will follow in a change of blog layout, and most likely a change in blog name as well, however, as of right now I don't have the time or money to carry that out. I don't want that to stop me from publishing content when I feel ready, though, so that is why I am writing this post at two o'clock on a Friday morning.

I don't have a mission statement as such for my blog right now, but one of the things that I have done over the last few months is work with a lovely lady called Sarah who has helped me to ask myself a lot of the important questions about my identity and which direction I currently see my life going in. I know that I want to inspire people to live their life in an authentic way, and to not be afraid to follow things that they are passionate about. So I suppose that I should lead by example.

I started this blog on boxing day of 2012. Here I am three years later in a very different place in life, but still with so many of the same emotions and fears, and still with the same desire to remedy that with my creativity. So with my blog's three year birthday approaching, as well as a new year, I'm coming back to this space that three years ago offered me that remedy that I craved.

Thanks for reading this. I'm looking forward to the good things that I know this is going to bring.
