Dear blogging | Dear 2017

Thank you for being here for me all the time. During hard times blogging was my outlet to be happy, be in my own world and to pull myself together again. This blog is like my little world where I get to write/talk about the things that I want.
This year to shall be three years since I’ve properly blogged. I haven’t been very consistent with it but I still love it a lot. There were times were I refused to go out with friends so I could blog – talk about dedication. 3 years is a long time, especially for me who tends to get easily bored and move on the something else in a lightening but here I am, still here in 2018.

It is social media side of blogging that I fell out  of world. Seeing the same overexposed and over edited shots and the bots and all. I love Instagram for finding cool new blogs and creative people, the more unique ones that is like a breath of fresh air among the same-y ones. Before, I could have easily spent half the day on my blog Instagram, whereas now I rarely go on it. I even had a theme back in the day but now I just post random pictures that I’m like “sure”. I remember when I used to take a lot of time taking pictures, editing them into a theme and all. I don’t know, maybe I’ll start doing that again. I even deleted snapchat. I rarely go on Facebook. I mean, if the world was to end tomorrow, I wouldn’t know at all.
I have let my blog take a bit of a backseat but I am going to try and blog at least once a week but I won’t pressure myself. I’m just going to enjoy, blog when I feel like it rather than force it. Write if I want to say something there and then rather then strive to make it perfect with the pictures with perfect lights and such. I am still going to write though, like always. Writing is a part of me.

2018, I am excited. I have been saying a lot that this is my year as it is the year of the dog and I was born in the year of the dog. Although my perfume obsession is getting out of control, addiction is still there.
2017 was already pretty great –
I slightly got over my fear of water and got back into swimming.
I published my poetry book.
I went to a new country.
I worked with amazing brands through my blog
I found the perfect coat
 and so on…

Abraham Lincoln
2017, overall has been great. It has. I am grateful for it. Very grateful. Although most year has been great so far, from what I can remember.

For this year I didn’t actually do any new years resolutions which is very unlike me, as I always did that but I just decided whatever I do, all the choices and decisions I will make will be to make myself happy. It is slightly selfish but it’s my life, I am the one living it and we all should put ourselves first. Our feelings are very important! Always, always, always put that first.
“Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions.”
Dalai Lama XIV
Wishing you all an amazing 2018!
Lots of love.
