25 Sep Is this a midlife crisis?
I’ve been scarce online and in real life. I haven’t been THAT active on social media nor have I been writing. It’s been a trying year and I think most people will agree.
Not the trash fire of 2016, but I feel like most people that I’ve spoken to are emotionally drained.
My personal life is going swimmingly, but I’m at a cross roads in my professional life. Not sure if I’m going through a midlife crisis or if I’m busy going through a metamorphosis.
I can’t really pinpoint which way I need to go next and that’s really messing with me. My biggest thing in life has always been that I know myself and what I want. Well, that is shifting, and I need to sort that out.
Not only am I struggling to make decisions, but I’ve also been hiding out from friends and events this year. To those friends who keep having a whatsapp and social media relationship with me – thank you. Thank you for being there for me and just a chat about silly things means the world. It means you haven’t given up on me. I’m trying to be better, but it’s a process.
It’s as if I’ve gone into a figurative hibernation of sorts and waiting to burst out of my cocoon spreading my beautiful new wings.
The less I experience, the less I write, which means that the blog is also suffering. And I apologise for that. I am making more of an effort to apply my mind and to produce good content. I’ve always been of the opinion to not put out rubbish, and thus I’ve not put out anything in a while.
I started a veggie and herb garden which is proving to be therapeutic. I’d recommend anyone to start one. Not only is it soothing, but I am already harvesting things like spinach, lettuce and coriander to enjoy. I planted some lavender to attract bees, but those are yet to come. Reading is an old love of mine, and I’ve made an effort to get back into it again this year and I’m loving it.
Here’s to being more inspired and motivated going forward.
