who is this? is this Elena Isabelle back on the blog? is this an actual blog post? it has been so long and to be fair, it feels like I have been hovering over my blog, not knowing how to come back and very frankly how to make time to come back to it. life has been so insanely busy lately and whilst I thrive on a busy agenda, I equally need time for myself and my creativity and I haven’t taken that time lately. Needless to say that my mental health has been spiralling down. It has been a weird time lately, especially the past 6 months and I can safely say that I’m not really comfortable nor really happy which is a weird thing to admit. From someone who worked mostly from home and had a beautiful 30 hours per week job in a great interior design company to commuting to frankfurt and working 50 hours + a week to know being in a management position in fashion and never coming home before 6 pm. I know I’m very fortunate to have a job and career as well as a great support system around me, good health and a roof over my head, I just don’t feel like myself. I don’t feel content and happy.
Life has been feeling grey lately and like I’m missing myself. I don’t mean to sound ungrateful but its how I’m feeling. I feel like I have lost myself in the past months and it’s hard to get the feeling of me back. This blog has always been a huge part of being me and me being content with myself. It carried me through the hardest times and was my escape when everything got too much. It was what I would focus on when I hated my time at Uni, when I tried to figure out what to do in life and it gave me just energy and life. I’m missing it so much. I miss the community and chatting to all the other bloggers and I need to get back to it for the sake of my mental health.
so with this post, I’m making a few promises to myself; promises I need to make in order to get myself back and get my spark and energy back. I don’t want to lose myself in the mess that people call adulthood. I just want to create a life which suits me and my needs.
I hope this little ramble made some sort of sense. I just needed to get it off my chest before returning to my blog. If you are in a similar situation or have been: you are not alone. It’s okay to admit that life is overwhelming and can get too much at times and I’m always here for a chat. I have missed this place with all my heart and to be honest, I need it in my life.
