Well it's been a hot minute since I've wrote a blog post...I've just wanted to take the pressure off myself and blog when I feel ready to, rather than stick to a schedule. How has half the year just disappeared?! I feel lockdown kind of made us stop in time from March, as everywhere I look there's everything dated from just before lockdown like we've frozen in time. Then here we are in the end of August and summer is almost over. Lockdown was a very difficult time for us all and we are very very slowly getting back to the new normal with wearing masks in most places, back to work properly etc. I feel like lockdown changed me massively, in regards to my creativity, thoughts and how I look at life. The time made me realise what really matters most.

Lockdown made me look at my life from a different perspective. I realised what I wasn't happy with & what I was taking for granted in life, as well as what I should be more grateful for. I wasn't happy in my job, it was taking over my life, happiness and disturbing time with loved ones. So I changed it, and I couldn't be more grateful for the fact I had the opportunity to do so and change my job in such a concerning time during the pandemic. I will be forever grateful for the fact I was lucky enough to change my job during this time. I am now so much more happier in myself, to have more freedom and just spend quality time with friends and family without being disturbed. Remember this if you are a workaholic or in a job that seems to take over your life, do you live to work, or work to live?

I also realised that I needed to slow down in life and be grateful for the littlest things. For example, spending an evening in with family, walks around the local area or the countryside, putting a smile on someones face, helping someone in need, or just chatting to a friend. I wasn't in the present moment, I was always wanting to jump to the next step and head towards the future. But the future isn't right now. It's what you do in the current moment that matters. I love looking towards the future by making plans and goals to work towards, but I really need to just be in the moment more, which I've certainly learnt throughout this process of 2020. Sometimes I just stop for a moment and realise where I am, what I've achieved and the people I have in my life. For example all these years of blogging, instagram & youtube, I've had the opportunity to be free within my creative mind and work with so many incredible brands, big and small, meet lovely people who I'm lucky to be able to call them close friends. It's the little things in life that truly matter most.

So to round up this post, I've become more grateful every single day for everything that comes my way, changed my job to better my mental health & be more in the moment. If it wasn't for the lockdown situation, I don't think I would of changed within myself this way. As hard as this year has been, it's been a blessing in disguise for us to realise the changes we need to make, especially towards the way the world works, how we need to protect the environment and how important our health is. I do hope you are all well & are enjoying life to the best of your ability. Have a beautiful day x
