Of course it’s all about me! How could it not be?!

Hey everyone. How have you been?! How have you been feeling?

I know, I know, it's been 8 months but my oh my 2020 has been upsetting to say the least.

I’ve been soo selfish lately and I don’t even care one little bit. Selfish with my time. I’ve been reflecting a lot as per (when am I ever not reflecting? Lol). Things have been so overwhelming, underwhelming, unbearable - I can really go on. I couldn’t even use 1 minute to pause and think of what to eat for dinner. I literally said I’m taking time out - time out with LIFE! I went on annual leave with work, family, friends, blogging & my business.

I love peace and harmony over anything else.

23rd March: The start of lockdown commences and I’m starting my new job. Anxiety levels has gone all the way up! Why? Because everyone gets to stay at home while I have to leave my house to this deadly virus in the air, but I'm trying to be excited, after all this is a new chapter in my life.

April - August: Equals to extreme losses. Equals to pain. Equals to stress. Equals to confusion. Equals to uncertainty. Equals to pressures from social media. Equals to financial strain.

21st September: I made a wild decision that I don’t think anyone would dare to do during a pandemic, but I had to do what was best for me. Doing what makes me extremely happy with no regrets.

You see, I rarely put myself first. (Who else can relate?)

2018 - I started with self-love, then self-care, now I’m completely selfish.

I’m unapologetically me. And I don't care one little bit.

To whoever is reading this: Don’t forget to take a long soak in the bath, watch your favourite shows or dance freely around the house with the music turned up!

We tend to forget about us and at the end of the day we have to look after us, look after our minds most importantly.

I’m off to go have some chocolate cake and custard with Desperate Housewives! Who else has been binging on this show?! Who is your favourite housewife?

Peace & Love x
