It’s been two and a half months since I last wrote anything for my blog which is odd because it doesn’t feel as though it has been that long, If I didn’t see the date in front of me I’d swear it had only been a few weeks. Summer passed by in such a whirlwind, it feels as though I blinked and suddenly it’s September 25th, 2018. I had an incredibly busy summer, I lost my amazing Grandad after a ten-year battle with Alzheimer’s, turned 27 and undertook several new projects that are going to bring a lot of positivity and joy into my autumn and beyond.
Summer became a very transformative time for me as losing Grandad sparked a series of changes in my personal life that led to me becoming a much stronger, more empowered, liberated woman. Grief affects everyone differently but for me I think the relief of knowing that Grandad isn’t suffering anymore turned it into quite a positive experience. It doesn’t mean I don’t miss him, or that I don’t still cry when I remember certain things, but on the whole, I turned it into a positive rather than a negative and the effect that it has had on my life has been immense to say the least.
Whilst I can’t quite believe that we’re almost at the end of September already I am also very glad, autumn is by far my favourite time of the year. I am slowly beginning to see those delightful autumnal colours sneaking back into life and everywhere is starting to adopt that more cosy feeling again and I absolutely love it as you may well be able to tell by the falling leaves on your screen! If you’re reading this at a later date you may not see the lovely leaves falling down your screen and if that is the case them I’m sorry for you as they’re really rather charming!
I have so much that I want to tell you all about but I don’t even know where to begin quite honestly and so I’m going to end this post here and endeavour to post something new each day hereafter to bring you all the updates that I have and also just to chat with you all and get back to doing the thing that I love most of all, writing!
I can’t tell you how good it feels to have had the time again to sit down and write, this summer really has been a manic one to say the least. I have given a lot of my time to other projects that of course I have loved every minute of but now, sitting here writing this, feels like coming home to me. It doesn’t matter where in the world I am, when I’m writing, I’m home.
