Just Give Me A Reason?!

Hey Guys!

I hope you are all doing well!!!

There is a big reason why I have been so distant and refrained from posting lately!

I feel I owe an explanation to you readers, seeing how much you have supported me and cheered me on even in the most difficult of my ventures, I feel it is unfair that I just stopped cold turkey without any explanations!

During the past few months, I have gone through a number of changes in my life, from career to love to perspective, every piece of what I knew for the past years have been completely changed, why? Because I am not a spectator of my own life but an active participant!

These past few months saw me pushing my limits and nearly destroying my comfort zone! I have been experiencing so many different things and so many different experiences thanks to the people I have surrounded myself with!

I have learnt that everyone comes in your life for a reason, to teach you something about yourself or teach you how to handle certain situations!

Another valuable lesson I have learnt is that Happiness is a Choice, you can choose to be unhappy or be happy, it is all about perspective! Yes, certain things may be better but they could be worse also! The important thing is that I choose to be happy and not let outer factors influence my happiness!

Some of you may not be religious and I do refrain from talking about these things on my blog, however, these past few months saw me taking my spirituality more seriously and finding a new sense of peace!

Why am I telling you all this?

Due to all these experiences, my focus and priorities shifted towards me, loving myself and being happy with myself! Unfortunately during this time, I felt that the blog was in the way of achieving all that, that sense of happiness and peace!

However, after a lot of deliberation and a great conversation with a great friend, I realised that my blog was indeed important to me!

Although I am still in a place where I need to see to other priorities, one of them being my Choir which I am now more involved in, my blog will be revived and you can expect some posts in the coming weeks!

However, I will not post everyday like other bloggers since that personally to me, makes the blog seem like a job and not like a hobby. I am not dissing anyone who does post everyday, but for me personally, I know what I feel and I know what I need to do to revive my passion for blogging!

Thank you all for your support, some of you even for the support you have given me personally during this period of limbo so to speak!

I love you all!
