They say September is the new January. Time for new beginnings..
It’s the start of new school year, new season is upon us with the leaves slowly changing colour and starting to fall, fashion month shows what we’re going to wear in Spring/Summer next year and there seems to be an overall sense of newness.
For me it’s definitely a new beginning. I am back to blogging after a long summer break. I wish I could tell you I was having too much fun this summer with no time to blog, but the truth is I just burnt out. I was working too much for too long with my full time job and giving all my spare time to blogging and social media, that one day out of a blue I just couldn’t do it any more. I felt exhausted, demotivated and uninspired.
I took a proper detox hardly looking or spending any time on Instagram, FB or any other network but it didn’t stop there. I started spending more time at home, reading books, watching movies and not doing much else which is quite unlike me. But I guess it’s what I needed.
Overall I can’t say it was a great summer for me because I am usually very outgoing and spending so much time at home (though I needed it) feels like a bit of a waste. But sometimes you need to completely switch off to realise what makes you happy.
I did enjoy reading more and that’s something I definitely need to keep up, but I also started meditating and realised how much I need my friends. I spend a lot of time on my own, doing things I like and going out but sharing it all with friends is so much better and I will make more effort to see everyone and maybe make new friends too.
And there’s another thing! If you remember my aim to do one thing every month, the goal for September was to learn something new. And I started learning French and I’m loving it so far! It’s difficult and fun at the same time, but it really makes me happy. When I remember how to say thing and say them well it puts a smile on my face. If you have been reading my blog for some time you might know that I love Paris and have visited quite a few times already. So hopefully next time when I go I can practice what I’ve learnt. I could also imagine living there one day so it’s definitely a motivation to study hard. I will keep you posted how it’s going.
How has your summer been?
Have a stylish day.
