Life has been going at a whirlwind speed lately and I barely feel like I’ve had time to catch my breath. I have no idea how busy this year was going to be when 2017 rolled in 4 months ago. My last Currently post was only two months ago but I feel like a lot has happened since. I have a lot to report.
Hello, friends! How are we doing? All I can say is that I’m glad it’s March – even if it’s over half way through. I don’t know about you, but I’m finding that this year is going so quickly! It’s been long overdue since I have done a Currently post, so I’m here to give you a little update on what’s going on in my life right now.
HELLO, I’M BACK.
Hi friends, it’s been a very long time. Did you think that I would never return? To be honest, I wasn’t sure how long I would be away for. So much has happened in the past few months and I can’t wait to share it all with you in specific posts, but for now, I’m bringing you my third installment of THJ Currently to give you an overview of what’s been happening.
I’ve really missed blogging and I want to be able to use this space to not only encourage others but also document my life so that I can look back on it one day and see all that I got up to. That’s something I’m definitely going to change now that I have more time on my hands.
Sometimes we need to take a rain check and stop to evaluate where we are. Back in January, I decided to start updating you with what’s going on in my life right now. This is different to my Happy Journal because while through that series I’m focusing on the positives and looking at life with optimism, my Currently journal is serving as an ‘anti-Happy Journal’ to document how my life is really going. I don’t want to portray myself as someone who has everything all figured out and it wouldn’t be very intentional of me to hide the bad things from you. I don’t want to dwell on the negatives but it’s just as important to acknowledge them so that you can move on without all that baggage.
I used my trusty friend, Pinterest, to help me come up with some ‘currently’ prompts in order for me to open up about the things going on in my life right now.
I thought that I was finally getting organised. I thought that with the launch of my new blog and filling up my editorial calendar with lots of ideas until April, I had arrived. However sometimes life gets in the way and, unfortunately, I have a case of the January blues like I’ve never experienced before. I have no motivation right now and getting up and going into university has been the hardest it’s ever been since I was cured of my PTSD.
I also had to make the decision to take a step back from my blog and concentrate on my university work for the time being. As many of you know, I had a whole Four Week Blogging Challenge planned out and I’ve not completed this at all. I don’t think I’ve even done half of the prompts. This is really disheartened me because as a result, I’ve had a lack of motivation for blogging, and it’s the only the fourth week in of THJ. I feel like a failure.
