Life update, Blog Break & 2018 intentions

A lil bit ashamed to say this feels strange. Been trying to write this post for a couple of weeks now but I don’t even know where or how to start.

I’ve been away for so long I don’t even recall how to start a post. Part of me just wants to go in with “Hey guys it’s been a while ” while another part of me wants to go cliche and insert a deep quote bout taking a break but I guess this works.

Sincere apologies for just dropping off the face of the earth for the past months, wasn’t intentional the truth is I needed a break;

LIFE UPDATE 

“You can’t pour from an empty cup”

If there’s anything 2017 taught me it’s mental health is important.
I was in a constant state of being overwhelmed and tired. Sleep was my go to medicine.
A lot of things that got me excited didn’t just seem to matter. I was tired of being tired, tired of complaining and generally tired of not feeling like myself.
Remember clearly telling someone that I felt my body was betraying me.
I really wanted to publish posts and just keep up with the blog but I wasn’t just emotionally up for it.
Thankfully I’m in a better head space  and I feel ready to conquer and co.
Currently doing my NYSC which had me packing up my life in a box (or two) and moving to my own lil space miles away from home.

BLOG BREAK & UPDATE 

I’ve quite a lot to share with you but I’m trying to ease back slowly into posting and social media in general.
Before the break introduced some new categories (Beauty Chat, Style Chat and 7 looks ) I definitely plan to keep up with em, totally enjoyed creating it.
2017 started with me wishing and trying to fake save for a new camera and thankfully I got one and this is the first time I’m excitedly announcing it lol.
I left it gathering dust but now I can’t wait to just shoot, might take some time getting used to cos it’s been a while.

2018 INTENTIONS

 “Enjoy the little things”

At the beginning of the year I tasked myself with picking a theme for the year and I ended up with CREATING AND EXPLORING

“Creating the life I want, creating the peace I crave and exploring each and every opportunity that gets tossed at me. Exploring my thoughts, my joy and my fears”

Creating the life I want, creating the peace I crave and exploring each and every opportunity that gets tossed at me. Exploring my thoughts, my joy and my fears Click To Tweet

  • I Intend to focus more on the little things and try to find my joy in everything.
  • I Intend to be consistent on all aspects of my life and plans
  • I Intend to do more and plan less
  • I Intend to take care of my body and mind, protect my peace

Happy New year and I hope this year is off to a great start.  
What have you been up to? What’s your theme for this new year??

Lots of Love,

    Welcome back Sogie. I genuinely missed catching up with your posts especially with the new segments added. I somewhat wondered and didn’t understand the long break but it all makes sense now. God to have you back and better. And yes I feel tou with those goals. This is a year to plan but do more and most of all a year to be super consistent in everything. Welcome back once again.

    Sogie! Sogie!! I’m so glad you’re doing well and back to blogging. I missed your style posts but Health is indeed Wealth. I hope NYSC is treating you okay? We wouldn’t mind reading some NYSC stories.
    Looking forward to the content you’ll be putting out. There’s so much to improve on but slowly and steady.
