Insta Roundup: November 2017

Last month, I started a new series on my blog where I round up the previous month and I really enjoyed it because I thought they'd be so lovely to look back on, to see how far I've come and what's changed in my life. However, this month hasn't been great, to say the least. So I had two choices; I could give it up already or just be honest and raw...and that's what I have decided to do, write down all my thoughts and feelings. I think it'll actually be very therapeutic in a way. Now, I know these posts aren't for everyone so please don't feel obliged to read!

November was a TIME. Probably one of the worst months I’ve ever had to endure so far. It was a period where everything seemed to go wrong, one by one. I couldn’t wait for the month to be over, hoping that December would be a lot kinder but at the end of the month, my relationship that lasted over two years ended and I’ll be honest, I’m finding it very tough and that’s the reason why my blogging schedule has completely gone out of the window, for the time being.

Breakups happen to us all. It’s a part of life, a learning curve, that can only make us stronger (we hope) and even though I’ve had relationships before, I think this is the first time I’ve been that cliche head over heels in love and the heartbreak of a "first love" is like nothing else. Right now, every day is tough and my mental health is struggling but with every difficult experience, you learn something, right? And I have definitely learnt that you shouldn’t sweat the small stuff. My camera broke earlier this month and it felt like the end of the world, I’m sure many other bloggers can relate but none of that matters when you have your loved ones by your side, they’re what truly matter and it’s important to treasure them while they’re still around. Life changes in a blink of an eye. Tomorrow you could wake up and everything be different, it’s important to remember that perspective. I also learnt that no matter what, it's so important to be kind and polite to others because you don't know what they're going through and also, it takes a lot more energy to be cruel than to be kind.

I’m now at the stage where I feel like nothing makes sense without my best friend, the person I'd always confide in about everything but all I can do now is keep moving forward (name that film!) I’m just trying to look after myself, put myself first for once and practice the much-needed self-care but when you feel completely lost, it’s more than difficult but I know I'll be okay. I had so many posts planned for this month and I’ll still try and attempt some of them but the posts will probably be less frequent as my heart heals and I spend as much time as possible cuddling my dog. Dogs are amazing and I don’t know what we did to deserve them, they ALWAYS know when something is wrong and come to the rescue. 

This post has been very doom and gloom so we’ll end on a positive. Since blogging again, I’ve been feeling really down on my blog but this month I received a lovely email from a reader and was also contacted for some blogging opportunities and that really made me so happy!

Thank you for reading, I hope you all had a better month than I did! Please be kind, December.
