R & R.

It's currently 2am in the morning and I am sitting here with my just washed hair in plaits, just listening to some relaxing music. I wanted to do a blogpost of a more reflective kind. I hope you don't mind.

Recently, I've been going through a lot of difficult things. Things that are very personal and have pushed my blog and YouTube to the side and with good reason. I felt, for quite a while, that I was fading further and further away from myself and turning into this robot who has to keep pushing herself. At some point, it was clear that I needed a break.

I went over to England to visit some family and only was it then, that I realised how much I needed that time away. I had barely any communication with those outside of the little town I was staying in and to be honest, it felt amazing. I never thought I would say this, but having that distance from everything internet, really helped me to recover. It made me realise how much family means to me and that we should never take anything for granted. I got to meet 2 of my baby cousins for the first time, reconnected with old cousins and was able to be 100% myself.

I'm not the type of person to preach cliche sayings but it's quite true..La Vie Est Belle.
Life really is beautiful. It's definitely not easy or perfect, but it can be beautiful. Holding my 1 month year old baby cousin for the first time, it was truly special.

Having that time away, has helped inspire me and I am looking forward to blogging until my heart's content!

I hope some of this made sense! Haha
Until next time..
