I don’t usually get all personal in my writing here, this is a space normally reserved for all things beauty, health and fitness related. But recently (actually the last 8 months), have been very trying and as it’s affected my blog in the last ten days or so, I feel that I ought to say a little something.
If follow me on Twitter, you’ll know that in the last eight months, I’ve suffered three bereavements, all really, really close relatives. In fact, they don’t get much closer. Rather than give up everything and wallow, I’ve been thankful for my work and writing, as a way to divert my mind and thoughts for a little while everyday, and give me a reason to get up in the morning. Even the #ALipADay challenge that I’ve been doing has turned out to be a godsend – putting on the make-up and hiding behind that “mask” has sometimes been the only way to get through the day. These last two months though, have really hit me hard, to the point where it’s been difficult to concentrate on very much at all.
But now it’s time to refocus, if only because those who have passed away were so very proud of what I do and were always so interested and keen to see my published, printed articles and my blog.
I know they are still with me, and I’m sure they are using the Internet “up above” to check in on my writing, so in their memory, let the writing recommence.
Always missed, always still with me.
