Life Through Rose-Coloured Glasses | A Life Update

Something a bit different today. An update if you will. Some news. From me to you. And from you to me if you want to share something.

You may have noticed that I haven’t been posting as much as I used to over the last few months. I haven’t talked about it a lot because I thought that it wouldn’t last. But time went by and I couldn’t get back in the swing of things.

My studies, a big move in a not very distant future, family troubles, a blog, several jobs, made pressure and stress become increasingly important and I sort of gave into it. I gave up.

I slowly realised that my lack of motivation was mainly due to the pressure I was feeling. As much for the blog as for everything else. I don’t like feeling like I can’t do something so I was pressuring myself so much that I was left unable to do anything. The more I didn’t work on the blog, the more pressure I felt, the more pressure I felt, the more I couldn’t write, and so on. A nice little vicious circle.

And it wasn’t just for the blog, it spread to everything else in my life. The more I would think about everything I had to do, the more I was stressed out, and the less I would do.

That’s why nothing’s been moving forward lately, not the blog, not my studies, nor any of my other projects. I got stuck in a cloud of negativity where I felt overwhelmed by the smallest task. But I think I’m slowly starting to see the sun.

The next few months aren’t going to be any calmer. Some of you already know, but M and I are moving to Edinburgh. We don’t know for how long yet (between two months and 10 years probably.) So combining the big move with the end of my studies, the search for a job in Scotland and everything else will be a challenge, and I don’t think that I’ll have any less on my plate than I did those past few months.

However, it’s my attitude that’s going to change. Or at least I’m going to do everything in my power to change it. I won’t let myself be crushed by the weight of the tasks, or pressured, or stressed out. Not for the blog, or for anything else.

I’ll do my best to do everything I can do as best as I can, but without thinking about everything else that needs doing at the same time, and most importantly without beating myself down if there’s something I can’t do. That’s okay.

After months of being stressed out, and pressuring myself enough to become mad, I’ve decided to let it go (I’m so sorry for the reference …) and to let things be. And to help this, I’ll be wearing my pink sunglasses more often than not, to help focus on the bright side during this challenging time.

So I wish you all the best for the next few months, and I’ll be here to say hi as often as my happiness can afford !

Have you got any plans ? Big or small. Could you also do with a pair of rose tainted glasses ?
