[bigletter]I know I have been away for so long from my blog and my social media but I am slowly making my way back. As you all know I suffer from severe anxiety and depression, and last year, like for most people world wide – 2021 was a horrendous year.
My anxiety and depression was at all time high, probably the worst it has been been in a very long time. I stepped away from all of my social media platforms as I started to really compare myself to so many of the amazing, gorgeous influencers and started to believe that I wasn’t good enough, I wasn’t prettier enough, and that I wasn’t thin enough. This was a first for me and I can’t believe that I allowed myself to feel or think that way… it got so bad, that I didn’t even want to be intimate with my husband.
My self-confidence went on a downward spiral, and more than ever before I lived inside my head and criticised everything what I did wrong, how I looked and/or what I kept failing at on a daily basis. I lost the person who I was.
And as if COVID-19 wasn’t bad enough still affecting the world in 2021 – for my family personally; my husband was injured at work and had to have surgery to his shoulder which meant he had to be off work for all of 2021 to fully recover (he still is off work hoping to return in the next month or so). And to top it off, our beautiful beloved furbaby son, Tiago passed away unexpectedly – which we are still trying to heal from. He was just pure perfection and the love of our lives.[/bigletter]
Anyway, moving forward I have been doing a-lot of healing internally, spiritually, getting back on my feet, feeling stronger and finding that balance again. I’m rediscovering all that I love, and what makes me, me.
I can’t wait to show all of you guys what I am planning. Stay tuned!
Happy New Year, let’s pray that 2022 is a good year for everyone. Stay safe, xoxo
