Hello everyone!! So, if you noticed I’ve been very MIA from blogging and I took some time from bookstagramming too. I’ve had some difficult times on the second semester of 2018 and right now my family and I are going through something very hard. I say it’s the hardest thing I’ve faced in my almost 30 years of life.
I know I don’t talk about this kind of thing much in here, but I have anxiety and it only makes what I’m going through harder, so I needed some time off.
If you have anxiety, panic attacks, or depression you know what I’m talking about. In normal situations it’s already hard to deal and to talk about it, but in difficult times it gets so much worse! I’m still trying to process everything that’s happenin and how I’m feeling…
And right now, I finally feel the need to come back to my blog and my bookstagram. And I decided to do it with a whole new attitude. At the moment, I really need the distraction and escape they can bring me. So I’m back, even if it’s only for terapeutic reasons.
I have a bit more time at the moment, since I had to leave my intership so, I’m also doing some editing and proofreading work on top of the translations I also do.
AND on top of all that I also want to FINALLY go back to writing. But that’s not something I can do soon, I’m still mulling the ideas over.
I don’t think I’ve ever talked about this in here, but growing up I’ve always been “the girl who writes”, way more than “the girl who reads”. Since I learned how to read and write when I was 4 I’ve wanted to be a writer. For some reason I lost that part of myself and stopped writing about 10 years ago and right now I really want to go back to it. I have a lot of book ideas in my head and I might even finish some of the stories I started writing years ago. Who knows?
I also have a lot of ideas for the blog and my bookstagram and maybe this will be the year I finally start my bookish business. It’s very hard to get out of our comfort zones, but it’s also exciting and I’ve been inspired by some friends to do it!
I’m still not ready or prepared to do all of that, not with everything that’s going on, but I feel like 2019, despite the rocky start, will be a year I’ll finally find myself again. At least I hope so.
I don’t know if you guys pray, but if you do, please keep my family in your prayers. And if you don’t, please send some good and positive energy. We can use all the positive and healing we can get!
And thank you for all your patience with me in the last couple months!
