I finally got my blog back online! I took it offline about six months ago, as I wasn’t happy with it, I was dealing with some things and I wasn’t too sure what I was doing with the blog or what direction I wanted to go with it. I didn’t really have the time or mental energy to put into it either, so I decided to take some time out from it and come back to it when things were a bit clearer and life was less stressful. The beginning of a new year seems the perfect time to get back up and running.
It is hard to believe that we are now in 2018. This time four years ago I had just left a ten-year relationship, and I thought at the time this was going to be the beginning of my shiny new life and I was full of hope. Looking back now I realise how naive that was. I had no idea what was ahead of me. 2013 to 2017 were probably the most difficult years of my life, just as I had dealt with one problem, I was hit with a ton more. From dealing with the fall out of the break-up, family bereavements, coming to terms with my son’s difficulties, having to give up college to just being broke, lonely and depressed. So life went in the opposite direction from what I thought it would, but I am glad that I got out of the relationship before I was hit with all of that as I don’t know how I would have coped if I hadn’t.
It has been a tough few years but I was lucky to get access to some counselling which helped somewhat. Now everything seems to have calmed down a bit I feel it is time to get back on track and try and improve the things for us as a family. In order to do this, some big changes will have to be made I will be posting about how I plan to make these changes in upcoming posts.
