My favorite month is over 🙁 Though, to be fair, I’m not really sad to sit it go, as this wasn’t the best of the months, and didn’t really have a happy birthday as I was supposed to do. Oh well, in retrospect, I’m slowly leaving behind the shitty days/weeks I had at the beginning of the year and I’m looking forward to the rest of the year. And let me tell you, I have some really awesome things coming up! But for the sake of this post, let’s take a look back for a bit, as I/we had a quite productive month – even if it started a bit slow.
Let’s Talk About the Importance of Self Care
If you are following me on social media, or know my personal life because we are friends, you might have noticed my bitching on social media in the last few weeks. I’ve said a few times, that January was a complete shit show on a personal level. Got myself physically and emotionally exhausted, then when it seemed like I’ve got a bit of time to catch up to myself, life dealt me another punch in the face and that kind of broke me and left my pieces on the floor in tiny pieces. And although I’ve dealt with it pretty well according to circumstances, it’s going to be a long way to heal completely. It is what it is, life’s not always kind, and self pity is not exactly the purpose of my post.
How Blogging Changed Me
Back in March I decided to start a blog, mainly because I wanted to support some indie authors I got in contact with during my Before Blog life. I didn’t really expect to be succesful or even popular. I thought of it as something to play with in my free time and occupy myself with so I wouldn’t think about how boring my life is. Instead, things got crazy pretty quickly, and here I am, 5 months later, reflecting on how much I’ve changed.
Interview with Barry Kerch from Shinedown
“I truly enjoy what I love, we all do. We love to do this, we love to play for the fans, we love to create music. It’s what we do. And we still belong, we still like each other, we still ride the same bus together, we still get to dinner together. It’s a family. And I enjoy playing on stage with those guys, we have a really good time doing it. I think if it wasn’t fun anymore, we would have to stop, but it’s still fun.”
