My life is hectic right now. Between trying to pretend that I have my shit together, being really busy at work and trying to have some form of a social life, I am burnt out. I’ve lost my inspiration for this blog, I’ve lost the patience for hours of crouching in weird positions trying to make the most of the natural light, and I’m fed up of opening this page and being disappointed with what I see.
My problem is time. I spend 8 and a half hours at work a day. I have two dogs that need two walks, a house that needs tidying, food that needs cooking and then by the time all that’s done, it’s 9pm and I’m crashed out o the couch, ready to drag myself to bed to do it all at 5.30am the next day. It’s hard, and I’m struggling to keep balanced.
I started Hannah, Dolled Up when I had a lot more time. My job has changed, I got another dog. My other half works 12 hour shifts, sometimes through the night, so I’m on my own quite a lot. The past 20 months have been a roller coaster. When shit happens, you better believe it happens in threes. Because it’s been pretty much nonstop since July 2014, it’s easy to get burnt out.
I don’t feel like I have the time or energy to keep this blog going. Normally, I’d try and be really positive, and say something like “I’ll be back on it now, hiatus over!”, but the truth is, this time, I really don’t know when I’ll come back. I will, because I really do enjoy bogging, when I have the time to spend on it. It could be next week, next month, 6 months. But I will be back.
So today, instead of working myself up thinking I should be getting some posts written or taking some photos, I’ll be in bed, with a cup of tea and laptop, and just enjoy my time off. Maybe it’ll give me a chance to find my inspiration again, maybe I’ll just catch up on Castle.
But I’ll be happy, and relaxed, and that’s what is important to me right now.
