SHOULD I QUIT?!

Good morning beautiful souls,

This morning I just wanted to take a moment to be honest with you – and the truth is that I feel like I’m constantly struggling with my life / blog balance.

My problem is finding the time to not only create content and upload it, but also to interact with all you beautiful souls. I absolutely love writing my blog and there’s no way I want to quit, however the pressures that come with writing a blog weigh down on me nearly every day.

Sometimes I’m left feeling, annoyed and disappointed in myself because I have all these amazing ideas I can’t wait to share with you which make me feel that creating content should be an easy task; but when I don’t find the time to set ideas into motion the guilt just creeps in. These days all I’ve managed is to just about upload a new blog post on time, but I’ve barely even done that, and interaction?! What’s even is that?! It’s been far too long now since I’ve really taken the time to interact with you beautiful souls and blogs and for that I am truly sorry.

I know it all boils down to priorities and I could definitely make better use of my time sometimes, but socializing and having evenings to unwind are also important and necessary for me. And when I do get a day off, if I’m not spending it catching up on all the housework, I like to go out and do something fun for the day and so again time flies away too quickly. So I don’t think one prioritizes the other for me really, but as they’re all important to me I need to work on finding a healthy balance between everything.

I really admire all of you out there writing such wonderful blogs and taking the time to interact with others. So I just want to take this moment to thank you all for the continual support, even when I’ve not been great at returning it, it means a lot to me! I hope to see you all stick around and know that I am working on finding a better life / blog balance to hopefully give way to a better routine with less stress and pressure and thus a better blog.

Also if anyone else struggles with finding a balance and has any tips I’d love to know!!

Love you all ❀

MY GARDEN BEFORE & AFTERΒ 

Hello friends,

The other week my parents came over for dinner and brought me a little present. I’d been saying for ages that I needed to de-weed the garden and so they showed up with a little trowel and my own cute gardening gloves! The back garden almost looked like a little wilderness and I couldn’t wait to tidy it up! So on a sunny day off I got my fingers dirty and took out all the weeds!

After a good two hours of gardening, here are the after photos; from a weed infested garden, to a tidier, cleaner looking back yard! Although surprisingly tiring work I enjoyed myself and can now enjoy soaking up the sun again on nice sunny days!

All that is left to do now is the front garden!

Love Carina xo
