On Losing My Way In The Blogging World..

I lost my way when it comes to blogging. I'm not afraid to admit that right now. When I discovered I had lost my job a few months ago - merely weeks after announcing my pregnancy - I panicked and immediately began cultivating sponsored opportunities to help us cope with the potential damaging loss of my wages.
 

I went for job interview after job interview - each of them coming back negatively. In fact, one job kept me waiting over a week for a letter in the post telling me I hadn't been successful after telling me they'd be in touch over 5 days earlier by phone. Everything felt a little bleak. I was finishing my contract at a job I adored with no way of staying, and getting doors closed in my face each and every time that I tried to claw my way out of the hole. I remember speaking with a colleague and reminding myself "when one door closes, another opens - when it doesn't, it isn't your door".
Even Pinterest worthy quotes weren't helping me, really. Every day was a chore, having to smile for people (my friends, who weren't to blame for anything so I couldn't begrudge them a smile) and keep on chipping away at the wall of unemployment facing me.

Last week, I managed to secure something. I can't explain the relief, the pure unadulterated relief that I felt - not just for me, but for Mike and our little one too. Because of that, I felt I could sit back and study the opportunities hitting my inbox from a different perspective - I didn't have to take that post, if I didn't need to.. We were going to be okay. I don't have to look at the payback I was going to get, over the actual relevance of the post anymore.

I do apologise for the last few months, and I want to reassure you that I may have wandered off of the blogging path - but my feet are firmly planted back on the path for the right reasons now, and this blog will begin to blossom once more.

Thank you for your patience,

Tilly xo
