Well, apart from this very first post of 2017 right here. This is sort of a fresh, new start for me and Indie by heart. Like an empty canvas, as is so often said. There's still some of my old sponsor links and other visible remains of the previous blogging, but most has changed around here - and that change will likely continue. Years have passed by so quickly and I can't believe it's been almost seven since I first started this hobby, and it's over two since I last posted anything related to material things - such as beauty or fashion. Even before that there were months of silent periods because I just didn't have the inspiration. I've actually just hid all of my old posts (since 2010 until the last two updates of 2016) and not permanently deleted everything. I didn't want to fully erase this huge part of my self expression. I will start going through everything and might even put back some, but if I do then only the best bits. x
I'm not sure if I can really blame Instagram for this neglect, but it has been so much easier way for me to pour out my thoughts and inspiration. Through my own snaps and other people's art, quotes, illustrations, photos. Telling all about my current emotions, life, relationships, home decor, little DIY-projects, fashion inspiration, food etc. with single image and short captions. I guess I just got too lazy. And after all, I did get to keep a portal to express myself somehow. But to my defense, "real blogging" used to take me multiple hours on some days. First to update this page, and to go through all of my comments replying to each of them, and to visit all those lovely people back. I guess it took such a huge bite of me that I eventually ran out of all fuel. And just like any other relationship in life, we kind of broke up. Me and this blog. And me and you.
(I'm still up for promoting small business owners here and on my other platforms such as Instagram and Pinterest. It would be so nice to get content for my future blogging. But more of that subject is to come in another post.)
So, what's up with this girl there then.
My little sister had a baby girl summer 2015 and I'm her godmother. I couldn't be more proud of that little, clever ray of sunshine. I've also been a single girl for 2,5 years now. There's been short "romances" but nothing I want to share at the moment. It's all in the past now anyways, and I can't wait to see what's waiting for me around the next corner. Okay, since someone special might read this and wonder why I'm not saying anything - I've had some joy in my days for a month now. I can't really tell you more for now, but he brings smile to my face every day.
I have two part time jobs in retail but I have considered other options than that. Some way of making a difference in this world and helping out people, being proud of the way you spend your days. Currently most of my free time goes to this massive project of clearing out and cleaning my home. Seriously, you can't imagine the kind of junk I've saved all these years living on my own! And has it really been 10 years already!? Yup.. All the useless baggage you just store for the future and carry around with you. Why again? And how the hell didn't I ever notice this. Well, I suppose there's just been other more time and energy consuming things in life. I've come to this quite common realization that I didn't fully live my life, I was just alive for the sake of graduating, jobs, and for my relationships. I wanted to do everything in my power to make the other person feel happy living with me, that I completely forgot who I am, what do I want and who do I want in my life. And I eventually drowned myself under all this unnecessary cheap stuff I hauled from internet, local stores and from my travels abroad. And also by saving all the childhood memoirs from my father's storage. There's some things you can treasure, but you do not need every little thing.
But all change is for the better now.
