Goodbye

I never thought I would have to say this, but I need to take a break. It’s not in light of recent events; I’m not trying to avoid speaking about racism. Ideally I would use my platform for sharing my opinions and amplifying other, more important, voices. This idea of stepping back from the keyboard has been on my mind for a while. Months, even. I do enjoy blogging, but not as much as I used to. This isn’t a ‘goodbye’ sort of post. This is a goodbye, for now. I love writing and sharing my beliefs, and interacting with you. However recently I’ve been lacking a healthy balance. I want to be excited at the prospect of writing a blog post, but at the moment I’m avoiding it. 

This short hiatus is going to last until summer break, I think. I hope.

Get in touch via email if you need me. I’ll also be discontinuing engagement on Instagram.

While this period of ‘reset’ goes on, I’ll be documenting it in diaries. When I come back I’m hoping to have a series lined up of Glow Up Diaries – inspired primarily by Sophie’s Corner. They will include three main focuses: fitness, balance and motivation. 

Don’t worry. This isn’t going to be my last post.

I’ll be back soon.

Lots of love,

erin x

(I wish I didn’t have to add this as a footnote, but I am educating myself on the topic of racism. Just because I haven’t shared that part of my life, doesn’t mean it isn’t going on. I would recommend looking at UnJaded Jade’s video ‘But I’m Not Racist?’ if you are white and seeking clarity.)

    • Thank you so much! I’ve decided to come on to WordPress because the buzz of notifications was a little distracting. Your kind words are greatly appreciated. Hope the new content is enjoyable to read! x
