So the time has come for me to take a break from Dreaming Pretty and blogging.
A lot has happened in my life over the past couple of years, with a very recent life change also, which has changed me as a person into someone who I feel like I don’t really know anymore. This has really put a new perspective on life for me, which has made me want to change certain things in my life and just do things differently. I have enjoyed every moment of the last few years creating and building Dreaming Pretty but recently over the past few months it has felt more of a chore than a hobby and with my new found perspective on life I feel it’s too short to be doing something that you no longer 100% enjoy.
It’s not been an easy decision to make but I feel it’s the right one and I feel it will give me freedom again. It sounds silly but I ended up getting so obsessed with the theme of my Instagram for example that I wouldn’t post a picture of my friend and I at the thought that it would disrupt this and honestly I just don’t want to think like that anymore. My weekends and evenings for the past few years have pretty much always been taken up with writing blog posts and photographing products and I’ve even missed out on family and friend opportunities for the pressure of getting a blog post written ready for the next day.
I have made some great friends through blogging, ones that I would still love to keep in contact with, and also learnt many valuable life lessons and tech lessons. And from my blog I have found my love for photography which I will definitely be carrying on but just no more beauty product photos! I love getting out in nature and going for long walks with my dog Minnie so this is what I really to focus on for my photography skills.
So I just really wanted to say a huge thank you to all of you lovely people that follow my blog and social media channels and it was because of you guys that kept Dreaming Pretty going for so long. But it’s now time for a new chapter and I’m excited for what lies ahead, so thank you and hopefully I can still stay in touch with those that want to over on Twitter and Instagram.
