As I was putting together some new travel posts from my recent trip I thought I would talk about a few things before publishing them. Nothing serious but I wanted to share some thoughts and goals I have for the rest of 2017 and hopefully early 2018. Without sounding like a broken record I’ve went through major changes in most areas of my life within the past few years. I’ve recently spent a lot of time focusing on myself and ticking off huge goals from my bucket list.
Over the past 18 months I have found it challenging to maintain my weekly blog posts, get in front of the camera and all round make the effort. I could tell you a million reasons why I haven’t but I’m finally in an amazing place and ready to take responsibility. Personally, I don’t see the point in blogging if I’m not able to truly enjoy it so I’ve taken time to get myself together. You all know my previous history and now I’m 100% on the mend (I’ve made a few lifestyle changes i.e; healthy eating & working out) and now I’m so EXCITED for what the future holds!! After my upcoming Summer adventures (you can read them here) I’ve some serious decisions to make – like whether or not I want to stay here in Ireland or move and start a new life abroad.
You may remember that at the start of last summer I shared my experience of living with Chronic Anxiety (you can read it here). It took me quite some time to open up about it as I was feeling embarrassed. Eventually I built up the courage to talk about things and I sought help. Once I received my diagnosis I spent further time building myself back up and moving into a more positive place. After sharing everything with all of you I felt a huge sense of relief and gratitude as you were all so kind.
Last week I shared my experience of living with Chronic Anxiety and I just want to say thank you for all of your beautiful, kind and supportive messages. It meant so much to me that you took the time to reach out. I hope it helped any of you who experience any feeling of anxiety or worry. Opening up about everything has taken a huge weight off my shoulders, I feel like I can finally relax and focus on moving forward. I know I still have to stay on top of my anxiety and I’ll have days when I question things but life is like a camera…
I’ve been going back and forth with this post for a long time. I never really get personal on my blog but when life’s obstacles get in the way then I feel it’s time to address them. Before I get into things I don’t want people to think that this is another blogger and her sob story. I don’t feel that I’m sobbing, doing this for attention or following in the footsteps of others. I put myself online regarding fashion, beauty and lifestyle but today’s post is a little different. For me to be a serious blogger I feel that it’s OK for me to let you know a few things that have impacted on me. If I want to achieve the best in life and also for the Niamh Kelly brand, then from time to time I will share what’s going on in my life.
