Oh boy, it's been almost a month since my last blog post. It's been a while! It's Friday afternoon, I am back in Bristol after taking some time out and I had an overwhelming urge to write a blog post. Not about anything in particular but just to write and connect.
You may or may not have noticed that I took off up to Cumbria pretty sharp-ish after my March Yoga Retreat. Matt drove the whole way from Devon to Cumbria, for which I am hugely thankful because I was in no state to drive myself. We arrived at my family home a little after midnight on the Sunday, exhausted and emotional.
I lost someone who I was very close to. He's been a huge part of my life for all of my years on this earth - my Grandad. Or as I called him - John. You see when I was born he felt he was far too young to be called Grandad so he insisted that I called him John and so I did and all the other grandchildren that followed me did. He passed away very suddenly at the age of 87. He lived and full and beautiful life but it still hurts. It's all very raw at the moment and I still cry on a daily basis so one day I may write more but for now I need to keep it all close to my heart.
I took some much needed time out, not to do anything in particular just for some time out. I'm back in Bristol now and very much looking forward to getting back to teaching my weekly classes. Yoga is a huge part of who I am. It keeps me grounded and allows me to process everything that I am moving through in life.
I'm going to be focusing on blogging when I can. Sharing things which I love with you guys. Creating new content for my YouTube channel and just generally sharing my life. I'm very much in the process of finding a wedding venue for our Spring 2017 wedding so I will be sharing the highs and lows of finding the perfect venue with you all - it's been much more stressful than I imagined but I think in hindsight it wasn't the best idea to allow myself to look around wedding venues the week after my Grandad passed away. Emotions were running high!
Now I am back home I am over-hauling my beauty regime as much skin is looking dull, stressed and tired with everything that has been going on and I must admit I have let my healthy plant based eating slip big time. But that's okay. It happens.
The things we move through in life always happen for a reason. It's okay to feel sad. It's okay to be quiet. It's okay to take time out to take care of you.
