Girl, I have missed you. Have you missed me? I hope that was a yes! I have literally disappeared off the face of the world to some of you guys, and I will tell you why, because you know I keep it 100% with you.
Oh and sorry about the random post yesterday! I am still investigating what and how?!!! I didn’t write or post it! Gosh, people want to give me grey hairs! I was looking at my blog like WTH is this!!??! Spyware! Jesus take the wheel!
Anyways, I am going to lay things out in a different way, so that it doesn’t seem like I am moaning through out, although who doesnt like a good moan sometimes?! So here goes!
The Challenge (end of Feb/Beginning of March)
We have just moved houses and getting things set up has taken a lot longer than I thought. Living out of boxes was hella stressful, and I didn’t take any days off work which was a mistake on hindsight, so I was getting burnt out.
Lord have mercy and take the wheel! My skin has been acting up at the moment. Probably because of the stress, but lord have mercy! My ezcema has flared up, spots are appearing from nowhere, my hyperpigmentation has zero chill right now. So if Im honest, I didn’t feel the urge to take pictures, else I would have had to filter the hell out of my pictures which I couldn’t be bothered to do.
Yup, my wig looks like a birdsnest, it is actually embarrassing! Did I tell you about the time when my wig got caught in the air vents above my seats in the airplane and I bent down! Yup I exposed my dignity! I put the wig on as soon as I could but I could tell there were witnesses to the crime against humanity!
The TRL App:
I want this app to be good, no scratch that I want it to be awesome, great and everything else. But let me tell you something, it takes WORK, a lot of work both physically and mentally. I became stuck on what my next action points were, and I started to feel slightly depressed about the app and the amount of work I had to do. I could see my vision in the horizon but I didn’t know how to reach it.
With all this going on, no wifi at home, stress at work, I didn’t feel like blogging. Blogging for me has always been my thing to go to when things are stressful or I just wanted to do something other than the norm. But for some reason blogging started to feel like a chore, another thing on my to-do list.
The Breakthrough (now)
We have finally settled in! Hurrah! It has been tough, and there is still things to do, but we have finally started enjoying our new house, and my daughter loves it. The hard work has slowly started to pay off. My daughter has now settled into the area, going to the farm and the library and when she is happy, I am happy. Oh yeah and my hubby got a new job which we had been praying about for 4 years! He is happy there as well. Thank God!
I have started investing more time in my skin again, because I realised that the stress was not helping. I have started drinking water, eating better and getting some sleep and I have started seeing the difference in my skin! I have also gone back to the gym and started working out again. I put on alot of weight when I was feeling down because I tend to comfort eat. But I want to change all that, so I am taking baby steps to regain control of my weight and my emotional wellbeing.
Still a work in process! Haha! I will hopefully sort that out soon!
The TRL App:
So much has happened. I have launched my website so you guys check it out and share www.trlapp.co.uk.
The feedback has been great and I am so happy with it, even though it stressed my life! Marketing is happening as we speak so continue to watch this space! I have changed my social media to reflect the app and produced business cards so it is all ticking along. Don’t get me wrong, it is still incredibly hard to do with everything else going on, but I prefer my ‘hard work’ to be making my dreams come through than living an unfulfilled life.
So what is the reason for me laying out this post like this, its because I am learning that with every challenge there is a breakthrough. The moment you feel like you can’t take it anymore, the answer comes, so hang on in there. Your breakthrough is coming.
