Hey, huns! I hope you're doing great and that 2019 has treated you well so far c;
This is the journal that no one asked for, where I reflect on the last year and give you the explanations you didn't ask for either Let's keep it short and sweet: 2018 sucked.
It was a terrible year for me in so many many ways. It started alright and everything went downhill on March when I cought a man attempting to get into my house at night and there was a gunshot in the distance. That same weekend one of my cats died. It took me a month to leave the house on my own and I spent months being unable to fall asleep before sunrise, nevermind the constant anxiety and stress. I won't go into any more of it but you can see where I'm coming from. Then I started a bunch of projects, finished like a 1/4 of them and I pressured myself beyond what my strained mental health could handle. Long story short: burnout
and more health issues than I can count. Today I saw my therapist for the first time in years and BOY was it freeing. Between now and March I'm starting a couple of much needed treatments to correct all the damage 2018 left behind.
SO, this year is all about taking care of myself. I'll be getting back into the projects that interest me and not the ones that I know will bring more people to my gallery, I'll focus on developing new styles and just falling in love all over again with my work.
I'll have some interesting news to share in March (don't want to jinx it) and I hope some of you stick around for this wild ride. I'll go on vacations in February for at least a week to just forget about everything and have some me time. I'm excited for that!
Yeah, that's why I went MIA and stopped replying and posting.
Things are changing just... give me until mid February to put myself together.
If I have any words of wisdom to share with you all it would be: take care of yourselves and, with a bit of work, things will get better.
See ya' soon!
