The Moment You Start to Feel Like You Again

Do you have a period in your life where you wish you could feel like you again? Of course you do. That’s because we all do. It’s called being human. There are times where we feel like we might have stopped making an effort, or making the effort is what drains you.

Remember to not lose sight of the things that make you happy and make you feel your best.

How amazing is the feeling when you start to feel like you again?

Last weekend was the first time I’ve had my hair done in three months. I went for the full pamper – highlights, cut, blow dry and treatment. And wow I feel as if I look like me again! I couldn’t stop feeling my hair to feel how much healthier it was. I didn’t care if no one noticed because I felt amazing!

Maybe I’ll get round to painting my nails some time soon as I keep saying I will…

Back to the things I love

Today is the first time in two weeks that I’ve posted on Instagram. I usually have stock of photos ready to upload multiple times in the week. But I finally got around to editing a few this evening. And with Amsterdam coming up at the end of next month, there’s bound be loads more new travel shots coming your way.

And here I am writing a blog post. You hear of many people saying that they’re “neglecting” their blog. But in my eyes, I post when I have the right motivation to do so. I don’t believe the whole “bad blogger” thing.

Exciting things are happening

Very serious times now. No more nipping in that shop to see what cute top is on offer. It’s all about keeping extra money aside for our future. Me and Danny are finally hitting an exciting step in our lives. There are months to go but we can’t wait to make a house our home if all goes to plan. As Danny said the other night as he ran and kissed me good night, “Tasha… it’s happening!”

Anyone who knows me understands how long I’ve waited for it all the start happening. I’ve been buying kitchen utensils, bathroom furnishings, and new bedding for the past two years. Yeah we’ll see different sides to each other considering we’ll be living together but I don’t doubt for one minute that we’ll ever grow to hate each other.

Being happy in the moment and looking forwards the future

I’ve learnt to ignore anyone’s comments that are nothing but positive. The future will be amazing because we’re going to make it amazing, having each other, just as we always have. We have worked so hard to head in this direction stepping closer to something we’ve dreamt of for years. No one is going to change that.

Is there anything that’s happened recently to make you feel like you again? Have you got any exciting news? Tell me in the comments below.

  1. I was on a funk the past few days but I tried getting up and finish doing my blogging essentials like media kits, privacy policies and drafted blog posts. I suddenly felt like me again.

  2. This was so refreshing to read and I can really tell from your writing how happy you are! I’m so glad that you’re feeling like yourself again. I can really relate to a lot of this post. Myself and my partner moved into our first home together in June. It’s such an exciting time and you have so much to look forward to!

  3. Awh this is such a positive and uplifting post! I couldn’t help but feel excited for you in moving into a new house… It’s such a big and amazing step!

    For me, it’ll be going back to blogging. I kept telling myself that I shouldn’t be too serious when it comes to blogging, and now that I’ve finally reached that mindset that it was just a hobby, I feel so much better for it!

    1. Aww thank you! It’s a huge step and sure does feel good to know that all of the waiting and working hard is going to be worth it.

      I can relate to what you’re feeling there. In the blogging community, as strong and friendly as it is, there can be some pressure to post X amount of blog posts, attend events, have the perfect layout and so on. But you carry on doing you and your blog will shine just as much as it does already 🙂

  4. Loved this post! I’ve not been feeling like myself recently but some exciting things are happening in the next few weeks which I’m hoping will help make me feel more like myself. There’s no better feeling that getting back to your normal self!xx

  5. Such a positive post! I am so happy for you. Of course everyone has their time when nothing seems good. But everything happens for good. well I have not had a hair cut in the past two years now. I just trim it myself hehe. But I have planned to do it at the end of the month when I will be visiting my mum. I do paint my nails often. It makes me happy. 🙂

    1. I’m glad you enjoyed the read. I believe that too, that things happen for the good. If I could trim my hair properly then I would but I think I’d make a mess of it haha. The little things really do count, don’t they!

  6. Getting your hair done can really change your mood, I finally got mine cut after a year!
    Living together is such an amazing thing, yes you will bicker but there is nothing better than living with the person you love!

    1. Oh wow, I bet it felt amazing! And I’m glad you’ve said that because some people try to bring out loads of negatives. But I totally understand that there will be bickering here and there. It’s always been a dream of ours to move in together and we cannot wait until it happens!

  7. I loved reading this! We’re currently looking for a house together and I agree it’s so exciting but also really stressful but I can’t wait to finally find somewhere to decorate how we want and call it our home! Good luck with your move!

  8. Good to hear that things are finally happening for you Tasha. Congrats on finding a house! Doing the things that we enjoy the most and relate to as well as help us achieve the goals we want is a powerful tool for bringing the best out of ourselves.
