re-inspired.

The last half a year has been a crazy roller-coaster ride for me personally, and little by little I lost inspiration and began seeing what I loved to do as a chore - like blogging. But regardless, I went through the motions and powered on pumping out blog posts until one day I just couldn't do it any more.
I have never been one to avoid confrontation - whether it be with other people or with myself - but along the way, I lost the energy to deal with the issues that were dragging me down.

Over the last month, I decided to take a step back and look back over what my blog used to be like, and thought back to why I started it and realised I had strayed from what I originally wanted.
But it was more than just the blog that had strayed, my life had begun to travel down a path I would never have imagined I would take, in both a good and a bad way - this all happened over a course of several years, the last 6 months served as a trigger.

When I left high school, I did not imagine that 5 years down the track that this is where I would be.
Don't get me wrong, I'm grateful for every moment, every person and every memory that has brought me here but along the way I lost myself a little bit.

After months of pushing through, despite my body and mind telling me to pause and take a breath, last week I finally took the long awaited breath that I needed.
I began searching for inspiration to reignite the passion within me.
I looked back through the blog I started when I was 15 (more an online diary than a blog - it was the early 2000's after all!) and realised I had lost my love for writing, despite words being paramount to me (a bit of trivia for you all: all my tattoos - except one - have words).
I sat in bed and read through all the writing I had done and browsed through all the photos I had taken.
It turned out my past-self was all the inspiration I needed.
