Life Update – January 2018
Good afternoon everyone! So I’m sitting here at the airport, just reminiscing on the last few days I’ve had. I was able to see my partner march out from basic training which was definitely an experience. I couldn’t be more proud of how far he has come since the day he joined the Australian Army just over 3 months ago! Here’s a little update on my life since January.
When February came around, I kept noticing multiple memes about how long the month of January was.. the only thing? It flew by for me! I definitely could not relate. I was pretty much just constantly working at my day job & on my blog, as well as trying to stay in contact with my partner as much as I could. I FINALLY started gaining some more traffic to my blog through Pinterest (I’ll be dedicating a blog post to just that in the coming weeks!) and have found my confidence and inspiration through writing again.
Emotionally, this month has been really hard. My partner went back to training on the 4th of January and ever since then I had been feeling extremely low, lonely and just slightly heartbroken truthfully. It’s been really hard for me to be away from him so much but I find it hard to express that because I don’t want to come across as ‘selfish’ however, I’ve been bottling it up for so long that I’m just making myself feel worse.. either way, it’s not working for me! It’s really hard to go from being able to see your partner almost constantly to not at all, as well as very minimal contact. Hopefully from here on out it gets a bit easier.
I’m curious to know, how was the month of January for you? Let me know in the comments!
Until next time,
