Life lately has perhaps been more stress than happiness, there comes a point where you realize that your life is at a crossroad. Things begin to change, and sometimes on top of the stress of work and the fact that decisions you make could well affect the rest of your life, it all becomes a bit much.
I'm a glass half full person, happy go lucky and more often than not pretty sure of the decisions I make. However, in having high goals and plans so far into the future, stress has always been an issue for me and something that seems to rear it's ugly head often. By no means do I think I'm the only person who get's stressed, but after a while it does become tiring and arguable more extreme than it should be.

Stress itself carries issues for anyone's self esteem or desire to be proactive, life is a juggling act most of the time and I must admit my circus skills have been below par recently. I've had to screen out a few things like looming exams (why I'm worried about exams that are 6 months away is evidently part of the problem) and personal problems just to put on a brave face. The last couple months, I've rarely had any time to myself between school and the various internet commitments I've assigned myself to, and you may have noticed I've stopped my YouTube channel for now due to the fact there simply aren't enough hours in the day. Although blogging itself has always been my creative outlet, shorter days make it more challenging and stressful to fill these pages with worth-while content.

I don't usually delve into personal problems like this, but I feel you need to understand this as some sort of explanation as to why I've stopped my YouTube and why my New Years resolution is to calm down and smell the flowers, regain perspective and try to attain my own personal bests instead of constantly fighting to be everything. My Christmas holiday starts in a few days, I'll be going to New York for a couple of days, and then straight onto the Caribbean. Hopefully 3 weeks away is exactly what my state of mind needs.
I hope this post made some sort of sense, or maybe even helped anyone else who feels overwhelmed from time to time. Life is a gift not a burden, and I think that's the one idea never to lose perspective on. There will always be people who make you feel not good enough, sometimes that will even be yourself, but there is a light at the end of the tunnel and any which way you look at it, the glass is always half full.

Back to regular posting next time, have a lovely (unstressful) Sunday.

  1. I can completely relate to this, I haven't found any hours in the day even to take photos, so my blog has come to a momentary lapse of anything. Have fun in NY and the Caribbean, it will be good for you to have that break :) xx

  9. So sorry to hear this, have been following you for a couple of years now and always love your snappy pieces of text. It's definitely sad you're stopping with youtube, because I find you hilarious. But if you are this stressed you're absolutely right to take some time and smell the flowers. You're still young so you'll have plenty of time to accomplish everything you want in live! And exams, can be re-sat, so chill out dude.. Haha ok signing off! xx

  19. Hopefully your holidays will help you to 'regain perspective' so to speak..to slow down and realise, ultimately, what is important to you. Hope you enjoy! Xx

  21. Take it one thing at a time. You are still young, you should be enjoying the things you want to do and once you become an adult, you'll start to have to like the things you have to do. Anyhows, always remember that you are amazing!

    Cheers!
