I don’t know what it is about this blog, but I could never “get into it“. I did have sporadic moments of enjoying it, but I could never keep the momentum up. I found I was constantly having to force myself to work on it which puzzled me for so long because I used to love working on my old blog. The problem was I would always make plans for things to do and posts to publish and then I just wouldn’t for whatever reason. My days were a constant cycle of putting things on the back burner, “oh I’ll do it later“or “I’ll do it tomorrow“. Nothing makes you feel worse than constantly promising yourself that you’ll do something and then you don’t. I completely lacked passion and interest. I thought it all stemmed from my boredom at home in Ireland, so when I moved to Abu Dhabi I assumed I’d have so much more inspiration. What I found instead was a lack of time to deal with the blog and with that I let go of the guilt and the constant feeling of not doing anything.
After thinking about it for some time I’ve decided to step away from this blog. I’m not saying that I won’t ever post on it again, I might, but only if inspiration strikes. I have managed to pinpoint exactly why I don’t like this blog and I’m already working on a new project that I’m actually excited and passionate about, so keep a weather eye on my Twitter @DanielleLouiseM and Instagram @daniellelouise32 over the next few months!
