Well, that was a slightly longer break than I intended to take from my blog. I feel like that at the beginning of lockdown, everything kind of went a bit quiet, didn’t it!? Everyone began working from home and time seemed to be in abundance, but as the realities of lockdown set in, work and life in general began to return to (new) normal which has taken a bit of juggling.
So what’s new with you? What have you been doing these last few months? How have you found things re-opening and social lives somewhat resuming? I am still working from home but Kaloyan already returned to the office at the beginning of June. We have started seeing our family and friends on a regular basis and we even attended a wedding which was shortly followed by a small staycation in the mountains. I think that’s one of the things I’ve realized I really missed over the last few months. You know those little moments where you just get to spend some time with your loved ones over a glass of wine and laugh a bit too much. Your heart just feels full and you realize that this is what really matters in this world.
I’ve seen people travelling the world again and my Instagram has been full of the most wonderful views across the world. Did you travel anywhere exciting this summer? I don’t think we are quite there yet even though we recently went to a private villa here in Bulgaria with some of our friends. It will take some time to get used to the new normal and we are taking our time applying our best judgment on a case by case basis so travelling abroad is currently off the table for us.
For the time being, I have been working on developing some new daily habits for the past two months so that I can get the most of the situation. When Kaloyan returned to the office and I continued to work from home all alone, I immediately knew that I would need to make some adjustments in my daily routine. At the beginning, I couldn’t find my energy and motivation to do even the smallest tasks so one day I decided that it was time to change.
I installed the HabitBull app on my phone and wrote down a few habits that I wanted to do on a daily and/or regular basis. Being able to tick off easily something that I wanted to work on, gave me the motivation to do it more often and eventually it somehow became a part of my daily routine. I found the below quote somewhere and it really spoke to me:
“You’ll never change your life until you change something you do daily. The secret of your success is found in your daily routine.”
So, I took a look at my day and unapologetically decided which tasks I wanted to focus on and which could be postponed. One of the habits that I wanted to incorporate into my daily routine was working on my blog more regularly so, hopefully, you can expect more from me in the coming months. I have already done a complete re-vamp of my Home page so give that a look – I promise you will find some interesting bits, like my latest posts, what I am currently reading and watching and so much more. Content-wise, I am planning some really exciting posts but I would love to find out if there is any topic in particular that you would be interested in.
So how have you been? What have you been up to? Have you picked any new hobbies? Have you traveled or booked any travel? Are you back at work? How has that been? Let me know in the comments!
