Back to Blogging

I'm finally back at the blogging game after a (very) busy summer and I can't actually tell you how happy this makes me.  This is just going to be a little update post about what I've been up too recently and what I'm hoping to do with my little blog over the upcoming months.  
Last summer I started a new full time (full on) job.  I work at a Christian outdoor activity centre which meant that this summer was chaotic, busy, non-stop, fulfilling, tiring, craziness.   There were points when I felt so drained that I could have slept for days, and there were times when I didn’t want days to end because I just felt so happy and content.  Overall at this stage in my life I can’t see myself doing anything other than this job because I know it’s where God wants me to be, even if there are tough days.  

I've got a lot of plans and ideas for getting back into blogging again, starting with a new design/layout.  Although this might not happen first, it's definitely going to be something I want to get going soon and it'll be a "work in progress" for a few weeks. 

Something I don’t talk about a lot on my blog is the fact that I’m a Christian, but over the past couple of weeks I’ve found myself really growing in my faith and trying really hard to build a better relationship with God.  Something that’s helping this is the online community for creative Christian women called Delight & Be.  Which is why I’m going to try and start a series on here where I talk about my faith, what Bible passages I’ve been reading, and the work that I’m doing to grow in my faith.  I’m going to call the series “Delight &” because I’m trying to learn how to truly delight in my faith. 

There’s so much music I’ve found over the past couple of months that I’m so excited to share with you all, there’s bands I’ve blogged about before, as well as some new ones, and I have a few album dissection posts lined up that I hope you’ll enjoy.   I'm really excited to get back into sharing the music that I love with you guys

Since April I’ve been attending hospital for something quite important that has been affecting me hugely.  I’m not ready to share it on here yet but it is a huge part of my life that I struggle with and I think it’s an important thing to talk about.  Although I’m not ready too, I hope that I’ll be able to blog about it soon as a way to deal with myself, but also to raise awareness and maybe some understanding about it as well. 

It's been too long since I posted something for my Becoming Your Own hero series, I have a mixture of ideas of where this series could go, I even considered ending the series.  But I don't think I'm quite ready for this yet.  A little series I started to coincide with these posts is my Gold In The Darkest moments series which I miss so, so much because it was a way for me to appreciate the little things in my life that make me happy so I'm really excited to start it up again. 

Sorry this post is more information than anything else, hopefully I'll be able to get back into blogging as regularly as I can while still working full time.  I hope you guys have enjoyed this post, I'm looking forward to writing a more 'proper' blog post for you all soon.
