Absence makes the heart grow stronger.

A lot of things have changed in my life over the past 7 months. The major one being my surrounding country. I moved away from home for good, I said goodbye to my friends and family in England, I started a new job, I started studying a new language, I started a blog and started a whole new life. It has been an overwhelming and incredible journey that only keeps going but this weekend I had some familiarity come visit me. My two lovely friends of England paid me a visit in my new home in Stockholm. They stayed for the weekend and allowed me to show them my favourite places, point out my bus stops and where I go to school. It was exactly what I needed. I have been giving my blog and everything a rest as my mind has been going into overdrive. I am cramming a lot into every day, working and studying plus trying to build my life more and more, meet new people and, make sure I am doing well every day and that can be exhausting. I have been having this feeling of constantly being exhausted and felt like my head was going to explode. But along came these rays of sunshine and shone a new light onto everything I am doing. They reminded me that I have created this life by myself (with a little help from my other half) that I am doing everything well and creating a whole new world without much experience. I have made friends that I know will always be there for me, I have got a contract at my work now so that I can apply for citizenship and my language skills are slowly getting there. But my favourite comment from them was ‘you’re living the Swedish gossip girl life’ and that made me so happy, I really needed to see things through someone else’s life and have a fresh perspective on everything as I had gotten myself into a mundane way of thinking and I stopped having inspiration to blog about, but that is going to change. 

I am going to do what makes me happy, to work towards the things that make me feel good and make sure that I blog towards things that are important to me. Thank you my beautiful friends for all being there for me, and Emily and Faith for gracing me with your presence. I could not be more blessed with the people I have around me and hope all of you find that feeling too xx

keyell,
I like to read stuff like this! I also feel the same, I moved from Norway to China and later to the UK! It's hard to leave some stuff behind at home!❤
