I just wanted to write a quick post to explain the absence of blog updates in the last six months. I had been working really hard on the blog up to my trip to Nicaragua last September. All the hard work paid off when I was short listed for the Irish Blog Awards. I was delighted to have reached my goal and took a break while I was on my travels. When I returned I found that my focus had shifted slightly. I began a yoga teacher training course when in October and since then most of my energy has been going towards that.
Initially I felt a lot of guilt and stress at neglecting the blog, as I struggled to juggle my full time job, as well as working on the blog which is very time consuming, as well as yoga practice and study, as well as working on my other goals and not to mention finding time for a social life and relaxation!
I decided to just go with the flow and do what felt right. I allowed my work on the blog to slide for a little while. Many people asked me when I would be updating it or if I had given it up. I didn’t have an answer for them but I knew that there was no point in working on the blog if it was becoming stressful or a chore, whereas it had begun from a place of passion, creativity, fun and excitement.
In the last couple of months I have been missing blogging, and my enthusiasm and passion for Natural Fuel has been returning. I have a lot less time to dedicate to the blog compared to what I had last year but I am planning to continue! I am hoping to design a completely new website in the coming months. In the meantime I will be posting new entries here when I can and I will be active on social media.
I am really looking forward to interacting with the blogging world again and seeing where life will take me (and the blog) next! :-)
