A Much Needed Break

Hi Loves,

So I’m back from my 3 week hiatus and I’m feeling better than ever! Tell me if you can relate to this or not? Have you ever had to deal with that strange feeling when you see yourself in the mirror and you aren’t entirely sure who in the world is looking right back a you? And all of a sudden you realize just how out of touch you’ve become with yourself? Well this was me in a nutshell for the past few months.

I was living day by day just going through the motions of life but not actually living. Every now and then someone close to me would mention that I seemed ‘off’ and a few times each week I’d catch myself having a random outburst of emotions for no apparent reason. I lost touch with myself, and for that reason I needed some time to myself. It’s been 3 weeks since I last visited this blog and as much as I would love to shoot out back to back posts, week after week, I needed TIME!

Time to spend with ME. Time to be with those who meant the world to me. Time to clear my mind. Time to relax. Time to be free…Time is key—and in a time where I was feeling stuck I needed to take a few steps back in order to move forward again.

Here we are in October! Now 10 months into 2017 and I’ve realized that once again the majority of the plans I made in January did NOT work out. Bummer, I know, but it happens—life isn’t predictable. Unfortunately something shook my core to the ground last month and it caught me so off guard that it broke me down completely. A few weeks later came my birthday, and it was at that point when I realized I needed to take a break and I also needed to be with my husband.

I spent the weekend of my birthday with my mom and younger sister at Royalton Negril as a way for all three of us to escape for a bit. It was absolute bliss. Once back home in Montego Bay, I realized I needed more time. Luckily for me I’m in the Real Estate business so I can make my own hours and my partner happens to be my mother, who will happily deal with all of my transactions for the remainder of 2017. So, I cleared my diary, booked a ticket and boarded a plane a few days ago. And now here I am sitting next to my husband writing this post.

I promise to continue to share as much as I can with you via this platform and with these new beginnings in my horizon comes inspiration. Thank you for all the support, love and beautiful comments received on my last blog post. I appreciate everyone who takes the time out to visit my blog and it means so much that you all have been so understanding. Thank you. Talk Soon. Nuff Love, Natasha ♥

    I know that feeling all too well but it’s always up to us to get back on a high, figure ourselves out and move on from there. If you love to read or like audio books, check out “Eat that frog” by Brian Tracey. (That’s if you dont know it). I can email the link to the audio book. It helped me a great deal.
    PS: As usual, you look great. In love with the entire fit.
