Hello & Update.

December 11, 2014

aIMG_9626Hello! I just wanted to say thank you to those of you still here and still reading and thank you so much to those of you who have reached out to me over the last couple posts. The last few weeks have been pretty difficult for me; if you’ve not been following my oldest and best friend died completely unexpectedly at the beginning of November. I was very grateful to have this place to sum up everything that was going on.

I’m naturally a very fast-moving, happy, optimistic kind of girl and I’m not used to dealing with sadness; it doesn’t fit me and sits awkwardly on my frame. Writing helped. I’ve lost a few readers from my sprawling emotional posts but I’m very grateful that so many of you did take the time to read and have stuck around, so thank you, it means a lot.

In other news, I can’t believe it’s December already! December is a weird month; I think every single year my gut instinct is to burn out, party and sleep. There’s that weird “must cram in everything before New Years” coupled with “it’s nearly Christmas, throw caution to the wind!”. This December I say goodbye to my lovely office, I’m going on holiday (twice), I’m planning out the whole of 2015, I’m clearing out my family home and I’m partying a lot with my wonderful friends. It’s going to be good, or at least, it’s going to happen, and I’m going to try my hardest for it to be good. Take that, December! How is your December going?

    I know, Laila, how it feels to lose people – not the beloved ones, as you know, but “friends” (in your case, readers) because of feeling sad and emotional. When I lived in a certain country and something really awful happened twice (you know what), I lost many friends because I was sad. But then you know, thinking about it now, obviously they were not my friends, and I am glad to have cleaned this area 🙂 So I say the same to you – if you lost some readers, were they really friendly? On another note, I am glad you have so many good plans for 2015 and I am so sure it will be excellent! I’ll leave now a mantra: “Positive abundance enters my life everyday, in surprising and miraculous ways” 🙂 denisesplanet.com

    Sweet Laila! I’ve been dropping by, but honestly didn’t know exactly what you were writing about. Also, while I’m being honest, the death of someone close is something I’ve (luckily!!) never had to deal with. So, though I don’t quite know the pain you’re in, I’m thinking of you, sending you love, and think you did your friend some justice in your beautiful words. I honestly can’t imagine. Sounds like he was incredible.

    I hope December is bringing you so many joyful things! Sounds like you’re staying busy with some great things (holiday- to where?? Hope we get to see some pics!)

    ♥ perfectly Priya
