Where the hell have I been?!?

Ummmm... What?!
Hi, my name is Krystina. You probably don't remember me seeing as I HAVEN'T BLOGGED IN FOREVER!
I'm such a slacker.

There's really no one explanation for it. 
I've just had an extreme amount of blogger's block for about a month...

I have no interest in airing any dirty laundry on my blog but I feel like there's certain things that need to be said in order for me to continue on my journey to be healthy and happy me! 
Plus- My birthday is on Friday!
There's no better time to take a giant blog sigh and keep moving forward.

So, here's what's going on.
I'm going to attempt to do this as vague but understandable as possible... Forgive me if you don't follow.
My previous chapter in life recently had some big news that I got wind of courtesy of Facebook.
And honestly, I couldn't be happier for them!
That being said- it put me in a very pensive position.

On top of that, and I realize I have done nothing but complain about this recently (and I'm hoping this post will help me stop doing that!), the person's schedule has really been a trying experience for our relationship. This may sound ridiculous, but in the almost year and a half that we've been together, things have come so easily for us that quite frankly, we suck at dealing with fighting.
I've come to find that any couple can be great when things are going smoothly. I think it's how you grow and learn in the tough times that really shows a couple's strength.

After a whole lot of thinking, here is my rebuttal to the universe-
My life may not go picture perfect in the eyes of some people, but I could not be happier with it. I am living out my own fairy tale in my own way, making the decisions that are right for me. If I get caught up in comparing how my life runs to others, I'm missing out on the amazingness right in front of me. 
Having to take life's steps when I see fit is part of the beauty of this journey being my very own.
This is my life and I fully intend to live it out precisely as I was meant to.
May have taken the better part of 25 years to get to this point but I'm beyond excited to see what's next...

Happy to be back in the blogging seat! Hoping this is the start of a lot more inspiration and that you'll be sticking around to follow this journey with me. Thanks for being so patient with me while I was gone!
Hope this post finds everyone healthy and happy!

Glad to have you back! Sometimes it's important to just step away from social media for awhile and get your bearings.

I don't know the specifics of what's made this month rough for you, but I hope going forward things start to look up and that you have a fantastic birthday! I turned 25 earlier this month and it isn't as bad as I thought it was going to be :)

I took a tiny little break recently as well. Feeling blocked is NOT a good feeling, but I think sometimes it's there for a reason. Goodness knows it's kept me from saying things I might have regretted in the long run.

And I think I understand where you are standing. I hope that your birthday is spectacular and that the rest of the week is an improvement over the past few. It's admirable that you aren't letting the decisions of others influence what's best for you. Sometimes people just don't understand that.

I noticed you were gone!

I read a write up a few months ago on how our brains don't fully develop until 25. I noticed a significant difference in being able to take control of my decisions and such once I turned 25.

Just do it. Those who are lost are probably the ones who have been holding you back!

Yes, so much yes! IC and I never had any real issues in our relationship - but recently I've been ill, I started a new job and now we don't see each other as much and it has been trying...

Le sigh, I've missed you and I'm glad you're back!
