I have posted a text on my Facebook page while I was in Bali, but I wanted to post it on the blog as well.
It should allow you to understand a few things about the year that has just past. It’s really important to me to share this with you.
It is finaly time that I take some time to explain a few things to you.
I dont really know where to start or really how to explain it buy I deeply feel that I owe you some explanations.
I haven’t been much present on the blog for the past year or so. I went from posting 5 times a week to a quiet one time a week.
I dont think it’s either fair to you, my readers, or to the number of collaborations in which I promised I would post about and never did.
Now, why did things turn this way? Well, I got lost. Lost in the way my life turned around, lost in a world of parties, and nightlife.
Last December (2013) I lost the job I had for 2 and half years. I was already working as a bartender but it became my full time job (by only working the weekends thought..)
As I’ve always been a party girl, it quickly took the best out of me and my life became a big party. It was fun, of course, but quickly pushed me away from what was really important to me: my family, my closest friends, my goals, my blog,…
I did not recognize myself anymore but it was hard to admit.
At some point though, I did realise this was definitly not how I wanted to spend my life and that I was losing some precious time.
A few months ago I made some changes and things got a little better but I was still working at night pretty often and my goals were still going nowhere.
I took the decision to completely stop my job as a bartender a few weeks ago. It wasn’t easy because a part of me still loves it, and I consider my colleagues almost as a family, which makes it hard to leave. Even though I know it’s for the better!
To start fresh, and the new year on good bases I decided that I needed some time apart from my everyday life. And I chose Bali.
I’ve been here five years ago and I had never seen such a peaceful, welcoming and loving place.
After two weeks of being here I can tell I’ve made the right choice. I haven’t felt This good in a very long time. I have still 10 more days so my blog will still be on hold until then (I decided to leave without my laptop to be really disconnected)
Once I’m back the blog should start again and with more updates. I’m also very excited to share my best tips from Bali with you, this island is just so magical!
Until then I will keep on posting photos here and also on my instagram @lucievd
I’ll share a few of my photos from Bali now, but in the following days I’ll share with you my best tips and a good recap of my month spent there.
