Hi everyone! Happy Halloween!!
I know, it’s been a little while. I don’t even know how long it has been but it has definitely been awhile.. and well. It was honestly the most well-deserved break I have ever taken.
I had posted back in July that I was coming back (?), but I realized after posting the post that just wasn’t true… I was far from ready. I stopped reading, I stopped doing everything that was bringing me joy from before. I was missing deadlines, work was stressful trying to adjust to home life, and I was in an extremely toxic and violent relationship.
I think I needed the time to realize I was in something I shouldn’t have been in, and doing things I shouldn’t have been doing. I was doubting myself and doubting my abilities to succeed.
Now that I feel confident enough to start blogging, things will be a lot different here on Tea and Turned Pages. First, this blog won’t be just about books. I’m honestly still a little hesitant on reading, so I will be posting about some things I’ve been doing and focusing on during my mental health journey, Disney posts (of course!), and just anything that comes to mind while I get back into the process of reading.
For now I won’t be doing my typical Top Ten Tuesday’s or WWW Wednesday’s, and I will most likely only be posting 2-3 times a week, not the 5 times I was originally doing (which looking back was absolutely insane to do for that time in my life), and hopefully over time we can bump it to 3-4 times, but that will be in the future.
I am happy to be coming back, and happy to hopefully see a big change in my mood and how the blog will help me advance in my life.
Can’t wait to talk to you all soon!
Lots of Love, Ali
