Hi guys, how are you? I hope you’re having a great day surrounded by the best readings, & of course, I hope you had an amazing Christmas. 🥰
This is honestly a very different post, one that wasn’t on my schedule, one that I wasn’t planning to do, but as you know my priority is always to be honest with you, so today I have to share that I’ll be taking a blogging break of at least 4 months.👋🏻 This is because my current job is taking a lot of my time and at another time I would have continued with the blog anyway but lately, I’ve been feeling a bit stressed to accomplish everything, you know? plus, some family issues are happening that I’ve told you about at some point 🥺, and I don’t want to be in that place again where I feel almost obligated to do everything because in the long run, and more with an activity that we choose to do for enjoyment, love, and passion, it can cause lack of motivation and the last thing I want is to bring you content that I’m not proud of… that’s not what I want to convey with my platform. 😓 So even though it’s a hard decision to make, I know that the right thing to do right now is to take care of my personal life and then come back more relaxed to really enjoy blogging 100% and be part of this beautiful and understanding community. 🙌🏻
There is also something else. This job where I currently am, is not the job that I hope to have permanently, but it’s one that I use as a means to save money and this money has a bigger purpose and I want to share it with you as well. As long as the pandemic and world health issues allow us, we’ll be moving, with my boyfriend Milo, from Argentina to Sweden next year (Stockholm, to be more precise) this will not be our final destination, but it will be a place where we’ll settle down for a while to work.❄️ This is really a huge change in our lives, a leap of faith that we want to make in order to grow and have more economic possibilities and a better lifestyle in general, not only for us but also for our families. 😊 If you yourself are Latina or know a little about Latin America you know that we often have to emigrate to look for better lives and it’s an absolute change since I’m very close to my family, but at the same time I know that it’s time for me to think about myself and pursue my own dreams, I’m also excited to give a better life to my brothers. 💞 It’s A LOT, on the one hand, I’m very excited I know this is the right decision for us and everything will be more than fine, but on the other hand, it’s the adjustment to the idea that soon we won’t be able to see our families as often and it’s a process for them too. So I’m living all this right now, guys, it’s a lot of feelings, but as always I want to emphasize the positives of having the possibility to travel, to grow, and to experience, it will be incredible. So of course with so many changes happening it’s important for me to prioritize my work at least until I save what I need. 🌟
Of course, it never crossed my mind to abandon my blog or close it permanently, that’s something that’s not up for debate for me, doing this makes me happy, I love being in my pajamas writing about books, and I don’t plan to stop doing it. 😍 This is just a period of time that I need and clearly, I wanted to share with you everything I’m going through, so you know the context of my decisions. Not because I feel I have to explain myself but rather because I love sharing with you, I know that in the comments I’ll find words of support and love, and sometimes I need them, so thank you for always being there, for every like, for every comment, and above all, for your passion for reading which many times are inspiring and makes me feel less alone since I have no friends who like to read as well, so as you know this space is incredibly appreciated and the community is part of my life for 5 years now, I’ve met some amazing people and I’m planning to continue doing so. 🤩
The fact that I’ll stop blogging for 4 months doesn’t mean that I will stop being in the community. 🥳 At the moment, I don’t feel like reading, but I know that at some point I will be reading as well, and sharing maybe on Goodreads or maybe I’ll use my Storygraph, any of these things can happen, as well as you can find me on Twitter where I’ll also be sharing a bit of what I’ll be reading. I’ll also take a few minutes to check out your posts, because you know I LOVE to do it, so you won’t be able to get rid of me so easily, I’ll be there to support you. 👏🏻 👏🏻 👏🏻
I know I wasn’t able to finish my end of the year posts, but well, I know that when I come back I’ll make a summary of that and we’ll talk a little bit about my 2021 bookish in general, ok?
Sometimes life surprises you with good and sometimes bad situations and you have to do what you can as a human being, so from my little place I would like to tell you not to be hard on yourself, we do what we can with the tools we have and that’s always enough. I love you deeply, you’re wonderful so get out there and show what you’re capable of creating and giving to the world.❤️❤️❤️
Adios! See you in 4 months! 😘 ( maybe after April lol )
