I'm not too sure what it was that took me away from blogging but perhaps quite honestly it was a loss in passion. I stopped caring about writing posts because I didn't feel like I was writing about anything different and exclusively just commented on other people's posts instead but at one point I ended up missing a few days and faced with a big backlog of comments I ultimately just left it and never came back. While I've missed blogging and I've missed the wonderful people that I met online here ultimately it was finding a Facebook message from the beautiful Mich who was checking up on me to see if I was alright that brought me back to making this post today. It's warming to see that people have spent their time coming back to check up on me, including Tracy, a lovely lady who I wish all the best to and hope things are going well for herself and I can't thank everybody enough for caring about me enough to keep me in their thoughts. Of course anybody who wants to keep regular contact with me can still contact me over on my Twitter account @Heathyheath_ and I'm proud to say a few people already do :)
Anyway to keep this succinct and not ramble about myself too much, life lately has been extremely kind and generous to me which is a nice change after years of, without too much moaning, pain. Things haven't changed a massive amount in my situation, I'm still working at the same sports shop, I'm still living at home, and I'm still not ready to make the leap back into full time education but one thing that has changed is that I'm content. I'm able to feel like I've not been dealt the best deck of cards yet at the same time like I've learned how to play better with them and make the most of it and things genuinely are looking up again.
Another reason behind my recent happiness is that I've fallen in love with one of the most amazing and special human beings I have ever met in my life and perhaps surprisingly (read, DEFINITELY surprisingly) she's also fallen in love with me too. Feeling what I'd call proper love for the first time is a tricky one to describe but I can genuinely say that in this calendar year already I have smiled at least ten times more genuine smiles than I did in 2013 and it really is all down to this girl, a beautiful 21 year old, animal and photography loving free spirit who makes me feel more alive and happy than I ever possibly thought another human being could make me feel. We've been together for just two and a half months but we've been friends for years and in April time this friendship quickly became quite apparently something else which eventually became too difficult for either of us to hide.
Perfectly coinciding with my finding of Mich's message we actually took some photographs with each other on Saturday which I'm pleased to share with all of you
As you can see from the photographs Sarah is beautiful and I can honestly say that the only thing I know more beautiful is the human being that she is deep inside. I don't want to go on about this kind of thing too but but this lady makes me happy and I'm proud of her.
But yeah, an awful way to start any sentence but yeah, I don't want to write out too long a post right now because since I'm off today I'd like the chance to visit a few blogs and catch up on some of you, I hope that you've all been well and I want you to know that I do miss you even though I'm not around any more. I can never thank any of you enough, especially the likes of Jenny, Mich, Robyn, Doll or Al for everything they've ever done for me and no matter what I've never forgotten and never will forget all of that, stay sunny guys.
