Waves

As you might know my world has been turned upside down the last couple of months. I’ve got to know myself even better than before and know that I have my limitations. And guess what, that’s totally fine! The only struggle is to learn those limitations and get to know what triggers them so I can adjust and keep on going. Lately that was really a matter of easier said than done but the last weeks things have run a bit smoother. I learned the power of rest and to say ‘no’ once in a while. Nobody is a true super human and can do all the things they want at once. So give yourself a break and some peace and quiet once in a while. Before you know it might be to late and trust me, you don’t want to hit that brick wall as hard as I did.

Every time I had to get out of the house felt like a burden, as if I was about to walk half a marathon even though I only wanted to buy some groceries.

The longer version of this story is only available in Dutch, I’m sorry. But just so you know: it might take some time before Blackbirds&Blossom is totally up and running again. Right now I really, really need to take care of myself.

Vintage Friday will be my place to let you get acquainted with my vintage finds. Enjoy!… Continue reading
