It’s been a little while, hasn’t it? And just when I’d gotten into the groove of being consistent!
Though blogging may have been a little sporadic this month, there’s one thing that I haven’t neglected & that’s journaling.
With this year being an important one in terms of PhD, work and personal life, I’ve needed something to keep myself from feeling all too overwhelmed by it all.

More recently though, the more consistently I commit to journaling, I can honestly say that its contributed to my overall wellbeing.

It’s almost been a month since I wrote my last little happiness post & more and more as I constantly keep saying & feeling. Life just seem to be whizzing past.

It’d been a while since I’d actively faced a few more of those pesky fears…
Fuelled on post-birthday enthusiasm I set about starting afresh.
So ,more for my own records than anyone else’s, here’s :
It’s been a bit of a mixed month post-birthday to the present! However, I’ve also realised it’s been a while since I’ve documented what I’ve been grateful for this week & since it’s a little goal I’ve wanted to keep, there’s no time like the present to get right back into it!
