This winter was a time of hibernation for me. I felt the need to go slowly, spend a lot of time by myself or with only my closest people, mull things over. I slept a lot and dreamed a lot. I had ideas and plans which I carefully stored away at the back of my mind, half formed, waiting until I worked out how to achieve them. 

Over the last few weeks, the cogs of my mind have been turning, allowing things to finally fall into place. There have been some stark wake up calls and realisations, but also gentler pushes into new or better pastures. All around, in my life and in nature, are reminders that it is time to wake up, to focus. It's time to put plans into action, to knuckle down and bring all those dreams of mine into bloom. To plan the trips and book the holidays, to make the projects to write the posts. To use things up and clear things out, to move things on.

In the midst of all this, Amphora Aromatics offered to gift me an aromatherapy oil blend and burner, and I ended up with the Focus blend. I took it as a sign from the universe. The Focus blend is a warm, invigorating, spicy mix of rosemary, citrus, eucalyptus and clove. It's energising and comforting at the same time, encouraging positivity and flow, and easing anxiety.

I have been unfocused and scattered for the longest time, trying to please others, to appeal to people, questioning my own choices and preferences. At times this blog has reflected that, however unwittingly. As other things have started clicking into place, as I have realised that actually I do know best for myself and should be pursuing the things I want to pursue, I finally feel like I know what my focus needs to be.

Blog wise, I want to get back to my original inspirations of creativity, nature and fantasy. In my life in general I want to focus on my own creativity, learning, progressing, and really enjoying and experiencing where I live an the surrounding area. It's time to build the life I want and deserve, rather than complaining about discontentment and mediocrity. 

Time to focus on creating my own fairytale. 

Disclosure: The aromatherapy oil and burner were gifted to me by Amphora Aromatics, but all opinions are my own.
