Hello, you.

A post of nothingness & a coffee run.

I'm going to be honest and say that I've been sat here staring at a blank screen for a while now. I have no idea what I want to write about and all of my inspiration seems to have well and truly dried up. Since launching Girls in Work, I've really changed how I view my personal blog and I decided that I wanted it to be just that. A personal blog - an online diary of sorts where I could go back to sharing my thoughts and goings on in my life without feeling the pressure of producing all of that 'sharable content'.

But, you see, I've kinda run into a problem. I've got so much going on in my life that I do want to write about and thoughts that I do want to get off my chest... but I can't write about those just yet. It's still too hard for me to think about a lot of the time without breaking down - let alone write about them and it's all probably still a little ~too~ personal for the internet.

It's been over two weeks since I last posted anything on here, which I know isn't a long time at all, but it feels like it to me. I'm sure a lot of bloggers feel the same 'guilt' - that feeling of 'I really need to write something soon and it's stressing me out that I haven't published a post recently', even though you're fully aware that no one really cares if you do or you don't.

So, here's me, hoping that if I literally just write a post of nothingness... the inspiration will hit me all over again and I'll have lots to write about. I've also had these photos sat in a blog post and ready to go since February, but never really seemed to have the right words to go along with them. So, I thought I'd just tell you the story behind the photos instead.

I took these on a deceptively chilly Sunday morning. The sun was shining in Liverpool, but man, it was cold. I had a few days off work and I'd come back to see someone who meant a lot to me. He'd been away for about a month and I couldn't wait to see him again and hear all about his recent adventures and see all of the photos and the thought of it was making me all happy.

And to celebrate, I did the coffee run. Obvs. I love doing the coffee run. Anyway, we drank coffee and chatted a lot and laughed and did all of those silly things that you do just with your best friend and it was lovely. I remember this day so clearly as it made me all kinds of happy.

That's what I always think about now when I see these photos. They just remind me of this day and it's amazing how many memories can be triggered by the tiniest of things, isn't it? I've realised that recently more than ever - a place name, a smell, a song on the radio - a million and one things come flooding back and it's always when you're trying your hardest not to think about something, that everything reminds you of that exact thing, right?

As one of my friends so rightly said to me the other day - I wish I could just hit fast forward. I wish I could just hit fast forward until everything feels okay again and I'm back to feeling like myself. But, I know that it's going to take a while, and it's going to be hard. Here's hoping that day comes around a lot quicker than I think it will.
