Blog's first birthdayToday is a really special day for me and my little online journal. Last year on this day, I clicked the Go Live button and published my first post on My Glamorous Story 🙂

Yes, that’s right! Today my blog turns 1 and I am truly excited to be sharing the love with you! For the past 1 year I’ve made those very important first steps to getting the blog where I envision it to be. Even though I’ve had quite a few interruptions along the way and long periods of silence, developing My Glamorous Story remains a dream of mine. Actually it’s not a dream, it’s a goal. Because goals are achievable when you take certain steps to get there.

I’ve had a few posts starting with an apology for my silence for the past few months and I think I am truly done with apologising. Instead I would rather tell you the real reason behind my absence this time. In fact I can make a list:

  • Life happens. Nope, not really! I am being disorganised.
  • I am way too busy at work. I am as busy as every normal human being working a full time job.
  • I have lost inspiration. No I haven’t! I just truly struggle with taking photos for the blog! And I think that is my greatest issue of all. There, I said it.

On a more positive note, after slapping myself on the wrist for being naughty and not planning in advance, I do have some big news for you!

Next month, My Glamorous Story, George and I are moving back to Bulgaria. For good!

For those of you that might be here for the first time, I’ve been living in the UK for the past 6 years. This is the biggest decision George and I have had to take in our short time as a family (it’s a year and a half today – another mini-milestone, yay!) and I am a storm of happiness, sadness, fear and excitement.

Life in the UK is the only type of life I’ve known as an adult. I came here when I was 19 years old and I have been here even since. I lived on my own for the first time. I lived with friends for the first time. I lived with a boy for the first time. I graduated and became a responsible human being. I got my first job. I found the love of my life. I got engaged. We lived on our own for the first time. The first baby in our circle of friends was born. Some of those friends stayed and some of them left and we were all mourning the little loss of a happy face at the table. Suddenly, we are the ones leaving.

I start to realise that it’s actually really hard to leave your comfort zone and jump into the unknown.
As the date gets closer, my emotions get so mixed up. I think this is the first time in my life when I am truly making a risk and I am really excited about the future (and scared but that’s not a good birthday story 🙂 )

To finish this post I just want to make a few promises to you and to myself as I truly believe in the power of writing down your aspirations.

I promise to you, myself and the blog that:

  • I will find a way to do a makeover of the blog: change is always good.
  • I will take more pictures and find less excuses
  • I will start to write in Bulgarian 🙂
  • I will network more and be shy less
  • I will take more & bigger steps towards my goal

Finally, thank you for reading My Glamorous Story and being part of my journey.
I think it’s just beginning 🙂 Let’s make a wish together!

Candle

Love,
Antoniya
