Recap of my week 48 & 49December 06, 2015
In week 48 I tried to refrain from my laptop and phone as much as possible; enjoy life outside of the Internet and not be available 24/7. Life goes a little too fast for me at the moment and I have been taking huge steps in my life lately, which are irrelevant to talk about on the blog, but which have taken quite a toll on me. Even though they are good choices. I needed to sit myself down, have a chat with myself and tell myself that if I continue on this path I will slowly burn out. My body is showing some scary effects of stress (stress can make it look like you have the most horrible diseases) and I work hard to set this straight.
I also cut a few ties with my old hometown, a place I really don't want to visit anymore (despite having my lovely family there) as it's a town that gave me one of my biggest traumas. I was still seeing my therapist in my old hometown, but since this year he opened a private practice in my (and his) hometown, Zutphen. I decided to transfer to his practice and continue the trauma treatment I receive from him there. Finally no more train rides all the time.
This was also a week of festivity. In the Netherlands we celebrate Sinterklaas and I celebrated this with my family in law in the desolate town Ijzerlo, which has only 160 inhabitants. Ben has nieces and a nephew who all still believe in Sinterklaas, and they were so enthusiastic when the big bag full of presents arrived. It reminds me of me and my younger sister when we were that age. I was terrified of Sinterklaas.
In week 49 I worked hard on my food blog, which I will be continuing in Dutch. The reasons for this I explained in a post on that blog. This week it also started for the first time with a post in my own language. It will cost me quite a lot of followers, but I have thought long and hard about it and this was my choice.
Without further ado, let's see what my week looked like.
