Back from hiatus and changing the format

Hey dudes! I figured it was time to start blogging again. After a long hiatus, getting some life stuff straight, and thinking a lot about what to focus on, it was time to start doing something. So... here I am! When I started this project I didn't have a clear focus on what this was about. I thought I was a food blogger, simply because I liked food. Then I thought I was an Ulcerative Colitis blogger, but I hated reliving the bad moments of my life. Without a clear idea, this project ended up being way complicated than I thought. I lost my passion. I lost my focus. But I still wanted to do good and make a difference. The only way I knew how to approach it was slowly and to track my progress and somehow make it there. Even though I was confused, I did know what I did not want for myself. I don't want to be known as "sick girl", which is what I privately labeled myself for many years. It was the negative attitude and thoughts is what kept me from moving on. Ulcerative Colitis is still a very painful topic for me. I have had this illness for eight years and it still brings tears to my eyes when I think about how helpless I was. I'm not that person anymore. Its time to move on! I want my blog and videos to be about a lifestyle change. A shift on how to become positive and become your best self through positive thought, exercise, and balance despite all of the challenges (ehem... Ulerative Colitis). I'm going to share my journey on I'll get there! Let's go!

It is easy to lose your passion for life when you are sick. I decided to make cooking into a hobby, since eating out all too often makes me sick & weak, and good homemade food makes me happier and stronger. Still working on that "hobby" part, I still only want to cook for others.. and when I'm on my own I just can't be bothered :-/ Lazy? Hell yeah, but I have a nice & convenient excuse.

This is how I explain what it is like to have an immune disorder, and how it impacts on my personality:

Imagine how blah you feel when you have a flu. That feeling is actually caused by your immune system working over time, as is the foggy headed brain, the lack of interest in doing stuff, loss of your "spark", etc. Everything just feels kinda "gray" and "blah".

Well, having an excuse is one thing.. but taking charge of my life and not making excuses, that is something else. That ought to be my new years resolution. Hmmm.. In fact I think I will make that my new years resolution.
