A Look Back… Bella and the Apartment

I can’t believe it’s been a month today since I had to get a new car. In a few weeks it will be a year since I moved out of my apartment and living with roommates now has been great, but it’s not the same. To say that I feel confined is an understatement, but all the while paying cheap rent makes me feel like I’m doing alright.

The one thing I do miss about my apartment is all the natural light I used to have. All the way from the living room, to my bedroom, it was wonderful. I would certainly draw the curtains when I wanted to sleep in, but when I wanted it to be bright and cheery, it wasn’t hard to do.

Aside from that, I definitely miss my independence. I know I had the option to move back with my parents, but I didn’t want to move back to my hometown. My hometown is quite boring, a family town and I just don’t feel like it’s home anymore. I feel like an out of towner anytime I go visit.

Even though a part of me felt like a big failure that I was in my thirties and having to start over back to square one, I just knew that I had to overcome this so that I will never again go through this. Like they say, a setback is just a setup for a great comeback.

When I do get my own place again, I want it to be open, bright and comfy just like the pic below. The rest are some home decor inspiration that I would love to incorporate for my comeback-humble abode.


Have you been through a setback? How did you make your great comeback?
