After a little over two weeks away from Instagram, Bella Hadid is back.

The model wrote that she started her 2021 away from social media to "reflect and learn about myself in a way that would be too much to explain at the moment."

"The memories and fortune I came back with are pure wisdom, a closer relationship with myself & my spirituality, a sense of self-love that I have always lacked, a few great friends, and these books that saw me through," she shared, along with photos from her time off.

Among the photos she shared were a picture of the books she's been reading (Kahlil Gibran's The Prophet among them), photos of healing crystals, and a picture of herself horseback riding.

Since her post of a V Magazine photoshoot on Jan. 5, Hadid had been radio silent until yesterday.

"I found myself, my strength and my light again," she wrote in her post. "I am only here to be an instrument of peace & love to help people that suffer and hopefully the world, in time... Thank you to my angels who have supported and have continued to love me, for me. You saved me. Take time to get help for your mental health. It's worth it to get to your full potential."

On her Instagram story on Thursday, she shared a photo of a CNN newscast from the inauguration, writing that the ceremony was "the absolute best news to come home to."
