Where Have I Been?
Helloo friends, acquaintances, and strangers
First off hi I'm alive! Soo I haven't really posted since September and I'm here today to kind of explain why as well as tell you what's been going on in my life lately!
So back in August, I launched my blog. I was really excited and ready to take on blogging weekly as a part of my routine. I've always been passionate about self-love, productivity, organization and improving my overall health and lifestyle. I soon found that the topics I wanted to blog about were things that I hadn't completely incorporated or gotten ahold of in my own life. Long story short, I still needed to get my shit together, ok! So basically I didn't feel authentic blogging about these topics when I wasn't living what I was preaching. This then limited my options on what to write about because I wasn't developed enough in the areas where my passion lies. This then led to being uninspired.
Soooo what did I do to fix this you may ask? I lived my life for me. I spent a lot of mornings developing a morning routine that I could eventually stick to every day (still a work in progress bc life is hard!). I did a lot of soul-searching and really asked myself "Who am I?" "What type of lifestyle works for me?" "What inspires me?" I've pinpointed my bad habits and I've learned how to set realistic goals. I've focused on growing internally and becoming a better person, and this is what made 2017 one of the best years of my life.
I am not perfect in any areas of my life, and I still have sooo much learning and experiencing to do, but the difference is: I now look at that as a privilege instead of a chore. I'm sure many of you have seen this quote before, but it's too relevant to this post and time in my life to not include it "I am learning every day to allow the space between where I am and where I want to be to inspire me and not terrify me" Because of this I've gained sanity lol as well as self-peace, which is giving me the strength to get back to doing something I love, which is writing.
Something I'm really going to try to change going forward is being more personal here on my blog. I'm much more at peace with myself and my identity! If you have anything you'd like to suggest please message or leave a comment, whatever works!
I feel inspired and motivated. I have so many things I want to cultivate and continue in 2018. I could not be more excited to see what changes and experiences the new year brings me.
As always thank you for reading and Happy New Year!!
