Hey guys! Miss me?
First of all, I want to apologize for taking a little break from blogging. Special thank you to those of you who have continued to reach out and email me checking in and offering encouragement. I love you all, and I am so, so thankful for your support! It means the WORLD.
SO, we have a lot of catching up to do.
I feel like I owe you an explanation as to why I stopped blogging for a while. I cannot believe it has been since October!Back in the fall, I was in a strange spot. I was very uninspired because I hadn’t been happy for a long time. I was just going through the motions. I’m always very real with you guys, and I didn’t know how to be transparent about what I was going through because I couldn’t explain it to myself at that point. Looking back, it was a trip to Portland that brought me back to life. It was a sunny Friday afternoon back in the beginning of November when my friend and I drove into the city, and I felt like I could breathe again. Has anyone else ever experienced that? That wave of relief and the snap back into focus after feeling a little lost in your feelings? It seriously is comparable to the first sip of a perfectly made coffee that touches your soul.
That weekend changed me. It was the shift I needed in my world. It was in this very moment in the picture, walking along the Eastern Promenade that I found myself again. I finally had a moment of clarity. I knew what I had to do. I had to be relentless in the pursuit of everything I wanted and needed and the happiness I deserved. So I did it.
The thing about the pursuit of happiness, is that you have to get extremely uncomfortable. You have to want it more than anything else and choose it over everything. You have to be strong, you have to be ambitious, you have to know exactly what you want.
I took a lot of time to myself. I did a lot of soul-searching, I made a lot of hard decisions, and created a new life for myself. There were moments of loneliness, fear, uncertainty, and confusion, but I knew I was doing everything I needed to do in order to get to a better place for myself.
Here’s a little bit of what you missed: me finding my smile again.
Now, months later, I am back and more inspired than ever. I hope you’re ready, I have a lot to share with you guys.
I’ve missed you! It feels so good to be writing again and doing what I love. As usual, don’t hesitate to email me. I love connecting with you guys and hearing from all of you. Thank you for supporting me. I will be posting another post today and will be posting often so stay tuned!
