Hey Friends! It’s me! I’ve been in a war lately within myself. Everyday I want to get up and write a life-changing blogpost, and then by the time I get done with my nonprofit work is at 7:00 most days, I realize I’m exhausted, just want some food and to crawl into bed.
It has been a challenging year for me, but also new beginnings – with a growth mindset. I started the year with high expectations and goals like I always do each year.
I was intentional about blogging and pretty much everything else as it pertained to my personal life. You see, the end of summer 2017 I had quit my job to follow my dream of starting a nonprofit org, so I rolled into Fall not having a solid plan for a job because I really wanted to hold off for what I really wanted. Sure, it was a bit scary, but sometimes life is better daring, especially if you’re not in a particularly happy place, you know?
After I lost my Dad this fall (I don’t think I’ve talked about it much here on the blog much or at all, and maybe one day I will),
I can honestly say that I’ve been going through the motions, you know? I cared about everything and nothing at the same time. In the midst of such a loss, 2017 also had its share of highs, in which I’m beyond grateful for.
If you’ve read my blog for a while, you may have noticed the consistency of my blog post experience a decline. While I enjoy blogging, I prefer not to pressure myself into blogging. I think it’s healthy to take breaks and I never want to feel like my blog has me, rather than I have a blog, you know? I do however plan and hope to be more consistent with my blog. I also plan to share more, more lifestyle content and more personable posts so you can get to know me better as a person.
I want to thank each and everyone one of you who has ever visited my blog, Facebook page, or instagram. I hope 2017 has been great for you, and cheers to the best life has to offer in 2018. I hope you’ll stick around these parts for upcoming posts.
