It’s sort of hard to believe I’ve been away from the blog now for almost 6 months. It weirdly feels like it’s only been about two weeks! If you follow my Instagram, you know that I posted a little while ago about my hiatus and what’s going on in my life. Life is real, and life is messy, and it isn’t perfect, and there’s always a story behind every perfectly staged Instagram photo. I’ve never wanted to be someone who portrayed their life as “perfect”, though don’t get me wrong I do love posting pretty photos. I’ve always wanted to be as real here as possible. So I wasn’t ashamed to tell everyone that I needed a change from the direction my life was going.
But I didn’t keep my promise of posting on here once a week, though I did keep a promise to myself. I took control of my life and my business. I’m on a financial plan to get out of debt, my business is doing really well, I have AMAZING clients! I’ve gotten back into painting, it’s been such a great feeling. I’m hoping to really go places with my painting someday. And something I haven’t discussed here or on Instagram was developing crippling anxiety and stress issues since my mom passed away. For the first time in a really long time I feel genuinely happy. My issues certainly haven’t gone away but they have diminished significantly and I’m on the road to recovery.
So what does that mean for my blog? To be honest, I have no idea. And it’s sort of freeing. I always wanted my blog to be a place where I can share parts of my life, my love of fashion, and all sorts of things. I want to get back to that, but in a way that makes sense for me. I can’t do anymore needless shopping trips just because I need new content to post. It’s going to be different, but it’s still going to be me.
I do want to say that every kind word, every Instagram like, every bit of support I’ve received has been invaluable and so ridiculously appreciated. I know there are a lot of blogs and bloggers out there and the fact that you take the time to read mine means the world to me.
I’m still figuring all of this out and I’m coming back into this with new eyes and an open heart. I hope you’ll join me.
