Hi guys! I’m so SO so excited to be writing this inaugural post. Wait...why do I feel like I’ve written that before? Oh...because I had written that before on my previous, now defunct, blog. So what gives?
Let’s just say that life has a way of putting exactly where you ought to be. The last few months have been a bit crazy but for the sake of brevity I will be succinct. I had been trying to give 100% to too many things and as you know, that math just doesn’t add up. Between a demanding freelance writing gig, trying to get an event planning company off the ground, blogging, a full-time job AND, most importantly, being a mom and partner, I was literally running myself ragged. It was very exciting to be working on all these cool projects but my excitement quickly turned into anxiety as I realized I had bitten off way more than I could chew. In the midst of everything, I knew in my heart that writing and creating content was what I really wanted to do. I had an 'a-ha!' moment and realized...if people are paying me to write interesting content, I should just focus my energy on writing and creating content for my own blog. YAY!!
Of course, a seamless transition would have been too easy. As I started to put everything in motion for the launch of this new blog, I began to have some health-related issues which then brought on a serious case of health anxiety that put everything on the back burner. Now that I've been given a clean bill of health I can get back to focusing my energies in the right places. I had been waiting for months for the perfect time to move forward but I have come to learn that there is no such thing as the perfect time. You just have to grit your teeth and go for what you want. (deep breath) Sooo...here I am...again. Sometimes we need that false start to refocus and come back better than the first time around.
In light of my fresh start, I thought it was fitting to do a complete overhaul. I had decided some time ago that I wanted to re-brand my blog to include more visual content but still staying true to the aim of the blog which is to share with you in a way that is relatable, enjoyable and, hopefully, inspiring. I've got some really cool content coming your way so stay tuned!
To everyone who has been supporting and encouraging me...I can’t express how much I appreciate you. It was hard to start in the first place but to start over is equally, if not more intimidating but I’m so excited! Here we go! Again! ;)
Love and Light,
