It's been a while since I've posted, which may seem odd to you if you're a regular reader and know that I typically post 3-4 times a week. The past month has been days of constant struggle. No, not with any outside force, but with myself. I never realized how hard it would be for me to become an adult, but it is. I've been asking myself so many questions regarding what do I want to do with my life, and where will I be in a year? In five years? This blog comes into play because I need to ask myself what it's doing for me. Is it helping me to succeed in the life I want to live? Has it been bringing me joy or taking it away?
To answer those questions, I needed to take a step back. My main question was, if this is for pleasure, am I pleased with it? That's been such a hard question for me to answer because although, yes, I do love the act of scheduling and creating posts, right now I'm craving something with more meaning. Right now, the internet is filled with recipe after recipe and diy after diy and I feel like a tiny minnow in a huge ocean of resources and my voice doesn't matter because everyone else is saying the same thing. But I know that I have something special to offer and I want to share that with others. I'm still working on figuring out what that is and I'm unsure of what that will mean for this blog. I do want to keep this as my space and to share with my readers some wonderful things.
I want to say a special thank you to all my wonderful readers that contacted me during to quiet time to make sure that I am okay. The short answer is: yes, I'm doing great. Thank you so very much for your love and concern, it means the world to me.
