A new month, is a fresh start...
Hello again, lovely blog friends! It's been a moment, hasn't it? I apologize for my long pause from blogging, but I decided to start fresh with the month of March for many reasons.
On the lighter side, t's one of my favorite months. If you're lucky, the weather starts to get a bit warmer, trees start to blossom, and flowers start to bloom. Winter's gloominess begins to fade away and things all around seem just a bit brighter. On another note however, the reason for my pause is not-so-fun. I am not quite ready to get into the details of it all yet ( I swear one day I will ) , but what I'm willing do delve into now is bluntly this: After seven ( has it really already been S-E-V-E-N?!) wonderful years of blogging, I hit some sort of wall. My inspiration was fading for some inexplicable reason... a writer's block if you will. The truth is, I am only human and I was mentally exhausted. Life's stresses got the better of me, and keeping up with the blog I have loved for so long just was not at the top of my priority list. When I invite people to my page, I want to fill your eyes with beauty. I want to share life's wonderful moments and leave you feeling happy with those warm fuzzy feelings. But alas, life is not always that way and I am just like all of you. Boyfriends, break-ups, being completely broke, fights with friends, questioning my life's existance... as a 20 something, these are problems I face too. So while I was, let's say 'figuring my life out', I decided to take a break from blogging since my heart just wasn't fully in it.
A month later it's crazy for me to even write this because after my little hiatus, I've taken a step back, traveled back to Texas for a bit, spent the month reflecting on what i DO have. I traveled around the state with friends, reviving my mind, body and soul. No, things still aren't perfect, I am still figuring things out ( I don't know if I ever won't be) , but I feel completely refreshed. Like after a long pause my whole spirit finally hit play again. I can genuinely say that I feel happier than I have in a long time. And with all that happiness I want to share it all with you, the way I used to! I have many things planned to share with you all this March. Including two exciting trips that I plan to document fully, my beauty routines, 35 mm photography, music I am currently into, my thrifting secrets, and of course my daily outfits!
I've always said that I am trying to find beauty in everything. What I have been doing this last month is finding beauty in myself. ❤
