Hello! It’s been awhile.
As you can probably tell, this is the first blog post I’ve published in about 4 months. I could just say that I’ve been “super busy” but that wouldn’t be the truth. Even though I’ve had a lot going on, we always make time for the things that matter most to us. During the past couple of months blogging just wasn’t my priority.
Unlike when I first started my blog, I felt stressed and uninspired when it came to posting. I didn’t know who I was and therefore knew that the person I was online wasn’t really me. This went for most areas of my life and is still something I’m working on. I’m sure many of you can relate. I create different versions of myself depending on the audience. Tailoring my thoughts, ideas, and emotions to please the crowd before me. Afraid of being honest in fear of who I really am being a burden on the people around me. I never thought I was worthy of being myself. I took this long break from blogging to reconnect with myself, fall back in love with who I am, and allow myself to open up to being vulnerable.
I have realized that when you make yourself vulnerable by being honest about who you are, it is an act of love. An act of love to yourself and to those around you. In my experience, connections are best made through allowing yourself to be vulnerable and I want to bring that to my blog. The people I admire most are the ones that bare their souls to the world, subconsciously inspiring others to feel more comfortable in their own skin. I have so much admiration for their honesty and the trust they give to the world as a result. I want this space to be honest. I want to be my authentic self because I deserve that, just as all of you deserve to be your authentic selves as well.
I’m excited for this fresh start and for all of the new content I’ll be sharing with you. Along with my fashion and beauty content I’ll be posting more lifestyle related posts with topics ranging from mental health to body image. Thank you so much for taking the time to read my post today and I hope you have a beautiful weekend!
