It’s been a minute, okay…several minutes…. or months…. or years, since I’ve sat down and written a blog post. The reason for that absence? It’s simple…..life.
The last time I was consistently blogging I was in a such a different place in my life. I went abroad, I put down the blog, and picked up the internships while finishing out the last year of college. The pressures of impending adulthood put me in a creative standstill. I didn’t have the time to devote to anything other than “the grind” that life can be. Right after graduation, I jumped into the deep end with my first “real world” job and although it’s been rewarding, I’ve known something has been missing.
I’ve learned more about myself in post-grad life than I ever did in four years I spent in college. In the most recent months, it’s come down to a simple realization about life. It’s not always about what you have to do, it’s about what you want to do. With that being said, it’s time to turn the lights back on to things I want to do; this blog being one of them.
I feel like I’m coming back older, wiser, and more refined. We live in an age where everyone wants to be heard, and I miss contributing my voice to the conversation. That doesn’t mean this blog will change drastically from before, but that does mean I’m interested in giving you a little more than just a catalogue of what I wore. I still love telling people about an outfit I wore for
the entire day from start to finish a twenty minute photoshoot, but I want to use my voice more this time.
The goal is not only to reconnect with old readers or welcome new ones, it’s about devoting more time to my passions, creativity and writing! So keep following along as I dive back into the blogging pool.
