Life Update

So one of my most recent posts before this little “hiatus” I took was my New Year’s Resolutions, and one of them was that I would be writing more. And then life happened…

So this blog is my baby and my passion project and I never intended to neglect it. But since around Christmas, there has been a lot of change that I’ve needed to process. I’ve had some really dark moments in my anxiety as well and it made me feel like I couldn’t contribute anything positive or helpful to this blog. In retrospect, I should have been blogging about that too because anxiety really is so multidimensional.

So in my time off, I’ve gained a niece who is the most beautiful little girl, but she just couldn’t wait to be in this world and is spending some time cooking in the hospital. I’ve also changed jobs – well, finally gained a career which I never thought would happen. It’s an incredible job with lots of learning so I’ve had to dedicate myself to that. I’ve also been spending more time with friends and having fun, which as you probably know by now, is REALLY hard for me.

This is the first selfie I’ve taken and published in a long time. Huge step for me.

So now that I’m feeling a little more settled and have ideas floating around in my brain, I think it’s time to get back to this. I hope you jump back on this journey with me and we can all heal and inspire each other.

Your friend,
