I've been gone for a while and I honestly didn't think I was going to ever touch this blog again. I had become stagnant. The creativity was gone. I had nothing left to say. I felt this blog becoming superficial and it wasn't bringing any value to my life. It felt like an obligation rather than a celebration of my passion for... fashion and beauty or whatever else I was compelled to share with you at that time.
This entire year I've really been taking the time to discover myself. In the midst of it all, somewhere, I got really lost trying to salvage a younger version of myself, thinking that that was who I still was: a girl who conformed with the world, who really enjoyed fashion and wanted to make her voice heard even if she didn't know exactly what she wanted to say yet. People really enjoyed it and that was my identity. I had attempted to transition into other things, but my efforts weren't fully developed and the passion behind the writing just wasn't there anymore.
But I was reading old blog posts and thinking about how I didn't even make it to my three year Blogiversary and I just felt God tugging on my heart. There are so many things that this year, and really the last three years, have taught me and I'm starting to put the pieces together. I am broken, but I am loved and I finally have something to say. Anyways so I'm reading and then the story stops, and I just thought to myself, "The story doesn't stop there. You have so much more to say and a unique and important voice. Where's the rest?".
Then I started writing a post about 10 Ways to Live a Happier Life to which I realized I could literally write an entire post about each one. So that's what I'm going to do! It may turn out to be more than ten we shall see. Will they come out in a timely manner? I hope so. But I want to craft something special and genuine and really get it right this time.
I'm excited to see what happens and I thank my friends for encouraging me to start this up again and share my story. I hope all of you are well and are never forgetting to - Stay Fabulous.
