HELLO 2018 | Better Late Than Never + Where Have I Been?

Where have I been?… and what’s brought me back to blogging.

Hello2018

For everyone who was actively following my posts noticed I suddenly vanished from the blog scene completely. No heads up, warning, or update on what happened and after all that time it was exactly what I needed.

Let me be honest… at first, in January 2016 I started slowing down because I was having a hard time balancing my personal life, being a full-time mother, and blogging altogether. What I loved became a chore, something I didn’t genuinely feel like doing, and a high-stress factor. I wasn’t happy with myself at the time which made me lose complete motivation and passion for my hobbies.

Fast forward a few months later, I wanted to come back and try to pick up from where I left off hoping the inspiration would just come to me. So I go to log into my account… incorrect password… I tried again… no use. Then I go to reclaim my password only to realize that my email had been deleted from a very bad hacking experience I had at that time (so it’s important to be secure online) which didn’t allow me to do a password reset. At that point, I was beyond frustrated and started to give up complete hope on my blog. I considered creating a new one so many times but because I was so heartbroken over the loss of this one I never got around to it.

So what happened from Fall of 2016 to now? Let’s break it down.

  • I continued to do Instagram for a while reaching a whopping 7000+ followers!
  • Worked on and off with my Youtube channel (which I also lost motivation for at the time)
  • Had great collaborations and opportunities with brands I worked with
  • At the end of 2017, a lot of massive changes happened in me and my children’s lives
  • As of October of 2017, I took a full break from social media altogether to focus on regaining control and happiness

One night I was looking through my keychain passwords and came across the one for this site (face-palm). I couldn’t begin to tell you how excited I was to sign back in and continue this journey. Now here I am and its February 2018, I’m feeling motivated again and really missed my blogging platform. Looking back at all my old posts and content I see how much growth has occurred since then and now I’m excited to continue to keep sharing with you!

It sure feels good to be home.
