I’m sure you noticed I did not post on Monday. I’d like to tell you that I have some really good, forgivable excuse, but I don’t. The truth is, I was overwhelmed and uninspired. I have so many projects I am working on at the moment, that writing a post for Monday seemed more like a daunting chore than anything else. So, I simply didn’t do it.
I’ve had a lot of things happening in my life in the past few weeks.
- I graduated from IOP.
- I had my 25th birthday (complete with party, which is never something I do).
- I became mom to a 4th cat.
- I bought my wedding dress!
- I’ve seen Harry Styles and Halsey live.
- I had an article go on Harness Magazine’s website.
I am so incredibly grateful for everything that’s happening in my life right now. So why have I been so uninspired? To be honest, the root of my website was always based on my unhappiness and my quest to find happiness. Now that finding genuine happiness is no longer such a difficult task, I’ve had to sort of reframe my website (and mindset) and what I do. It is becoming less about my personal journey and more about empowering strong individuals.
I hope you’ve been keeping up on my Support Your Friends series on Fridays. For the month of July, I’ve been featuring mental health stories and I will be featuring a new theme in August. If you’ve missed the series, catch up here.
While I still plan on documenting my own mental health and travel journeys, I want to shift my focus to inspiring and empowering my readers to do the great things that I know they are capable of. I have said this before, and I will say it forever: I want to be the resource that I wish I had when I was going through tough times. I know I am not healed completely and I will have many more struggles over the course of my life, but for now I am doing well and I want to focus on doing well. I still promise to take you on this roller coaster with me but for now, our roller coaster cart is at the top of the hill and I think we’re going to sit there for a while.
