Let’s Talk

I started blogging in 2007, and fell in love, it was a great way for me to meet people (I’ve made so many online buddies), but it was also something to keep me busy, and that it did. I truly feel like having this space kept me sane and grounded during the hardest time of my life. However, life is always on the move, and that’s a good thing! If it’s not changing and growing then what’s the point?

While I’m not saying goodbye to this space just yet, I’m definitely taking a step back for now. I just don’t have the time to spend hours on a post like I once did, or even think of ideas to talk about anymore. Blogging is not an easy job, and bloggers spend a lot of time and hard work creating content. I work a lot during the weeks, and when I’m free on the weekend the last thing I want to do is get on a computer.

I’ve been toying with the idea of doing fashion posts or vlogging, it’s actually something I’ve wanted to do for years. Most days it seems there’s just not enough hours in the day and I feel like I say tomorrow every day, and that times just never gets here. So with time I hope I can get my schedule more situated and learn to organize my time to be able to do everything that I want.

On a better note, I just wanted to tell everyone that has reached out to me this year, thank you so much from the bottom of my heart, I’m actually really happy and my life is working itself out. For the longest time I never thought I would be happy again, and I had almost given up on the thought, I can’t even begin to tell you how much I appreciate the little things these days. Thank you all for reading this space through the years and being a friend when I needed one. I’m trying to live one day at a time and not think too much about the long run for now, sometimes all the plans kill the joy of life itself.

    It’s so hard to find time to blog with so much else going on. I’m in the same boat. I love blogging but I just don’t have the time and I never seemed to make any headway. I’ve enjoyed visiting every now and then, always enjoyed reading your posts. Glad you are enjoying your new job and all the best. See you over on Insta! x

      Oh, you’re so kind. I know, I’ve always enjoyed it too, but really, it’s so much work and everytime I try to post I never find the time to give it what it needs and end up saving it for later, but later never comes.

    “Sometimes all the plans kill the joy of life itself” You said it so beautifully and so right. I’m truly happy to hear you’re happy now. I know there have been tough times for you there, and I’m proud of you for not breaking and taking it one day at a time, instead. I hope we can hop on a Skype coffee date one of these days to catch up.
    I’ve been working hard to put my business on auto-pilot so I have more time to live more and plan less.
    If you ever start vlogging or posting about fashion elsewhere, make sure to update us here. 🙂
