Hello! Honestly, I don't even know where to start, so I'll just dive in and hope this post makes sense. It's been a whirlwind of a summer, and my lack of spare time led to crickets over here. I never intended for that to happen, but with tidal wave after tidal wave crashing on me, I had to pull back and reorganize my priorities a bit. Okay—a lot. It has been the summer of up in the air and I'm not good with up in the air. I'm a Virgo: planning manic, need everything set in it's right order. So, as you can imagine I was dangling off the cliff with anxiety. I think the hardest thing for me was the facade of acting like nothing was wrong, and telling people I had everything under control. But let's get really real right now—that never works!
On top of the chaos, I also turned 30 at the beginning of this month, and let me tell you—I have never been less thrilled for a birthday. I know that's so cliche to say, but by the time 30 hit, I thought for sure I'd have my act together, and I really don't. But someone recently told me, "Anyone who says they have their act together is just lying to you. Don't believe the hype. It's not real." Those words really rang true for me. I don't need to have my act together. What does that even mean? I guess it can take on different means for each of us in our own lives. I hope if you're in the midst of unsettlement, you won't beat yourself up and believe you're a failure for not having something accomplished by X date. You are exactly where you are supposed to be right this very minute, and your circumstances and season will change when it is supposed to change.
My goal for October is to slowly transition back into new, fresh content here. Not just for y'all, but for me. I truly enjoy sharing and interacting through the blog, and have been able to meet so many amazing people because of it. So, bare with me as I doggy paddle back into a routine.
If you want to stay connected, I have been loving Snapchat for quick, fun bursts of interaction. You can also find me on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.
