This sweet little blog of mine has been so neglected. I can't seem to figure out how so many of you manage your blogs, your relationships, your careers and parenting. It seems impossible. I have really struggled to find a happy medium while juggling everything. Thus, the reason for my absence. I am getting it together. Slowly but surely.
I turned 27 in September and I have spent a lot of time reflecting on how much I have changed and all the things that I have learned in my 20's. It has been one hell of a ride so far. I have been up and down. Had my heart broken, broken a heart or two, made some life long friends, rid my life of toxic people and things and changed more than I could ever put into words. But what I have learned the last few weeks is that I am always growing. Constantly learning and changing. I'm not even the same person I was 6 months ago. And I think that's how it's supposed to be. If you aren't growing, what are you doing? How can you be a better version of yourself if nothing ever changes?
I think we spend our whole lives getting it together without really ever having it together. And I am okay with that. I refuse to become complacent or settle for what I have in this moment. I have so much to offer this world and if I don't continue to grow, change and push myself, how will the world ever see that? I'm going to be honest and tell you that I have had some really bad days. But I have also had some really great days. I wouldn't change any of it. I am so thankful for the people who were placed in my life, even if only for a season. People can show you things about yourself that you can't see. I am thankful for those who have called me out, stood up to me, told me when I was wrong and held me when I cried. It's so important to have people who are so raw and real with you. The people in your lives can encourage change faster than anything else. I am focusing on being intentional. With my time, in my relationships, with work and even on this little blog.
So here I am, spending my days getting it together. And I couldn't be happier. I'll talk to you soon, bloggy friends.
