Sometimes you have to step back from things in order to really reflect and define where you want to go. You have to really ponder what’s next and where you want to take the things you’re spending a lot of time on. It’s been almost a month since I posted here on my little blog. I found myself being so rigid with myself about working on things, it wasn’t fun anymore. Everyone says ‘find your why’. I thought I had my ‘why’ but it turns out, I need to be a little more defined and intentional.
I want this to be a place where I’m able to:
Help people – whether it be a new dog mom, a person with anxiety & depression, someone who is a broke college student like a was 5 years ago, someone wanting to travel more, or someone wanting to better themselves. I want this to be a place where they can come.
Make financial gains – I am working with this blog on the goal that one day, it can fund my dream of being a stay at home dog mom! I have recently realized that while my dream was to always be an HR rep and that I’m LOVING what I am doing. I’m finding that the 8-5 type of life is not for me. I really need more flexibility in my schedule and even though my current job is SUPER flexible (they are more than amazing!) – I’m finding I want to be more creative.
That being said, I am back! I’m ready to finish out this year and start the new year with a sense of renewal. I’m also at a point in my life where I need to give up the ridiculous amount of pressure I put on myself, simplify, and take better care of myself. I recently started seeing a therapist and she diagnosed me with severe depression. I was shocked!! I said “I don’t understand?! I literally have the best life I’ve ever had, what do you mean I’m depressed?!” Turns out depression is nothing like what I thought, but that’s a story for another post. She told me I need to prioritize my hobbies. Easier said than done when you are severely depressed, but here I am!! I may not post three times a week. It may take me a bit to get going again. But I’m showing up today and I’m proud of myself.
