To anyone that still finds their way to this blog, hi. It’s been quite some time since I’ve taken the time to write, or create. And truth to be told I just needed to work on myself. My mental health, my physical health, and just live for a little bit.
I started blogging in 2008; that was a really long time ago. I started because I wanted to share pictures, and I loved to write. It felt more like a job in the latter years, something that I had to do rather than something I wanted to do.
As much as we probably like to pretend that the life we had during COVID was okay, the truth to be told is that it was not okay. Not even a bit. I had to go through a lot for myself, but I also had to be there for my friends. I fell into a horrible depression a couple of weeks ago. Maybe it was the stress and anxiety of the world opening up again. Maybe it was because I had not even processed going through the pandemic. Who knows. And even though everyone has had a different experience, what we had to go through was not okay.
My mind had wandered a lot to the blog lately. I’ve been looking at it, realizing that I had so many ideas, so many things I wanted to write about, but I just never took the time and energy to do it. It was all circumstantial, and at the end of the day, I needed to do what was good for me.
I’ll be returning to my writing and picture taking. Not to talk about my life but to share my experiences. Things that give me joy and things that I think other people should know about too. A lot of my life priorities have shifted recently. I’m more into sustainability and educating myself and others about it. The way that I eat, drink, and shop has all become so different from the person I was just a year ago. But I cant wait to share more with you.0
