2019 is upon us! We’re only a year away from the 20s.
It’s hard to comprehend how fast time has gone by. It feels like it was only yesterday that we were going into the new millennium. Throughout the years, I’ve blogged on and off usually around the big events such as New Year’s Eve. Most of them carried this sad undertone with a bit of optimism and hope for the new year…but honestly, that whole vibe is a bit too tired and who wants to read a “woe is me” post. HARD PASS.
Every year has brought its own set of highs and lows, this year was no exception. I crave to change my life…again. For the last few years, I’ve been on this journey out on the West Coast and it’s taught me so much about myself. I am more self-aware than I’ve been (thank you, next) but I wanted to own it, flip it, and share it. I wanted to embrace
the questions, the uncertainties, the doubts, the curiosity, the fascination, the endless cycle of the gossip…in the end of it all, I wanted my own place.
There’s so much I’ve wanted to say but I haven’t. There’s the build-up, the teases, and then I don’t follow through. I’ve gone over what I’ve wanted to say a million times but it’s scary to put it out there. At this point of my life, everything feels weird, uncomfortable, transitional phase as you look around to see your friends doing adult things such as getting married, having babies, buying houses. what am I doing with my life? where am I going?
In order to move forward, I want to say a lot through this blog – the good stuff, the bad stuff, the life happenings, the pop culture tidbits, and etc. I’ve always said I wanted to have an actual blog that would allow me to share how in this perfect, filtered life that we have all have online that there’s always something you don’t see. As I did some research for how to do this whole thing, the most important thing was to just start.
I am doing this for myself to figure out where I go next by being honest, looking at the past to figure out the future, and being in the moment.
Writing has always been the only way I could express myself in a way that doesn’t feel forced and the only thing that I feel I am good at.
As a wise friend said to me, “Change is coming. When you’re truly sick and tired of being sick and tired, you’re on the brink of making a change.”
If you’re stopping by just to read this – thank you.
May the next year bring you all the light and happiness you’re looking for.
Here we go…again.
