I am about to get really real with you. Obviously, I haven’t posted in a very long time. I apologize (mainly to my sister because the is the only faithful reader that I have). I was not motivated to write because I wasn’t getting a lot of views, I didn’t think my content or photos were as good as the other blogs I followed and I was honestly very disappointed in myself. It took me a while, but I finally realized that I was setting my expectations too high for a myself. I am not a writer, I have no knowledge of coding and I am not very savvy with a computer, I don’t own a nice camera and I don’t have any photo editing applications, and quite frankly, I don’t have the most interesting life to write about. Anyway, I am the type of person that wants to pick up a new skill or hobby and be the greatest at it immediately. This new blogging hobby wasn’t what I expected it to be quickly enough, and I decided that this must not be for me.
However, I missed it. I missed writing down my post ideas in my little pink book. I missed the clicking of the keyboard as I typed and re-typed the content of the posts. I missed getting the notifications that my sister (again, shoutout to my biggest fan) had read and commented on my post. And now, I have decided to give it another shot. This time around I am to setting my expectations a little lower, writing about what I think is interesting, and just enjoying it.
I plan on writing occasionally when inspiration strikes. Before I scheduled posts and set deadlines, and I think that stressed me out more than anything. Instead, I want to be transparent. I want to write about what is really going on in my life. When I have a breakout, I want to share with you how I treated it and got it to go away before an event. When I try out a Pinterest recipe and it ultimately fails (like most of them do), I want to share the experience. When I realize that I am turning 22 soon and I want to age like Jennifer Aniston, I want to share with you my attempts at establishing a skincare routine.
I am excited to try this out again, and I look forward to all the adventures that this year will bring.
