I have a passion. A lot of passions, actually. But in a world of 40 hour work weeks and university expectations, passions sometimes fall to the wayside.
writing. coffee. fashion. organization.
For the sake of my own sanity, I left my blog alone for a few years, having lost the true passion that allowed me to document my life in it before. I needed space. Space from my writing, space to remember why I started this thing in the first place.
Why did I start? Because writing is therapeutic. But when you’ve lived as I have, sometimes that introspection can bring you down. I learned a lot about myself in my first round of blogging, but times have changed, and so have I.
So I’m starting a new chapter in the book that is my blog. I’ve created a clean slate and am going to focus on my passions.
writing. coffee. fashion. organization. and so much more.
So much stress in my life comes from defining myself by what I’m doing. I work full time. I go to school full time. Being a wife and a homemaker is a full time job. I let these things weigh me down, and I feel heavy.
I LOVE my job. I love it. And I love my university. As much as I hate it, I also love it, and what it’s doing for my life. Most of all though, I am SO in love with my husband. So what the hell do I have to stress about?
Here’s what’s going to happen: I’m going to combine some passions and make some magic. What do I have to do every day? Get dressed. What do I love? Fashion. Clothes. All of the above.
So what’s going to happen here?
OOTDs (outfit of the day, for those of you who don’t live in the world of hashtags) are going to be my thing for a bit. I’m going to try it out, see how it goes. Stay tuned, if you want to. Or not. Because this isn’t about anyone else, and I think that’s what my hiatus taught me. I’m going to write about what I love and hope I fall in love with writing once again.
Other things may pop up here and there as well, so if you hate fashion, don’t fret.
But for now, I’m hitting “publish” on a number of posts I’ve kept on the sidelines. Here goes nothing.
