It’s not goodbye, it’s see ya later.
I’ve recently come to the realization that while I feel I’ve mastered my personal style, I’ve spent so much time focused on outer beauty when what I really need now more than ever is to focus on my inner being.
I once read somewhere to never fear losing your job, but losing passion for your work. That’s exactly why I’ve decided to take a step back to reset – after all, I’m already doing just that in all other areas of my life, so why not do the same with my blog? Sometimes it’s necessary to step back in order to launch forward, to be better than you were before.
Here’s the thing – it’s been nearly three years since I published my first blog post, but the fulfillment blogging once brought me has since dwindled. These photos were captured back in May, and looking back at these images makes me realize that fundamental truth I was too stubborn to see then but that I see now. My blog is no longer an accurate reflection of me. I look at it and see the person I once was, the person I spent so many years chasing. And now that I’m finally here, I know in my heart my blog isn’t all it can be – it’s become inauthentic. So, I need this time to figure out what that “something” will be. I need time to figure out me, and who I am now. To do that it’s necessary for me to look inward and disconnect for a time.
Alas, to all my followers I bid you a temporary adieu. And remember, it’s not goodbye, it’s see ya later.
