My Unexpected Break From Blogging

Hello, you beautiful people! I know you have not heard from me in a while, but I'm sure you can guess from the title that I took an unexpected break from blogging.

I honestly had no idea I was going to take one. It kind of just happened. I don't know if I necessarily have a good reason for taking a break, but I feel like it was most definitely needed. Lately, I have been feeling completely overwhelmed by my schedule and I guess I just needed some "me time" to get my ish together.

I didn't really mean for this to be a life update, but I guess this kind of is. Although work isn't stressful, I've been questioning my current path and asking myself, "Is this going to help me get to where I want to be in the future?" To be honest, I don't really know, but what I do know is that God has placed me where he wants me to be right now. In the meantime, I'm trying to focus on smaller issues, so I can eventually work my way up to the big ones, like my career path.

As of this month, all of my school loans have kicked in and they have been hitting me hard. I'm realizing it's hard to save money, which has been very discouraging. The joys of being an adult.

Recently I've been trying to workout and get my body back into a shape that I am happy with. I had been walking outside at a local park after work and I really enjoyed it. It gave me piece of mind and that was something that I desperately needed.

I did take a break from walking two weeks ago. I honestly just wasn't feeling it. I would be exhausted from work and the last thing I wanted to do at 5:00 was go in the heat to walk/run at a park. Although those two weeks off from walking was nice, that's when I realized I was slacking on goals I had set for myself.

There is a light at the end of the tunnel though! This week I am back to walking/running at the park and I am back to blogging. 

Blogging is a passion of mine and although I do think I needed a little time off from it, I do feel like it shouldn't have been this long. I was in a little slump and I felt uninspired, but I hope that I can go hard and create content about the things I love.

Besides the boring stuff, I did have a lot of good times on my break from blogging. Here are a few fun updates that I'd like to share!

1. My birthday was at the end of July. Yay for being 23!

2. I ended up making my sorority's Alumnae Board.

3. I've dropped a few pounds.

4. I kind of have a new crush. (Who knows how that will go though.)

5. My best friend Ashley came home from grad school this past weekend to spend time with her family, and of course, ME. I hadn't seen her since May, so it was a breath of fresh air being able to spend time with her.

I'm making a promise to myself and to y'all that I will do better with posting consistently! I already have a post in mind that I'm so excited to share with y'all later this upcoming weekend :)
P.S. I'm participating in a Link Up called Let Your Light Shine Thursday! Go check it out.
Love and desserts,
