My last post was over a month ago. I have gotten a million questions since then on why I “stopped blogging” or “quit my blog.” And to answer that question, I haven’t quit.
Did I take a break? Yes. Was it much needed? Yes.
I could have just continued posting and acted like it didn’t happen, but I want to be a real and raw as possible with all of you. I also want to let you know that it is OK to take a break. Actually, it’s necessary.
Social media is amazing. The connections made and the opportunities that arise from Instagram and Facebook and blogging, they are all amazing. But it’s also a lot. It’s a step away from reality when sometimes you need to put yourself back into reality for a while to regather your thoughts and make sure you’re happy, not just your followers.
The past month or so, I haven’t been blogging. I haven’t been taking pictures of everything I do. I haven’t been posting on Instagram a lot.
But I have been spending time with my family more, learning more new things about my husband, and going to fun events with my pup.
It is SO important to step away, step back, or totally dis involve yourself with social media. It’s a HIGHLIGHT reel. And as soon as I find myself somewhat obsessing over posting every day, struggling to create content, and losing inspiration, I know it’s time to take a step back and recuperate.
We moved into a house, I am in-between jobs, and I have honestly just been dealing with LIFE. I have been going through things mentally. I’ve been focusing on my relationship, growing myself as a person, and just life. Real life.
And honestly, to put it bluntly, I have had way more important things to deal with rather than posting about shoes, sales, or anything for that matter.
I love blogging, I don’t think I will ever quit. I have been doing this for just over a year now and I can see myself doing it for the rest of my life. I will never shut down this website and I will never quit doing what I love.
But life gets in the way sometimes, as it should.
I’m not going anywhere. (Unless you want me to, then you can totally unfollow me and act like this post never happened.)
I love you all. Everyone who understands and everyone who just gets it.
